State Air Permitting Rules

Permitting a New Glass Manufacturing Facility

When a client we have represented for fifteen years wanted to build a new glass manufacturing plant that it thought might generate local controversy, it turned to Beveridge & Diamond to help prepare its permit application. We helped the client navigate state air permitting rules and worked with state agency officials to ensure timely issuance of a draft permit.

When the draft permit was contested by local protesters, our client sought our assistance to protect its project. We defended challenges to the permit in state and federal court and before the Environmental Appeals Board (EAB). With a solid permit application as our predicate, we succeeded in quashing most of the litigation. The client settled remaining litigation, and the plant was built as scheduled.
