Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Queens, Queens County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a Title V Renewal permit for a facility that operates boilers on a college campus which supply steam and space heating for the buildings and dormitories. The steam is produced by stationary combustion installations/boilers with maximum rated heat input capacities ranging from 9.87-23.5 mmBtu/hr. The boilers are all capable of firing either distillate oil or natural gas. Two boilers, emission sources B0012 and B0013 are now derated in this renewal by fuel restriction from 29.5 to 23.5 mmbtu/hr heat input. The derating makes these boilers small boilers instead of mid-size boilers. The Subpart 227-2 NOx RACT requirement for small boilers is to conduct an annual tune up. The facility operates other sources throughout the campus which are considered exempt from permitting in accordance with 6 NYCRR 201-3.2(c), including space heaters, diesel fired emergency generators, fuel oil storage tanks, natural gas-fired HVAC units and laboratory ventilation hoods.

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.

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.

Availability of Application Documents:

Filed application documents, and Department draft permits where applicable, are available for inspection during normal business hours at the address of the contact person. To ensure timely service at the time of inspection, it is recommended that an appointment be made with the contact person.
