Transcontinental Gas Pipeline Corporation Station 140 (Transco) is the only facility in South Carolina affected by the NOX SIP Call Phase II. The intended effect of this SIP revision is to reduce emissions of NOX originating in the State of South VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:23 Apr 22, 2009 Jkt 217001 Carolina to help attain and maintain the national ambient air quality standard for ozone. This action is being taken pursuant to section 110 of the Clean Air Act.

ACTION: Proposed rule. SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to make a determination under the Clean Air Act (CAA) that the Detroit-Ann Arbor nonattainment area has attained the 8hour ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS). The DetroitAnn Arbor area includes Lenawee, Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland, St. Clair, Washtenaw, and Wayne Counties. This determination is based on quality-assured ambient air quality monitoring data for the 2006–2008 ozone seasons that demonstrate that the 8-hour ozone NAAQS has been attained in the area. EPA is proposing to approve a request from the State of Michigan to redesignate the Detroit-Ann Arbor area to attainment of the 8-hour ozone NAAQS. The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) submitted this request on March 6, 2009. In proposing to approve this request EPA is also proposing to approve, as a revision to the Michigan State Implementation Plan (SIP), the State’s plan for maintaining the 8-hour ozone NAAQS through 2020 in the area. EPA is proposing to approve the 2005 base year emissions inventory for the Detroit-Ann Arbor area as meeting the requirements of section 182(a)(1) of the CAA. EPA also finds adequate and is proposing to approve the State’s 2020 E:\FR\FM\23APP1.SGM 23APP1

Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; South 
Carolina; NOX SIP Call Phase II

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to approve a source-specific State 
Implementation Plan (SIP) revision submitted by the South Carolina 
Department of Health and Environmental Control on April 14, 2005. This 
revision responds to EPA's regulation entitled, ``Interstate Ozone 
Transport: Response to Court Decisions on the Nitrogen Oxides 
(NOX) SIP Call, NOX SIP Call Technical 
Amendments, and Section 126 Rules,'' otherwise known as the 
``NOX SIP Call Phase II.'' This revision meets the 
requirements of the NOX SIP Call Phase II, which requires 
South Carolina to submit NOX SIP Call Phase II revisions 
necessary to achieve applicable, incremental reductions of 
NOX, including emission reductions from large internal 
combustion engines. Transcontinental Gas Pipeline Corporation Station 
140 (Transco) is the only facility in South Carolina affected by the 
NOX SIP Call Phase II. The intended effect of this SIP 
revision is to reduce emissions of NOX originating in the 
State of South Carolina to help attain and maintain the national 
ambient air quality standard for ozone. This action is being taken 
pursuant to section 110 of the Clean Air Act.
    In the Final Rules Section of this Federal Register, EPA is 
approving the State's source-specific SIP revision as a direct final 
rule without prior proposal because the Agency views this as a 
noncontroversial submittal and anticipates no adverse comments. A 
detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the direct final 
rule. If no adverse comments are received in response to this rule, no 
further activity is contemplated. If EPA receives adverse comments, the 
direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received 
will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed 
rule. EPA will not institute a second comment period on this document. 
Any parties interested in commenting on this document should do so at 
this time.

DATES: Written comments must be received on or before May 26, 2009.
