    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.  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.

New Windsor, NY 12553
Application ID: 3-3348-00087/00005
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: New Windsor, 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 renewal of Warex Terminals Corporation  - North Terminal's Air Title V Permit originally issued July 26, 2000.
    Warex Terminals Corporation operates this Petroleum Bulk Terminal located in New Windsor, Orange County, New York.  This facility is engaged in the receipt, storage, blending and distribution of petroleum products and operates 24 hours per day.  The Standard Industrial Classification Code for this facility is 5171 -  Petroleum Bulk Storage Terminal.
    The facility operations include three (3) Plants with a total of ten (10) above ground storage tanks of various sizes.  Three (3) Loading Rack areas are used to transfer petroleum product from the tanks into the trucks.
    The vapors from the loading of gasoline into the storage tanks and trucks is controlled by a Vapor Combustion Unit.  The loading of the distillates are not required to be controlled.
    The facilities potential air emissions for Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAP) exceed the Major Source Pollutant Threshold listed in 6 NYCRR 201-6.  Therefore, the facility is subject to the provisions of Title V.
    The original Title V permit was modified on July 31, 2003 to incorporate the following changes:1) Synchronize the various record keeping and reporting requirements to a calendar year basis rather than having some of them based on the anniversary of the permit's issuance, 2) Correct the limit on the sulfur allowed in distillate fuels distributed for the facility, 3) Increase the gasoline throughput limit from 190,00,000 gallons per year to 250,000,000 gallons per year.  Warex has submitted calculations showing that the associated emission increases do not trigger any additional requirements.  Specifically, the factor calculated in 40 CFR 63 Subpart R from a number of parameters including gasoline throughput, remains in the range between 0.5 and 1.0.  The difference between the facility's past actual emissions and the new maximum annual potential for volatile organic compounds (VOC) is less than the significant source project threshold of 40 tons per year as defined in Subpart 231-2, New Source Review in Nonattainment Areas and Ozone Transport Regions.
    On September 16, 2003, the permit was modified to include storage and blending of de-natured ethanol into reformulated gasoline blendstock for oxygenate blending.
    This renewal includes all of the previously incorporated modifications to the permit.
    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©), 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.
