Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Southport, Chemung County

Project Description:

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) is pursuing a Department Initiated Modification (DIM) to the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Permit (NY 003 5742, DEC Identification #: 8-0736-00003), the Chemung County Elmira Sewer District Wastewater Treatment Plant in Chemung County, pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 750-1.18, New York State's Environmental Benefit Permit Strategy (EBPS). The changes to the permit are as follows:

Combined Sewer Overflows (CSO) - Characterization and Monitoring Plan were approved on August 22, 2007. Phase 1 of the LTCP is due 12 months following this approval. The County requested for a new submission date (August 21, 2009) due to contractual issues.
Chesapeake Bay Nutrient Requirements - The NY State Tributary Strategy directs that routine nutrient monitoring, action levels and a schedule of compliance be added to SPDES permits. Action levels for these parameters are included in this permit.
Effluent Limitations - Flow: the monitoring type was changed from monthly average to 12 months rolling average because of the wet weather effect on the flow. Mercury: EPA Method 1631 is in the compliance schedule of this draft permit. Additionally, the Dental Amalgam Rule requires dentists to install equipment to capture and recycle mercury used in amalgam (for fillings) within two years and notification sent to their local wastewater treatment plant. Aluminum, Antimony, Phenols, Copper: the Water Quality Based Efflent Limit for these parameters have changed to reflect effluent limitations that would be compatible with satisfactory maintenance of the receing water quality.

The modification also includes several other minor reporting modifications. A continuation of the Discharge Notification Act requirements was added. The Chemung County Elmira Sewer District Wastewater Treatment Plant has surface discharge into the Chemung River, a class C water. Additional information including the current permit, renewal applications, and supporting documentation may be obtained from or inspected at the DEC central office in Albany. Substantive comments on the permit or requests for hearing or both must be submitted in writing to the contact person. DEC seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision on permit issuance.

Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Rochester, Monroe County


Project Description:

The Department has received an application from Rochester District Heating Cooperative (RDHC) for an Air State Facility Permit for its Rochester Facility, to replace the current Title V Facility Permit. The RDHC Rochester Facility produces heating and process steam, as well as hot water, for several buildings in the City of Rochester. Emission sources at this facility include four natural gas fired boilers totaling 700 million BTU per hour heat input. Three of the four boilers can burn No. 2 fuel oil as a backup fuel. The RDHC Facility is currently subject to 6 NYCRR Part 201-6 (Title V) regulations due to potential emissions of carbon monoxide (CO) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx) greater than 100 tons per year each.
RDHC has proposed to restrict facility-wide emissions of CO and NOx to below 100 tons per year each, the Title V major source thresholds, and the Part 227-2 Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) threshold for NOx. CO and NOx emissions will be restricted by limiting boiler operation, and by permanent modification of the burners on two of the four boilers to decrease their capacity from 210 million BTU per hour to 99 million BTU per hour each. The reduction in boiler capacity will reduce facility capacity from 700 to 478 million BTU per hour, and make these boilers subject to 40CFR 60 Subpart Dc standards for small steam generating units, rather than the more stringent 40CFR 60 Subpart Db standards which apply to larger units and require continuous monitoring.
RHDC also proposes to continue to restrict facility SO2 emissions below the 40CFR 52.21 Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) 100 ton per year threshold by continuing the restriction on backup fuel oil use at the facility to less than 500,000 gallons per year.
In response, the Department has generated a Draft Permit restricting potential CO and NOx emissions by limiting fuel use during any 12 month period. Draft Permit conditions limit facility-wide emission of CO and NOx to less than 99 tons per year each on a 12-month rolling basis. Fuel usage data shall be recorded, and calculations of monthly CO and NOx emissions and 12-month rolling totals of emissions will be required to verify compliance. These records are to be maintained for a minimum of five years, and must be made available with all supporting data to Department inspectors upon request.
The application and Draft Permit are available for review at the NYSDEC Region 8 office. The Draft Permit is also available on line at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/dardata/boss/afs/draft_asf.html

Availability of Application Documents:

Filed application documents, and Department draft permits where applicable, are available for inspection during normal business hours at the address of the contact person. To ensure timely service at the time of inspection, it is recommended that an appointment be made with the contact person.

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation

Project is Located:

Galen, Wayne County


Project Description:

The applicant proposes to expand an existing 33.6 acre surface sand and gravel mine to approximately 81.5 acres, an increase of 47.9 acres. The project site is the applicant's property on County Route 247. The mine is intended to operate as a traditional surface extraction of the Palmyra series of gravelly sandy loams which is the predominate soil type on the site. No changes are proposed for the mining operation as a result of this expansion. Mining will continue to occur below the local water table. Excavation will be done by mechanical equipment, standard for sand and gravel mining operations, and for removal of material below the local water table. Mining is proposed to remove approximately 2.5 million cubic yards of aggregate sand and gravel over the estimated 50 year operational life of the mine. Material will be stockpiled as unprocessed "run-of-bank", or processed with portable screens. Maximum processing rates for the screening operations will not exceed 150 tons-per-hour (TPH). Reclamation will occur concurrently with mining operations. Final reclamation will restore the site to a total of +/-64 acres of open water surface within uniformly graded and revegetated open land. Upland reclamation will include the replacement of stockpiled topsoil, and reseeding with an approved USDA SCS seed mixture. The reviewed Life-Of-Mine (LOM) expansion area is 47.9 acres.
