What is the purpose of Wednesday’s meeting and hearing?
IDEM has received an application from Midwest Fertilizer Corporation, located at the intersection of Old SR 69 and Mackey Ferry Road East, Mt. Vernon, Indiana 47602, for a PSD/New Source Construction and Part 70 Operating Permit. If approved by IDEM’s Office of Air Quality (OAQ), this proposed permit would allow Midwest Fertilizer Corporation to construct and operate a stationary nitrogen fertilizer manufacturing facility. IDEM has reviewed this application, and has developed preliminary findings, consisting of a draft permit and several supporting documents, that would allow the applicant to construct this facility.

During the meeting, IDEM staff will provide information to the public about the proposed facility and the air permit that IDEM is proposing to issue for its construction and operation. The purpose of the hearing that will immediately follow will provide opportunity for the public to speak on the record about the proposed facility and IDEM’s proposed permit. IDEM will also accept written comments during the meeting and hearing.

For individuals who are unable to attend Wednesday’s hearing, IDEM will accept written comments until March 3, 2014. The public can mail comments to the following address:

        David Matusek
        IDEM Office of Air Quality
        100 N. Senate Ave
        IGCN 1003
        Indianapolis, IN 46204-2251

IDEM will consider all comments it receives before making a final decision.
