Puget Sound Clean Air Agency (the Agency) is seeking comments on draft Air Operating Permit (Permit No. 10645) for Atlantic Power dba Frederickson Power, located at 18610 50th Avenue East, Tacoma, WA 98446.

The draft Air Operating Permit is a renewal of the current Atlantic Power dba Frederickson Power permit that is already in force. Air Operating Permits expire every five years and need to be renewed. This renewal incorporates all the new compliance requirements that have come into effect for Atlantic Power dba Frederickson Power since the previous permit was issued and also includes all applicable requirements from the expiring permit.
