Application ID:

7-3134-00022/00011

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Lafayette, Onondaga County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a Draft Permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) and Title V of the Federal Clean Air Act Amendments and made a tentative determination to approve this modification application for the Applicant's facility.

Tennessee Gas Station 241 owns and operates a natural gas compressor station located at 3447 Sentinel Heights Road, in the Town of Lafayette. The station consists of three existing engines, and the DEC recently issued to Tennessee Gas a permit authorizing the construction and operation of two new engines. This action revises certain monitoring requirements in that permit.

A Title V renewal permit was issued on September 29, 2006. That permit contained various conditions to implement Nox RACT and to authorize construction of two new engines. This modification to that permit renewal substantively modifies two conditions. The first, Condition 33, required that ignition timing be monitored continuously for all engines. The Nox RACT Plan approved by the DEC proposed monitoring ignition timing only during the engine analysis, which occurs once every 2500 hours but not less than once a permit term. Because the existing units are not set up for continuous monitoring of ignition timing, the condition is being modified to require continuous monitoring only on the new engines.

The second revision deals with Condition 49. That condition requires emission testing using EPA Method 7E once a year. However, emissions monitoring is also required once a year in a different condition, using ASTM D6522. The intent was to use Method 7E once a permit term. Accordingly, this condition is being changed to require Method 7E once a permit term.

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.

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Owego, Tioga County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a Draft Permit and has made a tentative determination to approve this application.

p

Lockheed Martin System's Integration in Owego, NY makes electrical components such as printed circuit boards; equipment for the US Post Office and aviation components. The facility uses process steam throughout its plant; this steam is produced by a central heating plant which consists of three boilers (two at 57 mmBtu/hr and one at 32 mmBtu/hr). Lockheed has submitted an application to construct two 29 mmBtu/hr wood fired boilers. The DEC is proposing to approve that application, contingent on conditions in an air permit.

The facility will remain capped at below major source thresholds. Additionally, the wood fired boilers will be limited to 14.9 tons of fine particulate matter (PM2.5) per year. In the event that Lockheed violates that emissions cap it will be required to install an electrostatic precipitator. Stack opacity will be monitored with a continuous opacity monitor.
