Applicant: Buffalo Crushed Stone Inc
2544 Clinton St
PO Box 710
Buffalo, NY 14224 -0710
Facility: Wehrle / Barton Quarry
8615 Wehrle Dr
Clarence, NY 14031
Application ID: 9-1499-00064/02001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Clarence, Erie County
Project Description:
The Department has prepared a Draft Air State Facility Permit and has made a tentative determination to approve this application for the Buffalo Crushed Stone Wehrle/Barton quarry in the Towns of Clarence and Lancaster.  The facility includes a crushing and screening operation which produces construction aggregates and aggregate for the manufacture of hot mix asphalt.  The facility also has an asphalt batch plant and two asphalt drum plants.  The draft permit contains conditions which limit the facility's ability to emit oxides of nitrogen (NOx ), particulates, PM-10, carbon monoxide (CO), and volatile organic compounds (VOC) to less than the major facility threshold value of 100 tons per year (tpy) of each contaminant other than VOC, which has a major facility threshold value of 50 tpy.  If all facility emission sources were used concurrently and continuously, the above emissions would exceed the major facility thresholds for the contaminants.  The capping conditions provide specific formulae for calculating emissions of the contaminants for each emission source.  Buffalo Crushed Stone is required to annually certify continuous compliance with the emission caps through use of a 12-month rolling total emission rate, calculated on a monthly basis.  The application, supporting documentation, draft permit and regulations are available for review during normal business hours at the Region 9 Office of the NYSDEC in Buffalo.
