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 renewal of its current Title V Facility Permit for its Woodhull Compressor Station, located at 974 County Route 99 in the Town of Woodhull. The facility compresses natural gas for transport through transmission pipelines. Facility Emission Units include five 2000 horsepower, one 1100 horsepower, and two 1800 horsepower reciprocating natural gas fired compressor engines, a 27.5 million BTU per hour natural gas fired boiler, and an 814 horsepower natural gas fired generator.

The Title V Facility Permit, originally issued in 1998, was renewed December 12, 2003. Modifications authorized subsequently and reflected in the current Permit include the addition of engine emission control equipment to meet current Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) standards for oxides of nitrogen (NOx), and an increase in compression capacity by the addition of two rebuilt natural gas fired 2 stroke lean burn 1800 horsepower reciprocating compressor engines moved from another Dominion facility.

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.

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a renewed Title V Facility Permit.

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.
