EPA Regulations Prompt New CWLP Study


Federal environmental regulations are putting an increased burden on operations at City Water Light and Power, and may force the city to rethink how it generates electricity in the future.

 

Aldermen will take a final vote next week on a 200-thousand dollar contract for a study to look at whether the city can continue to operate its coal-fired generators, or whether the equipment will have to be modified or shut down entirely.

 

Alderman Frank Edwards thinks federal EPA rules have gotten out of hand and says the agency needs to be “reined in.”
