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 an existing Air Title V Permit.  The facility operates flexographic printing equipment for manufacturing lables for consumer and industrial products.
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.  The Draft Permit and Permit Review Report may be viewed and printed from the Department web site at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/dar/boss/afs/index.html.
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: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ohms/gudph1.htm.

Port Jefferson, NY 11777
Application ID: 1-4722-00107/00013
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES
Project is Located: Brookhaven, Suffolk County
Project Description:
    The Department is proposing to modify the SPDES permit for the Port Jefferson Power Station located on the west shore of Port Jefferson Harbor, part of Long Island Sound.  The Port Jefferson Power Station currently operates Units 3 and 4, which became operational in 1958  and 1960 respectively.  In 1996 Unit 3 was converted to dual-fuel use ( #6 oil or natural gas). Unit 4 was converted in 1997.  Each unit has a maximum generating capacity of 175 megawatts.  In addition to these steam units there are three combustion turbines on site that can produce up to a total of 95.9 megawatts.
    Units 3 and 4 are cooled by a once-through system that draws water from Port Jefferson Harbor through a shoreline intake structure located landward of a docking facility currently used by vessels making oil deliveries to the station.  The system consists of two cooling water circulator pumps per unit with a combined rated capacity of 204,000 gallons per minute (GPM) or 294 million gallons per day (MGD), four conventional vertical traveling screens with 0.375 inch mesh, and four vertical trash racks with 3 inch bar spaces.  The discharge of cooling water from the Port Jefferson Station Units 3 and 4 is through a  surface outfall south of the intake structure, located at the shoreline, into Port Jefferson Harbor.
    This SPDES permit authorizes the discharge of non-contact cooling water, evaporator blowdown, condensed steam, intake bay dewatering effluent, treated wastewater, and storm water to Port Jefferson Harbor.  The modifications to the SPDES permit being contemplated by the Department includes an update of monitoring information, and requires KeySpan to submit data and analyses related to the once-through cooling system. The information will be utilized by the Department to determine best technology available for minimizing adverse impacts to the aquatic resources of Port Jefferson Harbor.  KeySpan will also be required to review possible technologies and operational measures to minimize aquatic impacts.  The information is being requested pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 704.5 and 40 CFR 125 - Subpart J.  
    A copy of the draft SPDES permit and fact sheet are available for review at the DEC Region 1 office or by calling the contact listed below.
