Section 505(b)(2) of the CAA and 40 CFR 70.8(d) authorize any person to petition the EPA Administrator to object to a title V operating permit within 60 days after the expiration of EPA’s 45day review period if EPA has not objected on its own initiative. 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. Petitioner submitted a petition regarding the Paradise Fossil Fuel Plant on January 9, 2010, requesting that EPA object to the CAA title V operating permit (#V–07–018R1). Petitioner alleged that the permit was not consistent with the CAA because it failed to include a prevention of significant deterioration (PSD) analysis for the three main boilers (Units 1–3) due to alleged major modifications undertaken at Paradise Fossil Fuel Plant VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:14 May 13, 2011 Jkt 223001 beginning in 1984 without TVA obtaining required PSD permits. On May 2, 2011, the Administrator issued an Order denying the petition. The Order explains EPA’s rationale for denying the petition. Dated: May 9, 2011. A.
