DEP Approves Air Quality Plan for Modifications at Milford Compressor Station

WILKES-BARRE -- The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) today announced it has issued an Air Quality Plan Approval to Columbia Gas Transmission, LLC to modify their existing natural gas compressor station in Milford, Pike County.

The company will replace two existing engine-driven compressors with two new natural gas-fired compressor turbines and replace a generator with a new emergency generator.

“The department has conducted a thorough review of Columbia’s air quality plan approval application and we’re confident that the project satisfies applicable requirements, including best available technology for reducing emissions,” said DEP Northeast Regional Director Mike Bedrin.

DEP held a public hearing on the plan approval on Monday, Aug. 18 at Delaware Valley High School, 256 U.S. Route 6, Milford from 6 to 9 p.m. During the meeting, the department took testimony from residents regarding the plan approval. The Department also accepted written comments from July 26, 2014 to September 2, 2014. Representatives from Columbia Gas attended the hearing.

DEP prepared a comment/response document to address the public comments it received about this proposal. Residents may obtain a copy of the plan approval and comment/response document on DEP’s website at www.dep.state.pa.us. Click on the “Regional Resources” page in the left hand column, go to the Northeast Regional Office page and then click on “Community Information” in the upper right side.

For those who do not have internet access, copies of the plan approval and comment/response document are available at DEP’s Northeast Regional Office at 2 Public Square, Wilkes-Barre.
