The fight for clean air

Posted By on Fri, May 9, 2008 at 3:02 PM

SWEPCO has begun ground work on a coal-fired power plant in Hempstead County, even though the Department of Environmental Quality hasn't completed action for an air (pollution) permit for the plant.

If the Audubon Society has its way, the state would restart the permit process with a new public notice because of deficiencies in SWEPCO's initial application. Complicated stuff is all here, but the short of it is that -- though the PSC went in the tank -- some environmental forces are fighting on against a technology other states have rejected, even in places not in dangerous proximity to priceless natural areas.
