Per law, CDPHE must grant Suncor’s application for renewal of its Title V operating permit if the permit complies with all requirements. CDPHE has the authority to strengthen emissions monitoring and reporting standards in the permit, and the department strengthens the permit. The EPA has 45 days to review the permit and approve it or provide CDPHE feedback.
