  1. What is the purpose of this permit?  This construction project is to replace one of the existing parts washers in emission unit UMSC with a fully enclosed heated parts washer, without a secondary reservoir.

  2. Will this permit increase pollution? Construction Permit C-0011-21-0043-V will reduce pollution as the new equipment will potentially have less Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) emissions than the existing equipment. The potential VOC emissions of the existing equipment is 140 pounds per year and the potential emissions of the replacement equipment is 60 pounds year.
  3. Does this facility have a history of non-compliance?  The last notice of violation was May of 2018. An agreed board order (ABO) was issued. The violation was related to exceedances of the company’s Environmental Acceptability Demonstration (EA Demo). See pages 6 and 7 of the Statement of Basis.
  4. Where can I find out more? Additional information, including equipment descriptions, potential emissions, and applicable rules, are summarized in the Statement of Basis. The Draft Permit details the application of these rules to the equipment and includes the monitoring, recordkeeping, and reporting that the District believes is necessary to demonstrate compliance.
