Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Bronx, Bronx County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue an Air State Facility (ASF) permit for an existing permitted Air Title V (ATV) residential apartment complex. The Title V permit (DEC ID#2-6001-00031/00004) will be relinquished and discontinued upon ASF issuance. The facility has three boilers for heating: two 32.8 mmbtu/hr boilers exhausting through one stack and one 50.2 mmbtu/hr boiler exhausting through a second stack. All boilers burn natural gas with No.4 fuel oil as backup. With this application facility proposes downgrade from an ATV to an ASF by capping the facility wide total nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions below 25 tons/yr. The facility's NOx emissions are limited to 24.9 tons/yr.

The facility is subject to the provisions of State Facility requirements specified under 6 NYCRR 201-7. The Air State Facility 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.
