As a result of Guardians lawsuit, the state encouraged Summit to lower its emissions levels to qualify for a different kind of permit known as a “synthetic minor” permit. This is good news, because short of getting a facility shut down, the move to this kind of permit results in the greatest amount of actual emissions reductions. Guardians agreed to stay this case pending finalization of the new permit, in the hope that the state will move more of its “major” sources to lower their emissions to “minor” source levels.
