Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Article 15 Title 5 Stream Disturbance

Project is Located:

Caledonia, Livingston County

Project Description:

The Department has made a tentative determination to issue Article 24 Freshwater Wetland and Article 15 Protection of Waters permits to authorize the construction of a new collection structure and outfall at the Department's Caledonia Fish Hatchery due to upgrades at the facility's wastewater treatment facility which include combining all flows from the facility into a collection structure to obtain a representative sample, pursuant to the recent SPDES permit modification. The new structures will require disturbance in regulated freshwater wetland CA-1 and in the banks of Spring Creek [Class C(TS) for trout spawning]. As a tentative determination the Department seeks comments prior to making a final decision.

Monroe County

Applicant:

RED-Rochester LLC
640 Quail Ridge Dr
Westmont, IL 60559

Facility:

RED-Rochester LLC at Eastman Business Park
Eastman Business Park Utilities, Water, Power, Wastewater
Rochester, NY 14650 -0001

Application ID:

8-2699-00126/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Rochester, Monroe County

Project Description:

The Department has received an application from RED-Rochester LLC for modification of its Title V Facility Permit for utility operations, which include coal, oil and proposed natural gas fired boilers producing steam and electrical power for commercial customers in Eastman Business Park. Other RED operations include wastewater treatment operations, wastewater sludge incineration, solvent based metal part cleaning operations, and emergency power generator operations. RED's operations occur in 7 buildings in Eastman Business Park, Buildings 31, 321, M90, 95, 91, R16, and 96. RED's emergency generating operations occur throughout Eastman Business Park.

Modifications to this Title V Permit address only combustion operations covered in Emission Unit 15 of the permit. No changes are proposed for other emission units at the facility.

With this application for modification, RED-Rochester LLC seeks authorization for conversion of Building 321 #44 coal fired boiler to natural gas, decommission of boiler #42 and #43, Building 31 use of four existing package boilers as limited use and new building 371 installation of 3 new High Pressure Boilers, installation of one Medium Pressure dual fuel boiler, installation of one used natural gas turbine/HRSG with some #2 fuel oil backup.

The Title V permit issued 9-11-2015 included two scenarios for the conversion of the facilities coal fired boilers to natural gas. The application for permit modification provided the Department with a final scenario including information that was not available when the original Scenario 1 and Scenario 2 were developed. Based on the new and updated information provided a final scenario has been prepared and included in the draft permit modification.

The final scenario includes the construction of building 371 which will house the following equipment: three new high pressure boilers rated at 370 mmbtu/hr., one new dual fuel medium pressure boiler rated at 264 mmbtu/hr. operating on natural gas or back up No. 2 fuel, and one used natural gas turbine rated at 50 megawatt with a Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG) rated at 352 mmbtu/hr. Boilers #42, #43 and #44 are housed in building 321. Boilers #42 and #43 are scheduled for shut down and decommissioning. Boiler #44 will be converted to natural gas operation with No. 2 oil back up and is rated at 694 mmbtu/hr. on natural gas and 670 mmbtu/hr. on No. 2 oil. Four package boilers are located in building 31 which operate on No. 6 oil. These boilers will only be operated as limited use boilers.

With the conversion of the powerhouse to natural gas, RED is establishing Emission Reduction Credits (ERCs) based on the permanent shutdown of Boiler #41 (ES 321AG) in December 2013, and the proposed shutdown of Boilers #42 (ES 321AH) and Boiler #43 (ES 321AI) in March 2018. The total ERCs resulting from these shut downs are as follows: NOx: 567.6 tons per year (tpy); PM2.5: 570.7 tpy; PM10: 719.2 tpy; PM: 870.6 tpy; CO: 108.6 tpy; VOC: 18.1 tpy.

Under the powerhouse conversion project, RED will use a portion of the ERCs established to offset the potential emission increases, thereby ensuring that the net emissions remain below New Source Review thresholds. The following ERCs will be used for this project: NOx: 559.6 tpy; PM2.5: 412.3 tpy; PM10: 399.6 tpy; PM: 384.0 tpy; CO: 108.6 tpy VOC: 3.5 tpy.

The Department has made a tentative determination to issue the Draft as a Final Permit, if comments received do not raise significant issues that must be addressed before a permit can be issued.

The application and Draft Permit are available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office. The Draft Title V Facility Permit and Permit Review Report may be viewed or downloaded as PDF files at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/dardata/boss/afs/draft_atv.html

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.
