Methyl Bromide Log Fumigation Permitting Actions and Information

On the issue of methyl bromide in log fumigation use, the Division of Air Quality (DAQ) will recommend the Environmental Management Commission develop a rule to require log fumigation operations to take appropriate measures to safeguard public health. DAQ will also ask the Scientific Advisory Board to consider the need to establish an Acceptable Ambient Level for methyl bromide and designate it as a state Toxic Air Pollutant.
At the same time, DAQ will use its permitting responsibility to ensure the public’s safety.  

Malec Brothers Transport, LLC

As proposed, the Malec Brothers Transport, LLC facility would be the largest methyl bromide log fumigation site in the state.  DAQ has directed Malec Brothers Transport to provide more information on additional monitoring and safety measures. Specifically, they must provide a plan for capture and control technology and operation limits to safeguard public health. The application is on hold until the requested information is received and evaluated by DAQ permitting staff.
