PSNC Mill Spring Natural Gas Compressor Station receives final state air permit with additional requirements

MILL SPRING – After reviewing the air permit application for the new PSNC Mill Spring Natural Gas Compressor Station and all public comments received, the N.C. Department of Environmental Quality’s Division of Air Quality has issued a final permit with additional requirements.

The final permit for the facility at 823 Silver Creek Road includes two additional requirements not in the draft based on public comment and further review:

  • An additional nitrogen oxides compliance stack test due during the permit cycle; and
  • Inspection and maintenance documentation regarding the manufacturer’s SoLoNOx nitrogen oxides reduction technology.

The final air permit, which was signed and issued June 4, clearly defines the air quality requirements applicable to the facility: emission standards, stack testing, monitoring, record keeping and more. The Division of Air Quality will conduct periodic compliance inspections at the facility.
