The staff of the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality is holding a
public comment period until January 12, 1998, and a public hearing, if
requested, on January 14, 1998, to afford all interested citizens the
opportunity to comment on the Department's proposed conditional approval of
a Permit to Install application submitted by THOMPSON-MCCULLY COMPANY for
the installation and operation of a 650 tons per hour drum mix hot mix
asphalt facility to replace an existing 525 tons per hour hot mix asphalt
facility proposed for location at 11620 Whitmore Lake Road, Whitmore Lake,
Michigan. It has been preliminarily determined that the hot mix asphalt
facility will not violate any of the Department's rules nor the National
Ambient Air Quality Standards and will not consume any of the federal
Prevention of Significant Deterioration Air Quality Increments for
particulate, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen dioxide. The proposed project is
not subject to the federal Prevention of Significant Deterioration
requirements since it will not result in a significant net emissions
increase for particulate, sulfur dioxide, or nitrogen dioxide.

Copies of the Department's analysis and proposed permit conditions are
available for inspection at the following locations, or you may request a
copy be mailed to you by calling 517-373-7081.
