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

April 1, 2021 - April 16, 2021, 11:59 p.m.

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

McCain Foods, located at 2117 W. McManamon Road in Othello, submitted an air quality Notice of Construction application to install a temporary boiler from July 2021 to October 2021. The boiler will provide heat for incoming wastewater for the newly permited wastewater treatment plant. Ecology plans to approve the application. We will hold a public comment period on a draft approval order ("air permit") only if a written request is received by April 16, 2021.

View McCain's Notice of Construction application.


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.
