NDEQ Meetings to Discuss Proposed Changes to

State Air Regulations Relating to Greenhouse Gases

The Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality will host two information sessions on Sept. 15 to discuss proposed changes to the state’s Title 129 – Air Quality Regulations. The proposed changes would incorporate new federal requirements for facilities that emit greenhouse gases. The information sessions will also discuss how these changes may impact facilities in Nebraska.

NDEQ staff will provide background information on the federal rule and NDEQ’s proposal for incorporating the federal program into Title 129. The Department will also discuss the ramifications of becoming a major source, including what effect the new rule may have on emission fees and permitting actions. NDEQ staff will be available to take questions and suggestions.

Both meetings will be held on September 15. The times and locations are:

Grand Island -- 9 to 11 a.m., Midtown Holiday Inn, 2503 South Locust Street.

Lincoln -- 2 to 4 p.m., the Atrium, 1200 N Street, Second Floor Conference Room
