Public Meeting on the Proposed Federal Implementation Plan for Oil and Natural Gas Sources on the Uintah and Ouray Indian Reservation

DATE: February 6, 2020 from 1 to 5 p.m and again from 6 to 8 p.m.
LOCATION: Ute Indian Tribe Administration Offices Auditorium, 6964 East 1000 South, Fort Duchesne, UT 84026

EPA is proposing a reservation-specific Federal Implementation Plan (FIP) for oil and natural gas sources on the Indian country lands within the Uintah and Ouray Indian Reservation (U&O reservation) in Utah. This proposed rule would control emissions from new, modified, and existing oil and natural gas facilities on the Uintah & Ouray (U&O) Indian Reservation to address air quality in the Uinta Basin Ozone Nonattainment Area in northeast Utah. The proposed FIP would also continue the streamlined approach to authorize new and modified minor oil and natural gas production sources on the Reservation. Read the proposed plan.
