Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Johnstown, Fulton County
Project Description:
The Department has prepared a draft Title V permit for the gas collection system at the Fulton County landfill. The Department has made a tentative determination to issue this permit which will be based upon the capacity of the landfill. Although the capacity of the landfill is sufficient to make the facility subject to New Source Performance Standards under Subpart WWW the calculated non-methane volatile organic compound emissions are below the Title V facility threshold of 50 tons per year. Therefore, they will be subject to minimal requirements under the applicable landfill regulations for the gas collection and flare system that are currently installed to control order.The Department has prepared a Draft Permit and has made a tentative determination to approve this application.
In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.5(d)(9) and 201-6.4(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 applicable requirements of the Clean Air Act or 6NYCRR Part 201.

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 public hearing should be in writing and addressed to the Department representative listed below.
