      EPA will hold hearings in Chicago, Ill., Philadelphia, Penn., and
Research Triangle Park, N.C. to provide additional opportunity for
members
of the public to participate in open comment periods on several
proposals to
achieve deep reductions in emissions of air pollutants from power
plants.
The hearings, to be held concurrently on Feb. 25 and Feb. 26, will
specifically solicit public comment on the proposed Utility Mercury
Reductions and Interstate Air Quality Rules.  EPA announced both
proposed
rules in Dec. 2003.  The public hearings will be conducted at the
following
locations:

Where:            Hilton Chicago
            720 South Michigan Avenue Chicago, Ill. 60605
            312-922-4400

            Wyndham Philadelphia at Franklin Plaza
            17th and Race Streets
            Philadelphia, Pa.19103
            215-448-2000

            Holiday Inn Raleigh-Durham Airport
            4810 Old Page Road
            Research Triangle Park, N.C.
            919-941-6000

When:             On Wednesday, Feb. 25 and Thursday, Feb. 26, each
            hearing will start at 8 a.m and continue into the evening to
            accommodate individuals who wish to comment.

Contact:    John Millett, 202-564-7842 / millett.john@epa.gov

      The public comment period for these proposals remains open until
March
30.  Individuals may also submit comments electronically, by mail, by
facsimile or by hand delivery/courier.  EPA will consider written
comments
submitted during the comment periods with the same weight as oral
comments
presented during the public hearings.
