Facility:

Gutchess Lumber Company Inc.
880 McLean Rd

Application ID:

7-1122-00005/00002

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Cortlandville, Cortland County

Project Description:

Gutchess Lumber Co. operates a hardwood sawmill in the City of Cortland, Cortland County, NY (formerly owned and operated by Cortland Wood Products ). The active permit includes emission points for two wood fired boilers, a sawmill baghouse and a pneumatic wood chip transfer system. Correspondence with Gutchess shows that the baghouse now exhausts indoors, and therefore no longer needs a permit. Also, the wood chip transport system, which discharges into a truck, in practice generates very few emissions and, very likely, only trace emissions of fine particulate matter. As such, the emission factor for this system is overly conservative. This device does not need to be permitted, as the DEC rules have an exemption for sawmills (6 NYCRR 201-3(c)(64)).1

The two wood fired boilers are subject to a recently-promulgated federal standard, National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Industrial, Commercial and Institutional Boilers, area sources, found at 40 CFR Part 63, Subpart JJJJJJ. The boilers are not subject to any numerical emission limit. The boilers are subject to a one-time energy audit (due March 21, 2014) and undergo a biennial tune up (due March 21, 2012). The EPA is planning on extending these deadlines for 90 days, until a rule revision can be promulgated.

The DEC is proposing to remove the wood chip discharge system and the sawmill baghouse as emission sources from the permit and to add permit conditions to implement 40 CFR Part 63, Subpart JJJJJJ for the boilers. The DEC is also changing the value of certain emission factors, used to compute annual emissions, to equate to EPA-published factors. The permit application and draft permit are available for review in the Cortland Office.

1 Although the property and buildings of Gutchess are close to residences, the pollutant emitting activities associated with the saw mill are in excess 500 feet away.

Salina, NY 13208

Application ID:

7-3148-00021/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 27 Title 9 Resource Conservation and Recovery Act

Project is Located:

Salina, Onondaga County

Project Description:

The Department has made a tentative determination to renew this 6 NYCRR Part 373 Permit. Solvents and Petroleum Services, Inc. (SPS) is located near Syracuse in the Town of Salina, New York, at 1405, Brewerton Road. The facility is located near the intersection of the New York Thruway and Interstate 81. SPS is a distributor of solvents and supplies to industries in Central New York. The facility has been in operation from November 1979 as a solvent distributor and as a storage facility for spent solvents classified as hazardous waste by New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. The spent solvents accepted by SPS are generated from the solvents supplied by SPS. This is a commercial hazardous waste storage facility which has a container storage capacity of 14,300 gallons of spent solvents. The wastes are stored inside a roofed building provided with a welded steel secondary containment. SPS also consolidate wastes received from conditionally exempt small quantity generators and partially filled drums of the same waste from the same generators for transportation efficiency. Occasionally, SPS receives drummed wastes for direct shipments through the facility. These drums contain the same waste numbers the facility currently receives and the drums are stored in the drum washing area provided with a secondary containment. The secondary containment for the direct shipment waste consists of a portable tray that can hold up to four 55-gallon containers. The direct shipments are on active shipping papers exempted from the DEC regulations. These are stored less than 10 days at the facility.

No on-site processing or disposal of hazardous wastes occurs at this facility.

The current permit was renewed on March 14, 2006 by the Department with minor modifications on December 4, 2006, January 29, 2007 and July 6, 2010. The permit's term ended on March 13, 2011. However, SPS submitted the renewal application as required in 6 NYCRR 373-1.8. Under the provisions of State Administrative Procedures Act Section 401(2), when an "applicant has made a timely and sufficient application for the renewal of their permit, the existing permit does not expire until the application has been finally determined by the agency." SPS has submitted a timely and sufficient renewal application. Therefore, SPS's Permit is extended until the Department makes a final decision on the renewal application submitted by SPS. As such, SPS has been continually regulated by the Department under its SAPA-extended permit.

The draft permit, the application and fact sheet are available for public review during normal business hours at: New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, Division of Environmental Permits, 615 Erie Boulevard West, Syracuse, NY 13204-2400.
