EPA Approves Kentucky Plan to Limit Haze, Pollution at Mammoth Cave Nat’l Park

The EPA has approved Kentucky’s plan to meet federal air pollutant and visibility requirements around Mammoth Cave National Park.

EPA administrator Andrew Wheeler visited Kentucky on Friday to announce the approval of the state’s regional haze plan.

States develop plans in order to comply with a portion of the Clean Air Act that requires states to work toward reducing air pollution problems at national parks and wilderness areas.

The new approval replaces a federally imposed plan on Kentucky’s haze requirements that dates back to 2012.
