Leroy, NY 14482
Application ID: 8-1836-00007/00152
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Le Roy, Genesee County
Project Description:
Lapp Insulator Co LLC has submitted an application for renewal of its Title V Facility Permit for its LeRoy Facility, located at 130 Gilbert Street in the Town of LeRoy.  This facility is subject to 6 NYCRR Part 201-6, Title V Facility Permits, for major stationary sources due to potential emissions of particulates in excess of 100 tons per year. Potential emissions authorized by the renewed permit will be unchanged from those of the current permit.

The Title V Facility Permit was originally issued August 10, 1999 and modified effective September 24, 2002, for operation of a manufacturing facility producing electrical insulators from a misture of clay, feldspar, and silica.  The September 2002 modification was an administrative change in compliance reporting schedules from an annual permit anniversary period to an annual calendar year period.  No significant changes from the current Title V Permit, as modified September 24, 2002, are proposed.

The facility has 16 emission units including:
clay insulator mold production operations; natural gas fired dryers for clay insulator mold drying; gas fired kiln dryers for clay insulator mold drying prior to final firing; gas fired tunnel kilns for firing finished clay insulator molds; gas fired periodic kilns for firing finished clay insulator molds; metal part coating operations; a natural Gas fired air compressor; natural gas fired boilers; silicone spraying operations; and cement filling operations for insulator caps.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.5(d)(9) and 2016.4(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.

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 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 public 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 web site at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ohms/gudph1.htm.
