EPC to hold informal workshops on proposed permitting rule changes
The EPC staff will hold two informal workshops to answer questions and take public comment on proposed amendments to the following rules:
Chapter 1-1 General Rules
Chapter 1-2 Administrative Procedures
Chapter 1-3 Stationary Air Pollution
Chapter 1-5 Water Quality
Chapter 1-7 Waste Management Rule
Chapter 1-8 Mobile Source
Chapter 1-10 Noise

The informal workshops will be held on:
