Project Description:
The Department has received an Title V modification permit application from the General Electric Company, Selkirk Plastics Plant.  The facility is located in Albany County, New York, in the hamlet of Selkirk, N, approximately eight miles southwest of Albany, NY.
The Department has prepared a Draft Permit and has made a tentative determination to approve this application which is a proposal for the installation of a new transfer station for the loading of Parkson’s hazardous liquid waste to tanker trucks for shipment offsite.
Persons wishing to inspect the subject Title V modification 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 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: www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ohms/gudph1.htm.
Comments will be received for 30 days from the date of publication of this notice. If comments are received which raise significant issues or provide additional relevant information, the Department may modify the Draft Title V modification Permit.

Ravena, NY 12143 -0003
Application ID: 4-0124-00001/00053
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management
Project is Located: Coeymans, Albany County
Project Description:
Lafarge Building Materials, Inc., is proposing to modify its existing cement kiln dust (CKD) landfill located at the Lafarge cement plant facility in the Town of Coeymans, Albany County.  Neither the footprint nor the total 50-acre size of the existing CKD landfill will change.  Currently cells A, B and C have achieved maximum capacity and been closed.  Only cell D (approximately 11 acres in size) remains open and is currently receiving CKD waste generated by the cement kiln and its air pollution control system.  This proposed modification of the landfill would raise the final approved highest point from 170' above sea level to 268' above sea level.  The cell D footprint would overlap a portion of the closed cell C to form a stable slope.  The purpose of the modification is to extend the life of the landfill which receives 150,000 - 170,000 tons per year of CKD and will reach maximum capacity in 2006.  No significant impacts have been identified and a negative declaration under SEQR has been prepared.
