Air Quality Approval Order Rescission – Opportunity to request a public comment period

Dec. 2, 2019 - Dec. 17, 2019, 5 p.m.

Ecology is rescinding the air quality approval order for Cat Tracks near Mesa, as the company has ceased operations.

Ecology determined that Cat Tracks, Inc. has ceased operating at its rock quarry location, approximately two miles northeast of Mesa, next to the Burlington Northern railroad tracks. Ecology plans to rescind the air quality approval order issued in 2005. We will hold a public comment period on the draft rescission order only if a written request is received by Dec. 17, 2019.



A notice of construction permit is required before installing a new source of air pollution or modifying an existing source of air pollution.  This permit is sometimes called a "pre-construction permit" because a business must have one before starting construction or operating their business.

A notice of construction air permit limits the amount of air pollutants a business can emit.
