The Discharge Notification Requirement has been substituted with a narrated single paragraph.

The modification also includes several other minor reporting modifications. The facility has surface discharge into the West Branch of the Delaware River, a class C(t) water. DEC seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision on permit issuance.

Montgomery County

Applicant:

Hero Group Inc

Latham, NY 12110

Facility:

Hero Group Inc (BEECH-NUT) Manufacturing Plant
St Rte 5S - N Side - 1½ Mis W of St Rte 30|FLORIDA Business Park
Florida, NY

Application ID:

4-2726-00061/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Florida, Montgomery County


Project Description:

The Department has proposed an Air State Facility Permit for the modification application that was received for the Hero Group Inc. (Beech Nut) facility located at the Town of Florida Business Park, State Route 5S, Town of Florida, County of Montgomery, owned by Hero Group Inc., 13 British American Boulevard, Latham, New York. The application is for the modification of the facility's current Air State Facility Permit for the construction of the new infant food manufacturing facility. The facility will process raw fruits and vegetables into infant food and produce infant cereal. The facility has changed the number and size of the boilers to be installed at the new facility as well as the type of fuel used in the boilers. The facility will be installing two boilers (one 99.7 mmBtu/hr boiler and one 93.3 mmBtu/hr boiler) firing natural gas only instead of four boilers (one 99.7 mmBtu/hr boiler and three 80 mmBtu/hr boilers) firing natural gas and fuel oil for the generation of process steam. As a result of these changes, the proposed modified permit for the facility will no longer require the emission caps for oxides of nitrogen (NOx), carbon monoxide (CO), and sulfur dioxide (SO2) based on the lower potential to emit of the noted contaminants due to the reduction in the number of boilers and using only natural gas. In order to remain at an emission level below Title V applicability of 50 tons per year for volatile organic compounds (VOC), the facility will continue to be subject to the enforceable permit condition which will limit or cap emissions at a level which is less than 50 tons per year for VOC as contained in the applicants current Air State Facility Permit.

Persons wishing to inspect the subject Air State Facility 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 below. It is recommended that an appointment be made to confirm the availability of the subject files. The DEC will endeavor to make the files available within two business days of contact, during normal business hours (8:30 AM through 4:45 PM), unless the requestor wishes to inspect the files at a later date.

DEC will evaluate the application and the comments received on it to determine whether to hold a public hearing. A public hearing may be legislative or adjudicatory. A legislative public hearing is a proceeding which provides an additional opportunity for public comment. DEC's determination to hold a legislative public hearing will be based on whether a significant degree of public interest exists. If a legislative public hearing is to be held, a Notice of Hearing will be published which will include the time and place of the hearing and submitting comments. The applicant and all persons who have filed comments on the permit will be notified by mail of the public hearing.

Comments and requests for a legislative hearing should be in writing and addressed to the Department representative listed below.

An adjudicatory public hearing is a trial type proceeding which provides the opportunity for adjudication on the basis of evidence, including direct testimony and cross examination. An adjudicatory hearing is held only if substantive and significant issues relating to any findings or determinations the Department is required to make pursuant to the Environmental Conservation Law exists. A copy of the Department's permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Department's web site at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/regs/4483.html

If comments are received which raise significant issues or provide additional relevant information, the Department may modify the draft Air State Facility Permit.
