See In re Pio Pico Energy Center PSD Permit No. SD 11–01, PSD Appeal Nos. 12–04 through 12–06 (EAB, Aug. 2, 2013) (Order Remanding in Part and Denying Review in Part). The Board remanded to Region 9 the emission limits for particulate matter from the combustion turbines and directed Region 9 to prepare a revised Best Available Control Technology (BACT) analysis for particulate matter for the Project’s combustion turbines in accordance with the Board’s decision, including a new BACT determination, after consideration of all of the relevant information. The Board also directed Region 9 to reopen the public comment period to provide the public with an opportunity to comment on the revisions to its particulate matter BACT analysis.

The Board’s decision further stated that the Board was not requiring, and would not accept, an appeal to the Board of the final permit decision for the Project following remand in this case. In response to the EAB’s remand decision, Region 9 prepared a revised particulate matter BACT analysis and BACT determination for the emission limits for the Project’s combustion turbines in accordance with the Board’s order, and proposed revised permit conditions for such limits. In November of 2013, Region 9 issued a public notice seeking public comment on this revised analysis and these revised particulate matter permit conditions, and on December 17, 2013, Region 9 held a public hearing to receive such comment.

issued its final permit decision to PPLLC authorizing the construction 
and operation of the PPEC, PSD Permit No. SD 11-01, on February 28, 
2014.
    EPA Region 9 initially issued a final PSD permit decision to PPLLC 
for the PPEC on November 19, 2012. Three commenters filed petitions for 
review of the Region's November 19, 2012 PSD permit decision for the 
PPEC with EPA's EAB. On August 2, 2013, the Board issued a decision 
remanding in part and denying review in part of the Region's November 
19, 2012 PSD permit decision for the PPEC. See In re Pio Pico Energy 
Center PSD Permit No. SD 11-01, PSD Appeal Nos. 12-04 through 12-06 
(EAB, Aug. 2, 2013) (Order Remanding in Part and Denying Review in

particulate matter from the combustion turbines and directed Region 9 
to prepare a revised Best Available Control Technology (BACT) analysis 
for particulate matter for the Project's combustion turbines in 
accordance with the Board's decision, including a new BACT 
determination, after consideration of all of the relevant information. 
The Board also directed Region 9 to reopen the public comment period to 
provide the public with an opportunity to comment on the revisions to 
its particulate matter BACT analysis. The EAB denied review of all 
other issues.
    In addition, the Board's decision stated that once Region 9 issues 
a final permit decision following the public comment period required by 
the remand, the Region's final permit decision and the Board's decision 
in this matter would become final agency action subject to judicial 
review per 40 CFR 124.19(l). The Board's decision further stated that 
the Board was not requiring, and would not accept, an appeal to the 
Board of the final permit decision for the Project following remand in 
this case.
    In response to the EAB's remand decision, Region 9 prepared a 
revised particulate matter BACT analysis and BACT determination for the 
emission limits for the Project's combustion turbines in accordance 
with the Board's order, and proposed revised permit conditions for such 
limits. In November of 2013, Region 9 issued a public notice seeking 
public comment on this revised analysis and these revised particulate 
matter permit conditions, and on December 17, 2013, Region 9 held a 
public hearing to receive such comment.
    EPA has carefully reviewed each of the comments submitted and, 
after consideration of the expressed views of all commenters, the 
pertinent Federal statutes and regulations, and additional material 
relevant to the application and contained in our Administrative Record, 
EPA made a decision in accordance
