Notice Requesting Public Comment on Draft Title V and Chapter 2 Air Quality Operating Permit - Marriott Wardman Park Hotel

Friday, July 26, 2019


Notice Requesting Public Comment on Draft Title V and Chapter 2 Air Quality Operating Permit for Wardman Hotel Owner LLC, Marriott Wardman Park Hotel

Notice is hereby given that Wardman Hotel Owner LLC has applied for a renewal of its 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 continue to operate three 29.29 MMBTU/hr dual fuel (natural gas and No. 2 fuel oil) boilers, two emergency generators, one diesel fire pump, a carpentry shop paint booth, and several miscellaneous/insignificant activities at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel, located at 2660 Woodley Road NW, Washington DC 20008. The contact person for the facility is Stan Hupert, Director of Engineering, at 202-328-5669.

The following is an estimate of overall potential emissions from the facility:



Potential Emissions

Sulfur Dioxide (SO2)


Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx)


Total Particulate Matter (PM Total)


Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)


Carbon Monoxide (CO)


With the potential to emit approximately 71 tons per year of nitrogen oxides, the facility has the potential to emit greater than the District’s major source threshold of 25 tons per year of oxides of nitrogen (NOx). Therefore, the facility is classified as a major source of air pollution and is subject to 20 DCMR Chapter 3.

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 No. 025-R3 has been prepared.

The application, the draft permit and associated Fact Sheet and Statement of Basis, 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 as attachments below.

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.

Comments on the draft permit and any request for a public hearing should be addressed to:


Stephen S. Ours  
Chief, Permitting Branch - Air Quality Division
