The Iowa Department of Natural Resources continues to work towards rolling out an online system to submit air quality permit applications.

The online option, called Iowa EASY Air (Environmental Application System), can be used to submit air quality construction and operating (Title V) permit applications.

“We’re excited about Iowa EASY Air and the advantages it offers,” said Marnie Stein, project coordinator. “As we introduced EASY Air to testers last month, we heard many industry participants say how easy and intuitive it is to use the new system,” she added.

“I like it. I’m going to like having all the data in one place and not having to recreate it,” said Sara Kelley, Environmental Compliance Specialist with NV5.

Other industry representatives say using the online system could save significant time on each permit application.

With the input of 12 industry representatives, DNR produced a fact sheet, talking points and a sample news release which companies can use to explain the convenience and benefits of using EASY Air.

“I encourage facilities and consultants to share these products with their associations and co-workers,” Stein said. “From reducing data entry to cutting the time it takes to complete an application or pay the fees, we think companies that need a permit or permit modification will like this new product.”

Find the fact sheet and other products on the DNR Air Quality’s eServices webpage.
