Society of New York Hospital
525 East 68TH St
New York, NY 10021 -4873

Facility:

NY - Presbyterian HOSPITAL-525 E 68TH St
525 East 68TH St
New York, NY 10021

Application ID:

2-6204-00064/00005

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Manhattan, New York County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a Draft Permit and has made a tentative determination to approve this application. This Title V Permit renewal is for the hospital's downtown campus which operates emission sources including four boilers, two ethylene oxide sterilizers and one abator unit. The hospital is planning to install a new turbine and duct burner both capable of firing natural gas. This permit will allow the construction of the new Cogen plant and renewal of the Title V permit.The maximum annual potential of the facility would be less than the existing by limiting the fuel usage; therefore, Part 231 is not applicable. The facility is also capping out of PSD applicability by keeping net emissions increase below the PSD threshold from the new sources.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.7(b)(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.

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility
Article 25 Tidal Wetlands
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification
Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management

Project is Located:

Queens, Queens County

Project Description:

Construction and operation of a converted marine transfer station (MTS) in the College Point section of Queens. The proposed facility is designed to process 4,290 tons per day of municipal solid waste (MSW), allowing for 5,280 tons per day of MSW during emergency conditions. The North Shore MTS is an over the water processing facility, one of four proposed waste management facilities identified as part of NYC Solid Waste Management Plan - NYC Department of Sanitation long term waste export program. The existing marine transfer station will be demolished and the proposed containerized waste management facility, with a foot print of 40,843 square feet, will be built to provide for barge transport of MSW to out of NYC locations. All solid waste transfer and containerized activities will take place within the fully enclosed building.

In addition to the construction of a new facility building, the applicant proposes to dredge the adjacent waterways to allow for barge operations and disturb tidal wetlands for the construction of a new pier structure, fendering system and retaining wall to support facility operations. The applicant will mitigate wetland habitat losses by creating and restoring additional tidal wetland areas at other waste management facilities in NYC, at a ratio of no less than 2 times the combined wetland area lost for the proposed four converted MTS facilities.

The facility is subject to the provisions of the state facility regulations found at 6 NYCRR Sec. 201-7.2. The facility has potential emissions from exempt combustion sources and trivial activities and by the draft State Facility Permit is capping it Oxides of Nitrogen emissions to less than 22.5 tons per 12 year. The draft Air State Facility permit contains a listing of applicable federal, state and compliance monitoring requirements for the facility.

A draft permit has been prepared and is available for inspection at the document repositories established for this project:

  • Mitchell-Linden Public Library, 29-42 Union Street, Flushing, NY and;
