Project Description:
Con Edison submitted an application to establish Emission Reduction Credits (ERCs) at its Hudson Avenue Generating Station which is located in Brooklyn at 1-11 Hudson Avenue. The application reflects retirement of Boiler 100 at the facility and is an air contamination source subject to 6 NYCRR Part 201. The site is a nonattainment area for ozone and CO. This emission source is a high pressure steam boiler rated at 1,380,000 lb/hr steam output. The steam from this boiler formerly powered steam turbine No. 10 rated at 48 Megawatts, now also retired. The boiler was permitted under pre-1996 Part 201 to combust either low-sulfur residual or natural gas or both fuels in combination. For ERC calculation, the applicant has chosen two consecutive annual periods ending December 31, 1993 that were representative of normal operation of this source and can be accepted as the baseline period. The gross emission reductions for each emission reduction contaminant are as follows: VOC=20.5 TPY; NOX=1,230.5 TPY; CO=143.5 TPY. From these, the amounts available to the facility and which may be sold, traded or otherwise used are: VOC OFFSETS=15.38 TPY; NOX OFFSETS=922.88 TPY. The Department recommends the approval of the Emission Reduction Credits Application.

Project Description:
The Department has drafted a permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Conservation Law (ECL) and Title V of the Federal Clean Air Act Amendments and made a tentative determination to approve this application for the applicant's existing gasoline distribution facility. The facility, Motiva Enterprises LLC located at 25 Paidge Ave., Brooklyn, NY, stores gasoline and gasoline additives. Product is received via pipeline, truck and barge and distributed via truck. This application was previously noticed in the ENB on June 16, 1999. Since that time the applicant has amended their application and now proposes to increase the capacity of their VRU from 338,250,000 gpy to 541,000,000 gpy. This modification has been capped from applicability of 6 NYCRR Subpart 231-2 by the inclusion of permit conditions which shall limit the VOC emissions, from the VRU, to 7 milligrams per liter. The facility is subject to the requirements of Title V and the following rules: 6 NYCRR Parts 225, 229 and 230 and 40 CFR 60 Subparts A and XX. The facility is below applicability thresholds for 40 CFR 63 Subpart R. The Title V permit contains a complete listing of the applicable Federal, State and compliance monitoring requirements for the facility. In accordance with 6 NYCRR Parts 621(d)(9) and 201-6.4(c), the Administrator of the U.S. 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 6 NYCRR Part 201.

This cap on the NOx emissions from Boiler 30 will result in the creation of 110 tons/year of NOx Emission Reduction Credits (ERCs) All 110 tons/yr. of NOx ERCs will be applied to the reactivation of Boiler 20. The ERCs are being established in accordance with 6 NYCRR Part 231-2. 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.

Project Description:
The applicant has proposed to construct a 28-unit residential development on Richmond county Tax Block 3491, Lot 85, located at Sand Lane and Oceanside Avenue, Staten Island. The development parcel covers approximately two acres, and its western portion consists of a peninsula which projects into DEC Freshwater Wetland No. NA-7 (South Beach). A new road called Oceanside Court will be constructed parallel to Oceanside Avenue, extending into the basal half of the peninsula to provide access. A buffer area of varying width, but averaging approximately thirty feet, heavily vegetated with existing trees and augmented where necessary by plantings of native trees and shrubs, will be maintained on both sides of the peninsula to screen the development from the wetland, which is a Phragmites marsh. Approximately one-half acre of the project site, consisting of the western part of the peninsula, will be preserved and converted to additional freshwater wetland area by excavation of a pond and planting with native species.
