There is a one month public comment period, with comments due on April
23, 2012. “Any person may request a public hearing by submitting a
written request that explains the party’s interest and the reasons why a
hearing is warranted.”

Comments on the draft permit should address, but need not be limited
to, the permit conditions and the facility’s compliance with federal
and state air pollution laws, including: (1) the National and State
Ambient Air Quality Standards; and (2) HRS, Chapter 342B and HAR,
Chapter 11-60.1.

This facility is the second most polluting for air emissions in the
state of Hawaii.
