The DRAFT PERMITS are described as follows:
(1) The renewal of CSP No. 0079-01-C will grant conditional approval for operating an existing marketing terminal. Permitted tanks at the facility are equipped with internal floating roofs and tank seal systems to control volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The terminal has a bottom loading load rack with vapor combustion system for additional VOC control. The load rack is subject to 40 CFR, Part 60, Subpart XX, Standards of Performance for Bulk Gasoline Terminals. The draft permit, if approved, will supersede the current operating permit in its entirety.
(2) The significant modification of CSP No. 0249-02-C will grant conditional approval for removing the existing equipment (four  diesel engine generators and four  boilers) and adding a new boiler. The Prevention of Significant Deterioration permit (PSD) will no longer apply to this facility; however, New Source Performance Standard (NSPS), Subpart Dc Standards of Performance for Industrial- Commercial-Institutional Steam Generating Units, will apply to the new boiler. The net increase/decrease in emissions is shown below and is below significant levels:
Previous Actual Emissions (tpy) New
2 Yr Emissions Net 1 (+/-) Increase
Pollutant 2003 2004 Average (tpy) (tpy) (tpy)
SO2 41.82 31.70 36.76 28.30 -8.46 40
NOx 142.97 76.20 109.59 12.54 -97.05 40
CO 69.48 36.20 52.84 6.31 -46.53 100
PM 26.52 20.00 23.26 13.69 -9.57 25

VOC 7.16 3.70 5.43 0.68 -4.75 40
Note: 1Net is the difference of the new potential minus the previous 2-yr average.
Example Calc: 12.54 tpy – 109.59 tpy = -97.05 tpy NOx
The draft permit, if approved, will supersede the current operating permit in its entirety.
