Air Pollution Control District Proposed Permit

December 13, 2018

Notice of Action on a Title V Operating Permit

 

The Louisville Metro Air Pollution Control District (District) proposes to issue a renewed operating permit to Ford Motor Company – Kentucky Truck Plant (manufacture of automobiles, light- and medium-duty trucks), 3001 Chamberlain Lane, in accordance with Regulation 2.16. This action is being taken to allow for notification of the public to add requirements that were inadvertently left out of the previously drafted operating permit. The 30-day public comment period starts on December 15, 2018, and ends on January 14, 2019. 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 January 14, 2019.

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.
