DEQ strongly encourages facilities to setup a pre-application meeting with their regional DEQ Air Quality staff, as well as CAO staff, to make certain all the required information, documents, and fees are submitted to ensure an efficient permitting process. The CAO Pre-Application AQ500 form, along with the New Source Consulting Fee, must be submitted to DEQ Financial Services - see the address below (it is also at the bottom of the form). Also submit an electronic copy of the AQ500 form to email@example.com.
