Type: Notice
Date: 2014-08-14
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
In accordance with section 113(g) of the Clean Air Act, as amended (``Act''), notice is hereby given of a proposed settlement agreement to address lawsuits filed by WildEarth Guardians and National Parks Conservation Association (``NCPA'') (collectively ``Petitioners'') in the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit: WildEarth Guardians v. EPA, No. 13-9520 (10th Cir.) and National Parks Conservation Association v. EPA, No. 13-9525 (10th Cir.). On February 25, 2013, WildEarth Guardians filed a petition for review challenging EPA's approval of the Colorado regional haze SIP. Specifically, WildEarth Guardians challenged EPA's approval of certain BART and reasonable progress determinations for Units 1, 2, and 3 of the Craig Generating Station; Units 1 and 2 of the Comanche Power Station; Boilers 4 and 5 of the Colorado Energy Nations Company, LLLP facility at the Coors Brewery in Golden, Colorado; and the time by which the Colorado regional haze SIP required emission limits to be met at the these facilities. On March 1, 2013, NPCA filed a petition for review challenging EPA's approval of the NOX emission limits for Craig Units 1, 2, and 3. The proposed settlement agreement seeks to resolve all of Petitioners' claims regarding the Craig Generating Station and establishes deadlines for the State of Colorado to submit a SIP revision to EPA and for EPA to take action on that SIP revision.
