BP refinery seeking air pollution permit

The BP refinery in Whiting has been the source of a lot of controversy because of a permit which allows more dumping into Lake Michigan.

And soon the public will get a chance to voice their thoughts on an air pollution permit.

The air emissions permit goes along with BP’s plans for a three-billion dollar expansion to the company's refinery.

The plant manager says only carbon monoxide emissions will increase.

The public will get to comment on the application once the company finishes it and submits it to the state for review.

In the meantime, a BP spokesman adds that the company will not seek any changes in its controversial waste water permit to appease critics.
