Federal regulators have issued final regulations aimed at reducing pollution from taconite processing plants that causes haze over northern Minnesota’s wild areas including Voyageurs National Park and the Boundary Waters Canoe Area, as well as Isle Royal National Park in Michigan.
Clean air advocates are suing the Environmental Protection Agency, seeking an order to require the EPA to mandate that Xcel Energy install the best available technology to reduce emissions at Minnesota’s biggest power plant.
The citizens board of the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency is taking another crack at approving rules meant to cut the haze that sometimes clouds the views at Voyageurs National Park and the Boundary Waters Canoe Area.
The haze that you can see in parts of the Twin Cities metro area Friday afternoon is coming from up north, according to a meteorologist.
A Delta flight about to take off from Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport was stopped due to haze seen in the cabin, said airport spokesman Pat Hogan.
