The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency Clean Air Act hearing focuses on the operating permit for NRG Energy’s coal-fired power plant in Waukegan.The NRG plant, the largest source of carbon pollution in Lake County, has not had an effective operating permit since the Clean Air Act was passed in 1990. IEPA needs to approve effective testing, monitoring, record keeping and reporting guidelines now to ensure NRG Energy’s Waukegan coal plant stays within the limits of the law.
