Fwd: E-M:/ Top Michigan Toxic Air Emitters



Those with an interest in Lake Superior take note. Wisconsin Electric Power Company's (WEPCO) Presque Isle facility is 14th on this list with 1,340,768 pounds of toxic air emissions in 1998. [Stone Container makes the list as well - in 29th place].

As I posted previously, WEPCO's Presque Isle facility is up for a Renewable Operating permit. This is a Title V permit which governs criteria pollutants such as sulfur dioxide, particulate matter, carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds and nitrogen oxides. Anyone interested in the air quality in the Marquette area can review a draft Title V permit. You do not need to be a lawyer or an engineer to review this permit. Mostly, you need to have a desire to protect and improve air quality in the area. A new publication designed to assist citizens in reviewing Title V permits will soon be available at www.titlev.org In the meantime, if you have an interest in reviewing the Presque Isle permit, send an e-mail to defalco@nwf.org 

The TRI data noted above pertains to toxic emissions, which are separate from the criteria pollutants. For criteria pollutants, here's how the Presque Isle facility stacks up according to EPA data obtained at http://www.epa.gov/airsdata/

Pollutant                     Tons per year     Rank Among MI Power Plants
Carbon Monoxide       441                     7
Nitrogen Oxides          18,073                4
Sulfur Dioxide             19,003                6
Particulate Matter        629                    5
Volatile Organics         62                       6 

As you can see, this facility has room for improvement. Today, NWF requested a public hearing on the proposed permit and submitted preliminary comments on the proposed permit. If you would like to obtain a copy of those comments, send an email to defalco@nwf.org The hearing is tentatively set to take place on June 6 at 10 am at MDEQ offices at 1990 US-41 South, Marquette, Michigan.

For those working on power plant issues and air quality issues, this is an excellent opportunity to raise concerns, ask questions and demand clean air. NWF's recent report, The Toll From Coal outlines many of the harms to people and wildlife that coal-fired power plants cause. The report is available at http://nwf.org/nwf/climate/tollfromcoal/

Here is the results of today's EPA data release for 1998 on the toxic 
release inventory.

These are Michigan top airborne toxic emitters for 1998 above 40,000 lbs 
per year.

Unfortunately, EPA's dumbing down of their data release made it harder to
publish a lot of this data well and also omitted data on toxic discharges to
publicly operated sewage treatment plants.

Facility name, address, city and county are followed by the number of 
pounds of
toxics reported as an air emission in 1998
