Notice is given to the public, according to Chapter 10 of Nebraska Administrative Code Title 129 - Nebraska Air Quality Regulations, that the Department is proposing to issue an air construction permit to Omaha Papillion Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant (FID 57789), a wastewater treatment facility (Standard Industrial Classification code 4952 – Sewerage Systems) located at 15705 Harlan Lewis Road, Bellevue, Sarpy County, Nebraska. There is no anticipated change in emissions of regulated air contaminates due to the proposed revision.

Sarpy County meets the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for those pollutants subject to a NAAQS and is expected to continue in that status. No impact is anticipated on habitat for any rare or threatened species.

The Department proposes to reopen construction permit CP21-039 for cause in accordance with Title 129, Chapter 15, Section 006.
