Application ID: 5-1634-00022/00018
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Chateaugay, Franklin County
Project Description:
The Department has prepared a draft permit and made a tentative determination to approve this application for a minor modification to the existing Title V facility permit for the applicant's waste wood fired electrical power plant.  The requested modification will allow them to substitute creosote-treated waste wood products up to 30 percent, by weight, of the total fuel currently used, to fuel the existing Riley Stoker Boiler.  A previously authorized trial burn of the creosote-treated waste wood materials demonstrated that use of this alternate fuel source in the manner described will allow the facility to continue to operate within the constraints of its present Title V permit. Administrative changes will also be made to the permit at this time that will replace some current conditions with Department mandated revisions.  These administrative changes include revising the format of the permit to clearly separate conditions which do not require annual compliance certification from those that do, an update of the General Conditions contained in the permit and a change to the method and averaging period for determining compliance with PSD emission capping limits to make them consistent with current regulatory requirements.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.5(d)(9) and 201-6.4(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, 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.  It is recommended that an appointment be made to confirm the availability of the subject files.  The DEC will endeavor to make the files available within 2 business days of contact, during normal business hours (8:30 am to 4:45 pm), unless the requester wishes to inspect the files at a later date.  DEC will evaluate the application and the comments received on it to determine whether to hold a public hearing.  A public hearing may be legislative or adjudicatory.  A legislative public hearing is a proceeding which provides an additional opportunity for public comment. DEC's determination to hold a legislative public hearing will be based on whether a significant degree of public interest exists.  If a legislative public hearing is to be held, a Notice of Hearing will be published which will include the time and place of the hearing and submitting comments.  The applicant and all persons who have filed comments on the permit will be notified by mail of the public hearing.  Comments and requests for a legislative public hearing should be in writing and addressed to the Department representative listed below.  An adjudicatory public hearing is a trial type proceeding which provides the opportunity for adjudication on the basis of evidence, including direct testimony and cross examination.  An adjudicatory hearing is held only if substantive and significant issues relating to any findings or determinations the Department is required to make pursuant to the Environmental Conservation Law exist.  A copy of the Department's permit hearing procedure is available upon request or on the Department web site at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ohms/gudph1.htm
