Federal Appeals Court Reverses EPA Air Emission Standard in Alabama

LCG, March 7, 2013--The United States U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals yesterday ruled in favor of Alabama Power (a Southern Company subsidiary) and against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) over industrial air emission standards.

In 2008 the EPA approved changes in Alabama?s rules regarding smoke emissions at industrial plants and the allowable frequency of emitting opaque smoke; however, the EPA reversed the rule changes in 2011, stating there was "sufficient likelihood" that the new rules would increase air pollution.

The three-member federal appeals court in Atlanta yesterday struck down the EPA's reversal, stating, "We conclude the 2011 disapproval was unauthorized by the Clean Air Act because the EPA failed to make the statutorily required error determination."
