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

Plant-wide Emissions Summary (tons per year)

Potential Emissions

Oxides of Sulfur (SOx)

0.04

Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx)

51.09

Particulate Matter (PM/PM10)

Carbon Monoxide (CO)

Total Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs)

0.04

The Virginia Electric and Power Co. operations at Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall have the potential to emit approximately 51.09 tons per year of NOx. These potential emissions exceed the major source threshold in the District of 25 tons per year of NOx. As a result, the applicant is subject to the requirement to obtain a Chapter 3 permit. Additionally, even if the applicant’s operations alone did not exceed the major source threshold, because the applicant’s equipment at the site is in place to support operations of the Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall facility, which is a permitted major source itself, the applicant would be subject to the requirement to obtain a Chapter 3 permit.

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 renewal No. 043-R1 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 in the attachments section 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
