The Department (DEC) has prepared a Draft Permit and has made a tentative determination to approve this application for renewal of an existing Title IV (Phase II Acid Rain) Permit as required by CFR Part 72 for the applicant's Dunkirk Steam Generating Station located on the shore of Lake Erie.   The electrical generating facility consists of four pulverized coal, tangentially fired boilers that produce steam, which turn steam turbine/generator sets to produce electricity for the grid.  The facility can produce a total of 600 megawatts of electricity during maximum production.   Renewal of the Title IV Permit will allow the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and DEC to continue to enforce the requirements of the Acid Rain Program.  Emissions will not increase as a result of the permit renewal.  Prior permits, including the Title V Air Permit, issued to this facility remain in force and also include sulfur and nitrogen oxide requirements.  The Title IV Draft Permit requires:  possessing sufficient sulfur dioxide (SO2) allowances to cover SO2 emissions from this facility; meeting NOx emission rates; submitting annual compliance certification reports to EPA and DEC and monitoring, maintaining and certifying monitoring systems for opacity, SO2 emissions, NOx emissions, carbon dioxide and/or oxygen emissions, and volumetric flow rates in accordance with the requirements of 40 CFR Part 75.  In accordance with 6 NYCRR Parts 621 and 201, the Administrator of the EPA has authority to bar issuance of this permit if it is determined not to be in compliance with the applicable requirements of the Clean Air Act or 6 NYCRR Part 201.   The Draft Permit and application are available for review at the DEC Buffalo Office at 270 Michigan Avenue, Buffalo, New York 14203 and DEC Allegany Sub-Office, 182 East Union, Ste. 3, Allegany, New York 14706.
