State Implementation Plans: Response to Petition for Rulemaking; Restatement and Update of EPA's SSM Policy Applicable to SIPs; Findings of Substantial Inadequacy; and SIP Calls To Amend Provisions Applying to Excess Emissions During Periods of Startup, Shutdown and MalfunctionRule2015-1290506/12/2015ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCYEnvironmental Protection AgencyThe Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is taking final action on a petition for rulemaking filed by the Sierra Club (Petitioner) that concerns how provisions in EPA-approved state implementation plans (SIPs) treat excess emission … The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is taking final action on a petition for rulemaking filed by the Sierra Club (Petitioner) that concerns how provisions in EPA-approved state implementation plans (SIPs) treat excess emissions during periods of startup, shutdown or malfunction (SSM). Further, the EPA is clarifying, restating and revising its guidance concerning its interpretation of the Clean Air Act (CAA or Act) requirements with respect to treatment in SIPs of excess emissions that occur during periods of SSM. The EPA evaluated existing SIP provisions in a number of states for consistency with the EPA's interpretation of the CAA and in light of recent court decisions addressing this issue. The EPA is issuing a finding that certain SIP provisions in 36 states (applicable in 45 statewide and local jurisdictions) are substantially inadequate to meet CAA requirements and thus is issuing a ``SIP call'' for each of those 36 states. Further, the EPA is establishing a due date for states subject to this SIP call action to submit corrective SIP revisions. Finally, this final action embodies the EPA's updated SSM Policy as it applies to SIP provisions. The SSM Policy provides guidance to states for compliance with CAA requirements for SIP provisions applicable to excess emissions during SSM events.state-implementation-plans-response-to-petition-for-rulemaking-restatement-and-update-of-epas-ssmFR-Doc-2015-12905
State Implementation Plans: Response to Petition for Rulemaking; Findings of Substantial Inadequacy; and SIP Calls To Amend Provisions Applying to Excess Emissions During Periods of Startup, Shutdown and Malfunction; Supplemental Proposal To Address Affirmative Defense Provisions in States Included in the Petition for Rulemaking and in Additional StatesProposed Rule2014-2183009/17/2014ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCYEnvironmental Protection AgencyIn this supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking (SNPR), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is supplementing and revising what it previously proposed as its response to a petition for rulemaking filed by the Sierra Club (the P … In this supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking (SNPR), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is supplementing and revising what it previously proposed as its response to a petition for rulemaking filed by the Sierra Club (the Petition). By notice published on February 22, 2013, the EPA proposed its response to the Petition's requests concerning treatment of excess emissions in state rules by sources during periods of startup, shutdown or malfunction (SSM). Subsequent to that proposal, a federal court ruled that the Clean Air Act (CAA or Act) precludes authority of the EPA to create affirmative defense provisions applicable to private civil suits. As a result, in this SNPR the EPA is proposing to apply its revised interpretation of the CAA, but only with respect to affirmative defense provisions in state implementation plans (SIPs). For specific affirmative defense provisions identified in the Petition, we are revising the basis for the proposed findings of substantial inadequacy and SIP calls or proposing new findings of substantial inadequacy and SIP calls. For specific provisions that the EPA has independently identified, including SIP provisions in states not included in the February 2013 proposal notice, we are proposing new findings and SIP calls.state-implementation-plans-response-to-petition-for-rulemaking-findings-of-substantial-inadequacyFR-Doc-2014-21830

The Petition includes interrelated requests concerning the treatment of excess emissions in state rules by sources during periods of startup, shutdown, or malfunction (SSM). The EPA is proposing to grant in part and to deny in part the request in the Petition to rescind its policy interpreting the Clean Air Act (CAA) to allow states to have appropriately drawn state implementation plan (SIP) provisions that provide affirmative defenses to monetary penalties for violations during periods of SSM. The EPA is also proposing either to grant or to deny the Petition with respect to the specific existing SIP provisions related to SSM in each of 39 states identified by the Petitioner as inconsistent with the CAA. Further, for each of those states where the EPA proposes to grant the Petition concerning specific provisions, the EPA also proposes to find that the existing SIP provision is substantially inadequate to meet CAA requirements and thus under CAA authority proposes a ``SIP call.'' For those states for which the EPA proposes a SIP call, the EPA also proposes a schedule for the states to submit a corrective SIP revision. Finally, the EPA is also proposing to deny the request in the Petition that the EPA discontinue reliance on interpretive letters from states to clarify any potential ambiguity in SIP submissions, even in circumstances where the EPA may determine that this approach is appropriate and has adequately documented that approach in a rulemaking action. This action reflects the EPA's current SSM Policy for SIPs.state-implementation-plans-response-to-petition-for-rulemaking-findings-of-substantial-inadequacyFR-Doc-2013-03734
Revisions of Five California Clean Air Act Title V Operating Permits ProgramsRule2012-2168309/05/2012ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCYEnvironmental Protection AgencyEPA is finalizing approval of revisions to the Operating Permits (Title V) programs of the Monterey Bay Unified Air Pollution Control District (MBUAPCD), San Luis Obispo County Air Pollution Control District (SLOCAPCD), Santa Barbara C … EPA is finalizing approval of revisions to the Operating Permits (Title V) programs of the Monterey Bay Unified Air Pollution Control District (MBUAPCD), San Luis Obispo County Air Pollution Control District (SLOCAPCD), Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District (SBCAPCD), South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD), and Ventura County Air Pollution Control District (VCAPCD). We proposed these program revisions in the Federal Register on March 21, 2012. These revisions require sources with the potential to emit (PTE) of greenhouse gases (GHGs) above the thresholds in EPA's Tailoring Rule, which have not been previously subject to Title V for other reasons, to obtain a Title V permit.

This rule completes Step 3 by determining not to lower the current Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) and title V applicability thresholds for GHG-emitting sources established in the Tailoring Rule for Steps 1 and 2. We are also promulgating regulatory revisions for better implementation of the federal program for establishing plantwide applicability limitations (PALs) for GHG emissions, which will improve the administration of the GHG PSD permitting programs.prevention-of-significant-deterioration-and-title-v-greenhouse-gas-tailoring-rule-step-3-and-ghgFR-Doc-2012-16704

Deferral for CO2Rule2011-1725607/20/2011ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCYEnvironmental Protection AgencyThis action defers for a period of three (3) years the application of the Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) and Title V permitting requirements to biogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from bioenergy and other … This action defers for a period of three (3) years the application of the Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) and Title V permitting requirements to biogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from bioenergy and other biogenic stationary sources. This action is being taken as part of the process of granting the Petition for Reconsideration filed by the National Alliance of Forest Owners (NAFO) on August 3, 2010, related to the PSD and Title V Greenhouse Gas Tailoring Rule. The result of this action is that during this three year period biogenic CO2 emissions are not required to be counted for applicability purposes under the PSD and Title V permitting programs. State, local, and tribal permitting authorities may adopt the deferral at their option but the deferral is effective upon publication for the PSD and Title V permit programs that are implemented by EPA.deferral-for-co2FR-Doc-2011-17256

These actions are based on EPA's determination that at the time EPA approved Texas's PSD program, the program was flawed because the state did not address how the program would apply to all pollutants that would become newly subject to regulation in the future, including non-National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) pollutants, among them greenhouse gases (GHGs). The partial disapproval requires EPA to promulgate a FIP and EPA is doing so to assure that GHG-emitting sources in Texas are able to proceed with plans to construct or expand.determinations-concerning-need-for-error-correction-partial-approval-and-partial-disapproval-andFR-Doc-2011-10285

Action To Ensure Authority To Issue Permits Under the Prevention of Significant Deterioration Program to Sources of Greenhouse Gas Emissions: Federal Implementation Plan for Jefferson County, KYRule2011-76801/14/2011ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCYEnvironmental Protection AgencyEPA is establishing a federal implementation plan (FIP) to apply in Jefferson County, Kentucky because the Louisville Metro Air Pollution Control District (LMAPCD), through the Commonwealth of Kentucky, has not submitted by its esta … EPA is establishing a federal implementation plan (FIP) to apply in Jefferson County, Kentucky because the Louisville Metro Air Pollution Control District (LMAPCD), through the Commonwealth of Kentucky, has not submitted by its established deadline of January 1, 2011, a state implementation plan (SIP) revision to apply their Clean Air Act (CAA or Act) Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) program to sources of greenhouse gases (GHGs). This action will ensure that a permitting authority--EPA--is available in Jefferson County, Kentucky to issue preconstruction PSD permits to GHG- emitting sources. This action is related to EPA's recent final rule, the GHG PSD SIP Call, published on December 13, 2010, in which EPA made a finding of substantial inadequacy and issued a SIP call to LMAPCD because the SIP for Jefferson County does not apply the PSD program to GHG-emitting sources.action-to-ensure-authority-to-issue-permits-under-the-prevention-of-significant-deteriorationFR-Doc-2011-768

By notice dated December 13, 2010, EPA issued a ``SIP call'' for 13 states (comprising 15 state and local programs, including Kentucky's LMAPCD), requiring each state to revise its SIP as necessary to correct the SIP's failure to apply PSD to such sources and establishing a SIP submittal deadline for each state. By this action, EPA is making a finding that the LMAPCD has failed to submit the required SIP revision by January 1, 2011, which is the SIP submittal deadline that EPA established in the SIP call for LMAPCD. This finding requires EPA to promulgate a federal implementation plan (FIP) for Jefferson County, Kentucky, applying PSD to GHG-emitting sources, and EPA is taking a separate action to promulgate the FIP immediately.action-to-ensure-authority-to-issue-permits-under-the-prevention-of-significant-deteriorationFR-Doc-2011-769

This action will ensure that a permitting authority--EPA--is available in these states as of January 2, 2011, when PSD becomes applicable to GHG-emitting sources, to issue preconstruction PSD permits and thereby facilitate construction or expansion. The seven states are: Arizona: Both Pinal County and Rest of State (excluding Maricopa County, Pima County, and Indian Country), Arkansas, Florida, Idaho, Kansas, Oregon, and Wyoming. This action is related to EPA's recently promulgated final rule, published on December 13, 2010, which we call the GHG PSD SIP call, and in which EPA made a finding of substantial inadequacy and issued a SIP call for these seven states and several others on grounds that their SIPs do not apply the PSD program to GHG-emitting sources.action-to-ensure-authority-to-issue-permits-under-the-prevention-of-significant-deteriorationFR-Doc-2010-32784
Action To Ensure Authority To Implement Title V Permitting Programs Under the Greenhouse Gas Tailoring RuleRule2010-3275712/30/2010ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCYEnvironmental Protection AgencyThe final greenhouse gas (GHG) Tailoring Rule includes a step- by-step implementation strategy for issuing Federally-enforceable permits to the largest, most environmentally significant sources beginning January 2, 2011. In this action … The final greenhouse gas (GHG) Tailoring Rule includes a step- by-step implementation strategy for issuing Federally-enforceable permits to the largest, most environmentally significant sources beginning January 2, 2011. In this action, EPA is finalizing its proposed rulemaking to narrow EPA's previous approval of State title V operating permit programs that apply (or may apply) to GHG-emitting sources. Specifically, in this final rule, EPA is narrowing its previous approval of certain State permitting thresholds for GHG emissions so that only sources that equal or exceed the GHG thresholds established in the final Tailoring Rule would be covered as major sources by the Federally-approved programs in the affected States. By raising the GHG thresholds that apply title V permitting to major sources in the affected States, this final rule will reduce the number of sources that will be issued Federally-enforceable title V permits and thereby significantly reduce permitting burdens for permitting agencies and sources alike in those States.action-to-ensure-authority-to-implement-title-v-permitting-programs-under-the-greenhouse-gasFR-Doc-2010-32757

The state did not address, or provide adequate legal authority for, the program's application to all pollutants that would become newly subject to regulation in the future, including non-National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) pollutants, among them greenhouse gases (GHGs). Further, EPA is promulgating a federal implementation plan (FIP), as required following the partial disapproval, to establish a PSD permitting program in Texas for GHG-emitting sources. EPA is taking this action through interim final rulemaking, effective upon publication, to ensure the availability of a permitting authority-- EPA--in Texas for GHG-emitting sources when they become subject to PSD on January 2, 2011. This will allow those sources to proceed with plans to construct or expand. This rule will expire on April 30, 2011. EPA is also proposing a notice-and-comment rulemaking that mirrors this rulemaking.determinations-concerning-need-for-error-correction-partial-approval-and-partial-disapproval-andFR-Doc-2010-32786

EPA is finalizing its proposed rulemaking to narrow its previous approval of State Implementation Plan (SIP) PSD programs in 24 states that apply to GHG-emitting sources. Specifically, EPA is withdrawing its previous approval of those programs to the extent they apply PSD to GHG-emitting sources below the thresholds in the final Tailoring Rule, which EPA promulgated by Federal Register notice dated June 3, 2010. Having narrowed its prior approval, EPA asks that each affected state withdraw from EPA consideration the part of its SIP that is no longer approved. The states for whose SIPs EPA is narrowing approval are: Alabama, California, Colorado, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, and Wisconsin.limitation-of-approval-of-prevention-of-significant-deterioration-provisions-concerning-greenhouseFR-Doc-2010-32766
