Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Article 19 Title IV (Phase II Acid Rain)

Project is Located:

Dewitt, Onondaga County


Project Description:

Carr Street Generating Station consists of two GE LM-6000 stationary gas turbines. The turbines fire either natural gas or number 2 fuel oil. Emissions of NOx from each unit are controlled with water injection and an SCR.

This permit action will renew the existing Title V operating permit as well as authorize the use of biodiesel (in addition to No. 2 oil or natural gas). The gas turbines are subject to the federal Standards of Performance for New Stationary Sources found at 40 CFR Part 60, Subpart GG; DEC's Clean Air Interstate Rules for the ozone season and annual NOx Budget programs and annual SO2 program; the DEC's CO2 budget regulation, 6 NYCRR Part 242; and numerous permit conditions. Continuous emissions monitors are used to demonstrate compliance with the NOx and CO permit limits. Carr Street is also subject to the EPA's Acid Rain Program (Title IV of the Clean Air Act) and is required to obtain a Title IV permit. This permit action also includes the renewal of the Title IV permit.

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.

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 requester 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.
