Applicant: NYS Dept of Environmental Conservation
625 Broadway
Albany, NY 12233
Facility: Caledonia Fish Hatchery
16 North St
Caledonia, NY 14423
Application ID: 8-2422-00019/00004
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES
Project is Located: Caledonia, Livingston County
Project Description:
This is a mass modification, in accordance with New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Technical & Operational Guidance Series 1.2.2 and 6 NYCRR Part 750-1.18 (b)(7).

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recently promulgated effluent limitations guidelines and new source performance standards for the Concentrated Aquatic Animal Production (CAAP) Point Source Category at 40 CFR Part 451. This point source category consists of facilities with Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) codes of 0921 and 0273, i.e. fish farms and fish hatcheries. The following SPDES permit is affected by the new regulation and has been modified, en masse with all other fish hatcheries in NYS, to comply with the federal regulations:

Facility
Permit Number
DEC Number
Caledonia State Fish Hatchery
NY0035432
8-2422-00019/00004

The federal regulations require that the SPDES permits for all CAAP facilities include specific reporting requirements, including reporting of: use of investigational new animal drugs; failure in, or damage to, the structure of an aquatic animal containment system resulting in an unanticipated material discharge of pollutants to waters of the state; and the spill of drugs, pesticides or feed that results in a discharge to waters of the state. All of the 18 SPDES hatchery permits in NYS now include these reporting requirements.
    
The federal regulations also require that CAAP facilities that produce over 100,000 pounds per year of fish be required to develop, maintain, and implement a Best Management Practices (BMP) plan to prevent releases of significant amounts of pollutants to the waters of the state. Four of the eighteen facilities produce over 100,000 pounds of fish per year. They are: Caledonia, Catskill, Rome and Salmon River fish hatcheries. These four SPDES permits were modified to include the requirement to develop BMP plans.

Applicant: Dolomite Products Co Inc
1150 Penfield Rd
Rochester, NY 14625 -2202
Facility: Rochester Asphalt Walworth Plt
1200 Atlantic Ave
Walworth, NY 14568
Application ID: 8-5444-00006/00009
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Walworth, Wayne County
Project Description:
The Department has received an Air State Facility application from Dolomite Products Co Inc, d/b/a Rochester Asphalt Materials, for existing operations at its Walworth Hot Mix Asphalt Plant, located at 1200 Atlantic Avenue in the Town of Walworth, Wayne County.

As part of this application, Dolomite Products has proposed to restrict the Rochester Asphalt Materials - Walworth Plant potentials to emit carbon monoxide (CO), oxides of nitrogen (NOx) , sulfur dioxide (SO2), particulate matter (PM), and volatile organic compounds (VOC) to below the 6 NYCRR Part 201-6 (Title V) and Part 212.10 Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) applicability thresholds for a Major Stationary Source.  In response, the Department has drafted a Special Permit Condition to limit asphalt production in any 12 month period sufficiently to restrict CO emissions to less than 100 tons.  CO is the contaminant emitted at the highest rate, so the asphalt production limit will also reduce facility potentials to emit NOx, SO2, PM, and VOC to below the Part 201-6 and Part 212.10 thresholds of 100 tons per year each for CO, NOx, PM, and SO2, and 50 tons per year for VOC.

To verify that the facility is in compliance with these permit conditions, Dolomite Products will be required to maintain a log of monthly asphalt production at the facility, 12 month rolling totals of asphalt production, and calculate annual 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.

Also as part of this application, Dolomite Products Co. Inc. has proposed to use waste oil, classified as "Waste Fuel A" in 6 NYCRR Part 225, as a fuel, in addition to natural gas and #2 fuel oil.  Waste Fuel A does not contain chemical waste and is subject to contaminant limitations specified in Part 225-2.4(b).  For all three fuels, the contaminant emitted at the greatest rate remains CO.

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