ENB Region 2 Completed Applications 03/23/2016

Kings County

Applicant:

NYC Dept of Environmental Protection
96-05 Horace Harding Expy Fl 5
Corona, NY 11368

Facility:

26th Ward Wastewater Treatment Plant
122-68 Flatlands Ave
Brooklyn, NY 12207

Application ID:

2-6105-00009/02003

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Brooklyn, Kings County

Project Description:

The Department has made a tentative determination to approve an Air State Facility (ASF) renewal for an existing municipal wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) capable of providing treatment for 85 mgd of primarily residential wastewater. There is a sludge dewatering facility associated with the WWTP.

This application proposes the following modifications: (1) The current permit includes construction under Emission Unit 1-Combu for the installation of three 2500 KW medium speed diesel emergency generators and one 600 KW black start diesel generator to replace the two old emergency turbine generators and two old black start generators. During the construction period, six interim 1000 KW rental engine generators were installed to provide emergency power to the WWTP if there was an emergency power situation. Construction of the replacement emergency generators has been completed and the six interim units were removed from the WWTP. Therefore, the interim units are proposed to be removed from the permit. (2) The current permit includes a pump around operation under Emission Unit 1-Combu to use exempt <200 HP diesel engines. The pump around operation design now requires the provision of six (6) Godwin Model NC350/CD400M 302 HP Critically Silenced Diesel Pump-sets, three are driven by Caterpillar 2010 Model Year engines, two are driven by Caterpillar 2008 Model Year engines, and one is driven by John Deere 2011 Model Year engine. This pump around operation is anticipated to run for a combined total of 20 days.

After reviewing available emission specifications, the provisions 6NYCRR Part 201, and the facility's operating information, NYCDEP has determined that these activities noted above will not affect the WWTP's qualification for a Part 201 ASF Permit. Facility emissions are limited to 24.9 tons/yr Total HAPs, VOCs and NOx. Records demonstrating compliance with this cap will be kept in accordance with the permit specific conditions. The facility is subject to the provisions of ASF requirements specified under 6NYCRR 201-7. The draft permit contains a listing of the applicable federal, state, and compliance monitoring requirements for the facility.

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. DEC may schedule a public hearing based upon an evaluation of the nature and scope of any written objections raised.
