What's New (As of February 2019)

On February 4, 2019, DEP issued an administrative order to Erie Coke to address ongoing violations of the Pennsylvania Air Pollution Control Act at Erie Coke's coke production facility in the City of Erie. A copy of that order can be found here.

The Erie Coke Corporation (Erie Coke) submitted a Title V Air Permit Renewal application to the DEP on August 28, 2017. Although not a "trigger permit" under the DEP's Enhanced Public Participation (EPP) Policy, DEP decided to "Opt-In" the Title V Permit Renewal application.

DEP is currently reviewing a Title V Air Permit Renewal application for Erie Coke Corporation, which is required every five years. Prior to the renewal being either approved or denied, there will be a formal public involvement process where informational materials will be distributed to the local community, and the public will be able to provide testimony or comment on the application under review. The public notice for the meeting and hearing will be posted in the Pennsylvania Bulletin and a legal notice will be issued in the Erie Times News as well as distributed through local stakeholder groups according to DEP's Environmental Justice Policy.

DEP is also currently reviewing a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permit Renewal Application for Individual Permit to Discharge Industrial Wastewater Renewal for Erie Coke, which is required every five years. The permit application was received by the DEP on May 4, 2017. Prior to the renewal being either approved or denied, there will be a formal public involvement process where informational materials will be distributed to the local community and the public will be able to provide testimony or comment on the application under review. The public notice for the meeting and hearing will be posted in the Pennsylvania Bulletin and a legal notice will be issued in the Erie Times News as well as distributed through local stakeholder groups according to DEP's Environmental Justice Policy.

What's New (Updated October 2018)

A public information session will be scheduled, where members of the public will be invited to learn about the various permit guidelines and process, and ask questions of both DEP staff and the applicant.

Following a technical review of the Title V Air Permit Renewal application and the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Renewal Application, a public hearing will be scheduled, where members of the public will be invited to provide formal testimony and comments on the draft permits.

Once a technical review is complete, and all public comments are considered, a final decision will be made by the Department.
