Notice of Complete Application
Notice of Availability of Draft Permit Renewal
Notice of Public Comment Period

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has reviewed the Hazardous Waste Management permit application submitted by Ciba Corporation, and has made a tentative determination to issue a 6NYCRR Part 373 permit renewal. State regulations require that the public be given 45 days to comment on the draft permit. The public comment period begins on September 23, 2009 and ends on November 10, 2009.

Facility Description

Ciba Corporation owned and operated a wastewater pre-treatment plant in the immediate vicinity of their Glens Falls Main Plant Site. The Plant has been closed and has ceased manufacturing operations. The pre-treatment plant, during optimum operation, produced approximately 100-125 cubic yards of dewatered treatment sludges per week on a six days per week schedule. The sludge primarily consisted of metal hydroxides and is classified as a hazardous waste. Ciba disposed of the sludge in a hazardous waste landfill it operated on a 7.1 acre tract of land leased from the Town of Queensbury (located on Jenkensville Road near Ridge Road). An adjacent surface impoundment was used to collect leachate from the landfill cell and runoff from a truck washing station. The Permittee performed closure activities for the landfill during summer/fall of 1989 and completed closure in spring/summer of 1990. The Post-Closure Plan for the landfill is contained in Appendix V-C of the draft permit.

Tentative Determination

After review of the permit application, DEC has found it to be complete. Based upon the complete application, DEC has made a tentative determination to reissue the Part 373 Permit to the facility for post-closure care of a closed hazardous waste disposal facility, and has prepared a draft permit pursuant to the regulations in Part 373-2 (Final Status Standards for Owners and Operators of Hazardous Waste Treatment, Storage and Disposal Facilities) and all other applicable hazardous waste management laws and regulations.

On the basis of the approved Closure Plans, the landfill and associated surface impoundment were physically closed. Modules IV and V of the permit address the post-closure care requirements for the closed units, including a post-closure groundwater monitoring program that is designed to monitor and evaluate the impact from the closed units and require corrective actions that may be necessary for these units. No further action for the landfill or impoundment is required except those requirements contained in Modules IV and V, and attachments and appendices of this permit. Module III of the permit addresses corrective action implementation, as authorized by Part 373-2.6, for any additional solid waste management units that may be identified at the facility.

Document Availability

Copies of the draft permit and Fact Sheet are available for inspection at the following locations: Crandall Library, Glens Falls; DEC Central Office, Division of Solid and Hazardous Materials, 625 Broadway - 9th Floor, Albany (contact for technical information: Gary Casper (518) 402-8594); and DEC Region 5 Office, 232 Golf Course Road, Warrensburg (contact: Richard Speidel (518) 623-1286). A copy of the Fact Sheet, which summarizes the permitting process and includes descriptions of the application and draft permit, may be obtained from the DEC contact persons.

How to Provide Your Comments

All comments will be considered in making a final decision on issuance of the permit. Should DEC approve the permit, a response to any comments submitted will be issued to identify any changes from the draft permit, and describe and respond to the issues raised. A notice of the decision will be sent to each person who submits written comments or who requests such notice.

In lieu of, or in addition to the submission of comments, interested persons may request a public hearing. Any request for a public hearing must be in writing, stating the nature of the issues proposed to be raised in the hearing. Comments on the draft permit and/or request for a hearing must be sent to: Richard Speidel, NYSDEC, Division of Environmental Permits, 232 Golf Course Road, Warrensburg, NY 12885-0220.

All comments and/or requests for a public hearing must be submitted no later than November 10, 2009.
