    A review of this facility indicates Valley Queen Cheese Factory, Inc.

DENR, therefore, recommends the Board of Minerals and Environment issue a minor air quality operating permit to Valley Queen Cheese with conditions to ensure compliance with South Dakota Codified Laws (SDCL) 34A1 and the federal Clean Air Act.
