Application ID: 6-2128-00126/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 15 Title 3 Aquatic Pesticides
Project is Located: Herkimer County
Project Description:
Whole lake treatment of Ilion Reservoir No. 3, a 38 acre, 165 million gallon, high quality water supply reservoir for the Village of Ilion, with Sonar A.S. to maintain a concentration of 4 ppb for 90 days in order to eradicate Eurasian milfoil. The reservoir has not been used as a water source due to dense infestation of the Eurasian milfoil covering all of the shallow water zone to a depth of 12-15 feet. During drought times, the Village has been forced to use poor quality stream sources that are expensive to pump into the system and expensive to treat. Also there are significant impacts to the streams.

Application ID: 6-2156-00018/00021
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Herkimer County
Project Description:
This Department has received a request to modify a permit and has drafted an Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the Environmental Conservation Law, an Air Title V Permit, for the facility located at Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company Compressor Station 245, 457 Burrows Road, West Winfield, NY 13491.

The Department has made a tentative determination to approve the application for modification of the Title V Permit, which provides for the transmission of natural gas along the natural gas pipeline.  The Title V Permit allows the operations of emission units R-24501, R-24502, and R-24504, which includes two Ingersall Rand internal combustion engines, five Worthington UTC internal combustion engine, and one Clark TLAD internal combustion engine.   The modification allows the operation of emission unit R-24503, R-24505, and a backup emergency generator.  Emission unit R-24503 includes the Worthington ML-12 internal combustion engine,  operating in a way that closely approximates the operation of the original configuration, which is the pre-modification baseline.  The R-24503 modification also reinstates the alternative NOx RACT limit of 13.3 g/bhp-hr for the ML-12 engine, replacing a voluntary target NOx emission rate of 11 g/bhp-hr that was proposed in their NOx RACT Plan submitted with respect to the new 6 NYCRR Part 227 NOx RACT requirements, in March 2004.  This engine will be returned to its original configuration (remaining at the reinstated alternate limit of 13.3g/bhp-hr) as described in a letter submitted and approved  on January 26, 2006. The emission unit R-24505 includes the addition of two Catepillar Model 3612 lean burn internal combustion engines. These units have been capped for Carbon Monoxide for Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD-40 CFR Part 52.21) and for Volatile Organic Compounds for New Source Review (NSR-6NYCRR Part 231).  This modification also allows the replacement of emission unit R-24501 engines used to generate electricity for the facility with an emergency generator, because the facility will be purchasing electricity from National Grid.

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 a.m. through 4:45 p.m.), unless the requester 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 a 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 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's web site at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ohms/gudph1.htm.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Part 621.5(d)(9) and 201-6.4(c), the Administrator of the 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.  After the public comment period, the USEPA will be provided a proposed permit and will have an additional 45 day period for review.  If USEPA does not raise any objection, the Department will issue the permit. The application and Draft Title V Facility Permit are available in the Region 6 NYSDEC office in Utica, New York.
