Co Rte 12 S & E Side - E of Kline RD|N of Pleasant Lake - Fww BR-1
Schroeppel, NY

Application ID:

7-3554-00186/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation

Project is Located:

Schroeppel, Oswego County


Project Description:

The applicant proposes a new mining facility in the Town of Schroeppel on the west side of County Route 12 approximately 800 feet south of Kline Road. The proposed sand and gravel mine would be 29.3 acres on a 64.83 acre parcel owned by A. J. Montclair, Inc. and the first 5 year permit term proposes to disturb up to 9.7 acres. The new access road into the mine facility would cross state wetland BR-1 and impact approximately one-half acre and the applicant proposes one acre of compensatory wetland mitigation on site. The access road would be removed at the cessation of mining and the mine would be reclaimed and revegetated to open space wildlife habitat. The application and mining plans are available for review in the Syracuse Office.

Tompkins County

Applicant:

Cornell University
300 Day Hall
Ithaca, NY 14853 -2801

Facility:

Cornell University Main Campus
College Ave
Ithaca, NY 14853

Application ID:

7-5007-00030/00048

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Ithaca, Tompkins County


Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law and made a tentative decision to issue an Air State Facility Permit to Cornell University that will authorize the construction of two natural gas-fired stationary combustion turbines (with ultra low sulfur diesel as a backup) and two emergency diesel generators.
Cornell currently operates a central heating plant consisting of six fossil fuel fired boilers. Cornell is proposing to construct two Solar Titan 130 gas turbine generators with a nominal electrical output of 15 MW, each. Each turbine will be equipped with a duct burner and heat recovery steam generator, a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system to reduce emissions of nitrogen oxides and a catalytic oxidation system to reduce emissions of CO and volatile organic compounds. The SCR systems will use aqueous ammonia, and aqueous ammonia will be stored on-site. Two emergency diesel generators will be installed to provide black start capability and emergency power generation.
The DEC's proposed air permit will impose annual emissions caps on nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, and volatile organic compounds. The DEC's proposed air permit will also establish concentration emission limits on NOx, CO and ammonia. The limits are 2.5 ppm NOx when firing gas; 9.0 ppm NOx when firing ultra low sulfur diesel; and 10 ppm CO and 5 ppm ammonia, regardless of the fuel being fired. The concentrations are corrected to 15 % oxygen. Higher NOx and CO limits are proposed when the ambient temperature is below 0 degrees F. The stationary gas turbines are subject to the federal Standard of Performance for Stationary Combustion Turbines and the federal National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Stationary Combustion Turbines (while firing ultra low sulfur diesel). The emergency diesel generators are subject to the federal Standard of Performance for Stationary Compression Ignition Internal Combustion Engines.
Potential emissions of fine particulate matter and sulfuric acid mist are projected to exceed the thresholds in the EPA's Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) regulations. Cornell has applied for a PSD permit with the EPA, and the EPA has prepared a draft permit which will impose emissions limits for fine particulate matter and sulfuric acid mist. EPA has published (or will soon publish) a notice in the Ithaca Journal and will handle comments regarding that permit. While the DEC's draft State Facility Permit includes the EPA's draft PSD permit, comments on the draft PSD permit should be directed to: US EPA , Region 2, Air Programs Branch, 290 Broadway, New York, NY, 10007, Attention: Mr. Steven Riva, (212) 637 - 4074.

This project is subject to the Department's Environmental Justice Policy and an enhanced public participation plan has been prepared and accepted as a component of application completeness. As part of the plan, a document repository has been established near the project area that contains application and project related materials. Information on the repository location and other outreach components of the plan is available from the identified DEC contact.
