Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Title IV (Phase II Acid Rain)
Project is Located: Corinth, Saratoga County
Project Description:
The Department has received a complete application and has developed a draft Title IV (Phase II Acid Rain) permit for the Indeck Corinth Energy Center facility. This permit will require the facility to hold allowances to cover sulfur dioxide emissions and adds additional monitoring and reporting requirements. The Title IV permit does not change emission requirements which are already addressed in the facility's Title V Permit. When the Title IV Permit is issued, its requirements will be incorporated into the Title V Permit. Administrative changes will also be made to the Title V 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 and updating the General Conditions contained in the permit. The draft Title IV permit is available by contacting Michael Sundberg, P.E. of the Division of Air Resources staff at (518) 623-1212.
