Ohio EPA Issues Air Permits for Five NEXUS Compressor Stations

Posted on

The Ohio EPA has issued five air permits-to-install-and-operate compressor stations intended to facilitate delivery of natural gas along the Nexus Gas Transmission (NGT) pipeline.

The permits were issued as final for facilities at the following locations:

Clyde – Sandusky County (east of Pickle Street/south of I-90) 
Hanoverton – Columbiana County (near State Route 644 and Ridgeway Road) 
Salineville -Columbiana County (Yellow Creek Road) 
Wadsworth/Guilford Township – Medina County (north of I-76 on Guilford Road) 
Waterville – Lucas County (Moosman Drive, south of Neapolis-Waterville Road)

Before issuing the air permits as final, the Ohio EPA reviewed the company’s application to ensure that emissions would comply with federal and state air pollution control standards, laws and regulations. The agency also held public information sessions and hearings, and received and responded to comments from the public. Copies of the permits may be viewed at http://epa.ohio.gov/pic/respond.aspx.

Issuance of final permits can be appealed to the Ohio Environmental Review Appeals Commission (ERAC). Appeals generally must be filed within 30 days of issuing a final action; therefore, anyone considering filing an appeal should contact ERAC at (614) 466-8950 for more information.
