Notice is given to the public, according to Chapter 14 of Nebraska Administrative Code Title 129 - Nebraska Air Quality Regulations, that the Department is proposing to issue a construction permit to Burgess Well Company, (FID 27639) a manufacturer of a filament-wound reinforced plastic pipe (Standard Industrial Classification code 3089) for requesting federally enforceable limits to below Class I and major hazardous air pollutant thresholds for the facility located at 724 East Highway 6, Minden, Kearney County, Nebraska.

Kearney County meets the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for those pollutants subject to a NAAQS and is expected to continue in that status. No impact is anticipated on habitat for any rare or threatened species.

Monitoring and recordkeeping of the styrene, specific gravity and the gallons used are required.
