Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 250 / Thursday, December 30, 2010 / Proposed Rules between the NEPA planning process and the rulemaking process, may also be found on the PEPC Web site for this project http://parkplanning.nps.gov/ WASO. To determine the scope of issues to be addressed in the EIS and to identify significant issues related to the proposed regulations revision, the NPS is seeking public comment on the draft purpose and need, objectives, and issues and concerns related to revisions of the NPS regulations governing nonfederal oil and gas development on units of the National Park System. The NPS also seeks comment on possible alternatives it should consider for revising the regulations. The NPS invites the public to submit comments electronically on the NPS Planning, Environment and Public Comment (PEPC) Web site at http://parkplanning.nps.gov/WASO or by mail to the address cited in the ADDRESSES section during the 60-day comment period following the publication of this notice of intent in the Federal Register. The NPS does not plan to hold national public scoping meetings for this DEIS due to the programmatic nature of the regulations and the widely dispersed locations of the 45 parks that could be affected by the revisions. However, some individual parks may choose to hold public scoping meetings in their locality. Such meetings would be advertised by those parks using their normal media and mailing list contacts. At present, 12 park units contain existing nonfederal oil and gas development within their boundaries. The NPS promulgated regulations at 36 CFR part 9, subpart B (‘‘9B regulations’’) governing nonfederal oil and gas development in units of the National Park System in December 1978, with a January 1979 effective date. The regulations control all activities associated with nonfederal oil and gas development inside park boundaries where access is on, across, or through federally owned or controlled lands or waters. At this time 693 nonfederal oil and gas operations exist in a total of 12 units of the National Park System. The purpose of the 9B regulations is to avoid or minimize the adverse effects of nonfederal oil and gas operations on natural and cultural resources, visitor uses and experiences, provide for public safety, and minimize adverse effects on park infrastructure and management. Revisions to the 9B regulations are needed because: • The NPS has limited ability to address 53% of nonfederal oil and gas operations (grandfathered operations srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with PROPOSALS SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:52 Dec 29, 2010 Jkt 223001 and operations that do not require access across federally owned lands) that are currently exempt from the 9B regulatory requirements. • The existing regulations do not incorporate industry advances in technology and practices developed over the last 30 years. • The existing regulations limit the NPS ability to require adequate financial assurance from operators to ensure that funds are available to reclaim operation sites in the event operators fail to fulfill their obligations under an approved plan of operations. • There is an opportunity to have more understandable, comprehensive, and enforceable operating standards. • The NPS has limited means under the existing regulations to address minor violations of an approved plan of operations or the 9B regulations that would not justify a suspension. • The existing regulations do not clearly state the scope of NPS jurisdiction for directional drilling operations sited on lands outside park boundaries. • The existing regulations are not consistent with practices of other Federal agencies and private landowners by requiring compensation for privileged access across federally owned lands for operators accessing their leaseholds. • The existing regulations do not provide a means for the NPS, as appropriate, to recover the costs for processing and monitoring nonfederal oil and gas operations in parks. The NPS has identified the following draft objectives for revising the 9B regulations: • All operations within the boundary of NPS units are regulated under the 9B regulations. • Operating standards are updated to incorporate new scientific findings, technologies, and methods least damaging to park resources and values. • The public and park staff are protected from health and safety hazards associated with nonfederal oil and gas operations. • Financial assurance is adequate to ensure that park resources and values are protected. • The regulations provide a practical means for dealing with minor acts of noncompliance or with illegal operations (unauthorized operations). • Fair compensation for an operator’s use of federal land outside of its leasehold is obtained. • Regulations are more understandable to the regulated operating community, public, and park staff. • Directional drilling operations are regulated to retain incentives for PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 82363 operators to site operations outside of parks but still retain the NPS’ ability to protect park resources and values to the fullest extent practical. The draft and final 9B Regulations Revision EIS will be made available to all known interested parties and appropriate agencies. Full public participation by Federal, State, and local agencies as well as other concerned organizations and private citizens is invited throughout the preparation process of this document. The responsible official for this 9B Regulations Revision EIS is Herbert Frost, Associate Director for Natural Resources Stewardship and Science, 1849 C Street, NW., Room 3130, Washington, DC 20240–0001.

Make sure to submit your comments by the comment period deadline identified. II. What action is EPA taking today? EPA is proposing to approve Ohio’s revised offset lithographic and letterpress printing rule (OAC 3745–21– 22), submitted to EPA on March 9, 2010, into the Ohio SIP. This VOC rule applies to offset lithographic and letterpress printing operations in Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina, Portage and Summit Counties. III. What is the purpose of this action? The primary purpose of this action is to allow an alternative for demonstrating compliance with add-on control requirements, and to specify recordkeeping requirements, when a recipe log is maintained for each batch of fountain solution or cleaning solution. IV. What is EPA’s analysis of Ohio’s submitted VOC rule? General discussion of rule—This rule applies to offset lithographic and letterpress printing facilities in Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina, Portage and Summit Counties, the former Cleveland-Akron 8hour ozone nonattainment area whose actual VOC emissions, before the application of control systems, are equal to or greater than three tons of VOCs per rolling twelve-month period. Under this rule, a heatset web offset lithographic printing press, or a heatset web letterpress printing press, with potential VOC ink oil emissions from the press dryer that are greater than 25 tons per year before control must maintain dryer air pressure lower than the pressroom air pressure and have a control system that achieves 90 percent control (or 95 percent control for a control system installed after the effective date of this rule) or maintain a maximum VOC outlet concentration of 20 ppmv. This rule restricts the VOC content of fountain solutions used by offset lithographic presses, based on the type of offset lithographic press in use at a facility. Cleaning solutions used on subject lithographic or letterpress printing presses must either be at or below 70 percent by weight VOC, or be at or below ten millimeters of mercury at 20 degrees Celsius. This rule also contains the appropriate test methods E:\FR\FM\30DEP1.SGM 30DEP1 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 250 / Thursday, December 30, 2010 / Proposed Rules srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with PROPOSALS for determining the VOC concentration of the exhaust stream and the VOC content of the fountain solution and cleaning solution. This rule includes methods to determine the vapor pressure of the cleaning solution. The rule also includes monitoring and recordkeeping requirements to ensure that the control systems are operating properly, to establish whether the VOC content of the cleaning solution and fountain solution are in compliance with the applicable limits, and to establish whether an offset lithographic or letterpress printing facility is subject to one or more of the control requirements of the rule. This rule is consistent with the VOC control requirements in the September 2006 EPA guidance document ‘‘Control Techniques Guidelines for Offset Lithographic Printing and Letterpress Printing.’’ The Control Technique Guideline documents were required to be established by the CAA and establish RACT for their respective source categories. In addition, the recordkeeping and other provisions result in enforceable control requirements. Discussion of Rule Revisions The rule at 3745–21–22(E)(2)(a) specifies compliance dates for offset lithographic or letterpress printing facilities that are achieving compliance by using an add-on control device. These facilities are allowed to demonstrate compliance with an emission test conducted prior to the effective date of the rule if an approved EPA test method was used, the operation of the press(es) was consistent with their current operating conditions and, if requested, the test was witnessed by the Ohio EPA. This is a reasonable alternative which allows a printing facility to take advantage of a well documented test to demonstrate compliance and is therefore approvable. The rule at 3745–21–22(G)(3) specifies recordkeeping requirements for owners or operators maintaining a recipe log for each batch of fountain solution prepared for use in their press. This recipe log must identify all recipes used to prepare the as-applied fountain solution and clearly identify the VOC content of each concentrated alcohol substitute added to make the fountain solution as well as the proportions in which the fountain solution is mixed and the calculated VOC content of the final, mixed recipe. The rule at 3745–21–22(G)(4) specifies recordkeeping requirements for owners or operators maintaining a recipe log for each batch of cleaning solution prepared. This recipe log must VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:52 Dec 29, 2010 Jkt 223001 82365 identify all recipes used to prepare the as-applied cleaning solution and clearly identify the VOC content of each cleaning solution or the VOC composite partial vapor pressure. The revisions to the recordkeeping requirements in 3745–21–22(G)(3) and 3745–21–22(G)(4) are approvable because the resulting records are sufficient to determine whether complying fountain and cleaning solutions have been used. methods, under Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994). In addition, this rule does not have tribal implications as specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000), because the SIP is not approved to apply in Indian country located in the state, and EPA notes that it will not impose substantial direct costs on tribal governments or preempt tribal law. V. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews Under the CAA, the Administrator is required to approve a SIP submission that complies with the provisions of the CAA and applicable Federal regulations. 42 U.S.C. 7410(k); 40 CFR Part 52.02(a). Thus, in reviewing SIP submissions, EPA’s role is to approve State choices, provided that they meet the criteria of the CAA. Accordingly, this action merely approves state law as meeting Federal requirements and does not impose additional requirements beyond those imposed by State law. For that reason, this action: • Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget under Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993); • Does not impose an information collection burden under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.); • Is certified as not having a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.); • Does not contain any unfunded mandate or significantly or uniquely affect small governments, as described in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104–4); • Does not have Federalism implications as specified in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999); • Is not an economically significant regulatory action based on health or safety risks subject to Executive Order 13045 (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997); • Is not a significant regulatory action subject to Executive Order 13211 (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001); • Is not subject to requirements of Section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 note) because application of those requirements would be inconsistent with the CAA; and • Does not provide EPA with the discretionary authority to address, as appropriate, disproportionate human health or environmental effects, using practicable and legally permissible List of Subjects in 40 CFR Part 52 Environmental protection, Air pollution control, Intergovernmental relations, Nitrogen dioxide, Ozone, Reporting and recordkeeping requirements, Volatile organic compounds.

The partial disapproval requires EPA to promulgate a FIP and so EPA is also proposing a FIP in order to assure that GHG-emitting sources in Texas are able to proceed with plans to construct or expand.

II. What action is EPA taking today?

    EPA is proposing to approve Ohio's revised offset lithographic and 
letterpress printing rule (OAC 3745-21-22), submitted to EPA on March 
9, 2010, into the Ohio SIP. This VOC rule applies to offset 
lithographic and letterpress printing operations in Ashtabula, 
Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina, Portage and Summit Counties.

III. What is the purpose of this action?

    The primary purpose of this action is to allow an alternative for 
demonstrating compliance with add-on control requirements, and to 
specify recordkeeping requirements, when a recipe log is maintained for 
each batch of fountain solution or cleaning solution.

IV. What is EPA's analysis of Ohio's submitted VOC rule?

    General discussion of rule--This rule applies to offset 
lithographic and letterpress printing facilities in Ashtabula, 
Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina, Portage and Summit Counties, 
the former Cleveland-Akron 8-hour ozone nonattainment area whose actual 
VOC emissions, before the application of control systems, are equal to 
or greater than three tons of VOCs per rolling twelve-month period. 
Under this rule, a heatset web offset lithographic printing press, or a 
heatset web letterpress printing press, with potential VOC ink oil 
emissions from the press dryer that are greater than 25 tons per year 
before control must maintain dryer air pressure lower than the 
pressroom air pressure and have a control system that achieves 90 
percent control (or 95 percent control for a control system installed 
after the effective date of this rule) or maintain a maximum VOC outlet 
concentration of 20 ppmv. This rule restricts the VOC content of 
fountain solutions used by offset lithographic presses, based on the 
type of offset lithographic press in use at a facility. Cleaning 
solutions used on subject lithographic or letterpress printing presses 
must either be at or below 70 percent by weight VOC, or be at or below 
ten millimeters of mercury at 20 degrees Celsius. This rule also 
contains the appropriate test methods

[[Page 82365]]

for determining the VOC concentration of the exhaust stream and the VOC 
content of the fountain solution and cleaning solution. This rule 
includes methods to determine the vapor pressure of the cleaning 
solution. The rule also includes monitoring and recordkeeping 
requirements to ensure that the control systems are operating properly, 
to establish whether the VOC content of the cleaning solution and 
fountain solution are in compliance with the applicable limits, and to 
establish whether an offset lithographic or letterpress printing 
facility is subject to one or more of the control requirements of the 
rule. This rule is consistent with the VOC control requirements in the 
September 2006 EPA guidance document ``Control Techniques Guidelines 
for Offset Lithographic Printing and Letterpress Printing.'' The 
Control Technique Guideline documents were required to be established 
by the CAA and establish RACT for their respective source categories. 
In addition, the recordkeeping and other provisions result in 
enforceable control requirements.

Discussion of Rule Revisions

    The rule at 3745-21-22(E)(2)(a) specifies compliance dates for 
offset lithographic or letterpress printing facilities that are 
achieving compliance by using an add-on control device. These 
facilities are allowed to demonstrate compliance with an emission test 
conducted prior to the effective date of the rule if an approved EPA 
test method was used, the operation of the press(es) was consistent 
with their current operating conditions and, if requested, the test was 
witnessed by the Ohio EPA. This is a reasonable alternative which 
allows a printing facility to take advantage of a well documented test 
to demonstrate compliance and is therefore approvable.
    The rule at 3745-21-22(G)(3) specifies recordkeeping requirements 
for owners or operators maintaining a recipe log for each batch of 
fountain solution prepared for use in their press. This recipe log must 
identify all recipes used to prepare the as-applied fountain solution 
and clearly identify the VOC content of each concentrated alcohol 
substitute added to make the fountain solution as well as the 
proportions in which the fountain solution is mixed and the calculated 
VOC content of the final, mixed recipe.
    The rule at 3745-21-22(G)(4) specifies recordkeeping requirements 
for owners or operators maintaining a recipe log for each batch of 
cleaning solution prepared. This recipe log must identify all recipes 
used to prepare the as-applied cleaning solution and clearly identify 
the VOC content of each cleaning solution or the VOC composite partial 
vapor pressure. The revisions to the recordkeeping requirements in 
3745-21-22(G)(3) and 3745-21-22(G)(4) are approvable because the 
resulting records are sufficient to determine whether complying 
fountain and cleaning solutions have been used.

V. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    Under the CAA, the Administrator is required to approve a SIP 
submission that complies with the provisions of the CAA and applicable 
Federal regulations. 42 U.S.C. 7410(k); 40 CFR Part 52.02(a). Thus, in 
reviewing SIP submissions, EPA's role is to approve State choices, 
provided that they meet the criteria of the CAA. Accordingly, this 
action merely approves state law as meeting Federal requirements and 
does not impose additional requirements beyond those imposed by State 
law. For that reason, this action:
     Is not a ``significant regulatory action'' subject to 
review by the Office of Management and Budget under Executive Order 
12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993);
     Does not impose an information collection burden under the 
provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.);
     Is certified as not having a significant economic impact 
on a substantial number of small entities under the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.);
     Does not contain any unfunded mandate or significantly or 
uniquely affect small governments, as described in the Unfunded 
Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-4);
     Does not have Federalism implications as specified in 
Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999);
     Is not an economically significant regulatory action based 
on health or safety risks subject to Executive Order 13045 (62 FR 
19885, April 23, 1997);
     Is not a significant regulatory action subject to 
Executive Order 13211 (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001);
     Is not subject to requirements of Section 12(d) of the 
National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 
note) because application of those requirements would be inconsistent 
with the CAA; and
     Does not provide EPA with the discretionary authority to 
address, as appropriate, disproportionate human health or environmental 
effects, using practicable and legally permissible methods, under 
Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994).

In addition, this rule does not have tribal implications as specified 
by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000), because the 
SIP is not approved to apply in Indian country located in the state, 
and EPA notes that it will not impose substantial direct costs on 
tribal governments or preempt tribal law.
