Permit(s) Applied for: Article 15 Title 15 Water Supply
Project is Located: Woodbury, Orange County
Project Description:

    The Town of Woodbury's Consolidated Water District has applied for a Water Supply permit (WSA #10,977) to add the following 3 new wells:
-- TW-1 at 290 gallons per minute (gpm),
-- TW-2 at 120 gpm, and
-- TW-4 at 34 gpm,
for a total water taking of up to 444 gpm, to serve the proposed 451-unit WP-3 Residential Subdivision.  The WP-3 Residential Subdivision is located between CR#105 and Summit Avenue, approximately 3.7 miles southwest of these wells.  As part of the permit application, the Town submitted the results of a 72-hour pumptest for each well which also monitored 6 off-site private wells as well as the nearby Woodbury Creek during the tests for possible interference.  These tests results concluded that the aquifer can supply these amounts of water without interfering with surrounding private water supply wells and without taking water directly from Woodbury Creek.  
          The wells are located off NYS Route 32 near its intersection with Trout Brook Road (CR #34) in the northern end of the Town of Woodbury, Orange County, NY.

    Algonquin Gas Transmission, LLC proposes the addition of emission Unit T-00004, consisting of a Solar Taurus 60-7800 Compressor Turbine and a solar Taurus 70-10300 Compressor Turbine.  The facility will limit annual NOx emissions from Unit T-00004 to 34.3 tons per year (tpy) to stay below NYCRR Part 231.  The proposed addition will not be subject to PSD review, as the maximum potential to emit (PTE) will be less than 250 tpy for all PSD regulated pollutants.  The Turbines are subject to provisions of 40CFR 60 KKK but not subject to 40CFR 63 YYYY.  Algonquin Gas Transmission, LLC is also proposing to add two exempt activities, a 3.85 MMBtu/hr natural gas fired boiler and 880 HP (NEMA) natural gas fired emergency generator, which will operate less than 500 hours per year.
    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.

    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.
