The coalfired power plant industry is an EPA national enforcement priority. Since 1999, EPA has pursued a coordinated, integrated compliance and enforcement strategy to address Clean Air Act (CAA) New Source Review compliance issues at the nation's coalfired power plants.
Many coalfired power plants are expected to close in coming years. Coal plant communities are faced with potentially longterm job and . tax revenue loss, legacy environmental contamination and the need for new economic opportunities. Preparing a site for reuse often is a complex, multiyear process that
