Application ID:

8-2656-00008/00021

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Wheatland, Monroe County


Project Description:

The Department has received an application from Waste Management of New York, LLC to establish certified Emission Reduction Credits (ERCs) in accordance with 6 NYCRR Part 231 New Source Review in Ozone Transport Regions. These ERCs are based on the permanent shutdown, effective January 1, 2001, of Engine #1 at the Monroe Livingston Landfill and Recycling Center located at 1241 South Road in the Town of Wheatland and surrendering the certificate to operate this unit.
The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to approve a total of 11 tons per year of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and 3.48 tons per year of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) ERCs for past emission reductions at the facility. As stated above, the reductions are a result of permanently shutting down Engine 1 and surrendering the certificate to operate the unit. All of these ERCs will be available to Monroe-Livingston Landfill to sell or otherwise use in the ozone transport region.
The emission sources at this closed landfill now include 3 internal combustion engines, a skid mounted flare and fugitive emissions from the landfill. The facility is subject to Title V permitting due to the facility's potential to emit carbon monoxide (CO) emissions exceeding the major source threshold of 100 tons per year of a regulated contaminant.

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.

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. 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. Comments and requests for a public hearing should be in writing and addressed to the Department representative listed below. 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.

Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Geneva, Ontario County


Project Description:

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) is pursuing a Department Initiated Modification (DIM) to the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Permit (NY 002-7049, DEC Identification #: 8-3205-00008/00001), the City of Geneva Marsh Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 750-1.18, New York State's Environmental Benefit Permit Strategy (EBPS).

The Marsh Creek Wastewater Treatment Facility (WWTF) is a secondary treatment facility located in the City of Geneva. The facility receives and treats domestic and industrial wastewater, and the design flow is 4.0 MGD, and the peak flow is 10.0 MGD. As a result of permittee-initated revision, a revised permit was issued in November 2007.

The changes to the permit are as follows:

The water quality review considered the ongoing outfall diffuser construction that includes 10 ports at 10 inches diameter. This design allows for improved dilution of an approximate 30:1 ratio at the new flow of 6 MGD. Based on the improved mixing and dilution and in accordance with 40 CFR 122.44(i), the effluent Total Residual Chlorine was increased from 0.25 mg/l to 0.7 mg/l. The permit will continue with the existing BOD5 and TSS limits at the secondary treatment level of 30/45 mg/l as in the current permit; ammonia effluent limit is not necessary per the outfall design and the 30:1 dilution ratio; phosphorus limit of 1 mg/l. It is anticipated that Geneva's phosphorus loading to the lake will remain constant or even be reduced as SSO's will be eliminated and/or treated at the STP. The use of the Actiflo Process is expected to improve phosphorus removal efficiency.

The modification also includes several other minor reporting modifications. The City of Geneva Marsh Creek Wasteawater Treatment Plant has surface discharge into the following: Outfall 001 discharges into Seneca Lake, a class B(T) water. Outfall 002 discharges into Marsh Creek, a class C water.

Additional information including the current permit, renewal applications, and supporting documentation may be obtained from or inspected at the DEC central office in Albany. Substantive comments on the permit or requests for hearing or both must be submitted in writing to the contact person. DEC seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision on permit issuance.

Filed application documents, and Department draft permits where applicable, are available for inspection during normal business hours at the address of the contact person. To ensure timely service at the time of inspection, it is recommended that an appointment be made with the contact person.

Applicant:

Dominion Transmission Inc

Clarksburg, WV 26302 -2450

Facility:

Woodhull Station

Application ID:

8-4682-00006/00034

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Woodhull, Steuben County


Project Description:

Dominion Transmission Inc has submitted an application for modification of its current Title V Facility Permit for its Woodhull Compressor Station, located at 974 County Road 99 in the Town of Woodhull. The facility compresses natural gas for transport through transmission pipelines. Facility Emission Units are: 0-0000A, a 1100 horsepower natural gas fired compressor engine; 0-0000B, five 2000 horsepower natural gas fired compressor engines; 0-0000C, a 27.5 million BTU per hour natural gas fired boiler; and 0-0000D, an 814 horsepower natural gas fired generator.

The Title V Facility Permit, originally issued September 23, 1998, was renewed December 12, 2003, and was administratively amended (Mod 1) January 7, 2004 to correct reporting deadlines. A major modification to the Permit (Mod 2) was issued January 25, 2005, for compressor engine retrofitting with control equipment to meet the 1.5 gram of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) per brake horsepower-hour standard in 6NYCRR Part 227-2 Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) for NOx, which became effective April 1, 2005. The Permit was then administratively amended (Mod 3) March 4, 2005 to correct Compliance Plan stack testing dates.
The current application for modification (Mod 4) is to authorize an increase in facility capacity by the addition of Emission Unit 0-0000E, two 1800 horsepower reciprocating compressor engines. These are rebuilt natural gas fired 2 stroke lean burn units being moved from another Dominion facility. Project emission potentials for the addition of these engines are below the thresholds for significant emission increases in 40 CFR 52.21 Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) of 100 tons per year of carbon monoxide (CO), 40 tons per year of NOx, and 15 tons per year of particulate matter (PM). Project emission potentials are also below significant emission increase thresholds in 6 NYCRR Part 231 New Source Review (NSR) in Ozone Transport Regions, of 40 tons per year each of NOx and volatile organic compounds (VOC). Both engines will also meet the Part 227-2 RACT standard for NOx emissions applicable to the other engines as indicated above.

The facility will remain subject to Part 201-6 (Title V) for major stationary sources due to potential facility wide emissions of VOC, CO, and NOx in excess of 100 tons per year each, and potential emissions of formaldehyde, a hazardous air pollutant, in excess of 10 tons per year.

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.

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. 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.
