ABSTRACT
The article reports that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed a federal implementation plan (FIP) which will require three coal-fired power plants in Oklahoma to reduce sulfur dioxide emissions. The facilities involved include two coal plants owned by Oklahoma Gas & Electric and one by Public Service Co. of Oklahoma. According to the EPA, the FIP will help the state meet air visibility requirements and improve public health through pollution reduction.
