MERIDIAN — The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has received a request from St. Luke's Meridian Medical Center to modify the air quality permit to construct (PTC) that regulates emissions from the hospital in Meridian.

The proposed permit modification will allow the hospital to increase operation of two emergency internal combustion engines powering electrical generators. Emissions must remain within legally allowable limits.

A public comment period will be provided on the proposed permit if a written request is submitted to DEQ by February 6, 2018, at 5 p.m. MST.

The permit application is available for review on DEQ’s website (download at right).
