Roseton Generating LLC

Houston, TX 77002

Facility:

Roseton Generating Station
992 River Rd
Newburgh, NY 12550

Application ID:

3-3346-00075/00008

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Newburgh, Orange County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue an Air Title V permit renewal for the Roseton Generating Station located in Newburgh, Orange County.

Roseton operates two Combustion Engineering, tangentially-fired, steam generating boilers, each rated at 600 MW. Both units are capable of firing No. 6 fuel oil and natural gas as primary fuels. In addition, both units are capable of firing natural gas or No. 2 fuel oil as their ignition fuel during warm-up. The facility also operates one 32.7 MMBtu/hr natural gas-fired auxiliary boiler that supplies steam heating to various on-site buildings, tanks and fuel oil lines. Two emergency diesel generators sized at 850 hp and 300 hp are also located on-site. Roseton is considered a major facility and is therefore subject to the provisions of Title V specified under 6 NYCRR subpart 201-6.

This permit renewal will be submitted to the USEPA for approval as a revision to the State Implementation Plan (SIP). One of the main changes to the permit is the averaging period of the NOx BART limit of 0.2 lb/MMBtu for Units 1 and 2. This limit has been revised from an annual average to a 24-hour average during the ozone season, and a 30-day average during the non-ozone season. These new averaging times align with the BART limit that was approved by EPA on August 28th, 2012. The permit's NOx RACT conditions have also been revised to match the presumptive limit of 6 NYCRR Part 227-2.

All conditions involving Emission Unit R-0000A have been removed. This auxiliary boiler was replaced by the new boiler, R-0000B, in 2014. Sulfur content limits for No. 6 fuel oil and diesel fuel have been updated and added to the permit under 6 NYCRR Part 225-1.2. The CAIR requirements under 6 NYCRR Parts 243, 244, and 245 have been removed and replaced with CSAPR rules under 40 CFR Part 97, Subparts AAAAA, BBBBB and CCCCC. Additional conditions under the following NSPS and NESHAP regulation subparts have also been added to the permit: 40 CFR 60 ZZZZ, 40 CFR 63 DDDDD and 40 CFR 63 UUUUU.

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.

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 P/C/I SPDES- Groundwater Discharge

Project is Located:

North Salem, Westchester County

Project Description:

The Department has made a tentative determination to approve this application for re-issuance of a SPDES permit (#NY 0274763) to allow an existing subsurface discharge (Outfall No. 001) of 14,200 gallons per day (gpd) of treated sanitary wastewater from the Bridleside Apartments residential complex.
