Chemung County

Applicant: NYS Dept of Correctional Services
Building 2 - State Office Building Campus
Albany, NY 12226
Facility: Southport Correctional Facility
236 Institution Rd
Pine City, NY 14871
Application ID: 8-0736-00017/00003
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Southport, Chemung County
Project Description:
The Department has prepared a Draft Permit and has made a tentative determination to approve this application for the intial State Facility Air Permit for the Southport Correctional Facility located at 236 Institution Rd. in the Town of Southport, Chemung County.  The facility
operates two 16.75 million BTU/hr dual fuel boilers and one 10.46 million BTU/hr dual fuel boiler, identified as Emission Unit  0-0MAIN, two CDRP generators, and exempt combustion units.   The dual fuel boilers use natural gas as the primary fuel and #2 fuel oil as the backup.

The facility proposes to limit or "cap" emissions to 194,480 pounds per year of Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) by restricting the use of  #2 fuel oil ( with a maximum sulfur content by weight of 0.5% ) to 900,286 gal/yr on a 12 month rolling total basis.  This facility wide cap includes 650,000gal/yr for the powerhouse boilers and 250,286 gal/yr for exempt combustion units and the generators included in the CDRP program.  Based on these totals, the  permit includes federally enforceable permit conditions which will restrict or “cap”  the facility’s emissions of Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) and Oxides of Nitrogen (Nox) below the Title V and PSD thresholds for a major stationary source under the Clean Air Act and 6 NYCRR Part 201.

By accepting these state and federally enforceable limits, the facility will not be subject to Title V of the Clean Air Act.  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.
