Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Herkimer County
Project Description:
This Department has received a request to issue a permit and has drafted an Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the Environmental Conservation Law, an Air State Facility Permit, at the Cogent Little Falls facility in Little Falls, New York.  The facility produces electric power for the grid and steam for the adjacent Burrows Paper Mill.  This permit action is to combine the two existing permits into one Air State Facility Permit and to install a new stack with a height of 130 feet.  No new emissions will result from this permit action.  The facility emissions include nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, particulates, and volatile organic compounds.

This permit includes federally enforceable conditions that limit facility emissions of nitrogen oxides, and sulfur dioxide to less than 90 tons per year.  This "cap" ensures that Cogent Little Falls emissions stay below major source thresholds of Title V.

The draft permit with conditions is available for review in the Region 6 NYS DEC office in Watertown, New York.
