ENB Region 4 Completed Applications 10/17/2012

Albany County

Applicant:

City of Albany
City Hall
24 Eagle St
Albany, NY 12207

Facility:

Albany Landfill
525 Rapp Rd
Albany, NY 12205

Application ID:

4-0101-00171/00011

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management

Project is Located:

Albany, Albany County

Project Description:

The City of Albany proposes to modify three of the Special Conditions in the Solid Waste Management permit that was issued to the City in 2009 to expand operations at the Rapp Road landfill. The City provided the DEC with a draft copy of an updated Long Solid Waste Management Plan for the Capital District Planning Unit, as required by the permit, but review and finalization of the Plan is taking longer than anticipated and does not leave sufficient time for the City to comply with the deadlines in the permit. Therefore, the City proposes the following changes:

1. Modify Special Condition 26 (b) of the permit to extend indefinitely the deadline date for insuring that a new Long-term Local Solid Waste Management Plan (LSWMP) is in effect for the Planning Unit, from the original January 1, 2011 deadline. The DEC previously issued an extension to this deadline, but additional time is still needed. The DEC would agree to an extension of this deadline until the fall of 2013.

2. Modify Special Condition 27 of the permit to extend the original permit deadline of December 31, 2012 by which the City has to submit to DEC a Request for Proposal for engineering designs and permit application materials for the selected long-term solid waste management option, to a new deadline of June 30, 2016. Meeting of the original deadline is contingent upon finalization of the LSWMP, which has not yet occurred. The DEC would agree to extending the deadline to 3 years after DEC gives the City its final approval of the LSWMP.

3. Modify Special Condition 34 of the permit which requires the City of Albany to place an amount of $10 per ton of solid waste accepted at the landfill into a dedicated fund to be used to fund the restoration of the Pine Bush habitat on lands that are on, and that surround the landfill facility. The city is requesting that this permit condition be modified to allow the City to raise the funds needed for habitat restoration through the use of bonds. The DEC proposes approval of the City's use of bonds as it offers flexibility to the City to raise the necessary funds to complete the habitat restoration work as needed.

Delaware County

Applicant:

Delaware County IDA
One Courthouse Sq Ste 4
Delhi, NY 13753

Facility:

Amphenol Corporation
171 Delaware Ave @ Kmart Plaza
Sidney, NY 13838

Application ID:

4-1250-00182/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

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

Project is Located:

Sidney, Delaware County

Project Description:

The applicant proposes to construct a new manufacturing facility at 171 Delaware Avenue in the Village of Sidney, and relocate a portion of the existing operations to the new facility. The project will entail the relocation of 63,068 square feet of office and 210,480 square feet of manufacturing facility, along with parking on a 22.63 acre site. The project at the new facility site will impact 1,487 square feet of NYSDEC Wetland SD-2 adjacent area to provide for an outfall structure for a stormwater detention basin. 0.408 acres of Federal wetlands and 0.079 acre of stream will be impacted, however other stream and wetland areas were avoided and will be retained. Compensatory wetland and stream mitigation will be implemented off-site for unavoidable adverse impacts. These include preservation, through Conservation Easements, of a) 19 acres of Delaware County IDA (IDA Site) land consisting of wetland and streams, b) preservation and enhancement of wetlands (UF-13) and stream at Pine Lane (Pine Lane Mitigation Site) (total of 7.6 acres protected), and c) a stream relocation/stabilization project (Sidney Center Site) of 1,250 linear feet of a tributary to Willow Brook in the hamlet of Sidney Center to create a natural stream channel, reduce the potential of impacts from repeated flooding in Sidney Center, reduce contamination of Willow Brook, allow for aquatic organism passage, and improve riparian habitat.
