An Ohio non-profit utility has agreed to settle alleged Clean Air Act New Source Review (NSR) violations by paying a civil penalty of $850,000 and spending $15 million on an environmental mitigation project. U.S. v. Am. Mun. Power, No. N/A (S.D. Ohio lodged 05/18/10). As part of the settlement, the company has agreed to permanently retire its Richard H. Gorsuch Station coal-fired power plant near Marietta, Ohio. Until the plant is closed on December 3, 2012, the company will implement interim sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide limits at the plant. The company will also enhance pollution controls to reduce particulate matter emissions. The $15 million will be spent on an energy efficiency project to benefit the environment and mitigate the adverse effects of the alleged violations. The project will provide energy efficiency services in lighting, refrigerator replacement and removal, and installation of building heating and cooling systems to all of the municipalities and their customers served by the Gorsuch Station. The settlement is subject to a 30-day public comment period and final court approval. See DOJ Press Release, May 18, 2010.
