Abstract EPA is considering issuance of NPDES permits for the Cummins Creek Project. The surface lignite mine is proposed to provide fuel for two 400 MW steam electric generation units during the 37-year mine life. Notable effects associated with the project include: increased emissions of particulates, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides and radionuclides; degradation to surface water and groundwater quality; alterations in surface water runoff and groundwater infiltration; increased noise levels; increased erosion and loss of soils including prime farmlands; loss of cultural resources; increased tax revenues. Many of these project affects will result in adverse impacts and irreversible loss on natural resources.
