The Louisville Metro Air Pollution Control District (APCD) held a Public Meeting to discuss an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPR) for Regulation 5.15, Chemical Accident Prevention Provisions (also known as the “Risk Management Plan (RMP)” Rule) on Wednesday, July 15.  The meeting recording and presentation slides, the ANPR, and a Fact Sheet, can be reviewed at www.LouisvilleKy.gov/APCD/docket.

As a reminder, APCD is soliciting informal comment on adopting any of the full range of options from (1) the current minimum federal standards (see https://www.epa.gov/rmp/final-risk-management-program-rmp-reconsideration-rule for the most recent changes); to (2) the regulations as they stood prior to this past December (see https://www.epa.gov/rmp/final-amendments-risk-management-program-rmp-rule for information on the previous RMP Amendments Rule); or (3) any of the range of options from the 2016 proposal (available at the link above for the RMP Amendments Rule). The comment period ends on August 25. The District intends to host at least one additional public meeting before the close of the comment period.
