VT Halter Marine Permitting Action

Air Title V Operating Permit

The Environmental Permits Division (EPD) of MDEQ has drafted an Air Title V Operating Permit for VT Halter Marine’s Pascagoula Operations located at 900 Bayou Casotte Parkway in Pascagoula.  VT Halter Marine is required to maintain a Title V Operating Permit because their potential air emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) exceed the Title V major source thresholds.  You can find a copy of the draft Title V Operating Permit, Information Relative to the Permit (also known as the Statement of Basis), and the application below.  If you have problems accessing this information or would like additional information, you may contact Carla Brown or request information through a Public Records Request.

The public comment period is a time during which anyone may review and comment on the permit.  MDEQ requests comments be related to the air permit and be as specific as possible.  The comment period begins July 8, 2020 and has been extended from 30 days to 45 days.  Therefore, comments should be sent no later than August 24, 2020.  We recommend comments be emailed to Carla Brown, though a hard copy may be sent to the following address:
