: Proposed. We're preparing for environmental review.
PacWest Silicon is proposing to build a silica smelter near the city of Newport
in Pend Oreille County.
Our role in the project will be to:
- Conduct the environmental review process under the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA).
- Issue environmental permits consistent with federal and state laws and rules.
- Offer opportunities for public engagement.
No permit decisions can happen until after the environmental review is completed.
