Air Pollution Control District Proposed Permit
Notice of Action on a Title V Operating Permit
The Louisville Metro Air Pollution Control District (District) proposes to issue an operating permit for LG&E Zorn Generating Station (peak load electrical generating station), 3001 Upper River Road, in accordance with Regulation 2.16. This is a standard permit renewal. The 30-day public comment period starts November 8, 2018, and ends on December 8, 2018. A public hearing may be scheduled if the District determines that there are germane, unresolved issues or substantial public interest, in accordance with Regulation 2.07.
Drafts of the permit and summary are available at the District office, 701 W. Ormsby Avenue, Suite 303, Louisville, between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, by calling Matt King at (502) 574-6000, emailing airpermits @ louisvilleky.gov, or at the following website: http://www.louisvilleky.gov/APCD/docket. Copies of the application are available upon request. Written comments will be accepted at airpermits @ louisvilleky.gov until midnight or at the District office until 5:00 p.m. on December 8, 2018.
EPA has agreed to treat this draft Title V permit as a proposed Title V permit and to perform its 45-day review provided by the law and regulations concurrently with the public notice period. Although EPA’s 45-day review period will be performed concurrently with the public comment period, the deadline for submitting a citizen petition to object to the EPA Administrator will be determined as if EPA’s 45-day review period is performed after the public comment period has ended (i.e., sequentially).
The status regarding EPA’s 45-day review of this project and the deadline for submitting a citizen petition can be found at the following website address: https://www.epa.gov/caa-permitting/clean-air-act-permitting-kentucky.
