The PSD permitting of new sources has drawn increasing public and governmental opposition. Much of the opposition is due to heightened environmental awareness. The issues are further compounded by inherent obstacles resulting from the PSD regulations and guidelines. A chronological review of the process used by Old Dominion Electric Cooperative to obtain a PSD permit is presented to demonstrate the major PSD permitting issues facing new developers. The issues include the appropriate methodology for Best Available Control Technology detennination, protocol to be used for air quality analysis, the best way to handle the Federal Land Manager's current concerns, and public participation.
The present case study is analyzed to develop suggestions that would improve the current PSD process without jeopardizing the integrity of the program. Additionally, recommendations are made for developers who may encounter similar obstacles.
