Community meeting May 26 for Metro Transit maintenance facility air emissions permit

Metro Transit is seeking a permit that will regulate emissions and operations at its Light Rail Operations and Maintenance Facility located at 1810 E. Franklin Ave. in Minneapolis.

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) will hold a community meeting regarding this permit on May 26, from 6:30 - 8 p.m., in the Bloomington Room, at the East Phillips Park Cultural and Community Center - 2307 17th Ave. S.

The permit is needed so Metro Transit can spray paint light rail trains, perform additional maintenance activities, and use natural-gas-fired heating equipment and an emergency generator at its maintenance facility.

The MPCA reviewed the Metro Transit permit application with respect to applicable federal and state rules including the cumulative levels and effects (CL&E) analysis requirements of Minn. Stat 116.07 subd 4a. As a result of this analysis, the draft air permit includes stringent emission limits and operational limits for the facility.

At the Community Meeting, MPCA staff will provide a brief presentation on the results of the permit application review, including the CL&E analysis, and the draft air permit with time for questions and answers afterwards.
