ENB Region 9 Completed Applications 07/21/2010

Chautauqua County

Applicant:

RHI Monofrax Ltd
1870 New York Ave
Falconer, NY 14733 -1797

Facility:

RHI Monofrax Ltd
1870 New York Ave
Falconer, NY 14733 -1797

Application ID:

9-0638-00078/00056

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Ellicott, Chautauqua County

Project Description:

The Department has made a tentative determination to approve a modification to the existing Air State Facility Permit and prepared a draft permit for the facility which manufactures fused cast refractory to customer specifications. This permit modification is for the expansion of a baghouse, and the addition of a new baghouse for handling crusher process emissions and the installation of a new baghouse to replace an existing one. The modification also includes changes to the PM-10 emissions factors that are part of the PM-10 emission cap but does not change the emission cap. The permit continues to contain the federally enforceable permit conditions that cap annual PM-10 and nitrous oxide (NOx) emissions in order to avoid Title V permitting requirements of 6NYCRR 201-6.1(a). This permit limits both NOx and PM-10 emissions to 80 tons for each rolling 12 month period. Limiting NOx to 80 tons per year also enables the facility to avoid the applicability of NOx RACT (Reasonably Available Control Technology) requirements contained in 6 NYCRR 227-2. An emission cap to limit hexavalent chromium (Cr+6) emissions from the manufacturing of chrome based refractory has been added. The limit will keep the modeled emission impacts of Cr+6 in the ambient air below the Annual Guidance Concentrations (AGC) in the department's policy DAR-1, Guidelines for the Control of Toxic Ambient Air Contaminants. Cr+6 emissions will be limited by restricting the tons of chromium oxide that can be used to make the refractory. The total chromium oxide usage shall not exceed 712.1 tons during each 12 month rolling period. This input limit will keep the Cr+6 emissions below the annual emission rate of 3.42 pounds, which is based on a stack test, and will keep the modeled impact below the AGC. Based on Department Policy DAR-1, Guidelines for the Control of Toxic Ambient Air Contaminants, modeling the annual emission of hexavalent chromium (Cr+6) from refractory made with Cr2O3 materials is protective of the ambient air and below the Cr+6 Annual Guidance Concentration (AGC) in DAR-1. This facility is being capped under the provisions of Part 201-7.2, "Emissions capping using synthetic minor permits" to avoid further Cr+6 emission impact analysis evaluations. The application, draft permit, relevant supporting materials and regulations are available for review at the Department's Region 9 Office, Buffalo, during normal working hours.

Applicant:

Village of Cassadaga

Facility:

Village of Cassadaga Water District
Putnam Rd, Maple Ave, High St, Rte 60, Dale Dr, N. Shore Prk
Cassadaga, NY

Application ID:

9-0699-00065/00002

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification

Project is Located:

Stockton, Chautauqua County

Project Description:

The Village of Cassadaga proposes to develop a water well to provide a new source of water for the Village of Cassadaga Water District and improve water treatment, storage and distribution. The proposed water well is to be drilled approximately 800 ft. south of the Cassadaga Valley Elementary School, and will be located in the Regulated 100-ft. wide Adjacent Area of State Freshwater Wetland ID CS-7. In addition, the Village proposes to install approximately 20,000 linear feet of new water transmission pipelines around much of Lower Cassadaga Lake, mostly within existing road rights-of-way, some located within Regulated 100-ft. wide Adjacent Areas of State Freshwater Wetland IDs CS-6 and CS-7. As mitigation for approximately 6,276 sq. ft. of temporary impacts and 6,710 sq. ft. permanent impacts to the wetland adjacent areas, the Village is proposing enhancing 13,000 sq. ft. of the Wetland ID CS-7 Adjacent Area with a mixture of native plantings.
