- What is the purpose of this permit? This construction permit action is to install a new coal radial stacker to replace an existing coal radial stacker.
- Will this permit increase pollution? Construction Permit C-0127-22-0043-V will not increase particulate matter (PM) emissions as the capacity of the new coal radial stacker is the same as the existing coal radial stacker.
- Does this facility have a history of non-compliance? There was an alleged violation concerning excess sulfuric acid emissions resolved by Consent Decree (3:20-cv-00542-CRS) through construction permit number C-0127-22-0038-V. There are no records of any other violations of the terms of the present or prior construction or operating permits.

The Draft Permit details the application of these rules to the equipment and includes the monitoring, recordkeeping, and reporting that the District believes is necessary to demonstrate compliance.
