Application ID:

8-4682-00006/00034

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Woodhull, Steuben County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a modified and renewed Title V permit to Eastern Gas Transmission and Storage Inc. for its current Title V Facility Permit for its Woodhull Compressor Station & Pool, located at 974 County Route 99 in the Town of Woodhull. Note that the name of the permittee has been changed from Dominion Transmission Inc. The facility compresses natural gas for underground storage and transport through transmission pipelines. The current fuel burning sources consist of eight natural gas fired compressor engines (1-1100 HP, 5-2000 HP, 2-1800 HP), and one 23.8 mmBtu/hr natural gas fired boiler. The engines are subject to 6 NYCRR, Part 227-2.4(f)(1), NOX RACT for internal combustion engines fired solely with natural gas. Additional exempt equipment includes one 814 hp auxiliary generator, one 6.5 mmBtu/hr process heater, three hot water heaters, one space heater, and fifteen above ground storage tanks.

The Department has made a tentative determination to issue the Draft as a Final Permit, if comments received do not raise significant issues that must be addressed before a permit can be issued.

The Draft Permit has changes from the current Permit including the requirement to raise certain stack heights, to extend the fence line, and to employ operation restrictions on ENG07 and ENG08 to mitigate NO2 impact. The Draft permit also includes a compliance schedule to implement these requirements.

The facility will remain subject to Part 201-6 (Title V) for major stationary sources due to potential facility wide emissions of VOC in excess of 50 tons per day, CO and NOX in excess of 100 tons per year each, and potential emissions of formaldehyde, a hazardous air pollutant (HAP), in excess of 10 tons per year.

The Department has determined that the draft permit meets the requirements of the Climate Leadership Community Protection Act (CLCPA).

In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.7(b)(9) and 201-6.3(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. The Draft Permit and Permit Review Report may be viewed and printed from the Department web site at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/8569.html.

DEC will evaluate the application and the comments received on it to determine whether to hold a public hearing. Comments and requests for a public hearing should be in writing and addressed to the Department representative listed below. A copy of the Department's permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Department web site at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/permits/6234.html.
