A Dominion Resources Inc. unit’s application for an air-quality permit for a natural-gas compressor station must be evaluated by a Maryland state agency, a federal appeals court in Washington ruled.

The Maryland Department of the Environment should disclose valid zoning objections by local governments involved in the case or process the application, Circuit Judge Thomas Griffith wrote for a three-judge panel in an opinion issued today.

“The department must either identify one or more‘applicable’ (that is, not pre-empted) zoning or land use requirements with which Dominion has not demonstrated compliance, or it must process Dominion’s application for an air quality permit,” Griffith wrote.

The case is Dominion Transmission Inc. v. Summers, 13-1019, U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia (Washington).
