Air Permitting Timeframes and Fees

On August 14, 2019, the Indiana Environmental Rules Board affirmed a decision by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) Commissioner to increase the Office of Air Quality (OAQ) Title V program fees by 27%.

Title V program fees include all fees from Part 70 sources under 326 IAC 2-7, FESOP sources under 326 IAC 2-8, and SSOA sources under 326 IAC 2-9. Increases to annual fees for these sources will be reflected on the annual fee invoice to be sent out in January 2020. Increases to other Title V program fees will be applied to applications postmarked on and after October 1, 2019. A rulemaking is in process to update the Title V program fees in 326 IAC 2-1.1-7.

Fees associated with other sources in the state (MSOP, Registrations, Exemptions, Permit by Rule (PBR)) are not affected by this action and will not change.

The table reflects the Title V Program fees increases approved by the Indiana Environmental Rules Board on August 14, 2019.

* A transition is a move from one permit type to another, based solely on a Permittee's choosing. A transition does not include physical and operational change, modification, or new construction. If a Permittee plans physical and operational change, modification, or new construction that requires a different level of permit, IDEM will issue a New Source Review/Construction Permit of the new Permit level. The deadline, Public Notice, proposal to U.S. EPA, and base fee are all determined by the New Source Review/Construction Permit.
