ENB Region 9 Completed Applications 11/26/2008

Allegany County

Applicant:

Hyland Facility Associates
25 Greens Hill Ln
Rutland, VT 05702

Facility:

Hyland Landfill
6653 Herdman Rd
Angelica, NY 14709

Application ID:

9-0232-00003/00012

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Angelica, Allegany County


Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to approve this application for an Air Title V permit for the Hyland Facility Associates Landfill located at 6653 Herdman Road, Angelica, New York. This permit action is a requirement of 40CFR60.752(b) Subpart WWW - Standards of Performance for Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) Landfills, which mandates each MSW landfill with a design capacity greater than 2.5 million cubic meters to obtain a federal Title V operating permit. Hyland Landfill is not subject to the control requirements of 40 CFR60 Subpart WWW since the Tier 2 non-methane organic compounds (NMOC) estimated emission rate is less than 50 Mg/yr. However, the facility has operated a landfill gas collection and control system since 2003 to reduce emissions and control odors at the facility. The draft permit allows operation of all existing sources at the facility, including the active landfill gas collection and control system as addressed under state requirements in the permit. This permit action includes increased monitoring and reporting for the gas collection system and a Contingency Plan to address any potential landfill gas odors in the community. This permit action does not involve operation of any additional sources and does not increase emissions from the existing permitted facility.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.7(b)(9) and 201-6.4(c), the Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) has the authority to bar issuance of any Title V Facility Permit if it is determined not to be in compliance with applicable requirements of the Clean Air Act or 6NYCRR Part 201.

Persons wishing to inspect the subject Title V files, including the application with all relevant supporting materials, the draft permit, and all other materials available to the DEC (the "permitting authority") that are relevant to this permitting decision should contact the DEC representative listed below.

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Wheatfield, Niagara 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 000 1988), pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 750-1.18, New York State's Environmental Benefit Permit Strategy (EBPS). The following changes to the permit are proposed:

Based on the application submitted by the permittee, the maximum design flow rate has been decreased to 144,000 gpd. The daily maximum (DM) for flow has been changed accordingly. Based on water quality analysis, the effluent limits for the following has been changed: pH, BOD5, Total Residual Chlorine, Total Iron, Total Cadmium, Total Copper, Total Lead, Total Arsenic. Based on evaluation of the Discharge Monitoring Report, the following has been changed: the permit limit for the DM for Total Zinc, the action level for the DM for Total Nickel. The action level for the DM for Total Silver has been changed by converting the practical quantitation limit to a mass-based value. An effluent limit for total dissolved solids has been added. Action levels for whole effluent toxicity testing has been added. The effluent limit for Total Mercury and Total Cyanide has been removed from the permit since it has not been detected in 3 years of monitoring data. Instead a short term high intensity monitoring program has been added. A compliance schedule has been added requiring the permittee to submit an engineering report detailing the methods the facility will use to bring the parameters into compliance with the effluent limits. Discharge Notification Act Requirements have been added. The modification also includes several other minor reporting modifications.

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.
