The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has a draft Clean Air Act “Non-Title V” operating permit revision for Mickelsen Construction, Inc. (Mickelsen).

This Non-Title V operating permit is being revised and issued in accordance with 40 CFR 49.139. This permit creates emission limits that allows Mickelsen to be treated as a minor source of air pollution and thereby avoid permitting requirements that apply to major sources of air pollution (e.g. Prevention of Significant Deterioration and Nonattainment New Source Review construction permitting programs and Title V operating permit program). The permit approves operation of this stationary source within the Fort Hall Reservation. This permit revision primarily adds production and operational limits to the existing permit which will limit the total amount of hot mix asphalt and aggregate produced on an annual basis.

Because Mickelsen operates within the geographical boundaries of this reservation and because the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes currently do not have an EPA-approved air quality permitting program, it is the EPA’s responsibility to issue the permit revision to this company.

Will there be a public Hearing?

You can request a public hearing. Requests for a hearing must be received in writing by the EPA at any of the contact addresses listed below on or before the end of the comment period and must contain your reasons for requesting a hearing. If a hearing is held, the comment period will be extended through the date of the hearing.
