Operating Permits

Public Input

The Public Participation Process

Title V Programs Provide the Public with Certain Opportunities:

  • Comment on and request a public hearing on draft permits,
  • Appeal Part 70 permits in State court and petition EPA to object to such permits,
  • Appeal EPA-issued permits to the Environmental Appeals Board and federal courts,
  • Track compliance by reviewing reports/certifications submitted by sources, and
  • Bring enforcement actions in civil court for permit noncompliance.

Detailed Explanation of such Opportunities (including differences between Parts 70 and 71) - The Proof is in the Permit: How to Make Sure a Facility in Your Community Gets an Effective Title V Air Pollution Permit (by NY PIRG and the Earth Day Coalition).  Also, the same document (En Español).
