Pursuant to Hawaii Revised Statutes (HRS), Chapter 342B-13 and Hawaii Administrative Rules (HAR), Chapter 11-60.1, the Department of Health, State of Hawaii (DOH), is requesting public comments on the following DRAFT PERMIT presently under review for:
Temporary Covered Source Permit (CSP) No. 0780-01-CT

Grace Pacific LLC
300 TPH Hot Mix Asphalt Plant
Located At: Various Temporary Sites, State of Hawaii
Initial Location: 91-920 Farrington Highway, Kapolei, Oahu
The DRAFT PERMIT is described as follows:
The issuance of Temporary CSP No. 0780-01-CT would grant conditional approval to Grace Pacific LLC to continue to operate a 300 ton per hour (TPH) Hot Mix Asphalt Plant. This facility is subject to 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 60, Subpart I – Standards of Performance for Hot Mix Asphalt Facilities. The 818 kW diesel engine generator (DEG) is subject to 40 CFR Part 60, Subpart IIII – Standards of Performance for Stationary Compression Ignition Internal Combustion Engines and 40 CFR Part 63, Subpart ZZZZ – National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Stationary Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines. The proposed modification to the plant’s operation is to increase the allowable maximum sulfur content for all permitted fuels burned in the drum mixer/dryer to 0.5% by weight. This will result in a net increase in SO2 emissions of 14.3 tons per year. This permit, if issued, will supersede CSP No. 0780-01-CT, issued on April 5, 2013, in its entirety.
