New Indy Reports & Documents

*Updated December 5, 2022

The test reports submitted in July and August are lengthy and complex documents (see documents below).  DHEC and EPA have conducted initial reviews of the reports (see response letters below).  After the reviews are complete, a summary of the assessment will be posted. 

The DHEC Order to Correct Undesirable Level of Air Contaminants requires New Indy - Catawba to provide weekly status updates on activities related to the Order. These and other documents issued from New Indy - Catawba will be posted here.


There are two Orders issued to New Indy, one by DHEC under the authority of the South Carolina Pollution Control Act and the other by the US EPA under the authority of the Clean Air Act. 

The goal of both Orders is for the facility to identify H2S sources onsite that are contributing to the offsite odors and impact to the surrounding communities and to reduce emissions affecting offsite locations. 

EPA required documents are posted to the EPA link. Questions about the EPA requirements or documents should be directed to Jason McDonald, mcdonald.jason@epa.gov, 404-562-9203

DHEC required documents are posted to this page once they are finalized.  The table below lists the documents, the date they are due, the date they are submitted and a status (“under review” or “final”).  Once final, the actual document will be posted.
