WHO:              Environmental Justice and Tribal Community Members and Organizations
WHAT:            Webinar on EPA’s Proposed Mercury and Air Toxics Standards for Power Plants
WHEN:            Monday, May 2, 2011, 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm Eastern Time
EPA is hosting a webinar to assist environmental justice and tribal community members in understanding EPA’s proposed Mercury and Air Toxics Standards for power plants. 
On March 16, 2011, EPA issued the proposed Mercury and Air Toxics Standards, which would reduce emissions of toxic air pollutants from new and existing coal- and oil-fired electric utility steam generating units. This rule would reduce emissions of heavy metals (including mercury, arsenic, chromium, and nickel) and acid gases (including hydrogen chloride and hydrogen fluoride). At the same time, EPA also proposed to revise the new source performance standards (NSPS) for electric utility steam generating units. The proposed NSPS would set new standards for particulate matter, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen oxides.
The May 2 webinar will provide an overview of the health impacts and benefits of the proposed Mercury and Air Toxics Standards, the proposed requirements, and procedures for public comment and public hearings.
To learn more about the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards for power plants, please register in advance (at least 24 hours prior) using the following link: https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/213080217
