Application ID: 9-2924-00016/00041
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Lewiston, Niagara County
Project Description:

The Department has prepared a Draft Permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) and Title V of the Federal Clean Air Act Amendments and made a tentative determination to approve this application for the applicant's Modern Landfill facility. Modern operates a sanitary landfill facility located at Pletcher and Harold Roads in Model City, New York. The landfill is permitted by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) under 6 NYCRR Part 360, Solid Waste Management Facilities Regulations. The facility accepts municipal solid waste (MSW) and certain permitted non-hazardous industrial or special wastes. The landfill operations at the facility include: waste handling, tipping, covering, compacting, hauling, recyclable material sorting, construction & demolition (C&D) debris processing, tire shredding, leachate storage as well as equipment maintenance operations. The landfill has a landfill gas collection system which conveys collected LFG to an on-site flare (with provisions to add an additional flare for 40 CFR 60 Subpart WWW compliance when LFG generation rates exceed the existing flare’s capacity). The Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) for the Modern landfill facility is 4953. There are four emission units at the facility as follows: 1-LFGAS - described as landfilling activities which includes a 1500 cubic feet per minute (CFM) enclosed flare to combust landfill gas (LFG) and a proposed 3000 CFM flare for anticipated gas generation from presently permitted landfill operations; 2-LEACH - described as leachate storage and handling; 3-CDDEB - described as construction and demolition debris processing; and 4-TIRES - described as tire processing, shredding and reclamation. The landfill is subject to 40 CFR 60 Subpart WWW New Source Performance Standards for Municipal Solid Waste Landfills. The application, draft permit, relevant supporting materials, and regulations are available for review during normal business hours at the regional office. Written comments may be made within the 30 day period ending on the last filing date indicated in this notice. The Department may modify the draft permit based on significant or important information raised during the comment period. The Department may also schedule a public hearing based upon an evaluation of the nature and scope of any written objections raised. A hearing notice would contain instructions on filing for party status and submitting comments. In accordance with 6 NYCRR Parts 621.5(d)(9) and 201-6.4(c), the Administrator of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has the authority to bar issuance of any Title V Facility Permit if it is determined not to be in compliance with the applicable requirements of the Clean Air Act or 6 NYCRR Part 201. Following the 30 day comment period, the EPA will have an additional 45 days to review the draft or modified draft permit. If the EPA does not raise any objection in that time, the Department may then issue the final draft permit as the Title V Permit
