“This permit action is for modification and operation of the facility. The permit action is a major amendment; therefore the draft/proposed permit has been placed on public notice. The MPCA is seeking the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) concurrent review of this draft/proposed permit and the EPA 45-day review period will begin with the 30-day public review period. The draft/proposed permit does not authorize any emissions increases.”
