Chemung County

Applicant: Milton I Roy
Facility: Roy Gravel Pit
715 Sing Sing Rd
Big Flats, NY 14814
Application ID: 8-0724-00041/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Project is Located: Big Flats, Chemung County
Project Description:
The applicant proposes to renew and modify the current permit for the Sing Sing Road sand and gravel mine.  The modification will add 15.4 acres of sand and gravel reserves to the currently permitted 27.0 acre life-of-mine (LOM) area, and include provisions to modify the reclamation plan for the 27 acres currently affected by mining.  Mining in the expansion area will continue as a surface excavation of the Howard series of gravelly silt loam which is the predominate soil type on the site.  Mining and processing will be done utilizing the mechanical and hydraulic equipment currently in use on the site.  Mining in the expansion area will be a continuation of activities previously reviewed and approved for this mine.  No changes to the rate of mining, processing of excavated material, hours of operation, truck traffic or other aspects of the operation are proposed by this modification.  Final reclamation in the expansion area will return the site to graded, re-vegetated open space.  The modified reclamation plan for the existing mine will change the proposed final land use from agricultural to re-vegetated open space, and allow for a final mine floor elevation to be established at +/-948 feet AMSL.  The mine site is south of Sing Sing Road at the Barnes Hill Road intersection.

Application ID: 8-4642-00009/00109
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Erwin, Steuben County
Project Description:
Corning Inc has submitted an application to renew its current Title V Facility Permit for its Erwin Manufacturing Complex, located on Addison - South Hamilton Road in the Town of Erwin.  The facility manufactures ceramic filter substrates for catalytic emission control units for gasoline and diesel engines.  The facility meets the definition of a Major Source in 6 NYCRR Part 201-2.1(b)(21), and is subject to Part 201-6 requirements for a Title V Facility Permit due to potential emissions of particulate matter (PM), particulates smaller than 10 microns (PM-10), carbon monoxide (CO), and oxides of nitrogen (NOx) in excess of 100 tons per year each, and volatile organic compounds (VOC) in excess of 50 tons per year.

Facility Emission Units include:
C    U-00001, venting two automotive ceramic filter production lines;
C    U-00002, venting diesel ceramic filter production operations;
C    U-00004, venting older automotive ceramic production operations not included in Emission Unit  U-00001; and
C    U-00005, venting processes which may alternate between exempt research and development operations, and non-exempt production operations.

The renewal proposed is based on the current Title V permit, last modified February 7, 2006.  Proposed changes from the current permit include:
C    A facility-wide emissions limit on Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAP) - Corning has proposed restrictions on operations that will limit emissions of hydrogen chloride to 9.9 tons per year, and total emissions of all HAP combined to 24.9 tons per year, below the 40 CFR Part 63 Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) applicability thresholds of 10 tons per year for any individual HAP and 25 tons per year for all HAP combined.
C    A Compliance Assurance Monitoring (CAM) Plan, in accordance with 40 CFR Part 64 requirements, and;
C    Corrections to emission point locations at the facility.

Besides the restriction on HAP emissions, potential emissions from the facility will be unchanged from emissions authorized by the current permit.  

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