Application ID: 8-1828-00030/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Bethany, Genesee County
Project Description:
The Department has received an Air State Facility application from Baskin Livestock Inc, for construction and operation of a facility to include a coal fired heater and rotary drier, to process bakery waste into animal feed.  The facility will be located at 9778 Creek Road in the Town of Bethany, Genesee County.

As part of this application, Baskin Livestock has proposed to restrict facility potentials to emit volatile organic compounds (VOC) to below the 50 ton per year applicability thresholds in 6 NYCRR Part 2016 (Title V) and Part 231-2 New Source Review in Nonattainment Areas and Ozone Transport Regions.  In response, the Department has drafted Special Permit Conditions to limit operation of the coal fired burner to 2750 hours in any 12 consecutive month period, and that specify stack testing to verify or modify the operating parameters necessary to restrict facility potential to emit VOC to less than 50 tons per year.

To verify that the facility is in compliance with these permit conditions, Baskin Livestock will be required to maintain a log of monthly hours of operation, fuel use, 12 month rolling totals of fuel use, calculate monthly emissions of VOC, NOX, and SO2, and calculate 12 month rolling totals of emissions.  These records are to be maintained for a minimum of five years, and must be made available with all supporting data to Department inspectors upon request.

The application and Draft Permit are available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office.

North of Rt 63
Piffard, NY 14454
Application ID: 8-2452-00006/00038
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES
Project is Located: York, Livingston County
Project Description:
The applicant operates an industrial facility located on Rt. 63 where they produce liquid organic peroxides that are used primarily in the production of acrylics, elastomers, low density polyethylene, polyesters, polystyrene and polyvinyl chloride.  The Department proposes to modify the referenced wastewater discharge permit based on a full technical review.  The proposed modification will delete several parameters based on monitoring results and will add monitoring for other parameters.  Acute toxicity testing requirements will also be added and the flow basis will be decreased from 182,000 gallons per day to 86,000 gallons per day to reflect actual flows.  The discharge enters the Genesee River, a class C stream in the vicinity of this facility.  The discharge will meet New York State Water Quality Standards with the proposed discharge limits.

The Department has made a tentative determination to approve this modification.  As a tentative determination, the Department seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision on permit issuance.  A draft permit is available for review.

Application ID: 8-5420-00001/00003
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Project is Located: Arcadia, Wayne County
Project Description:
The Department has received a Mined Land Reclamation application from Abram Cleason Co Inc for modified operations at the Abram Cleason - Newark Pit.  The applicant proposes to add 8 acres to the existing 134.5 acre life of mine (LOM) area.  A total of 103.3 acres will be affected by mining operations during the next 5 year permit term.  22.3 acres of the LOM area have been approved as reclaimed by the Department.  Excavation will not be below the local water table in the 8 acre expansion area.  The project site is located on the Abram Cleason Co Inc property on both sides of Eckert Road, west of Tellier Road, in the Town of Arcadia.  The mine site is immediately north of Class 1 Freshwater Wetland PA-29.

Operation of the mine will continue surface extraction of sand and gravel.  Excavation will be by front end loaders, and will remove approximately 400,000 tons of sand and gravel from the 8 acre expansion area.  Material will be processed on site as permitted previously.  Truck traffic is estimated by the applicant to continue to average approximately 10 round trips per hour.  Final reclamation will maintain the two ponds currently on the site, with stockpiled topsoil replaced and re-seeding on the remainder of the site to create re-vegetated open land.  Hours of operation will remain weekdays from 6 AM until 6 PM, and Saturdays from 6 AM to noon, with no operations on Sundays.

The application is available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office, and a copy of the application materials has been sent to the Town of Arcadia.
