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



Notice is hereby given that Marriott Wardman Park Hotel 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 three 29.29 MMBTU/hr dual fuel (natural gas and No. 4 fuel oil) boilers, three 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 William Scott Johnson, Director of Engineering, at 202-328-5681.

With the potential to emit approximately 76 tons per year of nitrogen oxides and 407 tons per year of sulfur dioxide, the facility has the potential to emit greater than the District’s major source thresholds of 25 tons per year of nitrogen oxides and 100 tons per year of sulfur dioxide.  Therefore, the facility is classified as a major source of air pollution and is subject to 20 DCMR Chapter 3.

The District Department of the Environment (DDOE) 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 #025-R2 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 District Department of the Environment, 1200 First Street NE, 5th Floor, Washington DC 20002.  Copies of the draft permit and a fact sheet are available at http://ddoe.dc.gov/service/public-notices-hearings.

A public hearing on this permitting action will not be held unless DDOE 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, DDOE Air Quality Division, 1200 First Street NE, 5th Floor, Washington DC 20002.  Questions about this permitting action should also be directed to Stephen S. Ours at (202) 535-1747 or [email protected].  Comments or hearing requests will not be accepted after April 22, 2013.
