The new addition was made possible through a Trust established by the Joseph p. Sole family of Clarksburg. Seated at right is Gary Wilson president and ceo of Burlington United methodist family tells states to reduce pollution h. Josef Hebert associated press writer Washington a the environmental Protection Agency told West Virginia and 21 other states Friday to reduce smog causing pollution especially from electric Power plants or risk the loss of Federal Highway funds. The tougher air pollution requirements will have the greatest Impact on Midwest and Ohio Valley states because they have done less to curtail smog causing nitrogen oxide releases from Coal burning Power plants. Many Northeast states will have to make Only modest improvements because they already have made significant reductions. States will have two years to develop pollution control plans for the additional reductions and until 2005 to slash emissions by amounts ranging from 19 percent in Rhode Island and new York to 44 percent in West Virginia. John Johnston chief of the West Virginia office of air Quality said Friday he had been expecting but had not yet seen the Epa reports. The state will develop a plan to meet the Federal limits once it finds out what those numbers Are he said. Implementation will take several years. The Agency a planning office will come up with the plan and larger sources of nitrogen oxide will Likely be targeted first Johnston said. Electricity plants and Large manufacturers generate the most nitrogen oxide but any Plant that uses a combustion process will produce it he said. Epa administrator Carol Browner said the new pollution Caps Are needed to Stem the flow of smog causing chemicals across state and regional boundaries and to help communities to meet the More stringent air Quality health standards announced last summer. A these reductions alone will help almost All areas to achieve the new More protective air standards in a Cost effective common sense Way a said Browner. She said most states should meet the Epa pollution Caps for nitrogen oxide by clamping tighter controls on electric Power Plant smokestacks but states will have to decide How to achieve the emission reductions. Several Midwest states including Ohio and Michigan were expected to oppose the Epa requirement and have not ruled out a possible lawsuit challenging the Agency a authority to impose the new emission Caps under the 1990 clean air act. Browner said if states done to come up with a timely pollution reduction plan the Epa could impose a Federal program or the government could withhold Federal Highway funds. The new requirements have been expected As part of the Epars efforts to curtail the movement of pollution across Long distances and to help meet the tougher health Standard for Ozone that the Agency imposed last summer despite intense protest from Industry. The most severe cuts will be required in states with Large Coal powered electric plants in the Midwest and Ohio Valley. Five states must Cut emissions 40 percent or More West Virginia Ohio Missouri Indiana and Kentucky. Northeastern states have complained that pollution from Ohio Valley Coal burning Power plants a whose tall stacks Send emissions High into the wind currents a has made it impossible for states from Maryland to Maine to clean up their air. Midwest utilities and state officials have argued that the Long distance transport threat has been exaggerated. But a two year study conducted by the states themselves concluded recently that additional emission controls Are needed to reduce the flow of interstate pollution. Them All.
