Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Pawling, Dutchess County


Project Description:

The Department of Environmental Conservation has conducted a full technical review and made a determination to modify the SPDES permit referenced above in accordance with the Environmental Benefit Permit Strategy. This modification is undertaken pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 750-1.18 (b) (1) and (4), as well as 750-1.19. The permittee also requested that the permit be modified to reflect an upgrade that would result in an increase WWTP capacity from 0.28 mgd to 0.32 mgd. The facility discharges into an intermittent class C(T) stream. Thus, the permit limits are intermittent stream effluent limits and will not change due to the increased capacity of the facility. A water quality review has been conducted for the increased design flow of 0.32 million gallons per day (mgd). Current permit limits were continued, and mass loads (lbs/day) have been revised per the modified design flow in accordance with 40 CFR 122.45 for CBOD5, TSS. Current permit limits were continued for Settleable Solids, pH, Nitrogen, Ammonia (as NH3), Dissolved Oxygen, Fecal Coliform and Total Residual Chlorine. Effluent Temperature monitoring has been continued and monitoring for Phosphorus has been added. NY 016 5891

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Highlands, Orange County


Project Description:

The Department has prepared a Draft permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) and Title V of the Federal Clean Air Act Amendments and has made a tentative determination to issue a modification to the Title V Air Facility Permit for the US Army Garrison located at West Point, Orange County, New York. Proposed work at the facility is being undertaken to implement recommendations contained in the Defense Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) plan enacted November 9, 2005. As part of the realignment and relocation of resources, the US Military Academy Preparatory School (US MAPS) will be relocated from Fort Monmouth New Jersey to the US Military Academy (USMA) at West Point. Work includes relocation of a portion of Sinclair Pond Brook (Class C) as part of construction of the new US Military Academy Preparatory School (USMAPS).

The USMA at West Point facility includes an education institution, an active Army installation, and infrastructure to support facility operations. Potential emissions from the facility of sulfur dioxide, oxides of nitrogen (NOx), carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds, and perchloroethlyene are above major source thresholds as defined by the Federal Clean Air Act. Therefore, the facility is required to obtain a Title V permit.

Modification of the Title V permit is required for the relocation of the Transportation Motor Pool (including fuel dispensing and vehicle painting processes), the addition of a landfill gas flare at the existing landfill, new gasoline fueling station, and new boilers and generators at various locations. New emissions sources at the USMA will result in an increase in potential NOx emissions of 13.9 tons per year, which is below the level of a significant net emission increase (25 tons per year), as specified in 6NYCRR Part 231.

The following regulations are applicable to the facility: 6NYCRR Parts 200, 201, 202, 211, 212, 225, 226, 227, 228, 231, and 232, and 40 CFR 60 Subparts Db, Dc, and IIII, 40 CFR 63 Subpart M, and 40 CFR 92 Subpart B. By acceptance of this permit, the permittee agrees that the permit is contingent upon strict compliance with the ECL, all applicable regulations, the General Conditions specified and any Special Conditions included as part of this permit.

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. The Draft Permit and Permit Review Report may be viewed and printed from the Department web site at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/32249.html.

DEC will evaluate the application and the comments received on it to determine whether to hold a public hearing.

Project Description:

The Department has approved plans for construction at the above referenced site and intends to issue the above referenced permits. Proposed work includes installation of a new concrete service spillway resulting in excavation of 430 cubic yards (CY) of material and fill of approximately 80 CY of concrete. Dewatering will be accomplished via sandbag berm and flow will be siphoned downstream in order to maintain normal flows and safeguard acquatic life downstream. A 10" low-level drain pipe and gate valve will be installed in the dam and downstream flow will then be maintained via sandbag berms as directed to the new pipe when it is complete and siphons are removed. Approximately 1,495 CY of material will be excavated from an area adjacent to the dam to create an earthen auxiliary spillway that will be seeded with grass at completion. The embankment elevation of the dam will be raised by 10" through the placement of 90 CY of fill and rock armorment for the prevention of scour is proposed in the amount of 140 CY at the downstream outlet of the spillway. A sump pit will be set up in order to dewater any incidental water that may be turbid from worksite activities. Approximately 80' downstream from the dam, a temporary access culvert consisting of two 18" wide by 20' long pipes will be placed, resulting in 20 CY of fill. Lake Uncas Dam is a Class A, Low Hazard Dam. Lake Uncas carries a Waters Index Number (WIN) of B-70-20-25-11-4-P322 and a water quality classification of B. The outlet stream is an unnamed tributary of Sprague Brook, WIN B-70-20-25-11-4, classified B(T).

Application ID:

3-5522-00273/00002

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Cortlandt, Westchester County


Project Description:

The Department has prepared a Draft Permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) and Title V of the Federal Clean Air Act Amendments and made a tentative determination to issue a new State Facility Permit for the operation of the Hudson Valley Hospital Center located in Cortland Manor, Westchester County, New York.

The Hudson Valley Hospital Center (HVHC) was an existing air registration facility that operated three (3) identical exempt boilers with capacity 6.28 million BTU/hr each. Two of these boilers fire No. 2 oil only, the third boiler primarily fires No.2 oil and natural gas as the secondary fuel.

This state facility permit will allow the operation of two identical Cleaver-Brooks Boilers with capacity 8.165 million BTU/hr each. Both boilers will fire natural gas. No. 2 oil will be used as back-up fuel. Emissions from both boilers will be exhausted via a common stack. The new boilers will serve a new building, namely, the South Building.

The facility-wide emissions of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) will be kept under 22.5 tons per year. This permit application is submitted to upgrade the current hospital's air registration to a State Facility Permit.

Applicable regulations include 6NYCRR parts 201-2, 201-5, 201-7, 202, and 40CFR 68, 40CFR 72. By acceptance of this permit, the permittee agrees that the permit is contingent upon strict compliance with the ECL, all applicable regulations, the General Conditions specified and any Special Conditions included as part of this permit.
