Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Lincoln, Madison County

Project Description:

The Department has drafted a permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law and Title V of the Clean Air Act Amendments, and made a tentative decision to approve the Title V renewal permit for Madison County's Solid Waste Landfill, located on Buyea Road, Canastota, NY.

This is the first five year Title V permit renewal for this facility. No significant changes have occurred at the landfill and the renewal permit is essentially the same as the previous renewal permit regarding applicably requirements and permit conditions.

The facility is a municipal landfill, SIC code 4953. The landfill receives municipal and private waste for disposal. The County has installed a landfill gas collection and control system in part of the landfill. The collected landfill gas is used by an independently permitted facility, owned and operated by WM Canastota Renewable Energy Company, to produce electricity. The County has one (1) large landfill gas flare that is used to burn the collected landfill gas when the independently owned and permitted facility is not operating. The facility also has two (2) leachate storage lagoons, weigh station and miscellaneous equipment to move, compact and cover the waste materials.

The Madison County Landfill is subject to the NYS Emission Guidelines for Municipal Solid Waste Landfill Emissions and 40 CFR 60, subpart WWW, Standards of Performance for Municipal Solid Waste Landfills. A Title V operating permit is required pursuant to 6 NYCRR 201-6. The County has demonstrated, through site specific (Tier 2) testing, that emissions of non-methane organic compounds (NMOC) are below 50 megagrams (Mg) per year. Landfills with NMOC emissions less than 50 megagrams per year are not subject to the collection and control requirements specified in 40 CFR 60.752(b)(2) until such time as emissions of NMOC are 50 Mg or greater. The County is required to submit a NMOC emission report annually, semi-annual compliance monitoring reports, and an annual compliance certification.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.7(d)(9) and 201-6.4(c), the Administrator of the US Environmental Protection Agency 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.
