EPA To Review State's Air-Quality Regulations

Berea-based Kentucky Environmental Foundation says the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has agreed to review some of the state's air-quality regulations. The EPA agreed as part of a lawsuit to decide by April 15th whether Kentucky's plan for controlling ozone is adequate. The agency also agreed to make a decision by March 15th on the state's plan to regulate visible haze. The foundation argued in the lawsuit that the EPA failed to make the determination in the required time frame. Foundation executive director Elizabeth Crowe says the group is concerned that the state's proposed ozone plan downplays concentrations in Lexington, Ashland and the Edmonson County area.
