Application ID: 9-0412-00073/00003
Permit(s) Applied for: Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification
Article 15 Title 15 Water Supply
Article 15 Title 5 Stream Protection
Project is Located: Olean, Cattaraugus County
Project Description:

The applicant proposes to take an increased supply of water from Olean Creek for use in the existing system, by constucting a new water treatment plant and a new intake, each with a greater capacity than those being replaced. The new filtration plant will have three treatment units each designed to produce 2.3 million gallons per day (mgd) of treated water when operated at a maximum hydraulic loading rate of 4.0 gallons per minute per square foot of filter area, for a combined total capacity of 6.9 mgd. The three intake screens are designed for an ultimate capacity of 3.0 mgd each, for a combined total capacity of 9.0 mgd. The three intake raw water pumps will have a nominal pumping capacity of 2.4 mgd each for a combined pumping capacity of 7.2 mgd. It is intended that the plant will be operated with two treatment units on line at any one time, producing up to 4.6 mgd of treated water. The plant design allows for potential future capacity increase. A process water discharge outfall structure will also be constructed in Olean Creek and the discharge permit application will be noticed separately. The project site is at the southeast corner of River and East Pine Streets.

Facility: Safety-Kleen Corp - Lackawanna Center

Lackawanna, NY 14218-
Application ID: 9-1409-00021/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 27 TItle 9 Resource Conservation and Recovery Act
Project is Located: Lackawanna, Erie County
Project Description:

The Department has made a tentative determination to modify this Hazardous Waste Management Facility Permit, DEC No. 9-1409-00021/00001, EPA I.D. No.: NYD981556541, and a Draft Modified Permit has been prepared for public review and comment.

Safety Kleen Systems, Inc., formerly Safety Kleen Corporation, is a solvent distributor and recycler (reclaimer). Its customers are primarily engaged in automotive repair, industrial maintenance and dry cleaning. The company offers spent solvent collection and reclamation. The facility currently operates under the Department's 6 NYCRR Part 373 Hazardous Waste Management Permit issued on 5/20/93. The area is zoned for commercial use and the facility is located in a business/industrial park. The majority of this facility's customers generate less than 1000 kg (2200 lbs) per month of hazardous wastes. Wastes managed by Safety Kleen Systems are transported in its transport vehicles to one of Safety Kleen's Recycle/Process Centers or to contract reclaimers located outside New York State. In many instances the recovered materials are returned to customers as usable product. Safety Kleen Systems plans to convert the existing permitted container storage areas to exempt 10 day transfer/storage areas in accordance with U.S. Department of Transportation Regulations. This will allow the facility to store other types of hazardous wastes not previously permitted as exempt wastes. References to these exempt transfer/storage areas will be removed from the permit.

The existing permitted 15,000-gallon hazardous waste storage tank will continue its operation under the renewed permit. The recyclable waste solvents generated by the Parts Washer Services, which is the primary business of the facility, will be collected by Safety Kleen's own transport vehicles and stored in the permitted tank prior to transportation to the Recycle Centers in tanker trucks. Containerized spent parts washer solvent routed to the facility will remain on the transport vehicles for a limited time prior to being transferred into the bulk storage tank through the return and fill station or transferred to permitted staging/storage areas, if required. Safety Kleen stores in the permitted storage tank three types of spent cleaning solvents: ignitable solvents, water-based solvents and solvents with a high flash point, which are not classified as ignitable under Department regulations. All these wastes derived from these solvents are managed as hazardous wastes. All ignitable wastes at the facility will be stored 50 feet from the facility property line.
