What action is the District taking?
The Louisville Metro Air Pollution Control District is announcing a public meeting on April 7, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. to present information and answer questions regarding
Summary of proposal
Because Louisville has been designated nonattainment by U.S. EPA for the 2015 ozone NAAQS, the District is required to implement a “Nonattainment New Source Review” (NNSR) program. The District is asking for feedback on the best approach to updating its implementation of Regulation 2.04, which is the District’s current NNSR program. The District is considering a range of options from minor updates to a larger over-haul of the rule to match a set of changes to corresponding federal regulations made by the U.S. EPA between 2002 and earlier this year known as “New Source Review Reform.” Updates to the federal rules include:
- Changes to how baseline emissions are calculated,
- The new “actual-to-projected-actual applicability test” in place of the “actual-to-potential test,”
- Addition of “Plantwide Applicability Limits (PALs),”
- Changes to “Project Aggregation,” and
- “Project Emissions Accounting.”
