Application ID:

8-3205-00008/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 15 Title 5 Excavation & Fill in Navigable Waters
Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Geneva, Ontario County

Project Description:

The Department has made a tentative determination to issue a SPDES permit modification to an existing permit issued to the City of Geneva for the Marsh Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) which treats domestic and industrial wastewater and discharges treated effluent to outfall 001 in Seneca Lake. The facility was required to address high wet weather flows by constructing WWTF plant improvements including the construction of a new Excess Flow Treatment Facility on the Gulvin Park Pump Station Site to treat up to 22.5 MGD of wet weather flows and 12 MGD of dry weather flows (and associated sewer bypass), the installation of an Actiflo system (a high rate chemical treatment process), the elimination of sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs), and the construction of a new diffuser outfall to handle higher flows. The Department has determined that that the permit must be modified and has prepared a draft permit with the following additions:1) maximum monthly flow increase for outfall 001 from 4 to 6 MGD, 2) a peak hydraulic flow increase from 10 to 12 MGD, 3) increased loading rates for Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD5) and Total Suspended Solids (TSS), 4) a lower limit for mercury of 200 ng/L with the requirement for a Pollution Minimization Plan (PMP), 5) addition of the new outfall 002 on Marsh Creek for wet weather flows over 12 MGD and up to 22.5 MGD from the Excess Flow Treatment Facility, 6) updated definitions, monitoring, and Discharge Notification Act requirements, and 7) other administrative changes. The addition of a diffuser to Outfall 001 to provide better mixing with the receiving water; this construction in the bed and banks of Seneca Lake (outfall 001) requires an Excavation and Fill permit. The PMP for mercury will include dental and photo processing best management practices and other source reductions. As a tentative determination, the Department seeks comments prior to making a final decision. The file is available for review and comment at NYSDEC Region 8. Note: Although the SEQR Determination listed below indicates that the Action was Unlisted, portions of the project were Type II Actions because they were under a Department Order on Consent.

Yates County

Applicant:

Aes Eastern Energy LP
130 E Seneca St - Ste 505
Ithaca, NY 14850

Facility:

Aes Greenidge LLC
590 Plant Rd
Dresden, NY 14441

Application ID:

8-5736-00004/00013

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Article 19 Title IV (Phase II Acid Rain)

Project is Located:

Torrey, Yates County

Project Description:

In response to an application submitted by AES Greenidge LLC, for renewal and modification of its Title V and Title IV (Acid Rain) Facility Permit, the Department has prepared a Draft Title V and Title IV (Acid Rain) Facility Permit for the AES Greenidge Electric Generating Station.

AES Greenidge is a Major Stationary Source, and is required to obtain a Title V Permit as specified in 6 NYCRR Part 201-6, due to potential emissions in excess of Part 201-6 (Title V) thresholds of: 100 tons per year each of particulate matter smaller than 10 microns (PM-10), total particulates (PM), sulfur dioxide (SO2), oxides of nitrogen (NOx), and carbon monoxide (CO); and 25 tons per year of hazardous air pollutants (HAP).

The Title V Facility Permit was originally issued September 7, 2001. The Title IV Facility Permit was issued effective January 1, 2000, expiring December 31, 2004, and was modified September 7, 2001 to change its permit term to coincide with the permit term of the Title V Permit.

AES Greenidge includes three emission units, two electric generating units, G-00003 and G-00004, and one coal handling system unit, G-00005. G-00003 includes two 380 million BTU per hour dry bottom wall-fired pulverized coal boilers venting through a common stack. G-00004 is a dry bottom 1,117 million BTU per hour tangentially-fired pulverized coal boiler venting through a separate stack. All three boilers burn bituminous coal as their primary fuel, with untreated wood, waste wood product from a furniture manufacturer, #2 fuel oil, diesel oil, waste oil, and natural gas also permitted.

The modified Draft Title V and Title IV Permits reflect the addition of a multi-pollutant control system to G-00004, and the restriction of the G-00003 boilers to 1400 hours of operation per year during calendar years 2007, 2008, and 2009 under terms of a Consent Order. G-00004 will be equipped with selective catalytic reduction (SCR) and selective non-catalytic reduction (SNCR) equipment to reduce NOx emissions, activated carbon injection to reduce mercury emissions, and a spray dry reactor and baghouse to control sulfur dioxide and particulate emissions. Particulate emissions from G-00004 were previously controlled by an electrostatic precipitator (ESP), which remains the control method for G-00003.

G-00005 coal handling operations at the facility will remain unchanged.

Facility potentials to emit will be decreased by facility modifications. The Consent Order also specifies that G-00003 boilers must have Best Available Control Technology (BACT) emission controls installed, be repowered (use another fuel, and not use coal), or cease operations by December 31, 2009.

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 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.ny.gov/permits/6234.html.


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.
