Facility:

Buckeye Brewerton Terminal

Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Hastings, Oswego County

Project Description:

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has made a tentative decision to issue to Buckeye Terminals LLC a State Facility Permit for its facility in Brewerton, New York. The permit authorizes the operation of the facility and also the conversion of one storage tank from distillate fuel storage to gasoline storage.

Buckeye's Brewerton NY terminal consists of gasoline storage tanks, diesel storage tanks, ethanol storage tanks, a loading rack, and a carbon adsorber control device. The terminal also maintains a vapor combustion unit as a back-up control device. Regulations impose requirements on: the cargo tanks (they must be leak tight); the gasoline storage tanks (they must have internal floating roofs); the loading rack (it, and the associated vapor lines, must not leak, and VOC emissions must be either destroyed or recovered); and the piping used to convey gasoline and gasoline vapors (subject to leak detection and repair). The primary control device for the loading rack is a dual-bed carbon adsorption system, which includes a gasoline absorber to treat the desorbed bed. A vapor combustion unit serves as a back-up.

The facility is subject to federal (Standards of Performance for New Stationary Sources and National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants) and state standards applicable to loading racks and storage tanks. Facility-wide emissions of VOC (and, therefore, hazardous air pollutants) are capped below the major source thresholds.

The facility is located on the north side of Rt 37, between Zuk Pierce Rd and Rt 11 in the Town of Hastings.

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Hastings, Oswego County

Project Description:

The Town of Hastings is proposing to modify and renew the current State Pollutant Discharge Elimination (SPDES) permit for the Fort Brewerton waste water treatment plant. The proposed modification is to increase the current facility design flow of treated sanitary wastewater to 0.25 million gallons per day, discharging to the Oneida River, a Class B waterbody. The proposed upgrade and expansion will include the installation of a mechanical bar rack, 2 additional sequencing batch reactors, a double sized aerobic digesters, a belt press dewatering facility, and a design flow of 0.25 MGD. The Fort Brewerton waste water treatment plant will treat sewage from the Towns of Hastings, Schroeppel, and West Monroe's Big Bay and the proposed Toad Harbor sewer districts. The Fort Brewerton waste water treatment plant is located along Zuk Pierce Road in the Town of Hastings.

The Department has made a tentative determination to issue a SPDES permit under Article 17 of the Environmental Conservation Law. This tentative determination indicates that the discharge regulated under this statue is considered to satisfy regulatory standards for permit issuance, based on information available to the Department at this time. As a tentative determination, the Department seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision on permit issuance. As such, this tentative determination does not signify Department approval or endorsement of the activity for which a permit is sought or for the overall proposed project. Refer to this application by application number listed above and SPDES Number NY 0245062.
