Project Description:

The Department has drafted a permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) and Title V of the Federal Clean Air Act, and has made a tentative decision to approve this permit for the applicant's printed circuit board manufacturing operations in Endicott, NY.

In accordance with 6 NYCRR parts 621.6(d)(9) and 201-6.1(c), the Administrator of the US EPA has authority to bar issuance of a 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.
