Update -- Electric Utility Study (01/22/98)

Section 112(n)(1)(A) of the Clean Air Act (the Act), as amended in 1990 directs EPA to "... perform a study of the hazards to public health reasonably anticipated to occur as a result of emissions by electric utility steam generating units of ... [hazardous air pollutants] ... after imposition of the requirements of this Act." In October 1996, EPA published an Interim Electric Utility Study Report. EPA states in its interim report that the report is not final because the Agency's assessment of impacts to public health is not yet complete.

Recently, EPA signed an unopposed motion to modify its February 7, 1995 Consent Decree regarding submission of a final Electric Utility Study Report to Congress. The Consent Decree, as modified, gives EPA until February 17, 1998 to submit to Congress a final Electric Utility Study. The motion also allow EPA until April 15, 1998 to make a determination of whether additional regulation of electric utilities under 112 of the Act is appropriate and necessary in light of the findings of the studies completed by the Agency.
