Seneca County

Applicant: Village of Seneca Falls

Facility: Seneca Falls Wastewater Treatment
136 Fall St
Seneca Falls, NY 13148
Application ID: 8-4532-00014/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES
Project is Located: Seneca Falls, Seneca County
Project Description:
The Department has made a tentative determination to modify an existing SPDES permit to discharge up to 3.5 million gallons per day of treated municipal wastewater to the Seneca River from the Village of Seneca Falls Wastewater Treatment Plant, located at Seneca Street in the Village of Seneca Falls.  The proposed modification is a change in the Total Residual Chlorine limit from .25 mg/L to a calculated limit based on actual flows of the Seneca River and the Wastewater Treatment Plant.  This will allow the facility to add chlorine at concentrations required to adequately disinfect the effluent and maintain water quality standards.  The draft permit is available for review and comment at the Region 8 Office in Avon.

Steuben County

Applicant: Crowley Foods Inc
Metrocenter 49 Court St
Binghamton, NY 13902
Facility: Crowley Foods Arkport
25 Hurlbut St
Arkport, NY 14807
Application ID: 8-4652-00006/02001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Hornellsville, Steuben County
Project Description:
The Department has received an application from Crowley Foods LLC, for an Initial Air State Facility Permit, for operations at its Arkport Facility, located at 25 Hurlbut Street in the Village of Arkport, Town of Hornellsville.  Emission sources at the facility are two 25.2 million BTU per hour boilers.  The Arkport Facility was previously registered, capped by rule at less than half Major Stationary Source thresholds.  

Crowley Foods proposes increased boiler operation, which will result in sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions above the cap by rule level.  Crowley Foods proposes to keep emissions below the Major Stationary Source thresholds in 6 NYCRR Part 201-6 (Title V), by limiting # 6 fuel oil use in any 12 month period to 600,000 gallons, sufficient to restrict the facility potential to emit SO2 to less than 100 tons per year.

Since SO2 is the contaminant emitted at the greatest rate, and is emitted at more than twice the rate of volatile organic compounds (VOC), the fuel oil use limit will also restrict facility potentials to emit oxides of nitrogen (NOX), carbon monoxide (CO), total particulate matter (PM), and VOC to less than the Title V Major Stationary Source thresholds of 100 tons per year each for CO, NOX, PM, and SO2, and 50 tons per year for VOC.

Compliance verification includes maintenance of monthly fuel purchase records, 12 month rolling totals of fuel purchases, and a log of the sulfur content for each delivery of fuel oil.  Records are to be maintained for a minimum of five years, and are to be made available with all supporting data to Department inspectors upon request.

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