Air Quality Notice of Construction application – Opportunity to request a public comment period

Jan. 11, 2021 - Jan. 26, 2021, 11:59 p.m.

This is a public notice of an air quality permit revision. We will hold a public comment period if one is requested.

Dirt Hugger is an existing compost facility located at 111 East Rockland Road in Dallesport. The source has applied for revision of their existing air permit. The revision is to allow adjustment of product stockpiled and compost stored, based on operational workflow considerations. The application proposes to update the operational practices utilized by the source. The application does not propose any changes to the yearly emissions from the source. Ecology will hold a public comment period on this revision only if a written request is received by Jan. 26, 2021.


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.
