Public Information Session on proposed new PSNC Mill Spring Compressor Station

Raleigh, NC

The N.C. Department of Environmental Quality’s Division of Air Quality (DAQ) is holding a public information session to accompany the public comment period on a proposed air quality permit for Public Service Company of North Carolina’s (PSNC) Mill Spring Compressor Station on Silver Creek Road in Polk County. The meeting will be held at 7:00 PM on Wednesday, May 23, in the R. Jay Foster Hall of Justice at the Bryant H. Womack Building located at 40 Courthouse Street in Columbus, North Carolina.  DAQ will provide a short presentation on the draft air quality permit and answer questions from attendees during the information session.

This facility's application for the proposed facility was reviewed by the DAQ to determine compliance with air pollution regulations. The results of that review led to a preliminary determination that the project could be approved, and the DAQ air permit issued, if certain permit conditions are met. The public comment period on the permit ends on May 24, 2018 on the draft permit to construct and operate a new compressor station.
