Tompkins County

Applicant: Cornell University
300 Day Hall
Ithaca, NY 14853 -2801
Facility: Cornell University Main Campus
College Ave
Ithaca, NY 14853
Application ID: 7-5007-00030/00029
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Ithaca, Tompkins County
Project Description:
The Department has prepared a Draft Permit and has made a tentative determination to approve a modification to Cornell University to its Title V permit.  This modification incorporates the provisions of a State Facility Permit which was issued to Cornell University to authorize construction of a new paint booth.

Cornell University was previously issued a Title V permit for a paint booth in April, 2001.  This is one of four Title V permits that has been issued to Cornell University.  The original Title V permit will be modified to incorporate the new paint booth.

The paint shop facility is part of Cornell Universityís overall facility, which includes coal, oil and gas-fired power boilers and a pathological waste incinerator.  The facility is a major source of Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and is located in the attainment portion of the ozone transport region.  The paint shop is used to coat wood furniture, metal furniture and other metal objects.  The paint booth is located in a new building.  Mesh filter pads are used to control overspray.  All of the equipment is new (the building, duct work, fan and the booth) except the spray gun.

Coatings are stored in cabinets and on shelves in a store room.  A log sheet is filled out each day showing what coatings were used, how much coating was used and how much thinner was added, and to what surface (wood or metal) the coating was applied.

Coating use averages about 30 - 35 gallons/month.  Cornellís 2003 emission statements show VOC emissions and HAP emissions from the paint booth to be about 0.5 ton per year.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.5(d)(9) and 2016.4(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 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.  DEC's 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 Department's permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Department web site at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ohms/gudph1.htm.
