Albany County

Applicant:

Linde LLC
575 Mountain Ave
New Providence, NJ 07974

Facility:

Linde LLC
76 W Yard Rd
Feura Bush, NY 12067 -9702

Application ID:

4-0122-00005/00002

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Bethlehem, Albany County

Project Description:

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is proposing a Department Initiated Modification (DIM) to the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Permit issued to Linde LLC (SPDES No. NY 008 4271), pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 750-1.18, and 750-1.19, the Priority Ranking System known as New York State's Environmental Benefit Permit Strategy (EBPS).

The facility has a surface water discharge (Outfall 001) of industrial wastewater to an unmapped tributary of the Coeymans Creek, a class C water, with an expected flowrate of up to 36,000 gallons per day. Sanitary wastewater from the facility is discharged to a subsurface absorption treatment and disposal system (Outfall 002). The facility has three stormwater outfalls (Outfalls 003-005) that also discharge to unmapped tributaries of the Coeymans Creek.

The following changes to the permit are proposed:

New effluent limitations for total dissolved solids, total copper, total selenium, sulfite, and dissolved oxygen, in addition to whole effluent toxicity testing, have been added to Outfall 001. The total residual chlorine and total zinc discharged through Outfall 001 are now subject to a more stringent water quality based effluent limitation.

Two additional stormwater outfalls (Outfalls 004 and 005) have been added and monitoring requirements for all stormwater outfalls have been added to be consistent with the monitoring required by the SPDES Multi Sector General Permit for Stormwater Discharges from Industrial Activity for this type of industry.

The permit has also been updated to include the most up to date regulatory language, Industrial Best Management Practices, and a Schedule of Compliance, which provides interim effluent limitations for total dissolved solids, total copper, and total zinc as well as a schedule to achieve compliance with the new and more stringent effluent limitations.

A draft permit and fact sheet are available for inspection and comment at the Region 4 office.

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

East Greenbush, Rensselaer County

Project Description:

The Department has received an application to renew the State Facility permit for the SUNY Albany - East Campus. The facility has removed older boilers, added new boilers and updated its potential to emit values (emission rates). The applicant has accepted a cap on emissions oxides of nitrogen (NOx) of less than 100 tons per year, which will restrict the potential to emit of the facility to a level which is less than the applicability threshold for Title V. In addition to limiting NOx, the cap will also limit the emissions of carbon monoxide (CO), sulfur dioxide (SO2), particulate matter less than 10 microns (PM10), particulate matter (PM), volatile organic compounds (VOC), and total hazardous air pollutants (HAP). By accepting this state and federally enforceable limit, SUNY will not be subject to the requirements for Title V permitting. The permittee will be required to maintain records of the volume of fuel fired and to report this data to verify compliance with permit condition and limit. The application and draft permit are available for inspection and comment at the Region 4 office, 1130 North Westcott Road, Schenectady, NY. Comments will be received for 30 days from the date of this notice.
