Air quality notice of construction application – Opportunity to request a public comment period

May 8, 2024 - May 23, 2024, 11:59 p.m.

We propose to approve Darigold Pasco’s air quality notice of construction (NOC) application. We will hold a public comment period if one is requested.

Darigold submitted a notice of construction application for their facility located at 8201 North Railroad Avenue, in Pasco. They are requesting to replace three previously-permitted large (2,500 kW each) emergency generators with two smaller (450 kW each) emergency generators. All generators use natural gas as a fuel source. This change will result in reduced potential emissions for the facility.

Documents for review:

We determined this proposal satisfies the requirements of Chapter 173-400 WAC. We plan to approve the application. We will hold a public comment period on a draft air permit ("approval order") that includes this change if we receive a written request by May 23, 2024.

To request a public comment period, use one of the ways listed below.

To find out if there are more records for this project, contact our Public Records Office.

This notice was posted on May 8, 2024.


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.
