Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Geddes, Onondaga County
Project Description:
    The Department has prepared a draft permit and made a tentative determination to approve Central Hudson Resourceís application for the installation for (1) an evaporative cooler, (2) an increase in the operating hours for a small heating boiler from 1600 hrs to 6000 hrs, and (3) a reduction in the allowable sulfur content of the fuel oil.  The evaporative cooler increases the capacity of the turbine on warm days by spraying water into the inlet air, thereby cooling the air and making it more dense.  The evaporative cooler, which was installed in July 2000,  will not trigger PSD review or New Source Review under Part 231 because the operating hours of the evaporative cooler will be capped such that any emissions increase will be less than the significance levels.  The permitted emissions rates remain unchanged.
    These changes constitute revisions to a federallyenforceable PSD permit and also to the Title V permit.  
    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.  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 through 4:45 pm), unless the requestor 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.  Comments will be received only for those conditions for which the change is proposed: Condition 12; Condition 13; and Condition 14.  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 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.
