Notice Requesting Public Comment on Draft Title V and Chapter 2 Air Quality Operating Permit for Fort Myer Construction Corporation, Plant #2

Friday, August 21, 2015





Fort Myer Construction Corporation Plant #2

Notice is hereby given that Fort Myer Construction Corporation has applied for a Title V air quality permit pursuant to the requirements of Title 20 of the District of Columbia Municipal Regulations, Chapters 2 and 3 (20 DCMR Chapters 2 and 3) to operate a 95.63 million Btu per hour (MMBtu/hr) dual fuel fired burner; a 2.1 MMBtu/hr natural gas fired oil heater; a baghouse for operational emissions; various storage piles of rock and asphalt, incidental welding rod operations for repair of equipment and seven (7) aboveground fuel and asphalt production storage tanks associated with the production of paving asphaltic concrete at its Plant #2 facility located at 1155 W Street NE, Washington DC. The contact person for the facility is Ken Cucina, Plant Manager at (202) 636-9535.

With the potential to emit (PTE) approximately 35.6 tons per year (TPY) of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and 26.8 TPY of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), the source has the potential to emit greater than the District’s major source thresholds of 25 TPY of NOx and VOCs.  Additionally, the facility has the potential to emit approximately 148.9 TPY of carbon monoxide (CO), which exceeds the District’s major source threshold of 100 TPY of CO.  Therefore, the facility is classified as a major source of air pollution and is subject to 20 DCMR Chapter 3 and must obtain an operating permit under that regulation.

The Department of Energy and Environment (DOEE) has reviewed the permit application and related documents and has made a preliminary determination that the applicant meets all applicable air quality requirements promulgated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the District.  Therefore, draft permit #030-I2 has been prepared.

The application, the draft permit, and all other materials submitted by the applicant [except those entitled to confidential treatment under 20 DCMR 301.1(c)] considered in making this preliminary determination are available for public review during normal business hours at the offices of the Department of Energy and Environment, 1200 First Street NE, 5th Floor, Washington DC 20002. Copies of the draft permit and related fact sheet are available at http://doee.dc.gov.

A public hearing on this permitting action will not be held unless DOEE has received a request for such a hearing within 30 days of the publication of this notice.  Interested parties may also submit written comments on the permitting action.  Hearing requests or comments should be directed to Stephen S. Ours, DOEE Air Quality Division, 1200 First Street NE, 5th Floor, Washington DC 20002.  Questions about this permitting action should be directed to Olivia Achuko at (202) 535-2997 or [email protected].  No comments or hearing requests postmarked after September 21, 2015 will be accepted.
