Good Samaritan Hospital

Application ID:

3-3926-00041/00005

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Ramapo, Rockland County


Project Description:

The Department has prepared a Draft Title V Permit modification for Good Samaritan Hospital pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law and Title V of the Federal Clean Air Act Amendments. This facility is located in Suffern, Rockland County.

This permit modification is for de-rating the hospital's existing three, identical, dual fuel Cleaver Brooks boilers, each rated at 33.5 MMBtu/hr, to a maximum firing rate of 24.9 MMBtu/hr. The boilers fire natural gas and No.4 fuel oil as a secondary fuel with flue gases exiting via a common stack. To de-rate the boilers, the hospital plans to make permanent changes to each boiler in order to achieve a maximum firing rate of 24.9 MMBtu/hr. By limiting and capping each boiler fuel flow rate to a maximum heat input equal to or less than 25 MMBtu/hr, the hospital will comply with 6 NYCRR Subpart 227-2 Reasonably Available Control Technology for Major Facilities of Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx RACT) boiler tune-up requirements for small boilers rather than the emission limits for mid-size boilers.

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 comments received on it to determine whether to hold a public hearing. Comments and requests for a Legislative 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
