ENB Region 9 Completed Applications 03/24/2004

Chautauqua County

Applicant: Jamestown Macadam Inc
PO Box 158
Jamestown, NY 14702 -0158
Facility: Jamestown Macadam
Walden Avenue
Jamestown, NY 14701
Application ID: 9-0608-00050/00009
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Jamestown, Chautauqua County
Project Description:
Jamestown Macadam Inc has requested a modification to their Air State Facility Permit. This facility consists of three separate asphalt plants on the same property on Walden Avenue in the City of Jamestown, Chautauqua County. The modification of the existing permit allows the facility to burn Waste Fuel A (waste oil) and No. 2 fuel oil in Plant 3 dryer in addition to natural gas. The facility has demonstrated that the Plant 3 dryer has a combustion efficiency of greater than 99% which is required by 6NYCRR Part 225.2. This modified permit also contains requirements for the facility burning Waste Fuel A and No. 2 oil in Plants 1 and 2 at some future date.  This permit would also retain the 12 month asphalt production limit for Emission Units P-00001 and P-00002 at 123,250 tons per year. It reduces the 12 month production limit for Emission Unit P-00003 from 380,000 to 375,000 tons per year. This reduction in asphalt production will keep each emission unit under 25 tpy for each criteria pollutant. The capping conditions also keep annual facility emissions below the Title V applicability threshold. All other facility data remain as currently permitted. The Application and Draft Permit are available for review at the Region 9 Office of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.
