Project Description:
The Department has drafted a renewal permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the New York State Environmental Conservation Law and Title V of the Federal Clean Air Act Amendment and made a tentative determination to approve this application.  Newstech St. Lawrence is located in the Town of Newton Falls, St. Lawrence County, New York.  This existing facility manufactures paper from wood pulp.

The facility consists of two paper machines, one off-machine coater, four oil-fired boilers, exhaust from a titanium make-up tank, and exhaust from a coating kitchen.  In addition to these sources, the facility has various other sources that are exempt and trivial.

The facility is subject to 6NYCRR Part 212, General Process Emission Sources; 6NYCRR Part 225, Fuel Composition and Use - Sulfur Limitations; 6NYCRR Part 227, Stationary Combustion Installations; and 6NYCRR Part 228, Surface Coating Processes.

Persons wishing to inspect the subject Title V 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 a.m. through 4:45 p.m.), 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 web site at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ohms/gudph1.htm.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Part 621.5(d)(9) and 201-6.4(c), the Administrator of the 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.  After the public comment period, the USEPA will be provided a proposed permit and will have an additional 45 day period for review.  If USEPA does not raise any objection, the Department will issue the permit.
