This facility's application was reviewed by DAQ to determine compliance with air pollution regulations. The results of that review led to a preliminary determination that the project could be approved, and the air permit issued, if certain permit conditions are met.

DAQ will consider all public comments and other available information about the permit before deciding whether to issue the final permit, deny the permit or issue it with amended conditions.
