Permit determinations are a process whereby a facility may ascertain whether or not a permit to construct, modify or
relocate is necessary. Once a permit determination application is filled out and submitted, DAQ engineers will
decide within 30 days if further action is required. There are NO FEES connected with this process.

Permission to Commence Construction (Effective June 1, 2009)
Permission to Commence Construction (PCC) is to allow construction of any such alteration, expansion, modification or
new emissions unit in advance of permit issuance in accordance with 45CSR13 Section 16, for those permittees
hold an active West Virginia air quality permit issued under 45CSR13 at an existing source. However,
the person may
not operate any altered, expanded, modified or new emissions unit without first obtaining an air quality permit as
required by 45CSR13.
Before submitting a Permission To Commence Construction Application, the DAQ strongly
