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 draft Air Operating Permit (AOP) Renewal for the Simpson Door Company (Simpson Door) manufacturing plant located in McCleary, Washington. Simpson Door is a wood door manufacturing plant located at 400 Simpson Avenue, McCleary, WA. The plant produces wood doors and has been in existence since the early 1940s. Simpson Door requires an AOP because it has the potential to emit over 100 tons per year of particulate air pollution. AOPs are required under the Washington Clean Air Act and are designed to help ensure compliance with applicable air quality regulations and standards. This will be the fourth renewal of the AOP for the Simpson Door plant.
Copies of the permit application, draft AOP and associated Technical Support Document (TSD) are on file (linked below) at the McCleary Timberland Public Library, 121 South 4th Street, McCleary, WA, and at ORCAA’s office in Olympia.
Written comments on the draft AOP and TSD may be submitted to ORCAA at the following address: ORCAA, 2940 Limited Lane NW, Olympia, WA 98502. Comments may also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Comments will be accepted up to 4:30 p.m. on Friday, June 29, 2018. Comments should pertain to adequacy of the draft AOP and TSD in assuring compliance with applicable air quality regulations and standards. Any concerned party may request a public hearing within the specified public comment period. The request should include information to justify the need for a public hearing. If there is significant public interest, ORCAA will hold a public hearing.
