Michael Silverstein, with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, helped negotiate the plan with the state’s power plants aimed at reducing regional haze. “It was designed to be measurable by the human eye,” Silverstein said. Silverstein said Hayden Station was a “very key facility” during negotiations of the regional haze plan because of its proximity to national parks and wilderness areas. Craig Station, which generates 1,303 megawatts of electricity, was also part of the plan.
