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

March 30, 2021 - April 14, 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.

Vaagen Timbers, located at 1245 N. Highway in Colville, submitted an air quality Notice of Construction application to install a "Cross Laminated Timber, Glulam, and Finger Jointed Lumber manufacturing facility." Particulate matter emissions from the facility are 1.56 tons per year PM10 and 1.53 tons per year PM2.5. 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 email or letter by April 14, 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.
