Preliminary Findings Regarding a
Significant Source Modification a
Part 70 Significant Permit Modification
for Explorer Van, Inc. in Kosciusko County
Significant Source Modification No. 085-32814-00074
Significant Permit Modification No. 085-32819-00074
    The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) has received an application from Explorer Van, Inc. located at U.S. 30 West and Fox Farm Road North, Warsaw, Indiana 46581 for a significant modification of its Part 70 Operating Permit No. T085-28884-00074 issued on November 29, 2010.  If approved by IDEM’s Office of Air Quality (OAQ), this proposed modification would allow Explorer Van, Inc. to make certain changes at its existing stationary motor vehicles parts and accessories manufacturing operations.  Explorer Van, Inc. has applied to install two new units for the production of van roof tops.
    The applicant intends to construct and operate new equipment that will emit air pollutants; therefore, the permit contains new or different permit conditions. In addition, some conditions from previously issued permits/approvals have been corrected, changed or removed.  These corrections, changes, and removals may include Title I changes. IDEM has reviewed this application, and has developed preliminary findings, consisting of a draft permit and several supporting documents, that would allow the applicant to make this change.  
    A copy of the permit application and IDEM’s preliminary findings are available at:
    Warsaw Community Public Library
    310 Main St.
    Warsaw, IN 46580
    IDEM Northern Regional Office
    300 N. Michigan St., Suite 450
    South Bend, IN 46601
    A copy of the preliminary findings is available on the Internet at:
How can you participate in this process?
    The date that this notice is published in a newspaper marks the beginning of a 30-day public comment period.  If the 30th day of the comment period falls on a day when IDEM offices are closed for business, all comments must be postmarked or delivered in person on the next business day that IDEM is open.
    You may request that IDEM hold a public hearing about this draft permit.  If adverse comments concerning the air pollution impact of this draft permit are received, with a request for a public hearing, IDEM will decide whether or not to hold a public hearing.  IDEM could also decide to hold a public meeting instead of, or in addition to, a public hearing. If a public hearing or meeting is held, IDEM will make a separate announcement of the date, time, and location of that hearing or meeting.  At a hearing, you would have an opportunity to submit written comments and make verbal comments.  At a meeting, you would have an opportunity to submit written comments, ask questions, and discuss any air pollution concerns with IDEM staff.
    Comments and supporting documentation, or a request for a public hearing should be sent in writing to IDEM at the address below.  If you comment via e-mail, please include your full U.S. mailing address so that you can be added to IDEM’s mailing list to receive notice of future action related to this permit.  If you do not want to comment at this time, but would like to receive notice of future action related to this permit application, please contact IDEM at the address below.  Please refer to Significant Source Modification No. 085-32814-00074 and Significant Permit Modification No. 085-32819-00074 in all correspondence.

What will happen after IDEM makes a decision?
    Following the end of the public comment period, IDEM will issue a Notice of Decision stating whether the permit has been issued or denied. If the permit is issued, it may be different than the draft permit because of comments that were received during the public comment period.  If comments are received during the public notice period, the final decision will include a document that summarizes the comments and IDEM’s response to those comments.  If you have submitted comments or have asked to be added to the mailing list, you will receive a Notice of the Decision.  The notice will provide details on how you may appeal IDEM’s decision, if you disagree with that decision.  The final decision will also be available on the Internet at the address indicated above, at the local library indicated above, and the IDEM public file room on the 12th floor of the Indiana Government Center North, 100 N. Senate Avenue, Indianapolis, Indiana 46204-2251 and the IDEM Northern Regional Office, 300 N. Michigan St., Suite 450, South Bend, IN 46601.
