Application ID: 9-0608-00023/00043
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Title V Facility Permit
Project is Located: in Jamestown in Chautauqua County.
Project Description:

The Department has prepared a Draft Title V Permit and made a tentative determination to approve this application for existing emission sources which will be regulated by a facility-wide permit. The company manufactures decorative brass and other hardware. The facility is a major source under Title V of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments since its potential to emit (PTE) for volatile organic compounds (VOCs) is greater than the threshold value of 50 tons per year (tpy), the PTE for total hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) exceeds the 25 tpy threshold, and the PTE for an individual HAP, trichloroethylene, exceeds the 10 tpy threshold. There are six regulated Emmison Units. Emission Unit 1 covers the surface coating operations and aqueous cleaning processes. Under that emission unit, one process is the application of surface coatings that comply with the VOC reasonably available control technology (RACT) requirements of 6 NYCRR 228 and coatings that are exempt from VOC RACT because they qualify as low use specialty coatings. Another process is the application of a surface coating that does not comply with VOC RACT. A RACT analysis showed that compliant coatings which meet the manufacturing and quality requirements do not exist for all parts and that the addition of control equipment to reduce VOC emissions for those non-compliant coating operations is not feasible due to cost. The facility is required to continue to evaluate and test alternative compliant coatings under an existing Order on Consent ID# 9818. The Order requires that on a quarterly basis, reports be submitted documenting the evaluation of alternative coatings. In order to continue to use non-compliant coatings the facility must also receive a RACT variance from this department and be approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a single source State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision. This permit contains the enforceable provisions for this variance. Emission Unit 2, consists of one cold batch trichloroethylene (TCE) degreaser (not yet fully operational), one open top TCE degreaser and one TCE distillation unit. The emission unit includes a self contained cold batch degreaser cleaning unit. The unit was designed to meet the operational requirements of the Halogenated Solvent Cleaning National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPS), 40 CFR 63 Subpart T. Another unit, the open top vapor degreaser does not comply with the requirements of the Halogenated Solvent Cleaning NESHAPS. The unit is allowed to continue operating under the above Order on Consent until the cold batch degreaser becomes fully functional and can handle the whole TCE cleaning load of the facility. The Application, Draft Permit, relevant supporting materials, and regulations are available for review during normal business hours at the DEC office provided in this notice. Comments of support or objection may be made by filing a written statement by the deadline date indicated. DEC may schedule a public hearing based upon a evaluation of the nature and scope of any written objections raised. Hearing Notices will contain instructions on filing for party status and submitting comments. In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.5(d)(9) and 201-6.4(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.

Permit(s) Applied for: Article 27 TItle 9 Resource Conservation and Recovery Act
Project is Located: in Porter in Niagara County.
Project Description:

The Department has drafted a modified Module III and made a tentative determination to modify the Part 373 Permit for CWM's Model City Facility. The proposed modification to the permit includes the selection of Final Corrective Measures for the facility. The proposed changes are detailed in a Fact Sheet. As a result of past waste management operations, a variety of chemicals used at the CWM facility, and by the Department of Defense when the facility was part of the Lake Ontario Ordinance Works, have impacted on-site soils and groundwater. In July, 1989, the Department issued a Permit (No. 90-87-0476) to CWM, that required the company to develop a corrective measures program to remediate the areas impacted by the contamination. Subsequently, CWM investigated the nature and extent of the contamination and evaluated potential corrective measures that could be used to remediate the facility. As directed by the Department, CWM installed Interim Corrective Measures (ICMs) in certain areas of the facility to limit the spread of contaminants. The ICMs which have been implemented include groundwater collection systems at eight different areas of the facility. They also include removal of PCB contaminated soils and in-situ stabilization of lagoon sludges. A more detailed description of the ICMs is provided in a Statement of Basis and in the permit itself. Based on the results of the CMS and on performance monitoring data generated as part of the ICMs projects, the Department has determined that the ICMs which have been implemented at the facility are capable of achieving the goals of the corrective action program and are protective of human health and the environment. The ICMs, when combined with a detailed monitoring and response program and with appropriate Institutional Measures should serve as the basis for Final Corrective Measures for the facility. The proposed remedy requires CWM to operate and maintain the specified remedial systems in perpetuity. It also requires CWM to provide the necessary financial assurance to cover perpetual care of those remedial systems.

Application ID: 9-5628-00005/00035
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility Permit
Project is Located: in Covington in Wyoming County.
Project Description:

The Department has prepared an initial Draft Air State Facility Permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) and the Federal Clean Air Act Amendments and made a tentative determination to approve this application for the existing and proposed emissions from the applicant's Pearl Creek Road facility which manufactures steel tubing for various commercial applications. The plant has seven tube production lines.

The facility is subject to the volatile organic compounds (VOC) control requirements contained in 6 NYCRR Part 228 for both an existing tube surface coating line and a similar proposed line. In the effort to comply with Part 228, the applicant has preliminarily demonstrated that alternative compliant coatings are currently not available, and has completed a reasonably available control technology (RACT) analysis using procedures contained in Air Guide 20. The Department has reviewed that RACT analysis for VOC and determined that control of VOC as required by Part 228 does not seem feasible due to the cost of installing, maintaining and operating controls. Consequently, the Department has tentatively determined that the facility should be granted a variance from the control requirements of Part 228. The proposed permit contains enforceable conditions which establish basis for approving the variance and all other applicable emission control requirements for the facility's air emission sources. The conditions also set limits on VOC emissions which correspond to those used in the RACT analysis and require an annual review of feasible control technologies.

The issued permit will be submitted to the Environmental Protection Agency for review and approval of a single source revision of the State Implementation Plan. The subject application, draft permit, relevant supporting materials and regulations are available for review at the Department's Region 9 Office, Buffalo.
