Project is Located: Goshen, Orange County
Project Description:
    The Department has prepared a Draft Title V Permit Modification 3 pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law and Title V of the federal Clean Air Act Amendments and made a tentative determination to approve this application.  The Al Turi Landfill & LFGTE facility is located in Goshen, Orange County, New York.
    Title V Permit Modification 3 is facilitated by a combination of documents including USEPA reopening for cause as documented by letter dated January 21, 2004, USEPA Order executed January 30, 2004 Granting in Part and Denying in Part Petition for Objection to Permit,  a May 2004 Title V permit modification application  submitted by Al Turi Landfill, Inc. ,  USEPA letter dated July, 8, 2004 objecting to Title V permit modification 1 (withdrawn), USEPA March 28, 2005 notification to reopen the Al Turi LFGTE Facility Title V permit for cause and USEPA preliminary comment letter dated August 17, 2005.
    The Al Turi Landfill & LFGTE Facility includes a total of five emission units.  Title V Facility Permit modification 3 defines two of the five facility emission units which are applicable to the landfill proper.
    1-LFGAS - Landfill mass and active gas collection system
    2-LEACH - Two leachate storage lagoons.
    Title V Permit Renewal 1 No. 3-3330-00184/00002 relates to the landfill gas to energy source which identifies the remaining three emission units and the landfill gas emissions control requirements pursuant to 6NYCRR Part 208.
    The combined facility is subject to the requirements of 6 NYCRR Part 208. Requirements identified within Title V permit modification 3 includes but not limited to: monthly monitoring at each well head for pressure, oxygen and temperature, and annual methane surface monitoring around the perimeter of the collection area and along a pattern which traverses the landfill.
    The facility's combined emissions for carbon monoxide and oxides of nitrogen exceed major source pollutant thresholds listed in 6 NYCRR Subpart 201-2.  The landfill's documented waste placement exceeds 2.5 million megagrams, accepted waste after 1987 and has a nonmethane organic compound emission rate of greater than 50 megagrams per year.  Therefore, the facility is subject to the provisions of Title V.

    In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.5(d)(9) and 201-6.4(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 two (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.
