- A public notice was issued Nov. 29, 2019 for a Plantwide Applicability Limitation (PAL) air permit for OPPD’s Nebraska City plant for the pollutants sulfur dioxide (SO2) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx). This would be the first PAL permit issued in Nebraska. PAL permits are structured to allow changes in operation without going through the permit modification process, as long as the permittee complies with a facility-wide cap on actual emissions for the specified pollutant. After receiving public comments and a request for a public hearing, an information session and hearing are being planned in February.
