The asphalt plant and fixed plant run online power. Facility emissions of Oxides of Nitrogen and Carbon Monoxide are limited below Title V applicability thresholds by capping annual hot mix asphalt production to 1,000,000 tons (based on rolling 12 month average), and by capping the hours of operation of the generator for the aggregate plant to 5,000 hours (based on rolling 12 month average). New Source Performance Standards 40 CFR 60 Subpart OOO applies to Emission Units U-AG001 and U-AG002. New Source Performance Standards 40 CFR 60 Subpart I apply to Emission Unit 1-Plant. 6NYCRR Subpart 227 applies to the nonexempt generator set and 6NYCRR Subpart 225 identifies fuel use and composition standards.

Project Description:

The Department of Environmental Conservation has tentatively determined to approve an application for an Excavation and Fill permit for disturbance to the bed and banks of Twaffskill Creek, Class C, for the purpose of installing a box culvert to carry an access road and stabilization of eroded shoreline areas.

The permit would authorize approximately 9,000 square feet of stream bank disturbance on both the north and south sides of the creek for excavation, placement of a geotextile barrier and installation of stone rip rap. Rip rap will be keyed into a depth of 20 feet and live stakes will be used intermittently to further stabilize banks.
