Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Goshen, Orange 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 of the Applicant's facility located in Goshen, New York.

     The Orange County Landfill is an existing 75 acre facility which opened in 1974 and continued to accept solid waste until January 1992. A landfill gas extraction/collection system and landfill gas to energy facility, independently owned and operated, was installed in 1988. Final closure of the facility was completed in 1995 under remedial action required by the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation. Enhancement of the gas extraction and collection system is ongoing in support of producing and adequate supply of landfill derived gas to the adjacent landfill gas to energy facility. The Orange County Landfill is required to obtain a Title V permit pursuant to 40CFR Part 60 Subpart Cc, Emission Guidelines and Compliance Times for Municipal Solid Waste Landfills, and 6NYCRR Part 208.

     A performance test to determine site specific concentration of NMOC was completed September 11, 2001. A Source Emissions Test Report dated November 2001 and letter dated December 3, 2001 document recalculated NMOC emissions from the landfill as below 50 megagrams per year. The facility is subject to the annual reporting requirement of 6NYCRR208.8(b)(1) and retesting site-specific NMOC concentration every 5 years using methods specified in 6NYCR208.5(a)(3)(iii).

     By acceptance of this permit, the permittee agrees that the permit is contingent upon strict compliance with the ECL, all applicable regulations, the General Conditions specified and any Special Conditions included as part of this permit.

     In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.5(d) and 201-6.4, 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 the applicable requirements of the Clean Air Act of 6NYCRR Part 201.

     The Application and Draft Permit are available for review at the Regional Office of the NYSDEC.

     

     Persons wishing to inspect the subject Title V files, including the application with all relevant supporting materials, the draft permit, and all other materials available to the DEC (the "permitting authority") that are relevant to this permitting decision should contact the DEC representative listed below. It is recommended that an appointment be made to confirm the availability of the subject files. The DEC will endeavor to make the files available within 2 business days of contact, during normal business hours (8:30 am through 4:45 pm), unless the requestor wishes to inspect the files at a later date.

     DEC will evaluate the application and the comments received on it to determine whether to hold a public hearing. A public hearing may be legislative or adjudicatory. A legislative public hearing is a proceeding which provides an additional opportunity for public comment. DEC's determination to hold a legislative public hearing will be based on whether a significant degree of public interest exists. If a legislative public hearing is to be held, a Notice of Hearing will be published which will include the time and place of the hearing and submitting comments. The applicant and all persons who have filed comments on the permit will be notified by mail of the public hearing. Comments and requests for a legislative public hearing should be in writing and addressed to the Department representative listed below.

An adjudicatory public hearing is a trial type proceeding which provides the opportunity for adjudication on the basis of evidence, including direct testimony and cross examination. An adjudicatory hearing is held only if substantive and significant issues relating to any findings or determinations the Department is required to make pursuant to the Environmental Conservation Law exist. A copy of the Department's permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Department web site at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ohms/gudph1.htm.

1.     Freshwater Wetlands (Article 24 ECL) to modify Freshwater Wetland A-25 (Class II) and the 100 foot adjacent area. The proposed modifications within the wetland proper consist of the filling of 1.01 acres of wetland for fairway construction and proposed tree cutting and canopy removal within approximately 4.55 acres of wetland to serve as playover areas for five holes. Approximately 11.52 acres of the 100 foot adjacent area is proposed to be graded or otherwise modified by construction activities. Approximately 6.31 acres of new wetland, meeting DEC mitigation criteria, are proposed to be constructed to offset impacts to wetland resources.

2.     Protection of Water - Dam Construction (Article 15 ECL) for the construction of a stone masonry dam across an unnamed sub-tributary of the New Croton Reservoir (H-31-P44-4-1) for stormwater management purposes.

3.     Protection of Water - Stream Disturbance (Article 15 ECL) to modify the bed and banks of an unnamed sub-tributary of the New Croton Reservoir H-31-P44-4-1, Classification: "B") in conjunction with the construction of stormwater facilities, construction of two dams, construction of cart crossings, grading for fairways and selective tree cutting. Disturbances to the stream bed encompass 674 square feet of area. Proposed modifications to the streambanks involve an area of 99,195 square feet.

4.     State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System SPDES (Article 17 ECL) for the discharge of 10,000 gallons per day of sanitary waste to the groundwater via a sub-surface sewage disposal system.

6.     Water Quality Certification (Section 401 of the Clean Water Act) for activities requiring approval from the Army Corps of Engineers. Such activities include grading and filling on hole 6, the proposed construction of two dams, discharge swale and cart crossings involving a total disturbance of 1.20 acres of federally regulated wetlands. A total of 8.7 acres of mitigation is proposed to compensate for wetland disturbances.
