Monroe County

Applicant:

Chili Country Club Inc
760 Chili Scottsville Rd
Scottsville, NY 14546 -9640

Facility:

Chili Country Club

Scottsville, NY 14546

Application ID:

8-2622-00189/00002

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 15 Title 15 Water Withdrawal Non-public

Project is Located:

Chili, Monroe County

Project Description:

The applicant has applied for an initial permit for the continued withdrawal of 850 gallons per minute of water from a Black Creek tributary for irrigation of the Chili Country Club Facility. The facility has been in operation since 1959. 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 gallons per day 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).

Steuben County

Applicant:

Corning Incorporated
HP-ME-02-06
Corning, NY 14831

Facility:

Corning Diesel Manufacturing Facility
890 Addison Rd (St Rte 417)
Painted Post, NY 14870

Application ID:

8-4642-00108/00002

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Erwin, Steuben County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and made a tentative determination to issue a renewal of the Title V Facility Permit to authorize operations at the Corning Inc. - Diesel Manufacturing Facility, which manufactures ceramic filters and substrates for diesel engine emission control devices.

The Diesel Manufacturing Facility is subject to Part 201-6 Title V Facility Permits due to potential emissions of PM, CO, and NOX in excess of 100 tons per year each, and VOC in excess of 50 tons per year. The Facility is also a Major Stationary Source as defined in 40CFR 52.21 PSD due to potential CO emissions in excess of 250 tons per year.

Operations are grouped into Emission Units (EU), which include:

  • EU U‑00001, rail car and truck unloading and transfer operations, batch silo storage and screening operations, wet and dry mixing operations, plugging, skinning, contouring, and finishing operations;
  • EU U‑00002, volatile organic liquid storage tanks;
  • EU U‑00003, extruded ceramic drying operations;
  • EU U‑00004, 4 periodic kilns and 2 tunnel kilns firing extruded ceramic ware;
  • EU U‑00005, natural gas and diesel fired heaters, boilers, and emergency generators;
  • EU U‑00006, 2 newer tunnel kilns and their associated wet mixing, cutting, and drying operations; and
  • EU U‑00007, cutting, grinding, contouring, skinning, and finishing operations.

The draft permit also authorizes small combustion sources associated with the facility, classified in 6NYCRR Subpart 201-3 as exempt and trivial sources.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Part 231-12, an air quality impact assessment was performed to evaluate the impacts of Corning's NO2, CO, and HF emissions for the permit modification issued August 20, 2015. The ambient air quality impact analysis followed the procedures at 40 CFR Part 51, Appendix W, using EPA's approved model AERMOD. To determine 1-hour NO2 impacts the analysis included the use of the non-guideline beta option, ARM2. The Department approved the analysis and determined that Corning has demonstrated compliance with NAAQS. Post construction ambient air monitoring will provide additional assurance that the 1-hour NO2 NAAQS is not exceeded.

The draft permit also limits HF and PM emissions to below the thresholds in 6 NYCRR Part 231-8 PSD for Modifications to Major Facilities in Attainment Areas. The limits are based on stack testing, a minimum of 95 percent control of HF emissions when the fluorine content of the raw material exceeds 0.00002 pound per pound of raw material for all four tunnel kilns, and PM control to a maximum emission rate of 0.001 grains per dry standard cubic foot for EU U-00006 Process P08 PM emissions from ceramic mixing, cutting, and drying operations.

The draft permit also limits VOC emissions to below the threshold in 6 NYCRR Part 231-6, based on stack testing, a minimum of 99 percent control of VOC emissions and a maximum of 1.3 pounds of VOC emissions per ton of ceramic ware from EU U-00006 Tunnel Kiln 3, and a minimum of 99.9 percent control of VOC emissions and a maximum of 1.3 pounds of VOC emissions per ton of ceramic ware of from the newer EU U-00006 Tunnel Kiln 4.

Facility-wide emission limits remaining unchanged will continue to restrict:

  • Facility CO emissions to less than 348 tons per year,
  • Facility PM emissions to less than 249 tons per year, including the newer finishing process EU U-00007, which is restricted to less than 10 tons per year of PM 2.5, less than 15 tons per year of PM 10, and less than 25 tons per year of emissions of total PM.
  • Facility VOC emissions to less than 161 tons per year.
  • Facility NOx emissions to 247.7 tons per year, also subject to LAER limits in Part 231-6.5

The draft permit also reflects 6NYCRR Part 231-6.6 Emission offset requirements, applying Emission Reduction Credits of 181.47 tons of NOx per year to comply with the 1.15 to 1 offset ratio for a 157.8 ton per year net increase in NOx emissions previously approved by the Department. With 300 tons per year of NOx ERC obtained by Corning, the unused 118.53 tons per year NOx ERC are to be retired from the New York Registry.

The draft permit also reflects the updated 6NYCRR Part 212 requirements for the facility including limiting the High Toxicity Air Contaminant (HTAC) emissions.

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.
