Construction Permitting (ATI)

The Air Quality Division reviews designs and performance objectives for all sources of air contaminants to determine their likely compliance with state and federal and local requirements. Facilities meeting requirements are issued construction permits known as an Authorization to Install (ATI). New facilities must be designed to meet emissions standards and not result in a violation of ambient air quality standards. In the case of large new facilities, a more complicated analysis of proposed emissions is required. This process is called a "PSD Review".

Below is a link to a list of construction permit application forms. These application forms are required by the Air Quality Division prior to constructing or modifying equipment or control equipment. These application forms are similar to the DNR’s application forms. See the Instructions form for which forms will be required. Although not all forms will be required upon initial submittal, the Department reserves the right to require the facility to submit all upon request.
