Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a renewal for the Title V Air Facility Permit for the operation of the Keymark Corp. Plant facility located at 1188 Cayadutta Street (Route 334), Village of Fonda, County of Montgomery, owned by Keymark Corp. of Fonda, New York. The application is for the renewal of the facility's existing Title V. The initial Title V permit for the facility was issued on August 3, 2000. The facility is an aluminum extruding facility which performs alloying, billet making, extruding, die making, anodizing, thermal break operations, and painting/surface coating. The facility includes an aluminum melting furnace and holder, extrusion presses, anodizing tanks, and two surface coating lines. The emissions from the two surface coating lines are controlled by three thermal oxidizers, one for one line and two for the other line. The applicant has agreed to permit conditions which will limit the emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) from the two surface coating lines in order to meet regulatory requirements. The VOC emissions will be limited through the use of thermal oxidizers operating at prescribed minimum temperatures. The applicant has also agreed to permit conditions which will limit particulate emissions in order to meet several regulatory requirements. The particulate emissions will be limited through the use of various methods. Filters will be used on some equipment as one method of limiting the particulate emissions. The applicant will be required to maintain records and report this data to verify compliance with permit conditions and limits.

In accordance with 6 NYCRR 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 6 NYCRR Part 201.

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Rensselaer, Rensselaer County


Project Description:

The Department has made a determination to approve the permittee's request for a modification to its existing SPDES permit. The facility is currently under construction and is a 635 MW combined cycle, natural gas fired power plant. Upon commencement of operation the facility will discharge treated cooling tower blowdown, and wastewater directly to the Hudson River. Stormwater will also be collected on site, treated and discharged to an unnamed tributary of the Hudson River. The proposed modifications to the SPDES permit include a name change to reflect the current owner and the deletion of references to the newspaper recycling facility that was proposed for an adjacent property and never constructed. In addition, the Department added one new internal outfall and one new stormwater outfall with appropriate limits and monitoring. The Department also added new parameters, including low-level mercury, and in order to reflect changes in the operation the SPDES permit was modified to include updated parameters and Whole Effluent Toxicity action levels. The modified SPDES permit also includes 24 newly-authorized water treatment chemicals and updated Industrial Best Management Practices. The project is located in the Port of Rensselaer.
