Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Saugerties, Ulster County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to renew the Title V Permit for Northeast Solite Corporation. The facility manufactures lightweight aggregate using rotary kilns. Air emission sources at the facility include three kilns, and crushers, screens, and conveyors to process raw and finished material.

Emissions of oxides of nitrogen (NOx), sulfur dioxide, and particulates from the facility are above major source thresholds, as defined in 6 NYCRR Part 201. Therefore, the facility is required to obtain a Title V permit.

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 Department 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.

Corona, NY 11368

Facility:

Delaware Aqueduct Shaft 5B Rondout-West Branch Tunnel Repair
3 Mi Section - Roseton Area to Chelsea Area
Newburgh, NY

Application ID:

3-9903-00090/00004

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Newburgh, Multiple Counties

Project Description:

The Department has made a tentative determination to approve this application to modify an Industrial SPDES permit (#NY028 0402) to add an additional surface discharge from a new outfall (Outfall 002) with a maximum daily flow of ten million gallons per day (10 MGD) of treated groundwater (process water) to the Hudson River, Class A, from dewatering operations associated with deep shaft and tunnel excavation conducted as part of the Rondout West Branch Tunnel repair project, a component of the NYCDEP Water for the Future Program. The proposed discharge from Outfall 002 includes treated groundwater encountered during excavation and muck bin and truck wash effluents. Existing Outfall 001, located on the 64-acre West Connection Site (WCS), discharges similar effluent (treated groundwater, muck bin & truck wash waters) to an unnamed tributary of Lattintown Creek, Class C. The permit modification also reflects relocation and expansion of the wastewater treatment plant at the WCS in order to handle additional flow anticipated from tunnel boring operations. The Department previously authorized construction of the dewatering force main with outfall to the Hudson River (Outfall 002) by issuance and subsequent modification of Protection of Waters Permit & Water Quality Certification [DEC Nos. 3-9903-00090/00006 & 00007 initially issued on 8/23/12 and last modified on 4/3/15.] The WCS is located on the west side of NYS Route 9W and north of Old Marlboro Turnpike. A draft permit is available for inspection and comment at the regional office.

Availability of Application Documents:

Filed application documents, and Department draft permits where applicable, are available for inspection during normal business hours at the address of the contact person. To ensure timely service at the time of inspection, it is recommended that an appointment be made with the contact person.
