Application ID: 4-0101-00171/00013
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Albany, Albany County
Project Description:
The Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has received an application from the City of Albany to to modify its Air Title V (ATV) permit for its municipal solid waste landfill facility located at Rapp Road, Albany, NY.  Landfill gas (primarily composed of methane) is produced by the decomposition of wastes in the landfill and is extracted from the landfill and used to produce electricity.  Flares are used as an air pollution control device by burning off excess gas. This modification will allow for the installation of an additional flare to supplement two existing flares at the landfill, and will provide additional capacity for burning off gases released from the landfill.  The new flare will be capable of handling a landfill gas flow rate of up tp 3,300 standard cubic feet per minute (scfm).

Persons wishing to inspect the subject ATV permit application file 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 requester wishes to inspect the files at a later date.

The 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.  DECís 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 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 Departmentís permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Departmentís wed site at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ohms/gudph1.htm.

Comments on this application will be received for a period of 30 days from the date of this notice. If comments are received which raise significant issues or provide additional relevant information, the Department may modify the Draft ATV Permit.
