Hearing Cancelled on Air Implementation Plan Revisions


Sept. 5, 2013 -- NDEQ has cancelled a hearing that had been tentatively scheduled for September 9, 2013 related to proposed amendments to the Nebraska State Implementation Plan filed with the Environmental Protection Agency. The proposed amendments would incorporate revised regulations of the Lincoln-Lancaster County Air Pollution Control Program Regulations and Standards which were adopted in June, 2012.

In a public notice issued July 31, NDEQ indicated that it would hold a public hearing only if a request to the agency was received by Sept. 2, 2013. There were no requests for a public hearing, so it is therefore cancelled.

The public comment period remains open until 5 p.m. Central Time on September 9, 2013. Any comments received during this comment period will be considered prior to the submission to EPA.

A summary of the proposed revisions is available on the NDEQ website under “Public Notices.” Further inquiries may be made at (402) 471-2189 or at ndeq.airquality@nebraska.gov.
