Fultonville, NY
Application ID: 4-2728-00045/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification
Project is Located: Glen, Montgomery County
Project Description:
Dry Dock Creek located in the Village of Fultonville has considerable sedimentation and debris buildup, much of which is the result of the June 2006 flooding.  This creek is a major stormwater drainage outlet for the Village and it has become severely obstructed. The Village of Fultonville proposes to remove the fallen trees and debris from the stream, dredge the stream bed and banks to remove buildup of silt and place stone rip rap along the banks to provide stabilization of the slopes.  Work in the creek will start approximately 300 feet from the confluence of the creek with the Mohawk River and extend upstream for approximately 500 feet to the culvert at Main Street.  The project requires a 401 Water Quality Certification from the New York State DEC.

Schoharie County

Applicant: Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company
1001 Louisiana St
PO Box 2511
Houston, TX 77002
Facility: Compressor Station 249
Us Route 20 About 1.8 Miles East of Carlisle
Carlisle, NY 12031
Application ID: 4-4324-00005/00007
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Carlisle, Schoharie County
Project Description:

The Department has proposed a Title V permit for the applications that were received for the Compressor Station 249 facility located at 2840 Highway Route 20, Town of Carlisle, County of Schoharie, owned by Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company, 1001 Louisiana Street, Houston, Texas.  The applications are for the renewal of the facility’s existing Title V permit and the modification of adding two new engines to the facility.  The initial Title V permit for the facility was issued on September 7, 2000.  The facility is a natural gas compressor station.  The facility currently includes two natural gas powered engines and proposes the installation of two additional natural gas powered engines.  The engines are used to power compressors for pipeline transportation. The applicant has agreed to permit conditions which limit the emissions of oxides of nitrogen and carbon monoxide from the current engines.  The limits were established under a previous modification to the facility several years ago to avoid the applicability of 40 CFR 52.21, Subpart A.  The applicant has also agreed to permit conditions which will limit the emissions of oxides of nitrogen and volatile organic compounds (VOC) from the two new engines below 40 tons per twelve month period for each contaminant to avoid the applicability of 6 NYCRR Part 231-2.2. The facility will limit the VOC emissions from the new engines through the use of oxidation catalysts.  The oxidation catalysts will be installed on the new engines for the primary purpose of reducing carbon monoxide emissions in order to achieve compliance with 40 CFR 63, Subpart ZZZZ - National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Stationary Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines.  The applicant will be required to maintain records and report this data to verify compliance with permit conditions and limits.

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 two 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 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 exists.  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.

The permit, ID number 4-4324-00005/00007 is available for review at the Region 4 office. The contact person is Kent Sanders, NYSDEC, 65561 State Highway 10, Suite 1, Stamford, NY 12167, telephone (607)652-2564.  Comments will be received for 30 days from the date of this notice.  If comments are received which raise significant issues or provide additional relevant information, the Department may modify the draft Title V Facility 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.
