NOTICE: PROPOSED RULES
ACTION: Air quality implementation plans; approval and promulgation; various States:
DOCUMENT ACTION: Proposed rule.
Revisions to the California State Implementation Plan, Bay Area Air Quality Management District and El Dorado County Air Pollution Control District
DATES: Any comments on this proposal must arrive by August 13, 2001.
EPA is proposing to approve revisions to the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) and El Dorado County Air Pollution Control District (EDCAPCD) portions of the California State Implementation Plan (SIP). These revisions concern volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from polyester resin operations and the manufacture of foam products composed of polystyrene, polyethylene or polypropylene. We are proposing to approve local rules to regulate these emission sources under the Clean Air Act as amended in 1990 (CAA or the Act).
This proposal addresses the following local
rules: BAAQMD 852 and EDCAPCD 240. In the Rules and Regulations
section of this Federal Register, we are approving these local rules in
a direct final action without prior proposal because we believe these
SIP revisions are not controversial. If we receive adverse comments,
however, we will publish a timely withdrawal of the direct final rule
and address the comments in subsequent action based on this proposed
rule. We do not plan to open a second comment period, so anyone
interested in commenting should do so at this time. If we do not
receive adverse comments, no further activity is planned. For further information, please see the direct final action.
Dated: June 6, 2001.
