The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) will hold a final round of public meetings to receive and discuss suggestions to draft amendments to the air and water permit fee rules that partially fund permit activities.

Businesses and municipalities – including large feedlot operations – that hold air and water permits from the MPCA are encouraged to attend. Environmental groups and other interested parties are also encouraged to attend the meetings to ask questions and provide comments on draft rule language.

Most meetings (with the exception of the one held in St. Paul) will be open from 1 to 7 p.m. with presentations at 1:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. There will be time before or after presentations for questions and discussion of alternative rule language. Individuals will be able to determine what permit fees would apply to their facilities.

Meetings will be held on:
Monday, Sept. 29 — MPCA St. Paul office, 520 Lafayette Road N. — 2 p.m.–4 p.m. (one presentation only at 2:30 p.m.)
Tuesday, Sept. 30 — MPCA Rochester office, 18 Wood Lake Drive SE — 1 p.m.–7 p.m.
Wednesday, Oct. 1 — Kandiyohi Health and Human Services building in Willmar, 2200 23rd St. NE — 1 p.m.–7 p.m.
Thursday, Oct. 2 — MPCA Brainerd office, 7678 College Road, Suite 105 — 1 p.m.–7 p.m.

Air and water permit holders are strongly encouraged to review the proposed draft rule and background information on the MPCA’s web site at

“We want to provide one more opportunity for stakeholders to provide input on the actual rule language changes to the air and water fee rules before we begin the formal rulemaking process,” said Rich Sandberg, project leader for the MPCA.
