Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification

Project is Located:

Jefferson County

Project Description:

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (Department) has received a request from The Development Authority of the North Country (Authority) for a Solid Waste Management Permit to continue to operate and to expand the capacity of the existing Solid Waste Management Facility (SWMF) on NYS Route 177, Town of Rodman, NY. The expansion will cover approximately 110 acres south and west of, and contiguous to, the existing landfill; this includes approximately 76.70 acres of lined landfill cells at full build-out and approximately 34.30 acres of landfill berms, access roads, stormwater detention basins, and ancillary facilities. The Proposed Southern Expansion (PSE) would provide approximately 12,600,000 cubic yards of air space to accommodate solid waste disposal for the SWMF service area (Jefferson, Lewis, and St Lawrence Counties). It is anticipated that at full build-out, the PSE would consist of nine landfill cells.

This Department has received a request for a permit renewal to operate air pollution sources and has drafted pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the Environmental Conservation Law, a Title V Facility Permit, for the DANC Solid Waste Management Facility (SWMF) located in the Town of Rodman, Jefferson 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.

This Title V renewal application for the DANC SWMF includes emissions from the Innovative/DANC LLC landfill gas to energy (LFGTE) project (DEC Permit ID: 6-2252-00018/00001) for regulatory applicability review as a single facility. The DANC SWMF and Innovative/DANC LLC plant propose to maintain separate Title V permits. A single facility is allowed to maintain multiple permits under 6 NYCRR Part 201-6.

The 3,000 cfm open candlestick flare at the DANC SWMF (Permit # 6-2252-00007/00015, emission source: F0999) will be utilized as a backup landfill gas combustion device when the landfill gas engines at Innovative/DANC LLC are not able to handle the entire amount of collected landfill gas. DANC SWMF also operates up to 8 candlestick flares for additional control of landfill gas odors as needed. In addition, the DANC SWMF operates exempt and trivial activities including emergency generators, fuel storage tanks, building heaters, waste oil storage, and mobile equipment. This renewal also includes the expansion of the landfill. The new expansion will incorporate a significant reduction of waste placement annually. This will allow the facilities to stay below the Plantwide Applicability Limit for Carbon Monoxide, which is 262 tons per year.

Innovative/DANC LLC consists of three (3) existing (and permitted) and two (2) proposed (for a total of five (5) Caterpillar G3520C) landfill gas engine generator sets. Potential to emit (PTE) emissions from this project include emissions from a 1,100 scfm candlestick flare to combust excess landfill gas that the engines cannot utilize.

The DANC SWMF and Innovative/DANC LLC plant shall be considered a single facility for all air pollution control regulations applicability determinations. The PTE of any air pollutant from this single facility shall be based on the maximum landfill gas flow rate of 4,209 scfm (expressed as 50% methane). Emissions of carbon monoxide from the DANC SWMF and Innovative/DANC LLC plant will be capped at 262 tons per year.

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.

In conjunction with the SWMF proposed expansion, the Authority proposes to restore wetland habitat and enhance stream habitat to compensate for wetland and stream impacts due to the SWMF expansion. This off-site mitigation project is proposed for the Lakeview Wildlife Management Area within the same watershed as the SWMF. This will result in disturbance to the 100' regulated adjacent area around NYS Regulated Freshwater Wetland E-1.

A 401 Water Quality Certification is required for disturbance to streams due to the SWMF proposed expansion as well as the off-site mitigation.

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation

Project is Located:

Oneida County

Project Description:

The applicant proposes to add 33.0 acres of land to an existing mining permit located within a 283.0 acre parcel (Tax Parcel No. 181.000-1-10) east of Preston Hill Road. The mine operates as a traditional surface mine extracting the Chenango gravelly fine sandy loam formed on gravelly loamy glaciofluvial deposits derived mainly from sandstone, shale and siltstone. No mining is proposed to take place below the local water table. Excavation will be done by mechanical equipment, standard for sand mining operations and for removal of material from a bank face. Mining is proposed to remove approximately 1.5 million tons of sand and gravel over the estimated 30-40 year operational life of the mine. Material will be mined and loaded directly into trucks or crushed and screened as needed with portable processing equipment standard for surface mining operations. Final reclamation will restore the site to open space. Mine areas will be graded and stockpiled topsoil will be spread around the edges, and seeded with a perennial grasses and legume seed mixture. The reviewed life-of-mine increased area is 33.0 (LOM) acres giving a total LOM of 67.5 acres.
