Permit(s) Applied for: Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management
Project is Located: Bronx, Bronx County
Project Description:
On February 13, 2002 the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation ("DEC") received an application to modify a Solid Waste Management permit that had been issued on July 17, 2000 to  New York City  Department of Parks & Recreation (DPR) and Ferry Point Partners, LLC (FPP) under 6NYCRR Part 360-1.9(b).  The  permit  authorized the placement of 1,000,000 cubic yards of fill for the purpose of bringing the site to grade  and using it to construct a golf course, park and associated facilities at Ferry Point Park.  The permit modification proposes to place on site an additional 550,000 cubic yards of  fill to achieve design grades that have been revised since the issuance of the original permit.  Receipt of the modification request was noticed in the February 20, 2002 edition of the Environmental Notice Bulletin.  Plans and technical specifications, which detail the placement of fill on the project site,  a Technical Environmental Assessment and a Methane Monitoring study report have been received as supporting material to the application.

The site is located in Community District 10, Block 5583, Lot 100 & Block 5622, Lot 1. The project area is located in the eastern portion of Ferry Point Park, bounded by Bronx Whitestone Bridge to the west, Balcolm, Miles & Emerson Avenues to the east, Schley Avenue to the north, and the East River to the south.

Project related information, including the permit modification request and supporting materials are available for viewing at a document repository established at the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation Borough Office at Ranaqua, 1 Bronx River Parkway, Bronx.

Brooklyn, NY 11208-
Application ID: 2-6105-00168/00002
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Brooklyn, Kings County
Project Description:
The Department proposes to modify the Title V Facility Permit issued on 2/11/00 to Action Packaging Corp. located at 667 Atkins Ave., Brooklyn, where the applicant manufactures polyethylene plastic bags. Flexographic printing presses are used to print various text and designs on the bags.

This draft permit reflects department initiated modifications to the Title V permit issued to Action Packaging. Monitoring and record keeping conditions have been incorporated into the current draft permit under the Printing MACT , 40 CFR Part 63, Subpart KK. These conditions are necessary to meet the minimum requirements of the MACT by demonstrating that the facility is not a major emitter of HAPs (hazardous air pollutants) but rather an area source. An additional condition added under 6 NYCRR Part 234.4 reinstates the monitoring condition to monitor and record the exhaust gas temperature of the catalytic incinerator as required per regulation.

The permittee may submit a written statement of reasons why the permit should not be modified, and/or request a hearing by 5/24/02. Relevant supporting materials and regulations are available for review during normal business hours at the listed DEC office. In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.5(d)(9) and 201-6.4(c), the Administrator of the US Environmental Protection Agency has the authority to bar issuance of any Title V Facility Permit if it is determined not to be in compliance with applicable requirements of the Clean Air Act or 6NYCRR Part 201.
