Permit(s) Applied for: Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification
Project is Located: La Grange, Dutchess County
Project Description:
The Town of LaGrange proposes to construct approximately 12,300 linear feet of  new sewer main ( Titusville Trunk ) to convey wastewater from the Titusville Sewer District, currently served by the Titusville treatment plant ( 165,000 gallons per day ), located on Scenic Hills Drive, to the Hartstone Trunk Sewer located north of NYS Rt. 55.  This wastewater will then flow to a new treatment plant under construction on the west side of Overlook Road.  
Approximately 3,000 linear feet of the Titusville Trunk is proposed to be constructed at the eastern edge of the 100 foot adjacent area of State Freshwater Wetland PV-32 ( Class II ) and to the west of Noxon Road.  Construction of this sewer main will require two crossings of wetland PV-32, affecting 0.43 acres.  A total of 3.26 acres of the 100 foot wetland adjacent area will be temporarily disturbed.  The Titusville Trunk line is designed to be a gravity flow system.

The new wastewater treatment plant off Overlook Road is currently permitted for a total flow of 126,600 gallons per day and its SPDES permit will require a permit modification from the Department to authorize the additional flows from the Titusville Sewer District. The Department has agreed to process the application for this SPDES modification separately.

Facility: Al Turi Landfill & Lfgte Facility
73 Hartley Rd
Goshen, NY 10924
Application ID: 3-3330-00184/00002
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Goshen, Orange County
Project Description:
        The Department has prepared a revised Draft Title V Permit Renewal 1 pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law and Title V of the federal Clean Air Act Amendments for the Al Turi Landfill & LFGTE facility located in Goshen, Orange County, New York.

    Draft Title V Permit Renewal 1 was originally published within the Environmental Notice Bulletin November 9, 2005.  This revised Renewal 1 incorporate changes discussed with USEPA January 19, 2006, February 13, 2006 and February 14, 2006. Revisions include:

1.    The PSD cap under 201-7 has been replaced with a general Title V permit condition under 201-6.5.  The annual maximum landfill gas combustion has been reduced from 1,300 x 10*6 cubic feet to 900 x 10*6 cubic feet.  This general condition under 201-6.5 also requires the operation of two gas meters.  One meter shall record total flow from the landfill proper.  The second gas meter shall record bypass gas combusted within the enclosed flares.  See permit condition 25.
2.    The frequency to perform testing demonstrating compliance with NOx RACT has been revised to clearly indicate "upon permit renewal".  See conditions 41 and 42.
3.    A condition to conduct performance testing to demonstrate NMOC control efficiency of the two enclosed flares has been added to the permit.  Testing frequency established as upon permit renewal.  See permit condition 31.
4.    The Permit Review Report basis for monitoring section has been enhanced to include additional description of landfill gas control procedures.   
5.    Condition 39 has been changed to include operating temperature range of the chiller.
6.    Condition 28 has been revised by deleting the last sentence of the first paragraph. Reference to NMOC destruction efficiency is inappropriate in the context of a gas treatment system.
    The Al Turi Landfill & LFGTE Facility consists of five emission units. Title V Facility Permit Renewal 1 defines three of the five facility emission units which are applicable to the landfill gas to energy site.  These emission units are subject to the requirements of 6 NYCRR Part 208 and or 6NYCRR 227-2.  The remaining two emission units, subject to 6NYCRR Part 208, are defined within Title V Permit Modification 3 (No. 3-3330-00184/00001).  Modification 3 is a separate document which primarily relates to the landfill proper.
    By acceptance of this permit, the Ameresco LFG-1 Inc. agrees that the permit is contingent upon strict compliance with the ECL, all applicable regulations, the General Conditions specified and any Special Conditions included as part of this permit.
    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 applications and USEPA documents 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.
    DEC will evaluate comments received on the revised conditions contained within Draft Title V Permit Renewal 1 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 .
