Under the Clean Air Act, any planned facility that could raise air pollution in a county that fails to comply with air quality standards must get what's called a "Prevention of Significant Deterioration of Air Quality permit" (PSD) under the sometimes controversial New Source Review process.
The New Source Review provision was seldom used until the 1990s when the Clinton administration and Northeastern states began suing power companies that had upgraded facilities without making the required anti-pollution improvements.
