Jacob Hollinger wrote in a cited blog post about a Third Circuit ruling that rejected EPA’s position that power plant emission violations are not subject to the five-year statute of limitations. “Do not expect EPA (or other plaintiffs) to give up so easily,” Mr. Hollinger wrote. The ruling "all but encourages EPA to investigate planned equipment upgrades, not just past upgrades. And … it may prompt EPA to pay greater attention to the Title V permit renewal application for power plants. He added, “If EPA cannot complain about 'incomplete' operating permits during enforcement actions, it may become more aggressive about raising … concerns during the permitting process."
