SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Utah’s revised regional haze plan will be reviewed by the Environmental Protection Agency, with approval ending a lawsuit by environmentalists.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1h7ZDQj) a lawsuit was filed by environmental groups including the National Parks Conservation Association to get the EPA to enforce development of the haze plan.

The EPA is required by the Clean Air Act to implement a federal plan within two years if the state fails to provide an acceptable proposal. The federal agency rejected a proposal in 2012.

Conservation association southwest region program manager Cory MacNulty says the lawsuit would be resolved if the EPA approves the plan.

He said the state’s new proposal, however, does nothing to improve park air quality.
