Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Project Description:

The Department has made a tentative determination to approve an Air State Facility application for an existing facility to replace the current Title V Permit. The 207th Street Overhaul Shop is the inspection, maintenance and repair facility of the subway car fleets which service the Metropolitan Transportation Authority New York City Transit Interborough Rapid Transit Division. This application is to upgrade the existing system. Two existing 29.3 million Btu/hr boilers will be modified for the combustion of #2 fuel oil, instead of #6 fuel oil. The modifications include changing the burners on the boilers and installing new pumps and piping for the storage of #2 fuel oil. These boilers provide process steam and comfort heating. The two exhaust stacks will be reconstructed as part of the boiler modifications. Emissions will include exempt sources at the facility. The previously permitted spray paint booth at the facility is not operational. Facility NOx emissions are limited to 24.9 tons per year. The facility is subject to the provisions of State Facility requirements specified under 6 NYCRR 201-7.

The application, draft permit, relevant supporting materials and regulations are available for review during normal business hours at the DEC office provided in this notice. Comments of support or objection may be made by filing a written statement by the deadline date indicated.

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Manhattan, New York County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a Title V Renewal 2 for a hospital that operates emission sources that include four large size dual fuel (oil and gas) boilers. Also, a minor permit modification was obtained on 6/14/12 for the four large size boilers to upgrade their burners and to switch from #6 fuel oil to #2 fuel oil firing and thus demonstrate compliance with the new 6 NYCRR 227-2 NOx RACT effective July 1, 2014; also included is a flue gas recirculation system. The facility operates eight emergency generators, one water cooling tower, 13 fuel oil storage tanks and fume hoods. The ethylene oxide sterilizers and associated abato were removed on 4/30/11. The four boilers will be operated so that facility-wide NOx emissions will continue to remain under the 173.37 tpy cap, and the facility-wide SO2 emissions will continue to remain under the 140.66 tpy cap.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.7(b)(9) and 201-6.3(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.
