Facility: States Pit
St Rte 228 - 0.85 Miles Ne of V/ODESSA
Odessa, NY
Application ID: 8-4420-00054/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Article 15 Title 5 Stream Disturbance
Project is Located: Catharine, Schuyler County
Project Description:
The Department has received a Mined Land Reclamation application from The Town of Hector for a new 37.63 acre sand and gravel mine on a 53.71 acre parcel in the Town of Catharine.  The mine site is located on the Carl States property, northwest of NY State Route 228, approximately 0.85 miles northeast of the Village of Odessa.  Access to the mine will involve placement of a 16 by 8 foot box culvert in Catlin Mill Creek, which is a protected trout stream.  There are no NY State regulated freshwater wetlands within the Life of Mine area.

Excavation by bulldozer and front end loader is proposed to remove 800,000 cubic yards of sand and gravel from the life of mine area over an approximately 16 year operational life.  Topsoil and overburden will be stockpiled and seeded for later use in site reclamation.  Excavated material will be processed on site by a screening plant, which will be moved on the pit floor as necessary to remain near the working face of the excavation.  Screened material will be stockpiled for loading onto trucks.  The applicant has estimated maximum traffic from mining operations to be 20 trucks per hour.

Mining is not proposed below the local water table.  Reclamation will occur concurrently with mining, and will result in revegetated land after sand and gravel excavation is completed.  Control of storm water on the site will involve sloping the mine floor into the face of the excavation to allow storm water infiltration, and temporary sediment traps on the mine floor where needed.  Excavated sediment traps will collect storm water runoff from the access road cut, and will be maintained until a stable vegetative cover is established in the road cut area.  No off site discharge of storm water runoff from the mined area will be permitted.

Hours of operation proposed are 7 AM until 3:30 PM on weekdays only, with no operations on weekends or holidays.  Final reclamation to open land is proposed, and will include the replacement of stockpiled topsoil and seeding with a seed mixture suitable for pasture or hay.

The application is available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office, and a copy of the application materials has been sent to the Town of Catharine.

Oaks & Airport Rds
Hornellsville, NY
Application ID: 8-4652-00045/00002
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Project is Located: Hornellsville, Steuben County
Project Description:
The Department has received an application from Sharps Hill Real Estate Development Corp for a new 17.8 acre sand and gravel mine on a 46 acre property in the Town of Hornellsville.  The mine site is located northeast of the intersection of Airport Road and Grimm Road, and approximately 800 feet north of Interstate Route 86 (formerly NYS Route 17).  A 12.5 acre section of the property was permitted for mining operations in 1994, but no mining has yet occurred on the site.

Excavation by bulldozer and loader is proposed to remove approximately 300,000 cubic yards of sand and gravel over a 5 year operational life.  Some excavated material will be processed on site by dry screening, with the remainder utilized as run of bank material without processing.  The maximum processing rate will be less than 150 tons per hour. The applicant has estimated maximum truck traffic from hauling operations at 15 truck trips per hour.

Excavation is not proposed below the local water table.  Plans show diversion ditches that will direct storm water runoff within the mined area into retention ponds to allow infiltration into the soil.  No discharges of storm water from the mined area are proposed.  There are no NY State regulated streams or freshwater wetlands within the mine area, although a protected stream is near its north and west sides.  No discharge to the stream will be permitted.

Hours of operation proposed are weekdays from 7 AM until 4:30 PM and Saturdays from 7 AM until 3:30 PM, with no operations on Sundays.  Final reclamation to open vegetated land is proposed, graded to allow possible future residential development, and will include the replacement of stockpiled topsoil and seeding with an approved mixture.

The application is available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office, and a copy of the application materials has been sent to the Town of Hornellsville.

Facility: High Acres Landfill & Recycling Center
425 Perinton Pkwy
Fairport, NY 14450
Application ID: 8-9908-00162/00043
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Perinton, Multiple Counties
Project Description:
Waste Management of NY, LLC has submitted an application for the renewal of the Title V Facility Permit for air pollution processes at the High Acres Landfill and Recycling Center located at 425 Perinton Parkway in the Town of Perinton, Monroe County.

The Title V Facility Permit was originally issued June 6, 2001.  The application for renewal includes a proposed major modification to authorize the construction and operation of a beneficial use project consisting of four landfill gas fueled 2,233 horsepower reciprocating engines to combust gas from the existing permitted landfill area.  It also includes the proposed construction and operation of an enclosed flare and removal from the permit of an open candlestick flare which is no longer on site.

Emission points at the landfill currently include one enclosed flare, four landfill gas fueled 1,138 horsepower reciprocating engines and fugitive emissions from the landfill. The facility is currently subject to Title V permitting requirements because the facility's Potential to Emit Carbon Monoxide and Nitrogen Oxides exceeds the applicability threshold of 100 tons per year for a major stationary source.

The Draft Title V Facility permit may be viewed or downloaded as a pdf file at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/dardata/boss/afs/draft_atv.html

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 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 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.  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:
