Permitting Advice & Guidelines


Permit Application Advice Documents

These documents are intended to help applicants prepare permit applications and certifications with a reduced amount of effort, yielding clearer and more accurate applications. We hope to steer new applicants around some common points of confusion and mistakes, allowing them to prepare applications which are complete on their first try.

We assume that the reader has a moderate level of knowledge in air pollution regulation procedures before they commence in writing a permit application. Taking the time to go over these guides should pay great dividends in time savings later on.
