Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 15 Title 15 Water Withdrawal Non-public

Project is Located:

Red Hook, Dutchess County


Project Description:

The applicant has applied for an initial permit for the continued withdrawal of 820 gallons per minute of water from an on-site irrigation pond and the Saw Kill River for golf course irrigation and potable water supply. The facility has been in operation since 1996. 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).

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Highlands, Orange County


Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue an Air Title V permit renewal for the US Army Garrison located in West Point, Orange County.

The facility is an educational institution and an active Army installation. Potential emissions of sulfur dioxide, oxides of nitrogen, carbon monoxide, and volatile organic compounds from the facility are above major source thresholds, as defined in 6NYCRR Part 201. Therefore, the facility is required to obtain a Title V permit.

The facility is an area source of hazardous air pollutants, which includes perchloroethylene. The potential to emit perchloroethylene is less than 10 tons per year.

Air emission sources at the facility include three boilers and an emergency generator at the Central Power Plant, two boilers and four perchloroethylene dry cleaning machines at the Laundry Plant, a paint spray booth at the Transportation Motor Pool, four gasoline dispensing sites, a landfill gas collection system, and various boilers and emergency generators throughout the facility.

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.

Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Woodbury, Orange County


Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a renewal to the Air State Facility permit for Highland Stone, located in Highland Mills, Orange County.

Highland Stone is a quarry and processing facility that mines, crushes and screens stone for sale to the construction industry. There are three crushing plants (one exempt), two screen plants, and four operational generators (two exempt) on-site.

Renewal 1 adds a 400 tph Powerscreen Premiertrak portable crushing plant to the permit. This plant uses a water spray bar at the head pulley and conveyor shrouds to suppress dust emissions. The facility has also added a second crushing plant that consists of a Trio crusher, Nordberg crusher and a vibrating screen. This portable plant has a maximum output of 150 tph, and is therefore exempt from permitting as per 6 NYCRR Part 201-3.2(c)(29)(ii) and 40 CFR Part 60, Subpart 60.672(c)(2). The Powerscreen plant is powered by a Scania Tier 4 engine, while the Trio and Nordberg plant is powered by a Volvo engine. Both of these engines are a part of their respective portable plants and are therefore exempt from permitting as per 6 NYCRR Part 201-3.3(c)(11). A Detroit Diesel generator has been added to replace the Cummins-Onan generator that is non-operational and labeled "broken beyond repair" as of 2/17/16. The Stadco generator has been removed from the site.

The main processing plant is made up of primary, secondary, tertiary, and quaternary crushers and is powered by the 930 kW Detroit Spectrum diesel generator. Auxiliary power to this plant is provided by the 350 kW Caterpillar diesel generator. Water spray systems are located on each crusher to aid in dust suppression. Conveyor shrouds are also used for particulate control. The two screen plants are the Armor Stone and Reclaim plants.

The crushers and screening equipment are subject to conditions under 40 CFR Part 60, Subpart OOO, while the generators are subject to conditions under 40 CFR Part 60, Subpart IIII and 6 NYCRR Parts 201, 225 and 227.

By acceptance of this permit, the permittee agrees that the permit is contingent upon strict compliance with the ECL, all applicable regulations, the General Conditions specified and any Special Conditions included as part of this permit.

Persons wishing to inspect the subject 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 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 legislative 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 of on the Department website at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/permits/6234.html.
