factory haze and mountains

Posted by & filed under News.


Today the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the approval of the State of Utah’s regional haze plan to reduce emissions from PacifiCorp’s Hunter and Huntington power plants in Emery County, Utah. EPA is withdrawing a federal plan issued for these plants in 2016. EPA is approving Utah’s regional haze plan in its entirety, which includes providing credits for existing nitrogen oxide emissions control systems in place at PacifiCorp’s Hunter and Huntington power plants and reductions of sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide and particulate matter associated with the closure of the nearby Carbon power plant in 2015.

RQN attorney Blaine Rawson assisted the Firm’s long-time client PacifiCorp in litigation over the EPA’s 2016 plan and the development of the new 2020 regional haze plan that EPA approved today.
