Title V Permit Application Information & Comment Deadlines

Pursuant to Rule 216, Federal Part 70 Permits, of the San Luis Obispo County Air Pollution Control District Rules and Regulations, the Air Pollution Control Officer (APCO) has made a preliminary decision to grant a Federal Clean Air Title V permit for the Chicago Grade Landfill, which is located at 2290 Homestead Road, Templeton, California.  This proposed action will update the previous version of the permit; no increase in emissions is involved.

Written comments regarding the preliminary decision are requested by the District for a period of 30 days after publication of this notice and comments will receive due consideration before final action is taken.  A public hearing to receive comment on this proposed decision has not been scheduled, but one may be requested by writing to the APCO.

The District is also providing the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) with a 45-day review and objection period for this proposed decision.  If the USEPA does not object in writing, any person may petition the USEPA Administrator within 60 days after the expiration of the Administrator’s 45-day review period to make such objection.  Any such petition shall be based only on objections to the permit that were raised with reasonable specificity during the public comment period unless the petitioner demonstrates that it was impractical to raise such objections within such period or unless the grounds for such objection arose after such period.

The Application Number 6998 and the District’s Staff Statement of Basis Report, which sets forth the legal and factual basis of the proposed permit, are available for inspection electronically on the District’s website at www.slocleanair.org, or physically (hard copy) on weekdays between 8:00 a.m.-12 noon and 1:00-5:00 p.m. at the District's office, 3433 Roberto Court, San Luis Obispo, California by appointment only. Please call ahead to secure an appointment, as the District office is currently closed to walk-ins as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Written comments on the proposed decision or a request for public hearing may be emailed to info@slocleanair.org or mailed to:
