Although these permits authorize the company to construct and operate, the source previously had sought and been issued a construction permit by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA). The federal construction permit supersedes the previously issued MPCA permit. The compressor station is composed of three natural gas-fired turbines and one natural gas-fired standby electrical generator, which the source uses to add pressure along a natural gas pipeline. The turbines are located in Cloquet, Minnesota on privately-owned fee land within the exterior boundaries of the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indian Reservation. DATES: During the public comment period, ending May 16, 2005, EPA received no comments on either the draft PSD or Title V permit. Therefore, in accordance with 40 CFR 124.15 and 71.11(i)(2)(iii), both permits became effective immediately upon permit issuance, June 30, 2005.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This supplemental information is organized as follows: A. What Is the Background Information? B. What Action Is EPA Taking? A. What Is the Background Information? Great Lakes operates nearly 2,000 miles of large diameter underground pipeline, through which it transports natural gas for delivery to customers in the midwest and northeast United States and eastern Canada. The pipeline’s 14 compressor stations, located approximately 75 miles apart, operate to keep natural gas moving through the system. Compressors operated at these stations add pressure to natural gas in the pipeline, causing it to flow to the next compressor station. The pipeline normally operates continuously, but at varying load, 24 hours per day and 365 days per year. CS #5 is located approximately 17 miles west of Cloquet, Minnesota, near VerDate jul<14>2003 15:52 Aug 08, 2005 Jkt 205001 the intersection of county roads 847 and 851, on the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indian Reservation in St. Louis County, Minnesota. The station consists of three stationary natural gas-fired turbines (EU–001 through EU–003), which drive three natural gas compressors, and one natural gas-fired standby electrical generator (EU–004), which provides electrical power for critical operations during temporary electrical power outages and during peak loading. Since CS #5 is a major stationary source, Great Lakes was required to obtain a preconstruction permit under 40 CFR 52.21. Furthermore, because CS #5 is subject to section 111 of the Clean Air Act and is located in Indian Country, 40 CFR 71.3(a) and 71.4(b) make it subject to the permitting requirements of 40 CFR part 71. On June 30, 2005, EPA issued a PSD construction permit (PSD–FDL– R50001–04–01) and a federal Title V Permit (No. V–FDL–R50006–04–01) which incorporates all applicable air quality requirements, including monitoring sufficient to yield reliable data on the source’s compliance with the permit. In accordance with the requirements of 40 CFR 71.11(d) and 124.10, EPA provided the public with the required 30 days to comment on the draft permit.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This supplemental information is organized 
as follows:

B. What Action Is EPA Taking?

A. What Is the Background Information?

    Great Lakes operates nearly 2,000 miles of large diameter 
underground pipeline, through which it transports natural gas for 
delivery to customers in the midwest and northeast United States and 
eastern Canada. The pipeline's 14 compressor stations, located 
approximately 75 miles apart, operate to keep natural gas moving

to natural gas in the pipeline, causing it to flow to the next 
compressor station. The pipeline normally operates continuously, but at 
varying load, 24 hours per day and 365 days per year.
    CS 5 is located approximately 17 miles west of Cloquet, 
Minnesota, near the intersection of county roads 847 and 851, on the 
Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indian Reservation in St. 
Louis County, Minnesota. The station consists of three stationary 
natural gas-fired turbines (EU-001 through EU-003), which drive three 
natural gas compressors, and one natural gas-fired standby electrical 
generator (EU-004), which provides electrical power for critical 
operations during temporary electrical power outages and during peak 
loading.
    Since CS 5 is a major stationary source, Great Lakes was 
required to obtain a preconstruction permit under 40 CFR 52.21. 
Furthermore, because CS 5 is subject to section 111 of the 
Clean Air Act and is located in Indian Country, 40 CFR 71.3(a) and 
71.4(b) make it subject to the permitting requirements of 40 CFR part 
71. On June 30, 2005, EPA issued a PSD construction permit (PSD-FDL-
R50001-04-01) and a federal Title V Permit (No. V-FDL-R50006-04-01) 
which incorporates all applicable air quality requirements, including 
monitoring sufficient to yield reliable data on the source's compliance 
with the permit. In accordance with the requirements of 40 CFR 71.11(d) 
and 124.10, EPA provided the public with the required 30 days to 
comment on the draft permit. EPA did not receive any comments during 
the public comment period.

B. What Action Is EPA Taking?

    EPA is notifying the public of the issuance of the PSD and Title V 
permits to Great Lakes Gas Transmission L.P. Because EPA did not 
receive comments on the permits, only persons who demonstrate that 
there are new grounds for review that were not reasonably foreseeable 
during the public comment period may, within 30 days of the date of 
this notice, seek review of the Title V operating permit pursuant to 40 
CFR 71.11.
