PREAMBLE 1


Acknowledgment of Notices of Intent to Remediate Submitted under the Land Recycling and Environmental Remediation Standards Act (35 P.S. §§ 6026.101—6026.907).

 Sections 302—305 of the Land Recycling and Environmental Remediation Standards Act (act) (35 P.S. §§ 6026.302—6026.305) require the Department to publish in the Pennsylvania Bulletin an acknowledgment noting receipt of Notices of Intent to Remediate. An acknowledgment of the receipt of a Notice of Intent to Remediate is used to identify a site where a person proposes to, or has been required to, respond to a release of a regulated substance at a site. A person intending to use the background standard, Statewide health standard, the site-specific standard or intend to remediate a site as a special industrial area shall file a Notice of Intent to Remediate with the Department. A Notice of Intent to Remediate filed with the Department provides a brief description of the location of the site, a list of known or suspected contaminants at the site, the proposed remediation measures for the site and a description of the intended future use of the site. A person who demonstrates attainment of one or a combination of cleanup standards or receives approval of a special industrial area remediation identified under the act will be relieved of further liability for the remediation of the site for contamination identified in reports submitted to and approved by the Department. Furthermore, the person shall not be subject to citizen suits or other contribution actions brought by responsible persons not participating in the remediation.

 Under sections 304(n)(1)(ii) and 305(c)(2) of the act, there is a 30-day public and municipal comment period for sites proposed for remediation using a site-specific standard, in whole or in part, and for sites remediated as a special industrial area. This period begins when a summary of the Notice of Intent to Remediate is published in a newspaper of general circulation in the area of the site. For the following site, proposed for remediation to a site-specific standard or as a special industrial area, the municipality, within which the site is located, may request to be involved in the development of the remediation and reuse plans for the site if the request is made within 30 days of the date specified as follows. During this comment period, the municipality may request that the person identified as the remediator of the site develop and implement a public involvement plan. Requests to be involved and comments should be directed to the remediator of the site.

 For further information concerning the content of a Notice of Intent to Remediate, contact the environmental cleanup program manager in the Department Regional Office listed before the notice. If information concerning this acknowledgment is required in an alternative form, contact the community relations coordinator at the appropriate regional office. TDD users may telephone the Department through the Pennsylvania AT&T Relay Service at (800) 654-5984.

PLAN APPROVAL AND OPERATING PERMIT APPLICATIONS

 The Department has developed an ''integrated'' plan approval, State Operating Permit and Title V Operating Permit program. This integrated approach is designed to make the permitting process more efficient for the Department, the regulated community and the general public. This approach allows the owner or operator of a facility to submit permitting documents relevant to its application for all sources related to a facility or a proposed project, affords an opportunity for public input, and provides for a decision on the issuance of the necessary permits.

 The Department received applications for Plan Approvals or Operating Permits from the following facilities.

 Copies of the application, the Department's analysis, all pertinent documents used in the evaluation of the application and subsequently prepared proposed plan approvals/operating permits are available for public review during normal business hours at the appropriate Department Regional Office. Appointments for scheduling a review must be made by calling the appropriate Department Regional Office. The address and phone number of the Regional Office is listed before the application notices.

 Persons wishing to file a written protest or provide comments or additional information, which they believe should be considered prior to the issuance of a permit, may submit the information to the Department's Regional Office. A 30-day comment period from the date of this publication will exist for the submission of comments, protests and information. Each submission must contain the name, address and telephone number of the person submitting the comments, identification of the proposed Plan Approval/Operating Permit including the permit number and a concise statement regarding the relevancy of the information or objections to issuance of the permit.

 A person wishing to request a hearing may do so during the 30-day comment period. A public hearing may be held, if the Department, in its discretion, decides that a hearing is warranted based on the information received. Persons submitting comments or requesting a hearing will be notified of the decision to hold a hearing by publication in the newspaper, the Pennsylvania Bulletin or by telephone, when the Department determines this type of notification is sufficient. Requests for a public hearing and any relevant information should be directed to the appropriate Department Regional Office.

 Permits issued to the owners or operators of sources subject to 25 Pa. Code Chapter 127, Subchapter D or E, or located within a Title V facility or subject to 25 Pa. Code § 129.51(a) or permits issued for sources with limitations on their potential to emit used to avoid otherwise applicable Federal requirements may be submitted to the United States Environmental Protection Agency for review and approval as a revision to the State Implementation Plan. Final Plan Approvals and Operating Permits will contain terms and conditions to ensure that the sources are constructed and operating in compliance with applicable requirements in the Air Pollution Control Act (35 P.S. §§ 4001—4015), 25 Pa. Code Chapters 121—145, the Federal Clean Air Act (42 U.S.C.A. §§ 7401—7671q) and regulations adopted under the Federal Clean Air Act.

 Persons with a disability who wish to comment and require an auxiliary aid, service or other accommodation to participate should contact the regional office listed before the application. TDD users may contact the Department through the Pennsylvania AT&T Relay Service at (800) 654-5984.

The proposed project is subject to the Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) of 40 CFR 52.21, the Nonattainment New Source Review (NNSR) regulations of 25 Pa. Code §§ 127.201—127.218, and the Best Available Technology (BAT) requirements of 25 Pa. Code §§ 127.1 and 127.12. The facility's total particulate matter (PM) including PM10 and PM2.5, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide and sulfuric acid mist emissions are subject to the PSD requirements. The facility's nitrogen oxides emissions are also subject to the NNSR requirements. The Department has determined that the proposed levels of the air contaminant emissions satisfy Best Available Control Technology (BACT) and Lowest Achievable Emission Rate (LAER) requirements as well as the Department's BAT requirements.

 The facility is also subject to the following: 40 CFR Part 64, Compliance Assurance Monitoring; 40 CFR Part 72, Acid Rain Program; 40 CFR Part 97, Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR); 40 CFR Part 98, Mandatory Greenhouse Gas Reporting; 40 CFR Part 60 Subpart Dc—Standards of Performance for Small Industrial-Commercial-Institutional Steam Generating Units; 40 CFR Part 60 Subpart IIII—Standards of Performance for Stationary Compression Ignition Internal Combustion Engines; 40 CFR Part 60 Subpart KKKK—Standards of Performance for Stationary Combustion Turbines; 40 CFR Part 60 Subpart TTTT—Standards of Performance for Greenhouse Gas Emissions for Electric Utility Generating Units; 40 CFR Part 63 Subpart ZZZZ—National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Stationary Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines.

 ESC Tioga County Power, LLC (ESC) has conducted air quality analyses using air dispersion modeling which satisfy the requirements of the Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) regulations codified in 40 CFR 52.21 and 25 Pa. Code § 127.83.

 In accordance with 40 CFR 52.21(k)—(n), ESC conducted air quality analyses of emissions of carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen oxides (NOx), particulate matter less than or equal to 2.5 micrometers in diameter (PM-2.5), and particulate matter less than or equal to 10 micrometers in diameter (PM-10) for its proposed facility. ESC's source impact analyses demonstrate that emissions from its facility would not cause or contribute to air pollution in violation of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards for CO, nitrogen dioxide (NO2), PM-2.5, or PM-10. Additionally, ESC's source impact analyses demonstrate that emissions from its facility would not cause or contribute to air pollution in violation of the Class II or Class I PSD increments for NO2, PM-2.5, or PM-10.

 In accordance with 40 CFR 52.21(o), ESC provided additional impact analyses of the impairment to visibility, soils, and vegetation that would occur as a result of its facility and general commercial, residential, industrial, and other growth associated with its facility.

 In accordance with 40 CFR 52.21(p), written notice of ESC's proposed facility has been provided to the Federal Land Managers of nearby Federal Class I areas as well as initial screening calculations to demonstrate that emissions from its facility would not adversely impact air quality related values and visibility in nearby Federal Class I areas.

 In accordance with the public notice requirements in 25 Pa. Code § 127.45(b)(4), the degree of Class II and Class I PSD increment consumption expected to result from the operation of ESC's facility is provided in the following tables:
