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

July 1, 2024, 12 a.m. - July 18, 2024, 11:59 p.m.

We propose to approve Franklin PUD's air quality notice of construction application (NOC) for rescission. We will hold a public comment period if one is requested.

Franklin PUD submitted a notice of construction application for their generators at the Oregon Street combustion turbine in Pasco. The generators are no longer operating and have been removed from the facility. Franklin PUD requests their air permit (“approval order”) be cancelled (rescinded).

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 July 18, 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.

Background

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.
