Application ID: 4-0124-00012/00013
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Coeymans, Albany County
Project Description:
The Department has received a Air State Facility (ASF) permit application from P & M Brick, LLC for an existing facility located at Route 144, Coeymans, NY.  The owner is P & M Brick, LLC  located at 494 Western Turnpike, Altamont, NY. This facility is a brick manufacturing plant.  This application is for a facility wide permit.  The applicant has proposed restricting the potential to emit (PTE) of its emission sources through enforceable permit conditions which will limit or cap emissions at a level which is less than 100 tons per year for carbon monoxide (CO), sulfur dioxide (SO2), particulate matter less than 10 microns (PM10), and for oxides of nitrogen (NOx); less than 50 tons per year for volatile organic compounds (VOC); less than 10 tons per year for each individual Hazardous Air Pollutant (HAP) and less than 25 tons per year for the total of all HAPs–the applicability thresholds for Part 2016, Title V.  By accepting these state and federally enforceable limits, the facility is not subject to this particular regulation.  The permittee is required to maintain records, including the number of bricks produced, and to report this data to verify compliance with permit conditions and limits.  Persons wishing to inspect the subject ASF 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 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 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 application and draft permit are available for review at the Region 4 Office, 1150 North Westcott Rd., Schenectady, NY.  The contact person is Michael Higgins (518) 3572069. 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 ASF Permit.
