Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

East Fishkill, Dutchess County

Project Description:

The Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a renewal to State Pollutant Discharge Elimination Systems (SPDES) permit NY0005096. This permit also includes a permittee initiated modification for the removal of stormwater outfalls.

The IBM East Fishkill Facility develops and manufactures semiconductors for the computer and electronic industries. The facility discharges treated process and sanitary wastewater, and stormwater to a tributary of Gildesleeve Brook, a class C water, and Gildersleeve Brook, a class C(T) water.

Treatment at the facility consists of a combination of physical and biological processes for the process, sanitary and treated groundwater wastewater. Treatment for stormwater runoff and treated remediation groundwater consists of a series of carbon treatment processes. No treatment is provided for stormwater outfalls for Gildersleeve Brook and a tributary of Gildersleeve Brook.

Following is a summary of the most significant proposed changes in the draft permit as compared to the currently effective permit: Deletion of stormwater Outfalls 014, 049, and 050 from the West Complex that was sold to PREI Hopewell Junction Associates (September 29, 2006); Deletion of stormwater Outfalls 010, 016, 018, and 019 from the permit because these stormwater outfalls have been physically removed or are no longer required for major oil storage facility (MOSF) monitoring (2012 permittee request). For Outfall 001, limits were established for new parameters, concentration limits were reduced for a number of parameters. Parallel mass limits are proposed for all parameters where feasible, and, limits/monitoring requirements were deleted for several parameters which were no longer a concern. For Outfall 004, some limits were also made more stringent or newly added. Please note that when the Department updates a permit this typically includes updated forms incorporating the latest general conditions.

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Orangetown, Rockland County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a renewal Title V Air Facility Permit for the operation of Avery Dennison RIS, LLC. This is the second renewal of the site's existing Title V permit. This renewal reflects the retirement of the D-Coating line as well as updating the permit to comply with the revised 6NYCRR Part 228.

Facility (formerly Paxar Corporation) is a urethane-based fabric coating plant involving the formulation and application of surface coatings. It consists of two coating lines:

• the C-line, which uses solvent based coatings and it is represented by emission Unit 00001, and
• the E-line, which uses water based coatings and it is represented by Emission Unit 00002.

Additional equipment include reactors, mixing units, storage vessels, and a thermal oxidizer which captured over 90% of the VOCs and it operates at average temperature of 1609o Fahrenheit. The oxidizer uses natural gas for startup fuel and is required to maintain a temperature above 1509o Fahrenheit at all times.

The facility is a major source for VOCs and hazardous air pollutants (HAPS) and is required to meet MACT standards for Fabric Printing, Coating & Dyeing sources as regulated by 40 C.F.R. Part 63 subpart OOOO.

Additional applicable regulations include 6NYCRR Part 200, 201, 202, 211, 212, 215, 227, 40 CFR parts 68, and 82-F.

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.

Ramapo, Rockland County

Project Description:

The applicant has applied for an initial permit for the continued withdrawal of 2.26 Million Gallons Per Day (Million GPD) of water from an on-site irrigation pond and two wells for irrigation of the Spook Rock Golf Course Facility. The golf course facility has been in operation since the 1970s. No changes in current operations from recent years are proposed. The Department has determined that the Facility is eligible for an Initial Permit under Section 15-1501.9 of the Environmental Conservation Law. Initial Permits are limited to existing facilities for existing water withdrawals over 100,000 GPD which were properly reported to the Department prior to February 15, 2012. Section 15-501.9 requires the Department to issue Initial Water Withdrawal Permits for the reported volume.

The Department has determined that the issuance of "initial permits" under ECL section 15-501.9 as implemented by 6 NYCRR 601.7 is a ministerial action and therefore subject to the Type II exemption set out in 6 NYCRR 617.5(c)(19).
