SRP hosts meeting on proposed pollution controls

Updated:

PAGE, Ariz. (AP) - The operator of a coal-fired power plant on the Navajo Nation has scheduled a public meeting to discuss recently proposed pollution controls.

The Salt River Project says the proposal for the Navajo Generating Station in Page could cost more than $1 billion.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says its proposal will help improve air quality at the Grand Canyon and other national parks and wilderness areas.

The proposal would give the power plant's owners 10 years to install technology to reduce haze-causing nitrogen oxide emissions by 84%, or 28,500 tons per year.

The meeting hosted by the Salt River Project is set for Thursday evening in Page.

The EPA also plans public meetings as part of a 90-day comment period.
