Illinois Environmental Protection Agency Public Notice Proposed Renewal of the Clean Air Act Permit Program Permit Natural Gas Pipeline Companies of America, Station 203 in Arcola Natural Gas Pipeline Companies of America has requested that the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (Illinois EPA) renew the Clean Air Act Permit Program (CAAPP) permit regulating air emissions from its Station 203 facility located at 360 East County Road 00 North in Arcola. The facility employs compressors to transfer gas from the main pipeline to underground storage. Based on its review of the application, the Illinois EPA has made a preliminary determination that the application meets the standards for issuance and has prepared a draft permit for public review. The Illinois EPA is accepting comments on the draft permit. Comments must be postmarked by midnight December 13, 2017. If sufficient interest is expressed in the draft permit, a hearing or other informational meeting may be held. Requests for information, comments, and questions should be directed to Rachel Stewart, Office of Community Relations, Illinois Environmental Protection Agency, 1021 N. Grand Ave. East PO. Box 19506, Springfield, Illinois 62794-9506, phone 217/782-2224, TDD phone number 217/782-9143, Rachel.Stewart@illinois.gov. The repositories for the draft permit documents are at the Illinois EPA’s offices at 2125 South First Street in Champaign, 217/278-5800, and 1021 North Grand Avenue East, Springfield, 217/782-7027 (please call ahead to assure that someone will be available to assist you). Copies of the draft permit and project summary may also be available at http://www.epa.illinois.gov/public-notices/boa-notices/index Copies of the documents will be made available upon request. The CAAPP is Illinois’ operating permit program for major sources of emissions, as required by Title V of the Clean Air Act (Act). The conditions of CAAPP permits are enforceable by the public, as well as by the USEPA and Illinois EPA. In addition to implementing Title V of the Act, CAAPP permits may contain “Title I Conditions,” i.e., conditions established under the permit programs for new and modified emission units, pursuant to Title I of the Act. The permit contains no T1 conditions that are being newly established or revised by this application. The beginning of this public comment period also serves as the beginning date of the USEPA 45 day review period, provided the USEPA does not seek a separate proposed period.
