This notice announces that, on April 15, 2014, pursuant to the Federal Minor New Source Review (NSR) Program in Indian Country, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a minor new source review construction permit to the White Earth Nation of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe for the Shooting Star Casino and Event Center in Mahnomen, Minnesota. The casino is located on the White Earth Nation's reservation. White Earth Nation owns and operates the Shooting Star Casino and Event Center, including two fuel oil-fired boilers and two propane-fired boilers used for space heating. The final minor NSR construction permit authorizes the construction of a new biomass-fired boiler and establishes annual operating hour limitations on the new and existing boilers at the casino.
