Project Description:
The Department has received a Title V permit renewal application from the Citgo Petroleum Corp. located in Tulsa, Oklahoma for the company's Glenmont Terminal located at 495 River Road., Glenmont, Albany County.  The terminal is a bulk gasoline and oil storage and distribution facility with large above ground gasoline and oil storage tanks and a gasoline tanker truck loading rack from which emissions are controlled by a vapor recovery system.

The applicant has proposed restricting the potential to emit from these emission sources through enforceable permit conditions which will limit or cap emissions at a level which is less than 10 tons per year for each individual Hazardous Air Pollutant (HAP) and less than 25 tons per year for the total of all HAPsthe applicability threshold for 40CFR63, subpart R, the National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for gasoline distribution facilities.  By accepting these state and federally enforceable limits, the facility will not be subject to this particular regulation.  The applicant has agreed to permit conditions which will limit emissions of HAPs by restricting the annual facility throughput of gasoline and distillate oil.  The permittee will be required to maintain records and report this data to verify compliance with permit conditions and limits.  

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 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 any comments received regarding 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.  DECís 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 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 Departmentís permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Departmentís wed site at:
