Permits Open For Public Comment

Address: 11323 Commando Rd W Ste 101, Everett, WA 98204

Comment Period: February 25, 2014 - March 26, 2014

What is the proposed permit?

Vaupell Industrial Plastics has requested to install four paint spray booths for the surface coating of aerospace plastic components.

The Agency has conducted the first tier review to analyze the impacts of Toxic Air Contaminants of the proposed project and found that the ethylbenzene ambient concentration is above the Acceptable source impact level (ASILs) listed in WAC 173- 460-150.

The applicant has submitted a petition to the Department of Ecology requesting a second tier review. Through second tier review, the Department of Ecology found that the increase in cancer risk attributable to Vaupell’s paint booths emissions alone is less than the maximum risk allowed by a second tier review of 10 in one million, and the noncancer hazard is acceptable.
