Project Description:
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) has reviewed the hazardous waste management permit application submitted by the Operator: Texaco Fuels & Lubricants, Old Glenham Road, Beacon, NY for Texaco, Inc. and has made a tentative determination to issue a 6NYCRR Part 373 permit. FACILITY DESCRIPTION: Texaco Fuels & Lubricants facility is located on 140 acres of land in Glenham, New York. It is an onshore, non-produc- tion, non-transportation laboratory complex engaged in research, develop- ment and technical service related to petroleum products and energy. Petroleum products, solvents and various chemical compounds are used at this plant in connection with research functions. The Facility generates several wastes defined as hazardous wastes under 6 NYCRR 371. Research and development operations conducted at the facility generates hazardous wastes of diversified types and amounts based on the chemicals and solvents used in these operations. There are no industrial or manufacturing processes which generate these wastes. As a result, the facility generates small amounts of hazardous wastes when compared to manufacturing and industrial facilities of comparable size, but the diversified nature of research and development work can yield a hazardous waste stream consisting of many different types of waste chemicals in very small quantities. TENTATIVE DETERMINATION: After review of the Part 373 permit applica tion, the Department has found it to be complete. Based upon the complete application, the Department has made a tentative determination to issue a 6NYCRR Part 373 permit to the facility for the purpose of operating a hazardous waste storage facility and has prepared a draft 6NYCRR Part 373 permit. The draft permit requires compliance with 6NYCRR 373-2 "Final Status Standards for Owners and Operators of Hazardous Waste Treatment, Storage and Disposal Facilities" and 6NYCRR Part 376 "Land Disposal Restrictions" as well as with all conditions in the Part 373 permit. The draft permit also requires the facility to institute corrective action to address any uncorrected releases at all solid waste management units. Based upon available information, NYSDEC has made an assessment of the need for corrective action and has made a tentative determination that there has been evidence of releases of hazardous waste or hazardous waste constituents to the environment. The Permittee is required to perform corrective action at the container storage area (Building 83) and perform an environmental investigation at the cliff above the waste water treatment plant, all of the facilities industrial sewers, and the Millers Station. The Permittee is also required to continue the monitoring activities at the CERCLA area. Pursuant to Part 617 of the New York State regulations for Article 8 (the State Environmental Quality Review Act SEQR), NYSDEC has deter mined that the proposed action described above, is a Type II action and is not subject to a SEQR review. Any future permit modification may require a SEQR review. DOCUMENT AVAILABILITY: Copies of the draft permit, the supporting permit application, and the Fact Sheet are available for inspection at the Department of Environmental Conservation, at the Department's Region 3 office, 21 South Putt Corners Road, New Paltz, NY 12561-1696 contact person: Mr. William E.
