Project is Located: Dewitt, Onondaga County
Project Description:
    This is a noticing of this application which was renoticed on December 13, 2001, at the Request of New York Public Interest Research Group (NYPIRG).  NYPIRG representatives were unable to comment during the public comment period because their offices were serverely damaged as a result of the September 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center.  This renotice was made due to the significant number of changes to the original permit.  In all cases the changes have resulted in a clearer explanation of the permit. In some cases the changes have resulted in greater environmental protection, but in no case have there been a relaxation of environmental protection.
    Persons wishing to inspect the subject Title V files, including the application with all relevant supporting materials; the draft permit (which includes the OP-Flex Plan and Emission Unit Matrix), and supporting materials, which include the Permit Review Report, summary of Applicable Requirements, and second responsiveness summary are 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 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's wed site at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ohms/gudph1.htm
