The Consent Decree addresses alleged violations of the Clean Air Act, 42 U.S.C. 7401–7671 et seq., and state and federal implementing regulations, which occurred at Units 1 and 2 of the Coronado Generating Station, a coal-fired power plant owned and operated by SRP in St. Johns, Arizona. The alleged violations arise from the construction of modifications to the power plant without obtaining appropriate permits under the Prevention of Significant Deterioration provisions of the Clean Air Act, 42 U.S.C. 7475, and Title V of the Act, 42 U.S.C. 7661 et seq., and without installing and applying best available control technology at the plant to control emissions of various air pollutants. The proposed Consent Decree would resolve the claims alleged in the Complaint filed in this matter in exchange for SRP’s commitment to perform injunctive relief including: (1) Installation of appropriate pollution control technology to control emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOX), sulfur dioxide (SO2), and particulate matter (PM)— including flue gas desulfurization devices to control SO2 on Units 1 and 2 at the Coronado Station and installation of selective catalytic reduction to control NOX on one of the two units; (2) meet specified emission rates or removal efficiencies for SO2, NOX, and PM; (3) comply with a plantwide emissions cap for NOX; and (4) perform $4 million worth of projects to mitigate the alleged effects of its past violations. The proposed Consent Decree also requires SRP to pay a $950,000 civil penalty.
