Step 7

The Draft Permit & Public Notice

The public now has the opportunity to look at all the preliminary work and the draft permit. The DNR prepares a public notice and publishes it in the newspaper in the region of the facility. A copy of the draft permit and analysis can be found at the public library or downloaded*. This step gives the public a chance to comment on the permit. It is important to note, if a facility meets all the applicable air pollution limitations in the Natural Resources Code, and its emissions do not violate ambient air quality standards, then the DNR is obligated to issue the permit. The types of comments that the DNR can consider are limited to things such as the quality of the technical review, what pollutants might or might not be emitted, previous air issues at a facility, and problems that occurred at similar facilities. However, the public does not have the authority to stop a project.
