Application ID: 7-3132-00035/00034
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Article 19 Title IV (Phase II Acid Rain)
Project is Located: Geddes, Onondaga County
Project Description:
The DEC is proposing to renew the Title V permit for WPS Syracuse Generating Station (WPS). The DEC is proposing to issue to WPS, a permit pursuant to Title IV of the Clean Air Act.  The facility consists of a Siemans stationary gas turbine V64.3  equipped with duct burners and a heat recovery steam generator.  Emissions of Nox are controlled with steam injection and a selective catalytic reactor (SCR).   The facility also has equipment that is exempt or trivial.   The facility, while subject to the federal Standards of Performance for Stationary Gas Turbines, is also subject to the more stringent conditions of a federally-enforceable Prevention of Significant Deterioration permit.  WPS is located at 300 Belle Isle Road, Solvay, Onondaga County, NY.

The permit renewal differs from the original Title V permit in that conditions have been added dealing with periods of startup and monitoring emissions of ammonia slip.

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 IV and 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.

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 exist. A copy of the Department's permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Department's wed site at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ohms/gudph1.htm
