EPA Comment Letters on GHG Permitting Actions

This page contains a number of EPA written comments providing EPA's views on PSD permit applications and draft PSD permits that are being processed by State and local permitting authorities and that involve GHG emissions. Along with the other guidance and tools EPA has made available, we hope these comment letters will provide permit applicants and permitting authorities with additional information and analyses that will be useful for preparing and issuing permits involving GHGs. While many of these comment letters recommend improvements to the terms of a proposed permit and the supporting record, EPA's views on these matters were provided in the form of public comments to inform and assist State or local permitting authorities when reaching a final decision on each permit application at a later date. As a result, these letters do not constitute final agency action by EPA and do not have any binding affect on State or local permitting authorities or permit applicants. Since the permitting authority may modify its permitting decision and provide a response to EPA's comments, these comment letters will not necessarily reflect EPA's views on any subsequent action taken by a permitting authority on a particular application. This is not an exhaustive collection of EPA comment letters on permit actions.  In particular, starting in 2013, EPA is only posting the comment letters that reflect EPA’s views on topics that have not been covered in previous comment letters.
