ENB Region 2 Completed Applications 11/14/2012

Queens County

Applicant:

Consolidated Edison Company of New York Inc
4 Irving Pl
New York, NY 10003 -3502

Facility:

Con Ed - Astoria Facility
20th Ave & 21st St
Astoria, NY 11105

Application ID:

2-6301-00006/00002

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 27 Title 9 Resource Conservation and Recovery Act

Project is Located:

Queens, Queens County

Project Description:

Consolidated Edison's Astoria Hazardous Waste Storage Facility (the Astoria Facility) occupies approximately 227 acres inside an industrial complex that is bounded by 20th Avenue and the East River in Queens, NY. The Astoria Facility was first issued a New York State 6 NYCRR Part 373 Permit to operate a Hazardous Waste Management Facility (HWMF) on May 1, 1994, US EPA ID NO. NYD98059363. The current permit allows for a waste storage capacity of 66,284 gallons. Consolidated Edison has applied for a modification of their existing permit issued July 7, 2008 and it is due to expire July 7, 2018.

The applicant proposes on site construction and modification to a previously authorized containment area beneath the canopy in the polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB ) Canopy Containment Area. This new PCB Canopy Containment Area, referred to as Area 18, will have a permitted storage capacity of 7,920 gallons and consist of a large containment dike overlain with a steel grate. The construction and containment area is significantly smaller than the container storage area pad design of 15,080 gallons referenced in the existing permit. The new construction will result in the existing permitted storage capacity increasing from 66,264 gallons to 74,184 gallons. The containment area design will consist of a containment dike with secondary containment capacity of 11,253 gallons.

Additional aspects of this modification include the combining of permitted container storage Areas 10 and 17 into a single unit allowing for the contiguous storage of waste streams approximate to each other and with the same waste. This combined storage area will be referred to as the "Non-Liquid Waste Drum Storage Area (Area 10)" and its permitted storage capacity is the existing combined permitted storage of the individual Areas 10 and 17.

Tentative Determination:

The Department has made a tentative determination to modify the 6 NYCRR Part 373 Permit for the aforementioned changes associated with the construction of Area 18, and the combination of permitted storage units Area 17 and Area 10 into one unit. The draft permit and modification has been prepared pursuant to the applicable regulations in 6 NYCRR Part 373-2 (Final Status Standards for Owners and Operators of Hazardous Waste Treatment, Storage and Disposal Facilities) as other applicable hazardous waste laws and regulations.

Document Availability:

DEC has prepared a Fact Sheet for the public's use which provides further details on this proposed permit modification, draft permit and opportunities for public involvement in the process.
