Aug 1 2019 Air Pollution Control District Proposed Permit

            The Louisville Metro Air Pollution Control District (District) proposes to revise a FEDOOP operating permit for V.G. Reed & Sons, Inc. (lithographic printing and binding), 1002 South 12th Street, Louisville, KY 40210 in accordance with Regulation 2.17. This permit action removes the requirement to perform stack testing on VOC control devices. Also, this permit action removes the parts washer from the Insignificant Activity list and renamed IA3 emission unit to U3 emission unit, as this equipment is not an insignificant activity since it is not equipped with a secondary reservoir. This permit action additionally removes limits on greenhouse gases to comply with the U.S. Supreme Court’s June 2014 opinion in Utility Air Regulatory Group v. EPA.  The 30-day public comment period starts on August 2, 2019, and ends on September 2, 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.
