VTCA Commente - Ambient Air Quality Standards [9 VAC 5-30] Periodic Review

VTCA Aggregate Producer Members account for 91% of all metal/nonmetal mineral production in the Commonwealth. Amendments to the General Permit for Nonmetallic Mineral Mining [9 VAC 5-510] (NMPGP) will have a widespread impact on Virginia’s aggregate producers.

 VTCA Aggregate Producers support the limits the way that they are currently written, the EPA recently declined an opportunity to change them, and air quality continues to improve under the current regulations.

 If the State Air Pollution Control Board elects to open this permit up for review or amendment VTCA would like to be part of an advisory group that is formed.
