Ohio EPA announces public hearings on Rover pipeline compressor stations

The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (Ohio EPA) will hold five public hearings throughout the month of June to provide communities with proposed compressor stations for the Rover pipeline information about the draft air permits for those stations’ installation and operations.

The compressor stations would be located in Beallsville, Monroe County; Summerfield, Noble County; Chatfield Township, Crawford County; Wooster, Wayne County; Cadiz, Harrison County; Sherrodsville, Carroll County; and Defiance, Defiance County. The compressor stations will facilitate delivery of natural gas along the proposed Rover pipeline.

The Ohio EPA has completed reviews of the permit applications and determined that the proposed emissions would be in compliance with federal and state regulations on air pollution control. It has now issued draft permits, which are available on the Ohio EPA’s website and are subject to public comment. Finalized permits would allow for installation and operation of the compressor station’s equipment.

Those interested in attending the public hearings will receive general information about the draft permits and will be able to provide their comments through testimony. The hearings all begin at 6 p.m. and will be held at: Monroe Central High School in Woodsfield, on June 14; Buckeye Central High School in New Washington, on June 15; OARDC’s Fisher Auditorium in Wooster, on June 16; Harrison North Elementary Barr Memorial Gymnasium in Scio, on June 21; and Defiance College Schomburg Auditorim in Defiance, on June 22.
