Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Leyden, Multiple Counties

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination, subject to public comment or other information, to approve a permit Renewal to operate air pollution sources and has drafted pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the Environmental Conservation Law, a State Facility Permit, for the facility that is now located at "Barrett Paving Materials - Boonville Quarry", Town of Leyden in Lewis County in New York State. The exact location is at the county line on State Route 12 in Boonville NY 13309. This facility is engaged in the quarrying, crushing and screening of limestone as well as the preparation of hot mix asphalt. The asphalt is formulated in a 240 ton/hour batch plant. The Standard Industrial Classification representative of this facility is 1422 (Crushed and Broken Limestone) and 2951 (Paving Blocks and Mixtures). With respect to air pollution regulation, the activities of concern at Barrett Boonville are limestone particulate matter which elutes from limestone handling activities and also oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and carbon monoxide (CO) which elute from the combustion of waste fuel. A baghouse has been installed on the HMA plant to control the particulate emissions. The facility has elected to cap CO, NOx and PM-10 emissions below Major Source Thresholds. The facility also has elected to cap the production of finished asphalt to avoid the impact of 6 NYCRR 212-2.1(a).

The draft permit with all conditions is available for review in the Region 6 NYSDEC sub-office in Utica, NY.
