A Title V is like a snapshot that includes all emissions limits and standards to which the source is subject, as well as all operating, monitoring, and reporting requirements that apply at the time of the permit’s issuance. By including all the requirements in one document, Title V Operating Permits help source operators comply with such requirements.Dismal history of Erie Coke

I live on the eastside. Many, [too many,] times I have had to close my windows from the sickening smell. I smell the same thing when I go to the South Pier for a walk, and I KNOW the difference between the different businesses down there. The coke plant should go the way of that ridiculous “TIRE PLANT”. We are WAY overdue to unburden Erie from this left-over polluter. I also think Scott enterprise and the bayfront hotels need to join this fight. I’m glad there is a Doctor [ of science] who is participating, I hope more medical doctors join this fight. The doctor who participated in the tire factory rejection was a big factor. Kudos to the people who formed this group.
The smell of the plant is very strong and noxious in the downtown Erie area. The plumes of industrial toxins being released into the air ruins the downtown area, and is directly across from a protected shore birds area on the peninsula. It also is highly detrimental to all east side property values and any investments in that area of town.
