Utilities organize against EPA haze plan for Wyo.

Jul 11, 2013

The EPA is taking public comments through Aug. 26 and has scheduled two more public hearings _ July 17 in Cheyenne and July 26 in Casper _ on the proposal.

"As it has done with states across the country, EPA has worked, and will continue to work, with Wyoming to put in place a plan that relies on proven, cost-effective technologies to cut harmful pollution that reduces visibility," EPA spokesman Rich Mylott said in an emailed statement.

The "Stop EPA WY" campaign by Basic Electric Power Cooperative, the Missouri Basin Power Project, PacifiCorp, Rocky Mountain Power and the Wyoming Rural Electric Association will run television, radio and newspaper ads to oppose the regional haze plan. The utilities also have set up a website,, through which people can submit comments on the plan.
