Ecology’s Air Quality Program is issuing an Air Operating Permit for D&L Foundry, located at 12970 Road 3 NE, Moses Lake, WA 98837. We expect to approve the draft permit and will accept written comments on this action through Nov. 9, 2020.

The D&L Foundry facility covers approximately 52 acres. Roughly half of this area is used to sort, melt, mold, grind, and clean iron and steel for new iron castings. The active portion of the foundry includes scrap pre-heaters, furnaces, sand handling systems, and dust collectors. D&L Foundry is a Title V source due to carbon monoxide (CO) emissions from the facility. The total CO is 214.42 tons per year for the facility. No other pollutant is above the Title V threshold. See the Statement of Basis for a breakdown of pollutant emissions.

Requests to hold a public hearing may be made within the comment period. The request must include the interest of the requestor and why a public hearing is warranted. If significant public interest exists, we may hold a hearing.

Commercial and industrial businesses that emit large amounts of air pollution are required to get an air operating permit. An air operating permit is a master document that lists all of the air pollution requirements that apply to a business or industry. We issue these permits along with other clean air agencies in Washington.
