Proposed Title V Operating Permit: LG&E Mill Creek Generating Station

April 21, 2017

Notice of Action on a Title V Operating Permit

                                                                                                                                                    The Louisville Metro Air Pollution Control District (District) proposes to revise an operating permit for LG&E Mill Creek Generating Station (Electric Energy Generating Facility), 14460 Dixie Highway, in accordance with Regulation 2.16. The 30-day public comment period starts April 23, 2017, and ends on May 23, 2017.  The significant revision is to incorporate Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR) applicable requirements. The listed item is the only part of the operating permit that is available for public comment. 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 are available at the District office, 701 West Ormsby Avenue, Suite 303, Louisville, between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, by calling Paul Aud 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 May 23, 2017.

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: http://www.epa.gov/caa-permitting/clean-air-act-permitting-kentucky
