Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Bronx, Bronx County

Project Description:

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. This application is for a Title V Renewal. The facility compresses natural gas and presently operates one 37 mmbtu/hr combustion turbine. The heater building has two 26 mmBtu/hr natural gas-fired water bath heaters and a gas-fired emergency generator. The heaters are equipped with low NOx combustion. The facility is major based on its potential to emit NOx emissions

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.

Facility:

NYC-DOS Hamilton Avenue Mts
Hamilton Ave & Gowanus Canal
Brooklyn, NY 11232

Application ID:

2-6102-00010/00013

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:

Brooklyn, Kings County

Project Description:

Construction and operation of a converted marine transfer station (MTS) in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn. 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 Hamilton Avenue MTS is 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 63,305 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 bulkhead reconstruction and to remove the existing over-water ramp and platform. 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, 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:

  • Sunset Park Library, 5108 4th Avenue, Brooklyn and;
  • Brooklyn Community Board 7 Office, 4201 4th Avenue, Brooklyn

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Queens, Queens County

Project Description:

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. This application is for a Title V modification of the Renewal 1 to include two cogeneration units, one generator with dual function as an emergency generator and as an assist to the cogeneration units and an emergency generator not previously permitted. The facility operates three boilers each with heat input capacity of 66.4 mmbtu/hr burning natural gas and #2 oil, two cogeneration units each with heat input capacity of 12.219 mmbtu/hr burning natural gas and eight emergency generators burning #2 oil, and three exempt boilers each with maximum heat input of 6.3 MMBTU/hr. NOx emissions for the facility are capped to less than 43.9 tpy on a 12-month rolling period basis to avoid New Source Review applicability under 6 NYCRR Subpart 231-2. This is a major facility since the facility-wide NOx emissions are greater than 25 tpy and is subject to Part 201-6 requirements.

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.
