The Missouri Department of Natural Resources is proposing revisions to the Missouri State Implementation Plan (SIP). The purpose of the revision is to amend an Administrative Order on Consent (AOC) between the department and Evergy Inc. regarding the Lake Road Generating Station in Buchannan County. The AOC amendment includes more protective fuel restrictions at Lake Road and streamlines Evergy’s reporting and recordkeeping requirements. These updates reflect the current actual operating conditions at Lake Road.

The department invites the public to review and offer written comments on the proposed revision until Dec. 9, 2021. All comments must be received or postmarked by 5 p.m. The public can review the proposed revisions below. Written comments may be submitted by mail to Air Quality Planning Section Chief, Missouri Department of Natural Resources, Air Pollution Control Program, PO Box 176, Jefferson City, MO 65102-0176 or by email to apcpsip@dnr.mo.gov

The Missouri Air Conservation Commission will hold a public hearing about the proposed revision on Dec. 2, 2021. Please follow the hearing link for more information. If the commission adopts the proposed action, the department intends to submit the revisions to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to be included in Missouri’s SIP.
