This is a 30-day public comment period for the review of Simplot U.S. Food Group Holdings, LLC - Rainier Plant's (Simplot-Rainier) draft permit, technical support document, and notice of construction application with associated documents.

Simplot Rainier is proposing to construct a new potato processing facility located at 2107 Road O NE, in Moses Lake. Simplot - Rainier plans to install a wet electrostatic precipitator to control particulate matter from fryer equipment and sulfur controls for the biogas produced from their process water digester.

  • 33.6 tons per year of nitrogen oxides
  • 56.3 tons per year carbon monoxide
