Plant Washington Air Pollution Permits Issued

August 29, 2011 - After successfully challenging the air quality permit for Plant Washington, the state was forced to revise the permit. The state environmental agency redrafted the permit, and GreenLaw submitted extensive comments on the air permit in our efforts to continue to hold the line against this ill-advised coal plant.

The comments can be viewed here.

The proposed permit may be viewed here.

The deadline for written comments was August 29, 2011. After the comment period has expired, the EPD will consider comments, make any necessary changes resulting from comments received, and make a decision on the Permit Amendment. Copies of the Permit Amendment, comments received, EPD's responses to comments, and any other relevant information will then be made available for public review at the office of the Air Protection Branch, as well as at the internet address: epdcomments@dnr.state.ga.us.
