Application ID: 3-5534-00055/00005
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Mount Pleasant, Westchester County
Project Description:
    The Department has prepared a Draft Permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) and Title V of the Federal Clean Air Act Amendments and made a tentative determination to approve this State Facility Permit for the applicant located in Valhalla, Westchester County.
    New York Medical College (NYMC) operates a School of Medicine and Public Health. It is located at the intersection of Routes 100A and 100C, on a property owned by Westchester County in Valhalla, NY. It is in the same campus with the Westchester County Medical Center.  New York Medical College is engaged in small laboratory-scale research and development activities. The facility's main sources of emissions are its five proposed boilers that supply heat and hot water to campus buildings and processes.
    This permit application is addressing the installation of five new boilers, which will replace the temporary boilers. The temporary boilers will be decommissioned once the five new boilers are in place and operational. The new boilers can operate with natural gas and No. 2 oil.
    The installation of the five new boilers results in a facility NOx emissions increase. The facility is remaining a minor source by limiting the quantity of nitrogen oxides emissions from all air contamination sources to 22.4 tons per year.  The facility is not subject to Title V, NSR, or RACT requirements
    Fuel consumption usage from all sources shall be recorded and NOx emissions shall be calculated monthly. The facility shall submit semi-annual compliance reports. In addition, the facility shall maintain records pertaining to all permit requirements. Applicable regulations include  6 NYCRR Parts 201-5, 211, and 225 and 40 CFR 60 Dc.
    By acceptance of this permit, the permittee agrees that the permit is contingent upon strict compliance with the ECL, all applicable regulations, the General Conditions specified and any Special Conditions included as part of this permit.
    In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.5(d)(9) and 201-6.4©), 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.
    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.   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 two (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 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.
