ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The EPA is finalizing approval of rules for the control of NOX emissions into the Texas State Implementation Plan (SIP). Texas submitted this SIP revision to us on May 30, 2007 (May 30, 2007 SIP revision), and we proposed approval of the May 30, 2007 SIP revision on July 11, 2008. The May 30, 2007 SIP revision to the Texas SIP is a substantive and nonsubstantive recodification and reformatting of the NOX rules currently approved in the Texas SIP, and also includes a part of the Nitrogen Oxides (NOX ) reductions needed for the Dallas/ Forth Worth (D/FW) area to attain the Federal 8-hour ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS). Today’s final rulemaking covers four separate actions. First, we are approving the repeal, from the Texas SIP, of the current Chapter 117 rules that correspond to the re-codified new rules and the revised and reformatted rules because the reformatted revision will better accommodate future additions/ revisions to the rules. Second, we are approving revisions to the Texas SIP that add new controls for the D/FW major NOX point sources. We are not, however, taking action on the Texas rules for cement plants in this document. We proposed approval of the rules for cement plants in a separate Federal Register document. Third, we are approving revisions to the Texas SIP that add new controls for D/FW minor NOX sources. Fourth, we are approving revisions to the Texas SIP that add new controls for combustion sources in East Texas. These NOX reductions will assist the D/FW area to attain the 8-hour ozone NAAQS. We are approving all of these actions as meeting the requirements of section 110 and part D of the Federal Clean Air Act (the Act). DATES: This rule will be effective on January 2, 2009. ADDRESSES: The EPA has established a docket for this action under Docket ID No. EPA–R06–OAR–2007–0523. All documents in the docket are listed on the www.regulations.gov Web site.

On May 30, 2007, TCEQ submitted rule revisions to 30 TAC, Chapter 117, ‘‘Control of Air Pollution from Nitrogen Compounds,’’ as a revision to the Texas SIP for point sources of NOX (May 30, 2007 SIP revision). The State of Texas submitted the May 30, 2007 SIP revision to us, to, among other things, provide a portion of the NOX reductions needed for the D/FW area to attain the Federal 8-hour ozone NAAQS. On July 11, 2008 (73 FR 39900) we proposed approval of the May 30, 2007 SIP revision. The public comment period for our proposal expired on August 11, 2008. We received relevant comments from TCEQ on our July 11, 2008 (73 FR 39900) publication, correcting or clarifying some of the citations used in our proposed approval document. We appreciate the State’s input, and have accordingly corrected those citations in today’s final document. See our Technical Support Document (TSD) prepared in conjunction with today’s final action for more information. We received no other comments on our proposed approval of the May 30, 2007 SIP revision. Therefore, we are finalizing our July 11, 2008 proposal (73 FR 39900), except section 117.9810, rulemaking action, today. We will act on section 117.9810 in a separate rulemaking action in future 1. We are taking four separate actions in today’s final action. First, we are approving revisions which involve repealing the current Chapter 117 rules from Texas SIP, and simultaneously approving into the 1 It came to our attention after publication of the proposal that we never took action on 30 TAC 117.571 that TCEQ repealed, and replaced with a new 30 TAC 117.9810. Therefore, there is no previously approved rule in the Texas SIP. We will need to evaluate the new rule 30 TAC 117.9810 for substance, and determine if it is approvable as a SIP revision. Our action will be taken in a separate Federal Register rulemaking. PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 73563 Texas SIP, a new reformatted Chapter 117. We are approving the repeal of the current Chapter 117, and the recodification and reformatting of Chapter 117 because the reformatted revision will better accommodate future additions/revisions to the rules and will maintain consistency between the State rules and Federal SIP. We are approving all of the non-substantive reformatted, restructured, renumbered, reorganized, and administrative revisions to the wording of Chapter 117 into Texas SIP. In our proposal, we clarified that the specifically identified rules do not make any changes to the substance of the rules that we previously approved into the Texas SIP, Chapter 117. By approving the repeal of the current Chapter 117 from the Texas SIP, and approving the new Chapter 117’s rules into the Texas SIP, we are making it clear that the new rules replace the previous rules in their entirety. We are approving these non-substantive reformatted, restructured, renumbered, reorganized, and administrative revisions to the wording of Chapter 117 under section 110 and part D of the Act. For a full list of affected sections see section C of this document. Second, we are approving revisions to the D/FW NOX major point source rules. Sections 117.410(a), 117.410(b) and 117.310(b) contain substantive changes in the reformatted Chapter 117 rules that result in additional NOX reductions. These reductions were not previously a part of EPA-approved Texas SIP, Chapter 117. Third, we are approving revisions to the D/FW minor source rules for the control of NOX. Section 117.2110(a) contains substantive changes in the reformatted Chapter 117 rules that result in additional NOX reductions which will help the D/FW area to attain the 1997 8-hour ozone standard. These reductions were not previously a part of EPA-approved Texas SIP, Chapter 117. Fourth, we are proposing to approve revisions to the rules for the control of NOX emissions from combustion sources in East Texas. Section 117.3310(a) contains substantive changes in the reformatted Chapter 117 rules that result in significant NOX emissions reductions. These reductions were not previously a part of EPAapproved Texas SIP, Chapter 117. Sections F through P of this document contain more information concerning each of these four actions. E:\FR\FM\03DER1.SGM 03DER1 73564 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 233 / Wednesday, December 3, 2008 / Rules and Regulations B. What is the relationship between the May 30, 2007 SIP revision and the ozone attainment demonstration plan for the D/FW area? The resulting emissions reductions of NOX, an ozone precursor, from this SIP revision will assist in bringing the D/FW area into attainment with the 1997 8hour ozone NAAQS, and help with the maintenance of the 1997 ozone NAAQS in the East and Central parts of the State. The D/FW 8-hour ozone nonattainment area (Collin, Dallas, Denton, Tarrant, Ellis, Johnson, Kaufman, Parker, and Rockwall Counties) is designated nonattainment, and classified as a moderate 8-hour nonattainment area for ozone. See 69 FR 23857 published on April 30, 2004. We proposed approval of the D/FW 8-hour ozone attainment demonstration plan in a separate rulemaking action, and will consider relevant written comments received on the D/FW 8-hour ozone attainment demonstration plan in a separate Federal Register publication. C. What sections of the May 30, 2007, SIP revision will become part of Texas SIP? Table 1 below contains a summary list of the sections of 30 TAC, Chapter 117 that we proposed for approval, in our July 11, 2008 (73 FR 39900) rulemaking action, for point sources of NOX to become part of the Texas SIP. Table 1 below includes both the sections with substantive changes and the nonsubstantive changes.

To determine whether or how your facility would be affected by this particular action, you should refer to the actual text of 30 TAC Chapter 117, and the June 8, 2007 issue of the Texas Register (32 TexReg 3206). You can find the entire TCEQ Chapter 117 rules at: PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 https://www.tceq.state.tx.us/rules/ indxpdf.html#117. Our TSD prepared for the July 11, 2008 (73 FR 39900) proposal contained detailed discussion of each of the above changes, and why EPA believed they should be approved into Texas SIP. We are approving the above sections of Table 1 into Texas SIP. E:\FR\FM\03DER1.SGM 03DER1 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 233 / Wednesday, December 3, 2008 / Rules and Regulations D. What sections of the May 30, 2007, SIP revision will not become part of Texas SIP? Per TCEQ’s request the following sections, listed in Table 2 below, of the May 30, 2007, SIP revision will not become a part of the EPA-approved Texas SIP. As stated in our proposal these rules mainly pertain to the control of ammonia or carbon monoxide emissions which are not ozone 73567 precursors and therefore, these rules are not necessary components of the Texas SIP. The rules listed in Table 2 are not already in the current Texas SIP and EPA continues to agree with Texas that these rules can remain outside the SIP. TABLE 2—SECTIONS OF CHAPTER 117 NOT IN EPA-APPROVED TEXAS SIP Section No. Explanation 117.110(c), 117.125, 117.210(c), 117.225, 117.310(c), 117.325, 117.410(d), 117.425, 117.1010(b), 117.1025, 117.1110(b), 117.1125, 117.1210(b), 117.1225, 117.1310(b), 117.1325, 117.2010(i), 117.2025, 117.2110(h), 117.2125, 117.3010(2), 117.3025, 117.3123(f), 117.3125, 117.3310(e), and 117.3325. Not a part of EPA-approved Texas SIP, and TCEQ continues to ask that these rules remain outside the SIP. Although the above sections of 30 TAC Chapter 117 will not become a part of the Texas SIP, they will continue to remain enforceable at the State level. As stated elsewhere in this document, we are taking no action upon 117.9810 today. We will take rulemaking action revision that we are not finalizing in today’s action. We will review and act upon the cement kiln related sections of the May 30, 2007 SIP revision in a separate rulemaking action. on 117.9810 in a separate publication in future. E.

H. What are NOX? Nitrogen oxides belong to the group of criteria air pollutants. NOX are produced from burning fuels, including gasoline and coal. Nitrogen oxides react VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:34 Dec 02, 2008 Jkt 217001 with volatile organic compounds (VOC) to form ozone or smog, and are also major components of acid rain. For more information on NOX see https:// www.epa.gov/air/urbanair/nox/. PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 See section 117.3300. I. What is Ozone and why do we regulate it? Ozone is a gas composed of three oxygen atoms. Ground level ozone is generally not emitted directly from a E:\FR\FM\03DER1.SGM 03DER1 73568 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 233 / Wednesday, December 3, 2008 / Rules and Regulations vehicle’s exhaust or an industrial smokestack, but is created by a chemical reaction between NOX and VOCs in the presence of sunlight and high ambient temperatures. Thus, ozone is known primarily as a summertime air pollutant. NOX and VOCs are precursors of ozone. Motor vehicle exhaust and industrial emissions, gasoline vapors, chemical solvents and natural sources emit NOX and VOCs. Urban areas tend to have high concentrations of ground-level ozone, but areas without significant industrial activity and with relatively low vehicular traffic are also subject to increased ozone levels because wind carries ozone and its precursors hundreds of miles from their sources. Repeated exposure to ozone pollution may cause lung damage. Even at very low concentrations, ground-level ozone triggers a variety of health problems including aggravated asthma, reduced lung capacity, and increased susceptibility to respiratory illnesses like pneumonia and bronchitis. It can also have detrimental effects on plants and ecosystems. J. What is a SIP? The SIP is a set of air pollution regulations, control strategies, other means or techniques and technical analyses developed by the state, to ensure that the state meets the NAAQS. The SIP is required by section 110 and other provisions of the Act. These SIPs can be extensive, containing state regulations or other enforceable documents and supporting information such as emissions inventories, monitoring networks, and modeling demonstrations. Each state must submit these regulations and control strategies to EPA for approval and incorporation into the Federally-enforceable SIP. Each Federally-approved SIP protects air quality primarily by addressing air pollution at its point of origin. K. What are the NOX emissions requirements for point sources in the D/ FW area that we are approving? We approved NOX emissions specifications for stationary sources in 66 FR 15195 published March 16, 2001. In addition to requiring NOX emissions control requirements for those sources, we are approving the following NOX emissions requirements for the following affected sources with emissions greater than 50 Tons Per Year (TPY) in the D/FW 8-hour ozone nonattainment area. We have included the Chapter 117 citation for each source category in the Table 6 below for convenience purposes.

We are approving these NOX emissions specifications under Part D of the Act because their resulting emissions reductions will assist Texas in demonstrating attainment of the 1997 8-hour ozone standard in the D/FW 8hour ozone nonattainment area. Therefore, we are approving these requirements into the Texas SIP. L. What are the NOX emission requirements for stationary diesel engines in the D/FW area that we are approving? This SIP revision requires reductions of NOX emissions from stationary diesel Citation 117.410(b)(13)(A). 117.410(b)(13)(B). engines in the D/FW area. The following Table 7 contains a summary of the NOX emission specifications for stationary diesel engines in the D/FW area. We have included the Chapter 117 citation for each source category in the Table 7 below for convenience purposes.

Also see section 117.2110(a)(3) concerning stationary diesel engines at minor sources within the D/FW 8-Hour Ozone Nonattainment Area. As stated in our July 11, 2008 (73 FR 39900) proposal, we are approving the above-listed NOX emission requirements for diesel engines because they are in agreement with those found in 40 CFR 89.112, and EPA’s Document Number 420–R–98–016 dated August 1998, titled ‘‘Final Regulatory Impact Analysis: Control of Emissions from Nonroad Diesel Engines.’’ In addition, the abovelisted NOX emission requirements for diesel engines are consistent with those we approved for similar units at Table VI of 66 FR 57230 published on November 14, 2001. We are therefore approving these NOX emission requirements into the Texas SIP under Part D of the Act because their resulting emissions reductions will assist Texas in demonstrating attainment of the 8hour ozone standard within the D/FW 8hour ozone nonattainment area. Citation M. What are the NOX emissions specifications for minor sources of NOX in the D/FW area that we are approving? These minor sources include stationary reciprocating internal combustion engines that are not a major source of NOX (emit, when uncontrolled, less than 50 Tons Per Year (TPY) of NOX). See sections 117.2100 and 117.2103 for more information.

As an alternative, a minor source from the Table 8 above located within the D/ FW area and having an annual capacity factor of 0.0383 or less may choose emissions specification of 0.060 lb/ MMBtu, instead. See 117.2110(a)(4). The NOX emissions requirements for the above-listed minor sources of NOX and their resulting emissions reductions will assist in demonstrating attainment of the 8-hour ozone NAAQS within the D/FW 8-hour ozone nonattainment area. Therefore, we are approving these requirements into the Texas SIP. N. What are the NOX emissions requirements for stationary reciprocating internal combustion engines (RICE) in East Texas that we are approving? The gas-fired stationary reciprocating internal combustion engines located in Anderson, Brazos, Burleson, Camp, Cass, Cherokee, Franklin, Freestone, Gregg, Grimes, Harrison, Henderson, Hill, Hopkins, Hunt, Lee, Leon, Limestone, Madison, Marion, Morris, Nacogdoches, Navarro, Panola, Rains, Robertson, Rusk, Shelby, Smith, Upshur, Van Zandt, or Wood Texas Counties are subject to these requirements. See section 117.3300 for more information. The following Table Citation 117.2110(a)(3)(B)(i). 117.2110(a)(3)(B)(ii). 117.2110(a)(3)(B)(iii). 9 contains NOX emissions requirements and related information for these affected units. On July 19, 2007 TCEQ announced implementation of Texas Senate Bill 2000, passed in 2007 by the 80th Texas Legislative Session. The Bill directs the TCEQ to develop an incentive grant program for the partial reimbursement of capital costs for installing nonselective catalytic reduction (NSCR) systems to reduce emissions of NOX from existing stationary gas-fired richburn compressor engines.

The size categories and NOX emissions requirements for these affected units are similar to those in place in other parts of the country. In our proposal and the corresponding TSD we explained how the revised state-wide residential water heater NOX emission requirements meet the requirements of section 110(l) of the Act. Therefore, we are finding that the revised state-wide residential water heater NOX emission requirements meet section 110(l) of the Act. Thus, we are approving the state-wide NOX emission requirements for water heaters, small boilers, and process heaters into the Texas SIP. P. What are the compliance schedules for NOX emissions sources that we are approving? The following Table 12 contains a summary of the NOX-related compliance schedules for major sources, utility generating units, and minor sources affected by the May 30, 2007 SIP revision.

II. Final Action Today, we are finalizing approval of revisions to the 30 TAC Chapter 117 into the Texas SIP. This rulemaking covers four separate actions. First, we are approving the repeal of all nonsubstantive changes to the SIP’s Chapter 117 rules and the reformatting of current Chapter 117 because the reformatted revision will better accommodate future additions/revisions to the rules. Second, we are approving substantive revisions to the current NOX SIP’s Chapter 117 rules for D/FW NOX major point sources. Third, we are approving substantive revisions to the current Texas SIP’s Chapter 117 rules for D/FW minor sources of NOX . Fourth, we are approving substantive revisions to the current Texas SIP’s Chapter 117 rules for combustion sources in East Texas. These NOX reductions will assist the D/ FW area in attaining the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS. Today, we are not taking action on the cement kiln related provisions of Chapter 117, see sections E and D of this document. We are also not taking action on new section 117.9810, see section C of this document. III. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews yshivers on PROD1PC62 with RULES Under the Clean Air Act, the Administrator is required to approve a SIP submission that complies with the provisions of the Act and applicable Federal regulations. 42 U.S.C. 7410(k); 40 CFR 52.02(a). Thus, in reviewing SIP submissions, EPA’s role is to approve state choices, provided that they meet the criteria of the Clean Air Act. 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 VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:34 Dec 02, 2008 Jkt 217001 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 Clean Air Act; • 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); and • 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. The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., as added by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, generally provides that before a rule may take effect, the agency promulgating the rule must submit a rule report, which includes a copy of the rule, to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the United States. EPA will submit a report containing this action and other PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 required information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States prior to publication of the rule in the Federal Register. A major rule cannot take effect until 60 days after it is published in the Federal Register. This action is not a ‘‘major rule’’ as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2). Under section 307(b)(1) of the Clean Air Act, petitions for judicial review of this action must be filed in the United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit by February 2, 2009. Filing a petition for reconsideration by the Administrator of this final rule does not affect the finality of this action for the purposes of judicial review nor does it extend the time within which a petition for judicial review may be filed, and shall not postpone the effectiveness of such rule or action. This action may not be challenged later in proceedings to enforce its requirements. (See section 307(b)(2).)

Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; Texas; Control 
of Emissions of Nitrogen Oxides (NOX) From Stationary Sources

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The EPA is finalizing approval of rules for the control of 
NOX emissions into the Texas State Implementation Plan 
(SIP). Texas submitted this SIP revision to us on May 30, 2007 (May 30, 
2007 SIP revision), and we proposed approval of the May 30, 2007 SIP 
revision on July 11, 2008. The May 30, 2007 SIP revision to the Texas 
SIP is a substantive and non-substantive recodification and 
reformatting of the NOX rules currently approved in the 
Texas SIP, and also includes a part of the Nitrogen Oxides 
(NOX ) reductions needed for the Dallas/Forth Worth (D/FW) 
area to attain the Federal 8-hour ozone National Ambient Air Quality 
Standard (NAAQS). Today's final rulemaking covers four separate 
actions. First, we are approving the repeal, from the Texas SIP, of the 
current Chapter 117 rules that correspond to the re-codified new rules 
and the revised and reformatted rules because the reformatted revision 
will better accommodate future additions/revisions to the rules. 
Second, we are approving revisions to the Texas SIP that add new 
controls for the D/FW major NOX point sources. We are not, 
however, taking action on the Texas rules for cement plants in this 
document. We proposed approval of the rules for cement plants in a 
separate Federal Register document. Third, we are approving revisions 
to the Texas SIP that add new controls for D/FW minor NOX 
sources. Fourth, we are approving revisions to the Texas SIP that add 
new controls for combustion sources in East Texas. These NOX 
reductions will assist the D/FW area to attain the 8-hour ozone NAAQS. 
We are approving all of these actions as meeting the requirements of 
section 110 and part D of the Federal Clean Air Act (the Act).

DATES: This rule will be effective on January 2, 2009.

ADDRESSES: The EPA has established a docket for this action under 
Docket ID No. EPA-R06-OAR-2007-0523. All documents in the docket are 
listed on the www.regulations.gov Web site.

revision to the Texas SIP for point sources of NOX (May 30, 
2007 SIP revision). The State of Texas submitted the May 30, 2007 SIP 
revision to us, to, among other things, provide a portion of the 
NOX reductions needed for the D/FW area to attain the 
Federal 8-hour ozone NAAQS.
    On July 11, 2008 (73 FR 39900) we proposed approval of the May 30, 
2007 SIP revision. The public comment period for our proposal expired 
on August 11, 2008.
    We received relevant comments from TCEQ on our July 11, 2008 (73 FR 
39900) publication, correcting or clarifying some of the citations used 
in our proposed approval document. We appreciate the State's input, and 
have accordingly corrected those citations in today's final document. 
See our Technical Support Document (TSD) prepared in conjunction with 
today's final action for more information.
    We received no other comments on our proposed approval of the May 
30, 2007 SIP revision. Therefore, we are finalizing our July 11, 2008 
proposal (73 FR 39900), except section 117.9810, rulemaking action, 
today. We will act on section 117.9810 in a separate rulemaking action 
in future \1\. We are taking four separate actions in today's final 
action.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ It came to our attention after publication of the proposal 
that we never took action on 30 TAC 117.571 that TCEQ repealed, and 
replaced with a new 30 TAC 117.9810. Therefore, there is no 
previously approved rule in the Texas SIP. We will need to evaluate 
the new rule 30 TAC 117.9810 for substance, and determine if it is 
approvable as a SIP revision. Our action will be taken in a separate 
Federal Register rulemaking.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    First, we are approving revisions which involve repealing the 
current Chapter 117 rules from Texas SIP, and simultaneously approving 
into the Texas SIP, a new reformatted Chapter 117. We are approving the 
repeal of the current Chapter 117, and the recodification and 
reformatting of Chapter 117 because the reformatted revision will 
better accommodate future additions/revisions to the rules and will 
maintain consistency between the State rules and Federal SIP. We are 
approving all of the non-substantive reformatted, restructured, 
renumbered, reorganized, and administrative revisions to the wording of 
Chapter 117 into Texas SIP. In our proposal, we clarified that the 
specifically identified rules do not make any changes to the substance 
of the rules that we previously approved into the Texas SIP, Chapter 
117. By approving the repeal of the current Chapter 117 from the Texas 
SIP, and approving the new Chapter 117's rules into the Texas SIP, we 
are making it clear that the new rules replace the previous rules in 
their entirety. We are approving these non-substantive reformatted, 
restructured, renumbered, reorganized, and administrative revisions to 
the wording of Chapter 117 under section 110 and part D of the Act. For 
a full list of affected sections see section C of this document.
    Second, we are approving revisions to the D/FW NOX major 
point source rules. Sections 117.410(a), 117.410(b) and 117.310(b) 
contain substantive changes in the reformatted Chapter 117 rules that 
result in additional NOX reductions. These reductions were 
not previously a part of EPA-approved Texas SIP, Chapter 117.
    Third, we are approving revisions to the D/FW minor source rules 
for the control of NOX. Section 117.2110(a) contains 
substantive changes in the reformatted Chapter 117 rules that result in 
additional NOX reductions which will help the D/FW area to 
attain the 1997 8-hour ozone standard. These reductions were not 
previously a part of EPA-approved Texas SIP, Chapter 117.
    Fourth, we are proposing to approve revisions to the rules for the 
control of NOX emissions from combustion sources in East 
Texas. Section 117.3310(a) contains substantive changes in the 
reformatted Chapter 117 rules that result in significant NOX 
emissions reductions. These reductions were not previously a part of 
EPA-approved Texas SIP, Chapter 117.
    Sections F through P of this document contain more information 
concerning each of these four actions.

[[Page 73564]]

B. What is the relationship between the May 30, 2007 SIP revision and 
the ozone attainment demonstration plan for the D/FW area?

    The resulting emissions reductions of NOX, an ozone 
precursor, from this SIP revision will assist in bringing the D/FW area 
into attainment with the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS, and help with the 
maintenance of the 1997 ozone NAAQS in the East and Central parts of 
the State. The D/FW 8-hour ozone nonattainment area (Collin, Dallas, 
Denton, Tarrant, Ellis, Johnson, Kaufman, Parker, and Rockwall 
Counties) is designated nonattainment, and classified as a moderate 8-
hour non-attainment area for ozone. See 69 FR 23857 published on April 
30, 2004. We proposed approval of the D/FW 8-hour ozone attainment 
demonstration plan in a separate rulemaking action, and will consider 
relevant written comments received on the D/FW 8-hour ozone attainment 
demonstration plan in a separate Federal Register publication.

C. What sections of the May 30, 2007, SIP revision will become part of 
Texas SIP?

    Table 1 below contains a summary list of the sections of 30 TAC, 
Chapter 117 that we proposed for approval, in our July 11, 2008 (73 FR 
39900) rulemaking action, for point sources of NOX to become 
part of the Texas SIP. Table 1 below includes both the sections with 
substantive changes and the nonsubstantive changes.

intended to be exhaustive, but rather to provide a guide for readers to 
generally understand which affected sources are likely to be required 
to comply with the NOX control requirements in conjunction 
with today's rulemaking action. To determine whether or how your 
facility would be affected by this particular action, you should refer 
to the actual text of 30 TAC Chapter 117, and the June 8, 2007 issue of 
the Texas Register (32 TexReg 3206). You can find the entire TCEQ 
Chapter 117 rules at: https://www.tceq.state.tx.us/rules/
indxpdf.html#117.
    Our TSD prepared for the July 11, 2008 (73 FR 39900) proposal 
contained detailed discussion of each of the above changes, and why EPA 
believed they should be approved into Texas SIP. We are approving the 
above sections of Table 1 into Texas SIP.

[[Page 73567]]

D. What sections of the May 30, 2007, SIP revision will not become part 
of Texas SIP?

    Per TCEQ's request the following sections, listed in Table 2 below, 
of the May 30, 2007, SIP revision will not become a part of the EPA-
approved Texas SIP. As stated in our proposal these rules mainly 
pertain to the control of ammonia or carbon monoxide emissions which 
are not ozone precursors and therefore, these rules are not necessary 
components of the Texas SIP. The rules listed in Table 2 are not 
already in the current Texas SIP and EPA continues to agree with Texas 
that these rules can remain outside the SIP.

 117.1010(b), 117.1025, 117.1110(b),            TCEQ continues to ask
 117.1125, 117.1210(b), 117.1225,               that these rules remain
 117.1310(b), 117.1325, 117.2010(i),            outside the SIP.
 117.2025, 117.2110(h), 117.2125,
 117.3010(2), 117.3025, 117.3123(f),
 117.3125, 117.3310(e), and 117.3325.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Although the above sections of 30 TAC Chapter 117 will not become a 
part of the Texas SIP, they will continue to remain enforceable at the 
State level. As stated elsewhere in this document, we are taking no 
action upon 117.9810 today. We will take rulemaking action on 117.9810 
in a separate publication in future.

E. What sections of the May 30, 2007, SIP revision are we reviewing in 
another Federal Register action?

    Table 3 below contains a listing of sections of the May 30, 2007, 
SIP revision that we are not finalizing in today's action. We will 
review and act upon the cement kiln related sections of the May 30, 
2007 SIP revision in a separate rulemaking action.

H. What are NOX?

    Nitrogen oxides belong to the group of criteria air pollutants. 
NOX are produced from burning fuels, including gasoline and 
coal. Nitrogen oxides react with volatile organic compounds (VOC) to 
form ozone or smog, and are also major components of acid rain. For 
more information on NOX see https://www.epa.gov/air/urbanair/
nox/.

I. What is Ozone and why do we regulate it?

    Ozone is a gas composed of three oxygen atoms. Ground level ozone 
is generally not emitted directly from a

[[Page 73568]]

vehicle's exhaust or an industrial smokestack, but is created by a 
chemical reaction between NOX and VOCs in the presence of 
sunlight and high ambient temperatures. Thus, ozone is known primarily 
as a summertime air pollutant. NOX and VOCs are precursors 
of ozone. Motor vehicle exhaust and industrial emissions, gasoline 
vapors, chemical solvents and natural sources emit NOX and 
VOCs. Urban areas tend to have high concentrations of ground-level 
ozone, but areas without significant industrial activity and with 
relatively low vehicular traffic are also subject to increased ozone 
levels because wind carries ozone and its precursors hundreds of miles 
from their sources.
    Repeated exposure to ozone pollution may cause lung damage. Even at 
very low concentrations, ground-level ozone triggers a variety of 
health problems including aggravated asthma, reduced lung capacity, and 
increased susceptibility to respiratory illnesses like pneumonia and 
bronchitis. It can also have detrimental effects on plants and 
ecosystems.

J. What is a SIP?

    The SIP is a set of air pollution regulations, control strategies, 
other means or techniques and technical analyses developed by the 
state, to ensure that the state meets the NAAQS. The SIP is required by 
section 110 and other provisions of the Act. These SIPs can be 
extensive, containing state regulations or other enforceable documents 
and supporting information such as emissions inventories, monitoring 
networks, and modeling demonstrations. Each state must submit these 
regulations and control strategies to EPA for approval and 
incorporation into the Federally-enforceable SIP. Each Federally-
approved SIP protects air quality primarily by addressing air pollution 
at its point of origin.

K. What are the NOX emissions requirements for point sources 
in the D/FW area that we are approving?

    We approved NOX emissions specifications for stationary 
sources in 66 FR 15195 published March 16, 2001. In addition to 
requiring NOX emissions control requirements for those 
sources, we are approving the following NOX emissions 
requirements for the following affected sources with emissions greater 
than 50 Tons Per Year (TPY) in the D/FW 8-hour ozone nonattainment 
area. We have included the Chapter 117 citation for each source 
category in the Table 6 below for convenience purposes.

    We are approving these NOX emissions specifications 
under Part D of the Act because their resulting emissions reductions 
will assist Texas in demonstrating attainment of the 1997 8-hour ozone 
standard in the D/FW 8-hour ozone nonattainment area. Therefore, we are 
approving these requirements into the Texas SIP.

L. What are the NOX emission requirements for stationary 
diesel engines in the D/FW area that we are approving?

    This SIP revision requires reductions of NOX emissions 
from stationary diesel engines in the D/FW area. The following Table 7 
contains a summary of the NOX emission specifications for 
stationary diesel engines in the D/FW area. We have included the 
Chapter 117 citation for each source category in the Table 7 below for 
convenience purposes.

    Also see section 117.2110(a)(3) concerning stationary diesel 
engines at minor sources within the D/FW 8-Hour Ozone Nonattainment 
Area.
    As stated in our July 11, 2008 (73 FR 39900) proposal, we are 
approving the above-listed NOX emission requirements for 
diesel engines because they are in agreement with those found in 40 CFR 
89.112, and EPA's Document Number 420-R-98-016 dated August 1998, 
titled ``Final Regulatory Impact Analysis: Control of Emissions from 
Nonroad Diesel Engines.'' In addition, the above-listed NOX 
emission requirements for diesel engines are consistent with those we 
approved for similar units at Table VI of 66 FR 57230 published on 
November 14, 2001. We are therefore approving these NOX 
emission requirements into the Texas SIP under Part D of the Act 
because their resulting emissions reductions will assist Texas in 
demonstrating attainment of the 8-hour ozone standard within the D/FW 
8-hour ozone nonattainment area.

M. What are the NOX emissions specifications for minor 
sources of NOX in the D/FW area that we are approving?

    These minor sources include stationary reciprocating internal 
combustion engines that are not a major source of NOX (emit, 
when uncontrolled, less than 50 Tons Per Year (TPY) of NOX). 
See sections 117.2100 and 117.2103 for more information.

    As an alternative, a minor source from the Table 8 above located 
within the D/FW area and having an annual capacity factor of 0.0383 or 
less may choose emissions specification of 0.060 lb/MMBtu, instead. See 
117.2110(a)(4).
    The NOX emissions requirements for the above-listed 
minor sources of NOX and their resulting emissions 
reductions will assist in demonstrating attainment of the 8-hour ozone 
NAAQS within the D/FW 8-hour ozone nonattainment area. Therefore, we 
are approving these requirements into the Texas SIP.

N. What are the NOX emissions requirements for stationary 
reciprocating internal combustion engines (RICE) in East Texas that we 
are approving?

    The gas-fired stationary reciprocating internal combustion engines 
located in Anderson, Brazos, Burleson, Camp, Cass, Cherokee, Franklin, 
Freestone, Gregg, Grimes, Harrison, Henderson, Hill, Hopkins, Hunt, 
Lee, Leon, Limestone, Madison, Marion, Morris, Nacogdoches, Navarro, 
Panola, Rains, Robertson, Rusk, Shelby, Smith, Upshur, Van Zandt, or 
Wood Texas Counties are subject to these requirements. See section 
117.3300 for more information. The following Table 9 contains 
NOX emissions requirements and related information for these 
affected units.
    On July 19, 2007 TCEQ announced implementation of Texas Senate Bill 
2000, passed in 2007 by the 80th Texas Legislative Session. The Bill 
directs the TCEQ to develop an incentive grant program for the partial 
reimbursement of capital costs for installing nonselective catalytic 
reduction (NSCR) systems to reduce emissions of NOX from 
existing stationary gas-fired rich-burn compressor engines. For more 
information see https://www.tceq.state.tx.us/implementation/air/rules/
sb2003.html (URL dating July 20, 2007).

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The NOX emissions requirements for the stationary 
reciprocating internal combustion engines in East and Central Texas and 
their resulting emissions reductions will assist in demonstrating 
attainment of the 8-hour ozone NAAQS within the Houston-Galveston-
Brazoria, D/FW, and Beaumont/Port Arthur areas. Furthermore, these 
reductions will contribute to the continued maintenance of the standard 
in the eastern half of the State of Texas, and they enhance the Texas 
SIP. Therefore, we are approving these requirements into the Texas SIP 
under part D, and sections 110 and 116 of the Act, respectively.

O. What are the NOX emissions requirements for state-wide 
water heaters, small boilers, and process heaters that we are 
approving?

    The water heaters, small boilers, and process heaters that use 
natural gas and have a rated capacity of 2 million Btu per hour or less 
are subject to these requirements. See 117.3200 and 117.3203 for more 
information. The following Tables 10 and 11 contain type and size 
categories, and NOX emissions requirements for these 
affected units.

    The size categories and NOX emissions requirements for 
these affected units are similar to those in place in other parts of 
the country. In our proposal and the corresponding TSD we explained how 
the revised state-wide residential water heater NOX emission 
requirements meet the requirements of section 110(l) of the Act. 
Therefore, we are finding that the revised state-wide residential water 
heater NOX emission requirements meet section 110(l) of the 
Act. Thus, we are approving the state-wide NOX emission 
requirements for water heaters, small boilers, and process heaters into 
the Texas SIP.

P. What are the compliance schedules for NOX emissions 
sources that we are approving?

    The following Table 12 contains a summary of the NOX-
related compliance schedules for major sources, utility generating 
units, and minor sources affected by the May 30, 2007 SIP revision. See 
sections 117.9000 through 117.9500 for more information.

    Including these compliance dates, summarized in Table 12 above, in 
the rule provides for enforceability and practicability of the 
NOX rule, and enhances the Texas SIP; therefore, we are 
approving them into the Texas SIP.

II. Final Action

    Today, we are finalizing approval of revisions to the 30 TAC 
Chapter 117 into the Texas SIP. This rulemaking covers four separate 
actions. First, we are approving the repeal of all non-substantive 
changes to the SIP's Chapter 117 rules and the reformatting of current 
Chapter 117 because the reformatted revision will better accommodate 
future additions/revisions to the rules. Second, we are approving 
substantive revisions to the current NOX SIP's Chapter 117 
rules for D/FW NOX major point sources. Third, we are 
approving substantive revisions to the current Texas SIP's Chapter 117 
rules for D/FW minor sources of NOX . Fourth, we are 
approving substantive revisions to the current Texas SIP's Chapter 117 
rules for combustion sources in East Texas. These NOX 
reductions will assist the D/FW area in attaining the 1997 8-hour ozone 
NAAQS. Today, we are not taking action on the cement kiln related 
provisions of Chapter 117, see sections E and D of this document. We 
are also not taking action on new section 117.9810, see section C of 
this document.

III. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    Under the Clean Air Act, the Administrator is required to approve a 
SIP submission that complies
