Idaho DEQ considering permit for Idaho National Laboratory
The permit would regulate the emissions from the facility — to be located between Arco, Idaho Falls and Highway 33, between Mud Lake and Arco — and would include an emissions cap. If the INL’s permit request is approved, the laboratory will be considered a minor facility and will not need a Tier I operating permit.
The permit application and other related materials are available online at the DEQ’s website, and the department will provide a 30-day public comment on the permit if one is requested by Jan. 4. The request can be made through email or mail.
