Application ID: 3-3336-00022/00055
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Highlands, Orange 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 Title V of the Federal Clean Air Act Amendments and made a tentative determination to approve this modification application for the Applicantís facility located at West Point, New York.
    The United States Military Academy is an educational institution and an active Army installation.  Emissions from the facility of sulfur dioxide, oxides of nitrogen (NOx), carbon monoxide, and volatile organic compounds are above major source thresholds, as defined by the Federal Clean Air Act, and therefore, the facility is required to obtain a Title V permit.
    Modification #1 includes the following changes to the Title V permit:
    Expiration of oxygen in gasoline requirements to be consistent with the revised Part 225-3 (previously Conditions 46 and 79).
    Enhancement of gasoline Reid Vapor Pressure requirements (Condition 1-17) to ensure compliance with Part 225.-3 (previously Conditions 45 and 78).
    Expiration of a 0.2 pound per million BTU particulate limit pertaining to the laundry plant boilers, which were de-rated, and so this limit no longer applies (previously Conditions 100 and 101).
    Addition of a condition (1-14) to monitor laundry plant boiler parameters and ensure the new heat input rating (48.4 million BTU per hour), and removal of the de-rating compliance plan (previously Condition 90).
    Revision of conditions to monitor NOx emissions and to specify NOx limits pertaining to the Central Power Plant boilers (Conditions 1-7, 1-8 and 1-9), due to the replacement of boilers #1 and #2 (previously Conditions 56, 61 and 62.).  The NOx limits are 0.2 pounds per million BTU for boilers #1 and #2, and 0.3 pounds per million BTU for boiler #3.
    Addition of requirements from a pre-construction permit for four new boilers and three new new emergency generators which comprise Emission Unit 700SC (Conditions 1-4 which replaces Condition 34, 1-5 and 1-10 through 1-13).
    Conversion from No. 5 oil to No. 2 oil as one of the fuels burned by the laundry plant boilers. The new fuel is specified in Condition 44, Item 44.12.
    Expirations and replacements to standard permit conditions to be consistent with ongoing updates to regulatory requirements and permit conditions (previously Conditions 1 through 23, 25, 27, 29, 32, 33, 41, 95 and 96 and now appear as Items A through Z AA BB and CC and Conditions 1-1,1-2,1-3,1-6, 1-15 and 1-16).
    All other requirements and emission limits specified in the original Title V permit remain the same
    By acceptance of this permit, the permittee agrees that the permit is contingent upon strict compliance with the ECL, all applicable regulations, the General Conditions specified and any Special Conditions included as part of this permit.
    In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.5(d)(9) and 201-6.4(c), the Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA)  has the authority to bar issuance of any Title V Facility Permit if it is determined not to be in compliance with applicable requirements of the Clean Air Act or  6NYCRR Part 201.
    Persons wishing to inspect the subject Title V files, including the application with all relevant supporting materials, the draft permit, and all other materials available to the DEC (the "permitting authority") that are relevant to this permitting decision should contact the DEC representative listed below.  It is recommended that an appointment be made to confirm the availability of the subject files.  The DEC will endeavor to make the files available within two (2) business days of contact, during normal business hours (8:30 am through 4:45 pm), unless the requestor wishes to inspect the files at a later date.
    DEC will evaluate the application and the comments received on it to determine whether to hold a public hearing.  A public hearing may be legislative or adjudicatory.  A legislative public hearing is a proceeding which provides an additional opportunity for public comment.  DECís determination to hold a legislative public hearing will be based on whether a significant degree of public interest exists.   If a legislative public hearing is to be held, a Notice of Hearing will be published which will include the time and place of the hearing and submitting comments.   The applicant and all persons who  have filed comments on the permit will be notified by mail of the public hearing.  Comments and requests for a legislative public hearing should be in writing and addressed to the Department representative listed below.
    An adjudicatory public hearing is a trial type proceeding which provides the opportunity for adjudication on the basis of evidence, including direct testimony and cross examination.  An adjudicatory hearing is held only if substantive and significant issues relating to any findings or determinations the Department is required to make pursuant to the Environmental Conservation Law exist.  A copy of the Departmentís permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Department web site at:  http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ohms/gudph1.htm.

Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Private/Commercial/Institutional SPDES
Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Stormwater Discharge
Project is Located: Southeast, Putnam County
Project Description:
The Department has made a tentative determination to approve this application to modify a SPDES permit to allow a subsurface discharge (Outfall 001) of 33,600 gallons per day (gpd) of treated sanitary wastewater in conjunction with the construction of Phases 2 & 3 of the Terravest International Corporate Park project, including construction of approximately 450,000 square feet of office/warehouse space, 60 units of single family detached senior residential housing, a town park with two baseball fields, and various drainage improvements and associated parking facilities on a 139+ acre site.  Although the proposed project currently has a SPDES permit (issued January 10, 1989) with a permitted discharge of 40,000 gpd, the originally proposed wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) with surface discharge was never built. The modification will discontinue the existing permitted surface discharge of 40,000 gpd from the applicant's proposed office park to an unnamed tributary of the Middle Branch Croton river, Class C. The proposed modification reflects construction of a new WWTP with subsurface disposal. In addition, proposed commercial buildings will internally recycle a portion of "gray water" to minimize flows to the on-site WWTP and subsurface disposal system. There will be no increase in permitted volume of the discharge as a result of the project. The project is located north of International Boulevard and is bisected by Zimmer Road northwest of NYS Route 312 in the Town of Southeast. A draft permit is available for inspection and comment at the regional office.
