Tioga County

Applicant: Hadco Corp
10 Manor Pkwy
Salem, NH 03079 -4882
Facility: Hadco - Owego
1200 Taylor Rd
Owego, NY 13827 -1200
Application ID: 7-4930-00013/00087
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Owego, Tioga County
Project Description:
The Department has prepared a Draft Permit and has made a tentative determination to approve an Air State Facility Permit to Hadco at their facility located at 1200 Taylor Road, Owego, NY.  Hadco manufactures multi-layered printed circuit boards.  The steps used in the production of multi-layered boards are surface cleaning and preparation, lamination of photo-resist to copper coated sheets, selectively etching the copper, and joining multiple circuit boards together.  The facility emits all pollutants at less than the major source thresholds.   Although HADCO is not a major source of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), one emission unit is subject to VOC Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) because once a process is subject to RACT, it remains subject to RACT regardless of whether the facility remains a major source (the once-in, always-in policy).        

Persons wishing to inspect the subject 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 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
