Update: Environmental Justice Summary Requirement for Air Quality Regulation 3
Starting July 15, 2023, all applicable permit applicants must submit an Environmental Justice Summary prior to submitting their permit application. The Air Pollution Control Division’s Environmental Justice Report Tool for Air Quality Regulation 3 is designed for permit applicants to use when implementing the Disproportionately Impacted (DI) Community Permitting Rule. The tool’s website has additional information including steps for submitting a complete environmental justice summary, user guide, FAQs, and more.
Questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org with “EJ Summary” and the facility name in the subject line. Small businesses can contact the Air Pollution Control Division’s Small Business Assistance Program for assistance: email@example.com.
Note: If a modeling determination (form APCD-114) is required for the emission source, you should submit your modeling determination request at the same time you submit the Environmental Justice Summary by following the instructions on form APCD-114. If you are unsure whether a modeling determination is required for this emission source, please consult the Air Pollution Control Division’s Air Quality Modeling Guidance for Permits website.
If your source (equipment) type is not listed below, please use the General Air Pollutant Emission Notice form. A guidance document is available for each form.
