The 30-day public comment period for the proposed Memorandum of
Understanding for nitrogen oxides trading involving Wisconsin Electric
Power Company, the State of Michigan DEQ, and the State of Wisconsin DNR
will run until September 14, 2002.   The company is intending to comply
with the requirements of Michigan Air Pollution Control Rule 801 for the
control of nitrogen oxides at the Presque Isle Power Plant (Marquette)
through the emissions trading program.   The public hearing will be held
in Marquette on August 29, 2002 at 7:00 pm at Northern Michigan
University, but the comment period will remain open until September 14,

In a separate matter, the Wisconsin Electric Power Company and the
State of Wisconsin DNR are in the process of developing a draft
Environmental Cooperative Agreement which provides for reductions in
sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and mercury from the company's
Wisconsin power plants.   A fact sheet on that separate agreement can be
found at:
