DEQ Requests Comments on Changes to their Title V
Federal Air Operating Permit
The Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has conducted a preliminary review of this application and is providing an opportunity for public comment. Activity at the facility consists of the operation of a laminated fiberglass manufacturing facility. The Environmental Quality Commission adopted revised rules that changed opacity standards, particulate matter standards, and other rule changes; therefore, DEQ is reopening Fiber-Fab’s air quality permit for cause. More information on this facility’s emissions of air pollutants is contained in the review report.
The application, draft permit, review report, and relevant information are available for public review, by appointment, at DEQ’s Western Region-Salem Office, 4026 Fairview Industrial Drive SE, Salem, Oregon, by calling (503) 378-8240. To obtain a copy of the draft permit call Patty Hamman at (503) 378-5305.
Written comments must be received no later than April 27, 2016, and may be submitted to the DEQ office processing the permit:
Department of Environmental Quality
Patty Hamman/Air Quality Section
4026 Fairview Industrial Drive SE
Salem, OR 97302
If written requests from 10 persons, or an organization representing at least 10 persons, are received on this application, DEQ will provide a public hearing. Requests for hearing need to clearly identify the air quality concerns about the draft permit. Requests for hearing must be in writing and must be received by April 27, 2016.
The Department will review all information received during the public review period. Following this review, the permit may be modified. The proposed permit will then be forwarded to EPA for comment prior to issuance.
