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 issue a new State Facility Permit for the construction and operation of the Metro-North Commuter Railroad Company's Harmon Yard.

The Metro-North Railroad Harmon Yard is used for the maintenance of equipment utilized by Metro-North Railroad. This permit will allow the facility to maintain several combustion sources. These sources will have annual fuel usage limits as follows:

c) 100,000 gallons of waste oil or less in uncontrolled waste oil combustion equipment (process W01); and,
d) 30 million cubic feet per year of natural gas in exempt combustion sources.

The above fuel limitations allow the facility to cap out of regulations pertaining to Title V, New Source Review and Prevention of Significant Deterioration Act.

Applicable State regulations include 6NYCRR Parts 201-5, 201-7, 211, 212, 225-2, 230 and Applicable Federal regulations include 40CFR 60 Part A.

By acceptance of this permit, the permittee agrees that the permit is contingent upon strict compliance with the ECL, all applicable regulations, the General Conditions specified and any Special Conditions included as part of this permit.

Application ID:

3-5538-00149/00002

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

North Castle, Westchester County


Project Description:

The Department of Environmental Conservation has tentatively determined to issue a modified State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) permit to NYCDEP for the above-referenced facility upon the request of the permittee and pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 750-1.18. The permittee requested that the current monitoring requirements for Flow and Dissolved Oxygen be modified, and that a limit for Phosphorous be added to the permit.

NYCDEP submitted a permit modification request asking that flow and dissolved oxygen monitoring be changed to require that daily samples only be necessary during periods when chlorination and dechlorination treatments take place. The permittee also requested authorization for the use of a continuous monitor for dissolved oxygen, rather than grab samples, provided grab sampling be used to monitor dissolved oxygen in the event of a malfunction of the continuous monitor. Additionally, the permittee requested that a limit of 36.4 kg/l for phosphorous be included in the current permit, that this limit be calculated as a 12-month rolling average, and that monitoring for this parameter be weekly.

Dechlorination of the drinking water from Rondout Reservoir or West Branch Reservoir is performed at Shaft 17 by application of sodium hydroxide following the chlorination process at the Chelsea Pump Station/ Rondout Effluent Chamber. Dechlorination is performed to reduce Total Residual Chlorine (TRC) content of chlorinated water in order to meet permit limits. The discharge from Shaft 17 is currently required to be monitored for TRC each day during the period when disinfection takes place, plus a week following the end of the chlorination/dechlorination period.

Discharged water is also monitored for flow and dissolved oxygen continually, even at times when no chlorination/dechlorination takes place. This is because excessive application of sodium hydroxide can negatively impact dissolved oxygen levels in water. Dissolved oxygen levels are monitored to ensure this discharge does not cause an exceedance of water quality standards for dissolved oxygen in the receiving water. Monitoring dissolved oxygen with a continuous monitor will provide more accurate results than the grab sampling method, as it measures instantaneously, therefore the proposal to use a continuous monitor is acceptable to the Department.

The Bureau of Water Quality (BWQ) evaluated the request for including a Phosphorous limit of 27.5 kg/day in the permit. The waste load allocation set forth in the Phase II Phosphorous Total Maximum Daily Loads for Reservoirs in The New York City Water Supply Watershed (Delaware, Duchess, Greene, Putnam, Schoharie, Sullivan, Ulster, and Westchester Countries) - June 2000 was reviewed. According to the BWQ, a maximum phosphorous discharge of 49.0 kg/day is allowed to discharge from Shaft 17 into Kensico Reservoir. The Department has, therefore, included the requested phosphorous limit of 36.4 kg/day in the permit as the permittee's proposal is more conservative than BWQ?s finding.

This draft permit has been modified from the existing SPDES Permit in the following ways:


Draft Permit Pages

Permit pages and conditions have been renumbered and reordered.

Draft Permit Limits, Levels and Monitoring
The footnotes for the Permit Limits, Levels and Monitoring pages have been updated and reordered.

Outfall 001

Total Phosphorous: A water quality based effluent limit of 36.4 kg/day has been included in the permit, based on the "Phase II Phosphorous Total Maximum Daily Loads For Reservoirs in The New York City Water Supply Watershed (Delaware, Duchess, Greene, Putnam, Schoharie, Sullivan, Ulster, and Westchester Countries) - June 2000."

Dissolved Oxygen and Flow
: Monitoring requirements of Dissolved Oxygen and Flow have been changed. The draft permit requires that Dissolved Oxygen and Flow be monitored daily only in the period when chlorination and dechlorination takes place and for one week following the end of treatment. Continuous Monitor may be used for Dissolved Oxygen monitoring, however, grab sample must be used to monitor Dissolved Oxygen in the event of a continuous monitor malfunction.
