Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Seneca Falls, Seneca County

Project Description:

The Department has made a tentative decision to renew and modify the Title V Permit for the Seneca Meadows, Inc. (SMI) landfill, located at 1786 Salcman Road in the Town of Seneca Falls, Seneca County, New York. The facility is located on an 898-acre site and consists of the existing landfill, the tire facility, an existing a soil borrow area, stormwater channels and access roads, stormwater ponds and a leachate treatment facility. This renewal and modification does not include any changes to the landfill footprint or the waste acceptance rate.

The SMI facility also includes flares, owned by SMI, that are located across Route 414 at the Seneca Meadows Renewable Resource Park. The Seneca Energy II, LLC (SE II) Landfill Gas-to-Energy (LFGTE) facility (a separately owned and operated facility) which purchases landfill gas from SMI and generates electricity and pipeline quality landfill gas from combusting that landfill gas) is also located at the park. The SE II LFGTE facility is permitted under a separate Title V permit.

The SMI facility includes four emission units: Emission Unit 1-LEACH (leachate treatment system including two above ground storage tanks), Emission Unit 1-LFGAS (landfill gas from five landfill areas and associated control equipment including the flares), Emission Unit 1-SOILS (for soil and temporary BUD [beneficial use determination] material storage), and Emission Unit 1-EMGEN for back-up emergency generators.

Several modifications are proposed in the draft Title V Permit, which have been authorized by Operational Flexibility or are intended to be approved as Minor Modifications. These modifications include: emissions and control for emissions from the new on-site leachate treatment system consisting of two above ground storage tanks, sulfide controls and a new reverse osmosis (RO) system; emissions from a new stone crushing plant including a 415 HP diesel motor (Emission Unit 1-CRUSH) and stone screening operations including a 97 HP diesel motor (Emission Unit 1-SCREE); installation of a previously permitted but now specified as a 4,000 cfm enclosed flare, as well as a 3,000 cfm open flare; and operation of an emergency generator set. The Department has designated a flare with 5,093 cfm for previously permitted capacity that can be installed if necessary in the future. Total flare capacity as permitted is 18,293 cfm. The facility is now subject to 40 CFR Part 63 Subpart ZZZZ, 40 CFR 60 Subpart IIII and Subpart JJJJ for the applicable emergency generator sets.

The permit also includes updates to the list of exempt and miscellaneous sources, and changes to permit conditions to reflect regulatory changes.

The application being granted quantifies greenhouse gases as required by the Tailoring Rule.

The SMI facility is major with respect to Prevention of Significant Deterioration and New Source Review (PSD/NSR), is subject to 6NYCRR Part 227-2 NOx RACT, and includes a total facility emissions limit (enforceable emissions restriction) of less than 200 TPY for NOx and less than 500 TPY for CO.

The renewed SMI Title V permit will continue the SMI facility's emission limits which meet the established facility limits discussed above.

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.
