Application ID:

8-2622-00202/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Chili, Monroe County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a Title V permit for a proposed new American Packaging Corporation flexographic packaging facility in the Town of Chili. The proposed new facility will print, laminate and provide post coatings for a variety of packaging materials used in the food industry. The 215,000 sq. ft facility will have pre-printing, laminating, ink, recycling, staging and shipping areas, as well as offices, maintenance and lab facilities. The facility will have two (2) printing lines and one (1) lamination line. Included within the operations will be the use of a thermal oxidizer, to be used for the capture and destruction of emissions. Based on projected production needs, a Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) cap of 70 tons per year (tpy) will be used. The American Packaging facility will be considered as a major source for VOC emissions and is subject to 6NYCCR Part 201-6 (Title V) regulations due to potential facility emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) of over 50 tpy.

This permit is subject to NESHAPs for the Printing and Publishing Industry (Subpart KK). As such, the facility requirements for area sources (minor) of HAPS are to provide an initial notice of applicability [40 CFR 63.829(d)] and maintain records to document area status [40 CFR 63.829(d)].

The facility is located in an area treated as an Ozone Transport Region and is subject to Nonattainment New Source Review (NNSR) requirements. Per 6NYCCR Part 231 and based on the 70 tpy cap, American Packaging Corporation will be obtaining 88.3 tons of Emission Reduction Credits. The source of these credits will be Occidental Chemical Corp.

Information regarding the demonstration of the Lowest Achievable Emission Rate (LAER) is available in the regional office and may be reviewed upon request.

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.

Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Greece, Monroe County


Project Description:

The Department has made a tentative determination to issue a permit modification to the SPDES permit which authorizes Monroe County to discharge up to 22 million gallons per day of treated municipal effluent from the Northwest Quadrant Pure Waters District Wastewater Treatment Plant to Lake Ontario. The permit modification includes the inclusion of a dilution study in a revised Schedule of Compliance, a revised interim limit for Total Residual Chlorine (TRC) from 2.0 to 1.5 mg/l, a delay in the effective date of the final effluent limit to the end of the new schedule, and a revised final effluent limit from 0.05 to 0.2 mg/l. Pending the result of the dilution study and following water quality evaluation, the final TRC effluent limit may be increased up to 1.5 mg/l as a minor modification. Therefore, the Department hereby seeks comments on the proposed modification, including a TRC limit of 0.2 mg/l with potential for increase to 1.5 mg/L, as a tentative determination, prior to making a decision. If the Water Quality evaluation determines that a final TRC limit of greater than 1.5 mg/l is protective of water quality, a proposed permit modification to include such limit in the permit would be processed as a major modification and public noticed again for comment.

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands

Project is Located:

Chili, Monroe County


Project Description:

Sumket Development proposes the installation of a 435 linear foot, 36-inch storm sewer and outfall structure, to replace a damaged 565 linear foot, 24-inch storm sewer and outfall structure. The storm sewer is located in both the Town of Gates and the City of Rochester, and extends from Scottsville Road to discharge point along a wetland and in proximity to the Genesee River. The project includes an approximately 1,800 square foot disturbance within the regulated adjacent area of NYS freshwater wetland (RH-2). In the regulated adjacent area, the outfall structure and storm sewer will be located the same footprint of the previous structure. The Department has made a tentative determination to issue an Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands Permit and seeks public comments prior to making a decision.

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation

Project is Located:

Montour, Schuyler County


Project Description:

The applicant, Wixson Sand & Gravel, LLC, is proposing to open a new 27.8 acre sand and gravel mine on the south side of Cotton-Hanlon Rd, in the Town of Montour, west of the Village of Odessa. Excavation of minerals would occur using a front end loader and excavator. The proposed mining plan includes processing unconsolidated minerals on-site using a portable screener and crusher. The proposed final floor elevation is approximately 980 feet above mean sea level, which accounts for an average depth of excavation of approximately 30-40 feet. No mining below the water table is proposed. A Stormwater Pollution Prevent Plan (SWPPP) has been prepared and a 4 foot-high vegetated earth berm is proposed along the northern limits of the mine parallel to Cotton Hanlon Rd. The proposed hours of operation are 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The facility would be closed on weekends and holidays. Under the proposed reclamation plan, the site would be reclaimed to open fields with the finished mining faces graded to a slope no steeper than 1:1.5 (vertical to horizontal), covered with topsoil, seeded and mulched.
