A list of all the permits currently under review for the town of Pownal is available online, with links to information on each permit type. Currently, Beaver Wood Energy has applied for four permits:
Beaver Wood Energy also makes all of its permit filings available online under the resources section of their website.

Beaver Wood Energy does not currently have any permits pending for Air Quality. However, it is likely that an air permit will eventually be required from the Department of Environmental Conservation. An overview of air quality permitting is available online. 

One question being considered for the Beaver Wood Energy proposal is whether an Act 250 permit will be required. It is important to note that, while Department of Environmental Conservation permits may be applied for as part of proving compliance with Act 250, these are separate processes. Act 250 is administered by District Environmental Commissions, governed by the Natural Resources Board. Act 250 information will be updated after the Public Service Board issues its ruling.
