Application ID: 4-0122-00052/00009
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Bethlehem, Albany County
Project Description:
The Department has proposed an Air State Facility permit for the application that was received for the Glenmont Terminal, River Road, Glenmont, owned by Center Point Terminal Company, Glenmont, New York.  This facility is a New York State licensed major oil storage facility.  Petroleum products are primarily delivered to the facility by barge and shipped from the facility by tanker trucks.  Aggregate petroleum storage capacity is approximately 90,000,000 gallons.  Nine petroleum storage tanks containing kerosene (1 tank), fuel oil (5 tanks), and gasoline (3 tanks) are located at the facility. There are three loading racks.  Gasoline is only loaded at the bottom-loading rack which is connected to a vapor burn-off unit.  Distillates are loaded at a second bottom-loading rack without a burn-off unit.  Barges are loaded with fuel oil only at the dock loading rack.

The company proposes to convert the existing kerosene tank, and two fuel oil tanks to store gasoline.  The facility will also be reconstructing and updating existing loading racks and installing a new vapor burn-off unit.

Persons wishing to inspect the subject Air State Facility 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 in this notice.  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 business days of contact, during normal business hours (8:30 AM through 4:45 PM), unless the requester wishes to inspect the files at a later date.  Comments pertaining to this application will be received for 30 days from the date of this notice.  If comments are received which raise significant issues or provide additional relevant information, the Department may modify the draft Air State Facility Permit.
