Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Huntington, Suffolk County
Project Description:
The Department has drafted a modification (Mod 1) to the initial Title V permit, pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control)of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) and made tentative determination to approve this application to revise the mass emission limits for trace metals and organic compounds (except dioxins/furans) in conformance with Special Condition No. I. M. 2 of the original NYSDEC air pollution source permit (ID # 1472600790/000010). These mass emission limits for trace metals and organics are stateonly requirements based on the SEQRA reviews performed in 1989.
During the initial Title V Permit issuance on October 4, 2000, the emission limits for trace metals and organics, were revised using the NYSDEC approach of Central Limit Theorem and 95 percent confidence intervals. The dataderived permit limitations based upon the 99.5th confidence level are proposed in this modification as the appropriate limits moving forward to complete the data analyses to be completed pursuant to Special Condition I. M. 2.  The Department agreed to increase the statistical confidence level from 95 to 99.5 percent to allow the process variability and heterogeneous characteristic of the municipal solid waste combusted.  The proposed data derived emission limitations are more stringent than the original permit limitations subjected to the SEQRA review process for the construction of this facility.
Additionally, as a result of recent modification to permit structure and language for all Title V permits issued in New York State, a number of changes have been made in this permit modification related to citing general conditions.  The general conditions are now listed under the NOTIFICATION OF GENERAL PERMITTEE OBLIGATIONS section, as these are not subject to the annual compliance certification.
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.  DECís 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 Departmentís permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Department web site at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ohms/gudph1.htm
In accordance with 6NYCRR Part 621.6(d)(9) the Administrator of USEPA has the authority to bar issuance of any Title V facility permit if it is to be determined not to be in compliance with applicable requirements of Clean Air Act or 6NYCRR Part 201.  DEC may schedule a hearing based upon an evaluation of the nature and scope of any written objections raised.  Hearing notices will contain instructions on filing for party status and submitting comments.  The application, supporting materials and a draft permit are available at the Region 1 office.
