Virginia: Amending air permitting and emissions fees

The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) recently proposed regulations that will increase air permitting fees and emissions fees in order to ensure that the state’s Title V Major Source Operating Permit Program remains fully funded. The amendments also restructure the fee regulations to ensure they better address the actual costs of administering the Title V program going forward.

The proposed amendments seek to increase the emissions fee rate for 2017 and 2018 emissions to $73.01 per ton and $83.96 per ton, respectively. Thereafter, the fee will be adjusted annually according to the Consumer Price Index. Greenhouse gases will be excluded from emissions fee calculations.

The DEQ is also seeking to increase permit application fees, but the amount of the increase will vary on the basis of permit application type. Also among the amendments is an increase in permit maintenance fees and a new minimum fee for synthetic minor sources.

For information, contact DEQ’s Gary Graham at gary.graham@deq.virginia.gov or by phone at 804-698-4103.
