Applicant: Holimont Inc
PO Box 279
Ellicottville, NY 14731 -0279
Facility: Holimont Ski Resort
Fish Hill Road
Ellicottville, NY
Application ID: 9-0499-00046/00005
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Ellicottville, Cattaraugus County
Project Description:
The Department has drafted an Air State Facility Permit for the installation and operation of two natural gas and one diesel fired stationary internal combustion engines on HoliMont property located along Canfield Road in the Town of Mansfield.  The proposed engines will power generators for the production of electricity for HoliMontís ski resort operations only.
 
The draft permit contains state and federally enforceable conditions which limit NOx emissions to 80 tons for each calendar 12 month period.  By complying with this emission cap the facility will maintain emissions below major source thresholds and in turn will avoid Title V permitting under Part 2016,  NOx Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) under Part 2272 and New Source Review under Part 231-2.   The facility will also be required to stack each engine to confirm the accuracy of emission factors used to set limits on natural gas and diesel fuel usage.  If test results show higher values than those used to set limits in this permit, the limits will be adjusted lower accordingly.  Retesting under Department oversight is required prior to any exporting of electricity off site.

This draft permit represents a tentative determination and does not signify department approval for or endorsement of the proposed equipment.  The draft permit is available for review at the Department's Region 9 Buffalo Office, 270 Michigan Avenue, Buffalo, New York 14202 and Allegany Sub-Office, 182 East Union, Suite 3, Allegany, New York 14706.

Facility: Attica & Wyoming Correctional Facilities
Dunbar Road
Attica, NY 14011
Application ID: 9-5622-00010/00017
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Attica, Wyoming County
Project Description:
The Department has prepared a Draft Permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) and the Federal Clean Air Act Amendments and made a tentative determination to approve this modification application for the Attica and Wyoming Correctional Facilities contiguously located on the same property in the Town of Attica, Wyoming County. There is one Air State Facility permit covering both prisons. This modification is to include the operation of diesel internal combustion generator sets while allowing the facility to avoid New Source Review (NSR) and Title V permitting. The use of these generators will allow the Attica and Wyoming Correctional Facilities to participate in New York State's Coordinated Energy Demand Reduction Program (CDRP). This permit also contains new cumulative conditions which limit the amount of diesel fuel being burning in these engines so that the cumulative emissions of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) do not exceed 90 tons per year (tpy) which is below the NSR major source threshold of 100 tpy. In addition, the permit contains facility-wide annual emission limits of 95 tpy for CO, NOx and SO2 also based on a fuel usage formula. The three Detroit diesel generators to be incorporated each produce 1750 kw of power and will be incorporated into emission unit O-OMAIN. These limits cap the facility out of Title V permitting. The Draft permit, with conditions, application relevant supporting materials and regulations are available during normal business hours at the Region 9 Office of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, address provided in this notice. Comments of support or objection may be made by filing a written statement by the deadline date indicated.
