Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Kingsbury, Washington County
Project Description:
The Department has prepared a draft permit modification and made a tentative determination to approve this modification to the existing Title V facility permit for the applicant's municipal waste combustor. The modification will require carbon injection as an additional pollution control and establishes the injection rate at 10 pounds per hour. Administrative changes will also be made to the permit replacing some current conditions with Department mandated revisions. These changes will not affect any existing emission limits or standards and do not authorize any additional activities at this facility. A copy of the draft revised Title V permit can be reviewed at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/dardata/boss/afs/draft_atv_e.html

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 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 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.), unless the requester 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

The permit application and draft permit are available for review at the Warrensburg DEC Office.  Comments will be received for 30 days from the date of this notice.  If comments are received which raise significant issues or provide additional relevant information, the Department may modify the Draft modified Title V Facility Permit.

In accordance with 6 NYCRR Parts 621.5 (d) and 2016.4(c), 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 or 6 NYCRR Part 201.
