Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Hyde Park, Dutchess County

Project Description:

The Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a renewal to State Pollutant Discharge Elimination Systems permit NY0104230, pursuant to 750-2.1(i) and 1.16(a).

The facility discharges treated sanitary wastewater via Outfall 001 to the Fall Kill, a class C water. Current treatment consists of screening, aerated equalization chamber, RBC and secondary clarifiers, sand filtration, and UV disinfection. Sludge is held in a tank and hauled offsite for disposal.

DEC proposes to incorporate the following modifications to this permit: Outfalls 002 - 005 were removed from the permit following completion of construction, and decommissioning of the outfalls; Influent sampling was removed, and changed sampling frequencies to quarterly and composite samples to grab; Chlorine limit was updated; and, Reporting for Ammonia has been changed from (as NH3) to (as N).

The permit includes updated forms and the latest general conditions. Details of changes are specified in the draft permit and statement of basis which may be viewed and printed from the Department web site at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/permits/6054.html

Applicant:

CPV Valley LLC
8403 Colesville Rd Ste 915
Silver Spring, MD 20910

Facility:

CPV Valley Energy Center
3330 Route 6
Middletown, NY 10940

Application ID:

3-3356-00136/00010

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Article 19 Title IV (Phase II Acid Rain)

Project is Located:

Wawayanda, Orange County

Project Description:

CPV Valley Energy LLC (CPV) currently operates the CPV Valley Energy Center (the Facility), a nominal net 680-megawatt (MW) combined-cycle gas turbine electric generating facility, on a site located in Wawayanda, Orange County, New York. The Facility was previously approved (ASF Permit ID: 3-3356-00136/00001) by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC).

The initial ASF permit for the Facility was issued on August 1, 2013 and expired on July 31, 2018. NYS DEC denied the renewal of the ASF permit on August 1, 2018 and required the submission of a Title V air permit application. Pursuant to an Order of Albany County Supreme Court issued on August 15, 2018, CPV was allowed to continue operating the Facility under the terms of the ASF permit pending a final determination on the previously denied permit renewal. On August 31, 2018, CPV submitted applications for Title V and Title IV Acid Rain air permits to NYS DEC pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 201.

The current air permit applications were re-submitted following two Notices of Incomplete Applications, issued by NYS DEC on October 25, 2018 and December 14, 2018, respectively. Pursuant to a subsequent Decision, Order and Judgment of Albany County Supreme Court issued on February 13, 2019, NYS DEC’s August 1, 2018 permit expiration determination was vacated, and CPV was allowed to continue operating pending final administrative resolution of its ASF renewal application or until a final determination on Title V and Title IV air permits. Considering the latest Supreme Court decision, NYS DEC will seek to suspend the current ASF revocation proceeding and process CPV’s Title V and Title IV air permit applications, which will allow the public a full and fair opportunity to review and comment on those applications and draft permits.

The Facility consists of two Siemens F-class combustion turbine generators (CTGs) operating in combined-cycle mode with supplemental firing of the heat recovery steam generators (HRSGs). The Facility includes a natural gas-fired auxiliary boiler and ULSD-fired emergency fire pump engine. The auxiliary boiler and emergency fire pump engine have the same rating and emissions as those contained in the original ASF permit issued by NYS DEC. In addition to the air emitting equipment, the Facility has two steam turbine generators (STGs), an air cooled condenser (ACC) and associated auxiliary equipment and systems. Each combined cycle generating unit consisting of the CTG, HRSG and STG is exhausted through its own stack.

Air emissions from the Facility primarily consist of products of combustion from the CTGs, HRSG duct burners, and ancillary combustion sources. Orange County is designated as being in attainment with respect to the National Ambient Air Quality Standards for all criteria pollutants with the exception of ozone. Based upon the potential to emit estimates, the Facility is subject to Prevention of Significant Deterioration requirements for emissions of carbon monoxide (CO); nitrogen oxides (NOx); particulate matter (PM) with a diameter equal to or less than 10 microns; greenhouse gases; and sulfuric acid mist. In accordance with the NYS DEC’s Nonattainment New Source Review (NNSR) permitting program, the Facility is also subject to NNSR for emissions of NOx and volatile organic compounds (VOC). The Facility has capped emissions of PM with a diameter equal to or less than 2.5 microns to less than the NNSR applicability threshold.

The Facility is equipped with state-of-the-art emissions control technology, including dry low NOx burners and selective catalytic reduction technology to control emissions of NOx, and an oxidation catalyst to control CO and VOC emissions. A continuous emissions monitoring system is utilized to ensure and document facility compliance with applicable emissions standards. Water use is minimized by the use of ACC.

To authorize the continued operation of the Facility the conditions in the draft Title V and Title IV air permits must assure conformance of the Facility with all applicable State and federal air pollution control regulations, including the requirements of 6 NYCRR Parts 201, 225, 227, 231, 242, 243, 244, 245 and 257, as well as all New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) at 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 60. Information regarding the demonstration of the Lowest Achievable Emission Rate or Best Available Control Technology or both is included within the draft air permits.

As per the requirements of 6 NYCRR Subpart 231-5, the Facility is subject to NNSR review for NOx and VOC. Based on the applicability of NNSR, the Facility has purchased 216 tons per year (tpy) of NOx Emission Reduction Credits (ERCs) and 75 tpy of VOC ERCs to comply with the rule. The sources of these ERCs are as follows, and these have not changed from NYS DEC’s prior ASF permit approval:

NOX
SONY Electronics, Inc. – 216 tpy

VOC
Airbill Industries, Inc. – 17 tpy
S. Walter Packaging Corp. (Uniflex Holdings, Inc.) [DEC ID # 1-2822-00367] – 58 tpy

A Combined Notice of Complete Application and Determination to Hold a Public Hearing can be found at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/enb/20190529_not3.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 has made a determination to hold a public hearing on the air permit applications and draft permits and will provide a notice of the time, date and location in the near future. 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.
