Descriptions and Searchable Fields for Permit-by-Rule

General notes:

  • You must click the “Go” button to search the criteria you have entered/selected.
  • Combination searches are in the “and” mode. For example, typing “01-25” in the facility id field and “amp” in the name field will result in all facilities in Franklin County where the text “amp” appears somewhere in the facility name.
  • All search results columns can be sorted; just click on the column heading. Clicking on a column heading alternates between sorting ascending and descending across all search results. The default search return is by facility ID.
  • You can scroll through the search results list by selecting a subset of records from the pick list provided in the lower left area of the search results webpage.
  • You can download a Microsoft Excel list of all the search results by clicking on the “excel” link in the lower left area of the search results webpage.
  • The word “issued” in the context of these search pages is used as a general descriptor of an official version of a permit document as it works its way through various permit stages required by the underlying permitting regulations. So, for example, a “Draft Issued” permit can be used to submit comments, but cannot be relied upon as the basis to install or operate. Installation and/or operation is only legally authorized by a “Final Issued” permit.
