Public Invited To Comment On Draft Air Operating Permit – Olympic Panel Products, LLC
The Olympic Region Clean Air Agency (ORCAA) firmly believes in its motto, “Clean Air is Everyone’s Business.” As such, ORCAA seeks to keep everyone within our jurisdiction well informed about the actions—and proposed actions—we take.
Public comment is currently being accepted on a draft Air Operating Permit (AOP) for Olympic Panel Products, LLC (OPP) located in Shelton, Washington. The DRAFT AOP is available for review and comment. Title V of the Federal Clean Air Act requires AOPs for large sources. The permits help ensure a facility complies with all applicable air quality regulations and standards. The federal Clean Air Act requires AOPs be re-opened when new air requirements become applicable and to correct errors when necessary. OPP’s AOP is being revised to correct the reference to applicable federal requirements for boilers. This revision will not result in any change in emissions from OPP.
Copies of the Draft AOP (# 15RFC1127) and the associated Technical Support Document (TSD) are on file and available for review at the Shelton branch of the Timberland Public Library located at 710 W Alder Street in Shelton, and at ORCAA’s office in Olympia. The draft AOP and TSD are also accessible at www.orcaa.org.
Written comments on amended sections of the draft AOP and TSD may be submitted to: ORCAA, 2940 Limited Lane NW, Olympia, WA 98502 or at www.orcaa.org. Comments must be submitted by close of business on Friday, November 13, 2015. Only comments specifically in reference to the amended sections of the draft AOP and TSD may be considered by ORCAA, and comments should pertain to adequacy of assuring compliance with applicable air quality regulations and standards. Any concerned party may request a public hearing within the specified public comment period. The request should include information to justify the need for a public hearing. If there is significant public interest, ORCAA will hold a public hearing.
