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

June 5, 2024, 12 a.m. - June 21, 2024, 11:59 p.m.

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

Local Bounti submitted a notice of construction application for their greenhouse operations equipment:

  • Greenhouse heaters
  • Water heaters
  • Emergency generators

The equipment maintains the greenhouse temperature that helps grow leafy greens. The facility is located at 950 South Elm Avenue, in Pasco.

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 June 21, 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.
