The Department has made a tentative determination to approve a permit application  for an existing facility for the installation and operation of sewage pump around engine-generators and associated sewage pumps at this facility in order to minimize the level of risk of a dry-weather bypass during the entire overhaul period and until the Plant Upgrade Project is complete.

An emission stack test will be required for the two back-up engine-generators in Phase II.  Exhaust will be processed by a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) after combustion-treatment system in order to meet Part 227 NOx RACT requirements. Phase I engines will only operate as a power source when the usual supply of power is unavailable.
