Seneca County
Applicant: NYS Dept Of Correctional Services
Building 2 - State Office Building Campus
Albany, NY 12226-
Facility: Willard Drug Treatment Campus
7116 County Road 132
Willard, NY 14588-
Application ID: 8-4528-00002/00011
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Ovid, Seneca County
Project Description:
The Department proposes to issue a modification to the original State Facility Air Permit for the Willard Drug Treatment Facility located at 7116 County Route 132 in the Town of Ovid, Seneca County.  The facility proposes a three phase plan to replace the current five boilers used to provide heat that burn #6 fuel oil with a total of four new dual fuel boilers that burn either natural gas or #2 fuel oil.  

The applicant’s request includes federally enforceable permit conditions which will restrict  or "cap”  the facility’s emissions of Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) and Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) to 198,000 pounds per year each, which is below the Title V thresholds for a major stationary source under the Clean Air Act and 6 NYCRR Part 201.  In addition,  the #6 fuel oil used by the facility will have a maximum sulfur content by weight of 0.5%, which is below the Part 225 limit of 1.5%,  thereby "capping" out of Part 225.

By accepting these state and federally enforceable limits, the facility will not be subject to Title V or 6 NYCRR Part 225.  The applicant has agreed to maintain records that verify facility emissions during any consecutive 12 month period.  All required records must be maintained on site for a minimum of 5 years and made available to the Department upon request to verify compliance with permit conditions.  The application and draft permit are available for review at the Region 8 office located at 6274 East Avon - Lima Rd. in Avon.
