Air Quality Division

Notice is given to the public, according to Chapter 14 of Nebraska Administrative Code Title 129 - Nebraska Air Quality Regulations, that the Department is proposing to issue a construction permit to the City of Grand Island (FID# 58027) to revise construction permit requirements for Platte Generating Station, a coal-fired power plant (Standard Industrial Classification code 4911) operated by the City of Grand Island Utilities Department, located at 1035 Wildwood Drive, Grand Island, Hall County, Nebraska. There are no anticipated changes in emissions of regulated air contaminants due to the proposed permit revisions at this facility.

The Department proposes to issue a construction permit with specific conditions, based on Title 129, which removes permit requirements related to the electrostatic precipitator; removes construction permit requirements for bin vent filters and wet scrubbers considered inherent process equipment; and updates inspection and replacement requirements for the byproduct storage silo bin vent filter.

The proposed permit and supporting materials are available Friday, November 17, through Monday, December 18, 2017 at the NDEQ, Suite 400, 1200 "N" Street, Lincoln, Nebraska, and electronically at Only comments received by the Department during this period on new and significantly revised conditions to the previous construction permit(s) will be considered.
