TITLE V PERMIT TO OPERATE
Take notice that the North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality (NDDEQ) proposes to issue an Air Construction Permit (ACP) and reissue an Air Pollution Control Operating Permit (AOP) to Great River Energy (GRE) for operation of the Spiritwood Station in accordance with the ND Air Pollution Control Rules.

The Great River Energy mailing address is 12300 Elm Creek Boulevard, Maple Grove, MN 55369-4718. The ACP project revises an averaging period for an existing emission limit and does include the construction/modification/reconstruction of any equipment. The draft AOP incorporates ACP-18010 v1.0 and there are no changes in potential emissions.
Preliminary evaluations made by Department staff indicate that the ACP changes will comply with all applicable Air Pollution Control Rules and there will be no significant detrimental effects to air quality.
