(INDIANAPOLIS) - The state has delayed a public hearing about BP's new water permit for its planned Whiting refinery expansion.
The Indiana Department of Environmental Management has set the new hearing for March 14. It still will be at the Hammond Civic Center in Northwestern Indiana.
State officials released a proposed air permit Tuesday the company needs approved before work can begin on the $3.8 billion project.
IDEM says the delay will give the public extra time to analyze the permit and prepare comments.
