Application ID: 3-5522-00087/00019
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Cortlandt, Westchester County
Project Description:
    The Department has prepared a Draft Permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) and Title V of the Federal Clean Air Act Amendments and made a tentative determination to approve this modification application for the Applicant’s facility located in Buchanan, Westchester County, New York.
    This is a minor modification of the existing Title V permit. This modification will accommodate the replacement and upgrade of the existing reclaim feeder system.
    Currently, the fresh stored or screened reclaimed gypsum material is recycled into process through front-end loaders, which transport it to a feed hopper located inside the crusher building. This feed hopper then transfers the material to a conveyor, which in turns transfers the material to the main conveyor leading from the rock crusher building to the storage bins into the main building.
    The planned project, which will be permitted under this modification, entails the replacement and upgrade of the existing reclaim feeder system. The new system will consist of two components: reclaim material will first be loaded into a receiving hopper/feeder unit that will break down the material into smaller pieces. This feeder will convey the gypsum to a second metering feeder unit with a 40-ton capacity.
    The metering feeder will be used to more precisely distribute the reclaim gypsum to a conveyor that in turn will transfer the material to the main conveyor leading from the rock crusher building. Optionally, it will be possible to reverse the transfer conveyor from the metering feeder to send the reclaim gypsum back to the rock shed.
    Regulatory requirements pertaining to this modification include 200, 201-6, 201-7, 211, 212, 215, 40 CFR 60 Subpart OOO.
      By acceptance of this permit, the permittee 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.
    The Draft Permit may be viewed and printed from the Department web site at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/dar/boss/afs/index.html.  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 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 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.
