Nebraska’s Title V operating permit program received full approval from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), effective August 16, 1999. EPA has also approved a Title V permitting threshold for greenhouse gas emissions that is consistent with the current federal requirements. See the national section TITLE V for more information on the federal requirements.
· Administration and enforcement. NDEQ’s Air Quality Division administers and enforces the Title V program in Nebraska.
