ENB Region 6 Completed Applications 06/25/2003

Lewis County

Applicant: Iroquois Gas Transmission System Inc
One Corporate Drive Suite 606
Shelton, CT 06484 -6208
Facility: Croghan Compressor Station
Old State Road
Croghan, NY 13327
Application ID: 6-2320-00026/00007
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Lewis County
Project Description:
Croghan Compressor Station proposes to modify their existing permit to allow an increase in Particulate Matter (PM) emissions for emission unit 00002.  This modification is proposed pursuant to stack testing results for PM.   The facility did not meet the PM emission limits in their existing permit.  Further investigation revealed that the PM emission limit was based on the latest AP-42 emission factors.  The emission factor was the result of limited testing on only one turbine which is roughly ten times the size of the Croghan emission unit 00002.  Therefore, the Department modified the PM emission limit to correspond with the previous AP-42 emission factor which was based on a much larger test sampling.  The recently completed PM stack testing showed compliance with this emission factor. The Croghan Compressor Station compresses natural gas for distribution throughout the state and is located on Old State Rd., Croghan, Lewis County. This change would be a minor modification of their existing State Facility Permit which limits emissions below Title V thresholds.  The Department has prepared a draft permit and made a tentative determination to approve this application for a modification of an existing permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) and 6 NYCRR Part 201.  The application, draft permit, relevant supporting materials and regulations are available for review during normal business hours at the regional office.  Written comments may be made within the 30 day period ending on the last filing date indicated in this notice.  The Department may modify the draft permit based on significant or important information raised during the comment period.  The Department may also schedule a public hearing based upon an evaluation of the nature and scope of any written comments raised.  Following the 30 day comment period, the Department may then issue the final draft permit.
