The above linked Application Dataset contains a list of applications for permits the District has received and is processing. Many types of equipment and processes require authorization from the Air Pollution Control District before installing, modifying, or operating (information on the types of operations and businesses that need this authorization can be found here).
There are 3 types of authorizations that are included in the Application Dataset. Most applications will be for equipment or operations that require an Authority to Construct and Permit to Operate, and will have “APP” in the Application Record ID.
Certain types of equipment do not have much impact on air quality, and therefore only require Registration, and will include “CER” in the Application Record ID.
Larger sources may also require a Federal Operating Permit known as Title V. Title V Applications have “APP” in the Application Record ID and will show the type of application in the Title V Permit Action Type column.
The District will accept public comments on any permit application
during the review process. This review process can take from a few
days for simple equipment and up to six months for more complicated
To comment on a specific application, please click on the Application Record ID within the dataset to submit your comment(s) via email. General comments can also be emailed to APCDEngineering@sdapcd.org. Additionally, certain applications will require public notifications and formal comment periods.
If you would like to view the application materials, please click the link at the far right of the dataset for the application you are interested in.
