This is a 30-day public comment period for the review of Microsoft Columbia Data Center's draft permit and technical support documents.
Microsoft Corporation – Columbia Data Center is an existing data center with 40 diesel generators and two banks of cooling towers. Columbia is proposing to install six new emergency generators and is requesting to use renewable diesel as well as the use of standard diesel for all existing and new generators. Columbia plans to voluntarily install on the new generators, selective catalytic reduction controls for nitrogen oxides and diesel particulate filter controls for particulate matter. Emission increases from this project include 0.50 tons per year of nitrogen oxides, 0.78 tons per year carbon monoxide, 0.11 tons per year particulate matter, 0.11 tons per year volatile organic compounds and 0.01 tons per year of diesel engine exhaust particulate.
We determined this proposal satisfies the requirements of Chapter 173-400 WAC.
An online virtual public hearing will be held if we determine there is significant public interest. An online virtual public hearing is scheduled for July 18, 2022 at 6 pm . If no written requests for the online virtual public hearing are received by June 30, 2022, then the hearing will be cancelled.
