Town of Caneadea
8911 St Rte 19
PO Box 596
Caneadea, NY 14717 -0596

Facility:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 15 Title 5 Stream Disturbance
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification
Article 15 Title 15 Water Supply

Project is Located:

Caneadea, Allegany County


Project Description:

The Town of Caneadea proposes to extend water supply and distribution mains of its Houghton Water District ("Extension No. 1") and take a supply of water in amounts estimated to average 36,000 gallons per day (gpd) from 2 new wells. The 2 new wells, which each have a safe yield of 2.1 million of gallons per day, will also serve the existing Houghton Water District. Total combined demand for the Houghton Water District and the Extension No. 1 is 277,405 gpd (average daily demand), and 546,810 gpd (maximum daily demand). The Houghton Water District Extension No. 1 will provide water service to approximately 233 units along the NYS Rte. 19 corridor. The existing water supply well will be retained as a backup source.

The proposal consists of installation of approximately 52,000 linear feet of 8-inch and 12-inch watermain and associated valves, fire hydrants, and appurtenances, as well as a water treatment system at the new well sites. The watermain will be directional drilled under a State Protected Stream, Tributary 131 of the Genesee River [Standard C (TS)] and Caneadea Creek. The remaining streams and federal wetlands watermain crossings will be directional drilled or open trenched.
The project site is located along a 7-mile section of NYS Rte. 19 from Houghton to the Caneadea and Belfast townline.

Niagara County

Applicant:

Globe Metallurgical Inc
PO Box 157
Beverly, OH 45715 -0157

Facility:

Globe Metallurgical Inc
3807 Highland Ave
Niagara Falls, NY 14305

Application ID:

9-2911-00078/00009

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Niagara Falls, Niagara County


Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Conservation Law (ECL) and Title V of the Federal Clean Air Act Amendments, and made a tentative determination to approve the permit renewal for Globe Metallurgical located at 3807 Highland Ave. Globe produces silicon metals in two submerged arc semi-enclosed electric furnaces. The facility is a major source of emissions of sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides and therefore subject to Title V permitting requirements of 40 CFR 70 and 6NYCRR Part 201-6. Since the permit was renewed in 2004 the facility has not been in operation. In preparation for re-starting operations, the baghouses associated with each furnace have been upgraded. Also, the tapping fumes from each furnace are now directed to the respective furnace baghouse. Globe as a major source of hazardous air pollutants (HAPS) facility is subject to the area source requirements for ferroalloy production facility National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPs) 40 CFR Part 63.11524 Subpart YYYYYY promulgated in December 2008. The previous permit incorporated conditions reflecting the Compliance Assurance Monitoring (CAM) requirements of 40 CFR Part 64. The NESHAP satisfies CAM monitoring requirements and exempts the furnaces from CAM applicability. Particulate emissions from the furnaces are subject to process weight emission limits for ferroalloy furnaces as determined by Table 5 of 6 NYCRR Part 212.9(e). As a major source of NOx the facility is subject to the NOx RACT compliance requirements of 6 NYCRR Part 212.10. A NOx RACT analysis has been submitted and this Department and the USEPA have determined that there are no feasible control technologies available. Therefore, RACT, as no control, is incorporated into the permit limiting NOx emissions to 87.6 pph per furnace and 767.3 tons per year of NOx. The RACT compliance plan was submitted to the USEPA as a source specific SIP revision. The coal and petroleum coke used in the furnace charge are subject to sulfur in fuel limitations of 6 NYCRR Part 225-1.2(d) Table 2. A general variance pursuant to Part 225-1.5(a) will allow the use of coke exceeding the sulfur limitation in combination with coal in the furnace charge provided that the emissions from the combined usage do not exceed sulfur dioxide emissions, on the basis of pounds of sulfur per million BTU heat input, at a rate greater than that from fuels meeting mandated sulfur limits.

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.
