From KMAS News-radio in Mason County:
Public Invited to Comment on Draft Air Permit
“Public comment is currently being accepted on a draft Air Operating Permit (AOP) for the Aquatic Company (Aquatic) located at 801 Northern Pacific in Yelm, Washington. This renewal process is pursuant to Title V of the federal Clean Air Act and Chapter 173-401 of the Washington Administrative Code. This is a draft of the AOP renewal that will be in effect for five years.
Aquatic, formerly Lasco Bathware Inc, is a reinforced plastics manufacturing facility that produces bathtubs, showers, spas and other bathware products. This will be the third renewal of the AOP for this facility. Aquatics Yelm facility requires an AOP because it has the potential to emit major quantities of volatile organic compounds as well as the compound styrene, which is a hazardous air pollutant.
