Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Title IV (Phase II Acid Rain)

Project is Located:

Dover, Dutchess County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a renewal of the Title IV permit for the Cricket Valley Energy Center (CVE), a combined cycle natural gas powered 1,000 megawatt (MW) electric generating facility and interconnection substation. The CVE facility will be comprised of three combined-cycle units, each consisting of a combustion turbine generator (CTG), a Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG) with supplemental duct firing, and a steam turbine generator (STG). Auxiliary equipment will include a low nitrogen oxide (NOx) natural gas-fired auxiliary boiler, needed to keep the HRSGs warm during periods of turbine shutdown and to provide sealing steam during startups, and four diesel-fired black start generators, each with a maximum power rating of 3 MW. The project will be equipped with state-of-the-art emissions control technology, including dry low NOx (DLN) burners and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology to control emissions of NOx, and an oxidation catalyst to control carbon monoxide (CO) and volatile organic compounds (VOC) emissions. A continuous emissions monitoring system (CEMS) will be utilized to ensure and document facility compliance with applicable emissions standards.

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 15 Title 15 Water Withdrawal Public

Project is Located:

Wallkill, Orange County

Project Description:

The Town of Wallkill proposes to acquire the water withdrawal system currently owned by Lorelei Water Supply, Inc, located off of Lorelei Drive in the Town of Wallkill and known as the Lorelei Water District. The Town proposes to use the existing water supply well, identified as Lorelei Well L-1. The existing well will supply water in an amount not to exceed 60 gallons per minute (86,400 gallons per day). In addition, the Town proposes development of a new water supply well, identified as Lorelei Well L-3, with the capacity to supply water in an amount not to exceed 60 gpm (86,400 gpd). Lorelei Well L-3 will replace an existing poorly functioning well, identified as Lorelei Well L-2, and will be used to meet the NYS Health Department's redundancy requirement. The Maximum Permitted Well Field Capacity for the Lorelei Well Field (86,400 gpd) is based on the total withdrawal capacity with the largest well out of service.

As part of this application, the Department will formally consolidate the water supply of the Town of Wallkill, and combine all its water fields and water sources, with a total capacity of approximately 8,870,400 gpd, under a single facility permit (WWA No. 11,968).
