Project is Located: Crawford, Orange County
Project Description:
The applicant proposes to construct sections of a new road associated with a 12 lot residential subdivision within Freshwater Wetland PB-37 (Class 2) and the 100 foot adjacent area of that wetland.  The proposed road follows the route of an existing farm road which also served as access to a former sand and gravel mine which is being reclaimed as part of this project.  The area of wetland disturbance is approximately 0.06 acres.  A stormwater outfall structure is also proposed within the 100 foot adjacent area.

Facility: Tetz Asphalt Plant

Application ID: 3-3352-00255/00003
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification
Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Article 15 Title 5 Stream Disturbance
Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES
Project is Located: Wallkill, Orange County
Project Description:
The applicant proposes to construct a continuous flow hot-mix asphalt plant on 7.7 acres of a 10.9 acre parcel located on Crotty Road in the Town of Wallkill.  The proposed plant will consist of a drum burner, four 200-ton asphalt storage silos, two 30,000-gallon liquid asphalt storage tanks, 2-1,000 gallon asphalt emulsion tanks, one 10,000 gallon fuel oil tank, an 800 kW diesel generator, and a bag house.  The maximum annual capacity of the plant is proposed at 500,000 tons of asphalt.

The operation of the plant will require state air pollution control and stormwater discharge (SPDES) permits.  The Department has made a tentative determination to approve the SPDES permit application for the discharge of stormwater from the secondary containment areas of the petroleum bulk storage tanks. The permittee will be required to maintain records and report data to verify compliance with the SPDES permit conditions and discharge limits.  A draft SPDES permit is available for review at the NYSDEC Region 3 office (SPDES No. NY-0264997).

The Department has made a tentative determination to approve the application for an Air State Facility permit.  The permit application includes restricting the potential to emit from this facility through federally enforceable permit conditions which will limit air emissions at a level below the applicability thresholds for TitleV, and NOx RACT regulations.  These applicability thresholds include 100 tons per year for NOx, SO2, and CO, and 50 tons per year for VOCs.  By accepting federal and state enforceable limits, the applicant will not be subject to these regulations and the facility will not be subject to state New Source Review requirements.  However, the facility will be subject to federal New Source Performance Standards (40 CFR Part 60 subpart I - Standards of Performance for Hot Mix Asphalt Facilities).

The applicant has agreed to permit conditions to limit emissions of the above air pollutants by restricting asphalt production to a maximum of 500,000 tons per year and by restricting generator hours to 4,000 per year.  The permittee will be required to maintain records and report data to verify compliance with permit conditions and emission limits.  The application and Department prepared draft permit for the proposed facility are available for review the the NYSDEC Region 3 office.

Construction of the plant will involve the filling of approximately 2.32 acres of federally-regulated wetlands on the site.  Mitigation of wetland losses is to occur through the creation of approximately 3 acres of replacement wetlands at E. Tetz & Son's Pine Lane Mine located off U.S. Route 6 in the Town of Wawayanda.  The mitigation site is located near the banks of a sub-tributary of Monhagen Brook (DEC Water Index No. H-139-13-52-2-1a; Class B).  Use of the Pine Lane Mine site for wetland mitigation requires a new Protection of Waters permit and modification of the existing Mined Land Reclamation Permit.
