Application ID: 3-3336-00022/00055
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Highlands, Orange 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 application for the Applicant’s facility located in Highlands, Orange County, New York.
    The facility consists of an educational institution and an active Army installation. Potential emissions from the facility of sulfur dioxide, oxides of nitrogen (NOx),carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds, and perchloroethylene are above major source thresholds, as defined by the Federal Clean Air Act, and therefore, the facility is required to obtain a Title V permit.
    The following emission sources are included in the Title V permit: 3 boilers and a peak shaving/emergency generator at the Central Power Plant, 2 boilers at the Laundry Plant, 6 other boilers, 5 other emergency generators, 4 gasoline dispensing units, 7 gasoline storage tanks, 4 dry-cleaning machines, a solvent cleaning tank for band instrument parts, and a spray booth for painting motor vehicles and coating wood furniture.
    The Central Power Plant generator is rated at 1230 kilowatts and burns diesel fuel. NOx emissions from the generator are limited to 24.0 tons in any consecutive 12 month period, in order to remain below the applicable requirements of 6NYCRR Part 231 New Source Review.
    Within the past five years, Boilers #1 and #2 at the Central Power Plant have been replaced, These boilers are rated at 155.6 million BTU per hour each.  Boiler #3 is rated at 92 million BTU per hour when burning natural gas and 97 million BTU per hour when burning No. 2 fuel oil. Natural gas is the primary fuel at the plant and No. 2 oil is the backup.  There are limits on NOx and sulfur dioxide emissions from the boilers, in order to remain below the applicable requirements of New Source Review and 40 CFR 52 Prevention of Significant Deterioration. NOx emissions are limited to 77.1 tons (a zero ton increase from past actuals) in any consecutive 12 month period.
    The following regulations are applicable to the facility: 6NYCRR Parts 200, 201, 202, 211,  225, 226, 227, 228, 230, 231and 232 and 40 CFR 60 Subparts Db and Dc, 40 CFR 63 Subpart M, and 40 CFR 93B.
    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(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.
    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.
