Fort Greely Real Estate (Privatized Emission Units)



       1.      INTRODUCTION
This Technical Analysis Report (TAR) provides the Alaska Department of Environmental
Conservation’s (Department’s) basis for issuing Air Quality Control Minor Permit No
AQ1183MSS01 to .S. Army Garrison, Fort Greely (USAG-AK) for the purpose of dividing the
stationary source emission units to facilitate privatization of the utilities’ portion of the source.
The TAR for Permit No AQ0238MSS01 provides the legal and technical basis for the permit
requirements established in that permit, other than the emissions calculations which have been
revised based on the permit revision application from Fort Greely. The PTEs for the Real Estate
Stationary Source have been corrected in this TAR. This correction was based on discussion
with the Permittee during the public review comment period for Permit No AQ0238MSS01.
The conditions now in Permit AQ1183MSS01 were previously covered by Permit No
AQ0238MSS01. The April 14, 2008 TAR for Permit No AQ0238MSS01 provides the legal and
technical basis for the permit requirements carried over into this permit.
This permit is classified under both 18 AAC 50.508(6).


       2.      BACKGROUND

       2.1.    Application Description
The Utilities Privatization Project (UP), undertaken by USAG-AK as part of a Department of
Defense-wide initiative, includes this revision to the existing stationary source Fort Greely Real
Estate, SIC 65, Permit No AQ0238MSS01. UP is a process which, in part, transfers utility
systems for central heat and power from the Government to the contractor Doyon Utilities (DU).
The contractual transfer of services and property from the Garrison to DU includes a number of
emission units (EUs) in the Garrison's recently-disaggregated Real Estate stationary source.
Some EUs within this SIC code will remain under Garrison control; the Garrison will maintain
ownership of all emission units at this stationary source. The actual emission unit property
transfers are scheduled to occur August 15, 2008.
To accommodate UP, the Department has received applications to issue two minor permits for
the Real Estate stationary source to reflect the two operators within the source. Modifications to
Permit No AQ0238MSS01 were requested to remove DU EUs and their applicable terms and
conditions from that permit. These applications resulted in permits for emission units that will
be owned by DU on August 15, 2008 and those retained by the Garrison. The two permits
encompass the EU inventory and Potential to Emit (PTE) by operator with no changes in permit
terms and conditions and update applicable operator information. No further modifications are
being made to any permit conditions contained in Permit No AQ0238MSS01.
Table 1 provides the emission inventory under Permit No AQ1183MSS01. Table 2 provides
information regarding the emission units in Permit No AQ0238MSS02. These two tables
encompass the original stationary source Fort Greely Real Estate.

       2.2.    Project Emissions Summary
Potential to Emit for the entire Fort Greely Garrison Real Estate stationary source (both
privatized and non-privatized emission units) will not change due to increases in emissions from
any of the units. Emission factors have been updated through Permittee request and this update
approved by the Department. These emission factors (EF) updates result in a slight change in
PTE for two of the criteria pollutants listed in Table 3 below (which also links the two permits).
The stationary source has as a NOX limit on the stationary source of 208 tpy to avoid PSD Major
classification. The NOX limit for Permit No AQ1183MSS01 is 205.6 tpy, which is associated
with Permit No AQ0238MSS02 for purposes of determining the stationary source’s NOX
emission limit. The analysis found in the attached TAR for Permit No AQ0238MSS01 remains
accurate. All EFs are AP-42 factors with the exception of the EF for EU ID FGIC12.

Fort Greely Real Estate (Privatized Emission Units)

The non-privatized emission units covered by Permit AQ0238MSS02 and the privatized
emission units covered under this permit (AQ1183MSS01) are considered together for PSD
applicability. As shown in Table 3, the total stationary source emissions are below the PSD
Major stationary source threshold of 250 tpy.

           3. DEPARTMENT FINDINGS
Based on a review of the application, the Department finds that:
1.     The USAG Alaska are proposed to split existing Permit No AQ0238MSS01 into two
       permits. One (AQ0238MSS01) will cover the non-privitized emissin unit at Fort Greely
       Real Estate. The other (AQ1183MSS01) will cover the privatized emission units . The
       USAG AK expects to transfer of ownership and control of the privatized emission units to
       Doyon on August 15, 2008.. This TAR addresses the permit for the privatized emission
       units under the Fort Greely Real Estate stationary source.

2.     The application satisfies the applicable requirements set out in 18 AAC 50.540.

3.     The permit applicability analysis in Table 3 shows no increase of emission will occur.
4.     The TAR for Permit No AQ0238MSS01 describes the legal and technical basis of the
       permit requirements.

           4. PERMIT REQUIREMENTS
State regulations in 18 AAC 50.544 describe the elements that the Department must include in
minor permits.
The TAR for Permit No AQ0238MSS01 (dated April 14, 2008) provides the technical and
regulatory basis for the permit requirements carried over into Permit No AQ1183MSS01. There
have been no changes or updates to this discussion since the issuance of Permit No
AQ0238MSS01 (dated April 14, 2008), except as indicated in Table 4.
