Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Islip, Suffolk County
Project Description:
The Department has prepared a Draft Permit and has made a tentative determination to approve this application for an Air State Facility permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the Environmental Conservation Law (ECL).  The primary emission units at the facility consist of three (3) 18 MMBTU/hr E. Keeler Co. boilers with Todd burners, burning natural gas and No. 2 fuel oil and six (6) emergency generators.  The facility's potential to emit (PTE) oxides of nitrogen (NOx RACT) exceeds the major facility threshold of 25 tons per year (tpy).  The proposed State Facility Permit caps NOx emissions at the facility to less than 22.5 tpy by providing a method to demonstrate that fuel usage, on a monthly rolling basis, is limited such that the NOx regulatory threshold will not be exceeded.  The facility has agreed to accept permit conditions that will limit facility wide emissions of oxides of nitrogen at 22.5 tons per year.  By accepting these state and federally enforceable limits the facility will not be subject to the provisions of the Title V operating permit program and New Source Review requirements.  The application and the draft permit are available for review at the Region 1 office in Stony Brook.  The facility is located at One Healthy Way in the hamlet of West Islip, Town of Islip, Suffolk County.
