Permit information

Air Operating Permit

This permit consolidates all of the state and federal air pollution control requirements that apply to a facility and are renewed on a regular basis. It includes conditions from existing permits that allowed construction or expanding operations that increased air pollution (Notice of Construction (NOC) Orders and Prevention of Significant Determination (PSD) permits) and all other relevant state and federal air regulations.

Notice of Construction Order and Prevention of Significant Deterioration Permits

These permits limit the ammount of air pollutants a business can emit. They are required before installing a new source of air pollution or modifying an existing source, and revised (modified) when there’s a change to any of the conditions.
