Minnesota Pollution Control Agency
Public Notice on Draft
Air Emission Facility Permit

The Commissioner of the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) proposes to issue Air Emission Permit No. 09300001-101, to the City of Litchfield for their facility located at 421 West 3rd Street, Meeker County, Litchfield, Minnesota.

Litchfield currently owns and operates a municipal peak electric generating facility consisting of seven compression ignition reciprocating internal combustion engines and a natural gas heating boiler. The engines combust a combination of diesel fuel and diesel fuel/natural gas (dual fuel mode).

This permit includes authorization to construct two new, unlimited use 4,376 horsepower engines that combust diesel fuel. These engines are controlled by both selective catalytic reduction systems and oxidation catalysts.

The permit action is for modification and operation of the facility. The permit action is the reissuance of the Part 70 Operating Permit; therefore, the draft permit has been placed on public notice.

The public comment period commences July 24, 2019, and terminates August 22, 2019. A copy of the full web notice, the draft permit, and technical support document will be available on the MPCA’s website at To receive a paper copy of the web notice, you can contact Nicholas Coleman at 651-757-2592.
