Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Brooklyn, Kings County

Project Description:

The Department has made a tentative determination to approve a Title V Renewal application for an existing facility that consists of two high-pressure steam boilers. One boiler fires natural gas or No. 6 residual oil and the other fires natural gas or No. 2 distillate oil. Two diesel-fired internal combustion engines provide emergency power. The facility supplies domestic hot water, chilled water and electricity to the 8,000 residents of the affiliated Amalgamated Warbasse Housing complex. This application includes the deletion of turbine 2 and turbine 3 (combustion source OCT02 and OCT03) from the 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.

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.ny.gov/chemical/32249.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 determineation 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 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 permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Department web site at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/permits/6234.html.

New York County

Applicant:

NYC Dept of Sanitation
125 Worth St
New York, NY 10013 -4006

Facility:

NYC-DOS East 91ST St Mts
East 91ST St & East River
New York, NY 10028

Application ID:

2-6204-00007/00013

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:

Manhattan, New York County

Project Description:

Construction and operation of a converted marine transfer station (MTS) on the upper east side of Manhattan. 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 East 91st Street MTS is a waste 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 approximately 63,521 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 waterway to allow for barge operations and disturb tidal wetlands for the construction of a new fendering system and over water access ramps to support facility operations. The applicant will mitigate wetland habitat losses by creating and restoring additional tidal wetland areas at other areas within NYC, including other waste management facilities, 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 Air State Facility permit is capping its Oxides of Nitrogen emissions to less than 22.5 tons per 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:

96th Street Regional Library, 112 East 96th Street, NYC and; Manhattan Community Board 8 Office, 505 Park Avenue, NYC.

The site is located in within Manhattan tax block 1587, lot 27 and part of lot 1, East River, FDR, and 91st Street.

Availability of Application Documents:

Filed application documents, and Department draft permits where applicable, are available for inspection under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Law during normal business hours at the address of the contact person.

This project is subject to the Department's Environmental Justice Policy and an enhanced public participation plan has been prepared and accepted as a component of application completeness. As part of the plan, a document repository has been established near the project area that contains application and project related materials. Information on the repository location and other outreach components of the plan is available from the identified DEC contact.
