ENB Region 3 Completed Applications 09/02/2009

Dutchess County

Applicant:

International Business Machines Corporation
New Orchard Rd
Armonk, NY 10504

Facility:

IBM Corp South Rd Facility
2455 South Rd
Poughkeepsie, NY 12601

Application ID:

3-1346-00035/00123

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 27 Title 9 Resource Conservation and Recovery Act

Project is Located:

Poughkeepsie, Dutchess County


Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a renewal hazardous waste management permit in accordance with 6 NYCRR Part 373 to International Business Machines Corporation's (IBM) South Road Facility (EPA I.D. No.: NYD080480732) for the operation of a hazardous waste storage and disposal facility. A timely and sufficient renewal application was submitted on March 13, 2007, and under the provisions of State Administrative Procedures Act (SAPA) Section 401(2) the current permit continues in effect until the NYSDEC makes a final decision on the renewal application.

The facility is situated on 383 acres, located west of South Road (Rt. 9) and east of the Hudson River, in the Town of Poughkeepsie. The main plant is involved primarily with designing, manufacturing, assembling, and testing of large information systems, the components of these systems, and the software to be used with these systems; and providing information technology services. The two processes currently in operation are Metal-Mask process and the Large Panel Assembly and Test Process line. The facility manages wastes generated on the site by IBM, its contractors and tenants. It also receives wastes from other IBM locations for storage. Five types of hazardous wastes (organic and miscellaneous waste, caustics, acids, oxidizers, and flammables) are generated and stored in separate rooms. Non-hazardous wastes and virgin chemicals are also stored in separate rooms. The total hazardous waste storage capacity of 103,550 gallons, which is equivalent to 1,882 55-gallon drums, has been requested in the permit renewal application. While this represents the maximum potential storage for hazardous waste in this building, a significant portion of this capacity is used for storage of virgin material and non-hazardous waste. Two aboveground tanks previously used to store hazardous waste were closed in May 2008. The facility also operates a Corrective Measures Program to address contamination from historical releases at the site. The Department has made an assessment of the need for corrective action and has made a tentative determination that there has been no release of hazardous wastes or hazardous constituents to the environment that would institute corrective action.

The application, fact sheet and draft permit are available for public review at the contact person listed below. Copies of these documents are also available at: NYSDEC Division of Solid and Hazardous Materials, Albany NY, attn: Mr. Sitansu Ghosh, (518) 402-8610.
