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

Sept. 9, 2020 - Sept. 24, 2020, 11:59 p.m.

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

Bayer Western Production Co. purchased the Monsanto facility located at 776 South Booker Road in Othello. Bayer submitted an air quality Notice of Construction application, requesting a name change and transfer of the air quality permit, Approval Order No. 08AQ-E250. This change will not result in an increase in emissions from the facility. Ecology plans to approve the application. We will hold a public comment period on a draft approval order ("air permit") that includes this change only if a written request is received by Sept. 24, 2020.



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.
