Application ID: 1-2820-00653/00055
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Hempstead, Nassau County
Project Description:
The Department has prepared a Draft Permit and has made a tentative determination to approve this application for renewal of the Air Title V Facility Permit for the Nassau County Cedar Creek Water Pollution Control Plant.

The facility is a 72 million gallon per day sewage treatment plant which services portions of Nassau County, New York.  The plant operates five 3,000 KW engine generators which can burn natural gas, digester gas, or fuel oil.  The engines are used to provide power internally to the unit processes and equipment such as aeration tank blowers and main sewage pumps.  The plant also operates four boilers rated at 29.95 mmBtu/hr to produce hot water required for the central chillers and space heaters. Additionally, the plant employs eleven pack-bed wet scrubbers to control odors from the process operations. NaOH and NaOCl  are continuously added to neutralize sulfur compounds. The engines incorporate  clean-burn  modifications to reduce NOx emissions and catalytic oxidizers to reduce CO emissions. The boilers are designed with low NOx burners and flue recirculation to reduce NOx emissions.

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 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: www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ohms/gudph1.htm.
