Air Permit Comment period

The comment period on the revised draft Air Operating Permit for the Boise pulp and paper mill in Wallula ended January 9, 2017. For more information, please read the:

The first comment period on this draft permit took place October 30 - November 30, 2015. We held a second comment period because significant changes to the draft permit were made when we adopted additional federal rules. The statement of basis was also updated to address comments made by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
