Air Permitting Decisions of Public Interest

On November 25, 2008, the Bureau of Air Quality began posting permitting decisions that have generated public interest because of potential health and/or environmental impacts. This was done to give the public additional access to these permitting decisions and to save resources. The information found on this page can also be viewed at DHEC's Central office at 2600 Bull Street, Columbia, SC 29201.

Permit decisions include one or more of the following documents:

  • Department Decision:  Summary of decision
  • Final Determination:  Determination of a project's Prevention of Significant Air Quality Deterioration (PSD) requirements and limits
  • Permit:  Conditions for constructing and operating the facility
  • Statement of Basis:  Summary of the project and its emissions, and explanation of regulatory applicability
  • Response to Comments:  Department’s written response to comments received during the public comment period
  • Transcript:  Verbatim record of public hearing
  • Written Comments:  Letters and e-mails received during public comment period

Additional documents or resources may also be included to detail specific information about the facility and/or its permitting decision process.

The procedure for appealing a permit decision before the Board of Health and Environmental Control is available here.
