DEP Reminder: Public Hearing Aug. 14 In Lancaster For Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline Air Permit

The Department of Environmental Protection issued a reminder Thursday it will hold a public hearing on the Air Quality Plan Approval for the Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline on August 14 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Lancaster Farm and Home Center, 1383 Arcadia Road, Lancaster, PA 17601.
The Air Quality Plan Approval would allow transfer of 106 tons of nitrogen oxide (NOx) Emission Reduction Credits (ERCs) to offset construction activities in Lancaster County, which is considered a nonattainment area for NOx.

Oral testimony will be limited to three (3) minutes per person. Individuals wishing to offer testimony are asked to pre-register no later than August 11, 2017. Contact John Repetz at 717-705-4904, or send email to:  to register.
