Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Oneida County

Project Description:

DEC has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a permit modification to operate air pollution sources pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the Environmental Conservation Law and Title V Facility of the Federal Clean Air Act Amendments for the Ava Landfill located in the Town of Ava, Oneida County, New York. The facility is a landfill that accepts municipal solid waste. The Standard Industrial Classification representative of this facility is 4953, Refuse Systems.

The facility is a permitted landfill that opened and began receiving and placing waste in October 2006. This application is to modify the current Title V permit. The facility voluntarily operates landfill gas collection and control devices to combust landfill gas and destroy methane to reduce odors and greenhouse gas emissions. The facility is not required to install or operate the devices in order to comply with federal New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) at this time. Permitted emission units include 1-LFGAS, 2-VHCPM and 3-LCHST. Existing permitted emission sources include up to 10 portable passive candlestick flares. The application seeks to add an additional emission source (F0026) to emission unit 1-LFGAS for an active candlestick flare, and remove 14 passive flares. A recent valid Tier 2 test verified that non-methane organic compound (NMOC) emissions are less than 50 megagrams/year. This information means that several conditions contained in the original Title V permit are no longer applicable and will not become applicable until facility emission of NMOC exceed 50 megagrams/year.

In addition the facility operates exempt and trivial activities including emergency generators, fuel storage tanks, building heaters, and mobile equipment.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.7(b)(9) and 201-6.3(c), the Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) 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.

Persons wishing to inspect the subject Title V files, including the application with all relevant supporting materials, the draft permit, and all other materials available to the DEC (the "permitting authority") that are relevant to this permitting decision should contact the DEC representative listed below. The Draft Permit and Permit Review Report may be viewed and printed from the department web site at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/32249.html.

DEC will evaluate the application and the comments received on it to determine whether to hold a public hearing. Comments and requests for a public hearing should be in writing and addressed to the DEC representative listed below. A copy of the department's permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the department web site at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/permits/6234.html.
