Greene, NY 13778 -0130
Facility: Raymond Corporation
Wheeler Street
Greene, NY 13778
Application ID: 7-0830-00037/00025
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Greene, Chenango County
Project Description:
The Department is proposing to renew the Title V permit for Raymond Corporation. Raymond Corporation manufactures fork lift trucks.  The primary sources of emissions are paint spray booths.  Other operations (such as bench assembly) are very small sources of emissions and are considered exempt and/or trivial.  

Raymond’s coating operations are subject to the DEC’s surface coating regulation, 6 NYCRR Part 228.  There are no Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions controls on the booths; Raymond complies with DEC’s surface coating regulations by using low VOC-containing coatings.  Raymond also must comply with an annual VOC emissions cap (to avoid New Source Review) and also emissions caps on hazardous air pollutants. Raymond has demonstrated, through modeling, that predicted ambient impacts of various pollutants do not exceed DEC recommended guideline concentrations.

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.  The Draft Permit and Permit Review Report may be viewed and printed from the Department web site at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/dar/boss/afs/index.html.

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: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ohms/gudph1.htm.

Application ID: 7-1146-00001/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES
Project is Located: Virgil, Cortland County
Project Description:
The applicant proposes a discharge of 80,000 gallons per day (an increase of 20,000 gallons per day) of treated sanitary wastewater to Gridley Creek, a class C(T) watercourse from a tertiary treatment plant at the applicant’s facility located at New York State Route 392.
  Upgrades include new effluent screening by a manually-raked bar rack; a new secondary clarifier (for improved solids settling and captures); new cloth-disk type Tertiary Filters (to meet summer effluent limits for BOD5 and TSS via filtration); a new larger chlorine contact tank (to provide 15-minute contact time for projected peak hourly flows); a new sludge holding tank; and a new chlorine residual meter.
  The department has made a tentative determination to issue a permit for a State Pollutant Elimination System permit under Article 17 of the Environmental Conservation law.  This tentative determination indicates that the discharge regulated under this statute is considered to satisfy regulatory standards for permit issuance, based on information available to the Department at this time.  As a tentative determination, the Department seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision on permit issuance.  As such, this tentative determination does not signify department approval for or endorsement of the activity for which a permit is sought or for the overall proposed project.
  Refer to this application by application number listed above and SPDES # NY 002 7197.
