Public Invited to Comment
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 Notice of Construction Application from Interfor Pacific of Forks. Interfor proposes a voluntarily limit on emissions of hazardous air pollutants at their lumber mill in Forks.
ORCAA has assessed air quality implications of Interfor’s proposed emissions limit and concluded that compliance with applicable air regulations and standards will likely be maintained. On this basis, ORCAA’s Preliminary Determination is to approve Interfor’s NOC application.
Copies of ORCAA’s Preliminary Determination are on file and available for review at the Forks branch of the North Olympic Library System, located at 171 Forks Avenue South, and at ORCAA’s offices in Olympia and Port Angeles. ORCAA’s Preliminary Determination is also found here.
Comments may be submitted to ORCAA in writing. Written comments should be addressed to: ORCAA, 2940-B Limited Lane NW, Olympia, WA 98502, and will be accepted up to close of business on Friday, June 25, 2010.
