    Colorado Title V Permitting and Ozone NAA Workshop

    This half-day workshop is for both new and experienced professionals interested in learning how to prepare a Colorado Title V permit application, understanding the permit requirements and strategies for maintaining compliance, and evaluating permit applicability. Example permit conditions are discussed to illustrate how the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and companies have approached compliance demonstration requirements. The workshop will also provide updates on CDPHE's initiative to revamp and streamline their Title V permitting program. The second half of the workshop will focus on nonattainment new source review (NANSR) and how the Denver Metro North Front Range Ozone Nonattainment area "Serious" classification impacts permit applicability and NANSR requirements.
