ADEQ Requests Reconsideration of Regional Haze Federal Implementation Plan

On November 22, 2016, the Attorney General filed a request on behalf of ADEQ for reconsideration of EPA’s Regional Haze Federal Implementation Plan for the State of Arkansas. Among other issues, ADEQ requests that EPA reconsider mandating the installation of certain controls on Entergy’s Independence facility based on 2015 data that shows the State is already exceeding its 2018 visibility improvement goal and reconsider allowing the use of EPA’s Cross State Air Pollution Rule to meet certain requirements under the Rule. In addition, ADEQ requests an administrative stay pending resolution of the issues presented in its request.
