The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a Title V Renewal 3 for an existing medical center.

Per 6NYCRR 225-1.2 restricts the sulfur content of distillate fuel oil utilized to 0.0015% by weight or less.

Emission Sources S0003 & S0008 in Emission Unit U-00001 are subject to Federal Clean Air Act Part 60 Subpart A for notification and recordkeeping and Subpart Dc for 40CFR60-Dc.40c and 40CFR60-Dc.48c(a). Emission Sources S0003 & S0008 are subject to the NOxRACT of 6NYCRR 227-2.4(c)(1)(ii) are required to meet the NOx emission limit of 0.20 pounds NOx per million Btus on or after July 1, 2014, may commit to burning a cleaner fuel between May 1st and September 30th of each year. Fuel switching must result in quantifiable annual NOx emissions equal to or less than the NOx emissions expected if the emission source complied with the applicable presumptive RACT emission limits set forth in 6 NYCRR 227-2.4(c)(1)(ii) of 0.20 pounds NOx per million Btus rather than 0.08 pounds per million Btu per hour on or after July 1, 2014. All 6 existing emergency generators are Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines and are not subject to 40CFR60 Subpart IIII - Standards of Performance for Stationary Compression Ignition Internal Combustion Engines or subject to 40CFR63 Subpart ZZZZ - National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Stationary Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines.

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.

Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 15 Title 15 Water Withdrawal Non-public

Project is Located:

Staten Island, Richmond County

Project Description:

The applicant has applied for an initial permit for the continued withdrawal of 1,145 gallons per minute of water from on-site wells and an irrigation pond for golf course irrigation. The facility has been in operation in its current configuration since the year 2000. No changes in current operations from recent years are proposed.

The Department has determined that the Facility is eligible for an Initial Permit under Section 15-1501.9 of the Environmental Conservation Law. Initial Permits are limited to existing facilities for existing water withdrawals over 100,000 gallons per day which were properly reported to the Department prior to February 15, 2012. Section 15-501.9 requires the Department to issue Initial Water Withdrawal Permits for the reported volume.

The Department has determined that the issuance of "initial permits" under ECL section 15-501.9 as implemented by 6 NYCRR 601.7 is a ministerial action and therefore subject to the Type II exemption set out in 6 NYCRR 617.5(c)(19).

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.
