Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Queens, Queens County


Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a Title V Permit Renewal with modifications for the existing water pollution control plant. Additional plant upgrading design information (Stage I emergency pumping plan) has been developed and includes: overhaul of the existing pump and blower engines; sewage pumps for emergency pumping of dry weather flow in case of failure of the existing pump engines; additional sewage pumps and two engine generators to provide power for emergency pumping of wet weather flow in case of failure of the existing pump engine (Air State Facility permit has been issued for installation and operation).

After completion of the overhaul of the existing engines, the Stage II engine-generators will be utilized as backup power for sewage pump around operation under the plant upgrading contract for replacing the existing engine-coupled main sewage pumps with electrical motor sewage pumps and other upgrading construction if needed. Included will be introduction of Biological Nutrient Removal (BNR) treatment; decommissioning of the existing five pumps and five blower engines and installation of two boilers to compensate for heat lost due to removal of the existing pump and blower engines; installation of one interim boiler in September 2008 to serve heating needs; installation of waste digester gas burner; one emergency engine generator replacement.

Construction equipment includes temporary portable engine power equipment; portable engine generator exhaust will be treated with a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) after-combustion treatment system in order to comply with the Part 227 NOx RACT requirement. Based on information provided by NYCDEP, the USEPA has determined that this facility will not trigger PSD applicability provided permit conditions are met. A contingent interim boiler firing #2 low sulfur diesels may be operated under an operational flexibility requirement, not a permanent unit.

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.
