Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 136 / Tuesday, July 17, 2007 / Notices FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Pamela Blakley, Chief, Air Permits Section, Air Programs Branch, Air and Radiation Division, EPA, Region 5, 77 West Jackson Boulevard, Chicago, Illinois 60604, telephone (312) 886– 4447. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Act affords EPA a 45-day period to review, and object to as appropriate, operating permits proposed by state permitting authorities. Section 505(b)(2) of the Act authorizes any person to petition the EPA Administrator within 60 days after the expiration of the EPA review period to object to state operating permits if EPA has not done so. Petitions must be based only on objections to the permit that were raised with reasonable specificity during the public comment period provided by the state, unless the petitioner demonstrates that it was impracticable to raise these issues during the comment period, or the grounds for the issues arose after this period. On November 28, 2005 and April 5, 2006, the EPA received four petitions from the Illinois Attorney General, the Chicago Legal Clinic and the Environmental Law and Policy Center requesting that EPA object to the proposed Title V operating permits for the Midwest Generation, LCC stations. The petitions raise issues regarding the lack of compliance schedules in the permits. The petitioners alleged that the proposed permits are legally inadequate because: (1) Self-reporting by Midwest Generation based on continuous opacity monitoring provides evidence that all of the Midwest Generation facilities are in violation of their opacity limitations, yet the permits lack the required compliance schedules; and (2) IEPA failed to require compliance schedules to bring Midwest Generation into compliance with New Source Review requirements. On June 14, 2007 and June 18, 2007, the Administrator issued orders denying the petitions. The orders explain the reasons behind EPA’s conclusion to deny the petitions. Dated: July 5, 2007. Bharat Mathur, Deputy Regional Administrator, Region 5. [FR Doc.
