Hermitage Air Quality Permit Consulting

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PA DEP) issued the Hermitage Municipal Authority (HMA) an air quality plan approval permit for the installation and operation of the Authority’s combined heat and power (CHP) unit, startup boiler, and emergency generator. Subsequently, regular stack emissions testing and data records of daily operations were required to ensure air quality levels met PA DEP’s strict air emission limits.

Using our extensive knowledge of both air quality and HMA’s specific operations, RETTEW was able to guide HMA through the complex compliance requirements for this particular equipment. Our team also closely coordinated the installation of stack extensions with on-site technicians for the emissions testing. RETTEW’s efforts culminated in the development of a comprehensive emissions tracking program to automate daily, monthly, and annual operational parameters that enable the Authority to maintain accurate emission records. With our help, the Authority saved approximately $15,000 on stack testing activities, lowered stack emissions to appropriate levels, provided site officials with a thorough understanding of permit requirements, and developed a unique program that greatly reduces the possibility of non-compliance issues and costly PA DEP regulatory fines and penalties.
