Stone Quarrying, Crushing and Screening Facilities General Air Quality Permit Request for Coverage: US Silica - Parshall Transload Facility

This page contains documents related to our approval of US Silica's Request for Coverage under the General Air Quality Permit for New or Modified Minor Source Stone Quarrying, Crushing, and Screening (SQCS) Facilities in Indian Country for the Parshall Transload Facility on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation, near Makoti, North Dakota. The EPA approved US Silica's request for coverage on February 25, 2016.

*Note: According to 40 CFR 49.156(e)(6), the EPA's Approval of the Request for Coverage for the Project is a final agency action for purposes of judicial review, only for the issue of whether the Project is eligible for coverage under the SQCS General Permit. Any petition for review of this approval action must be filed in a timely manner with the EPA's Environmental Appeals Board (EAB) for the appropriate circuit in accordance with CAA section 307(b). In the event a petition for review is filed, construction cannot begin under this approval until the EAB petition(s) are resolved.*
