Clean Air Act Operating Permit Program; Petition to Object to Title V Permits for the Homer City and Bruce Mansfield Electric Generating Facilities; Pennsylvania, 48746-48747 [2014-19559]

Download as PDF 48746 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 159 / Monday, August 18, 2014 / Notices mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Respondents/affected entities: Owners or operators of paint stripping and miscellaneous surface coating operations area sources. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR Part 63, Subpart HHHHHH). Estimated number of respondents: 39,812 (total). Frequency of response: Initially, annually, and occasionally. Total estimated burden: 125,171. Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $12,157,130, includes $116,822 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the estimates: There is an apparent increase in the total estimated respondent cost burden as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. The increase is not due to any program changes. It primarily is attributed to corrections to the previous renewal’s burden calculations, which omitted technical and managerial labor burdens associated with painter certification recordkeeping activities conducted by commercial miscellaneous surface coating operations at area sources, as presented in Table 1a. This omission was inconsistent with the approach used throughout the remainder of the previous renewal and is inconsistent with the approach typically used by the Agency to calculate the respondent labor burden. Also, this renewal uses updated labor rates, which further contributed to the apparent increase in the respondent burden cost. This ICR references labor rates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to calculate the respondent cost burden. There is a decrease in the total O&M cost as compared to the previous renewal. This change also is not due to any program changes, and is attributed directly to corrections made to the previous renewal’s calculations. The previous renewal overestimated the number of initial report and notification that are required for new sources. This renewal revises the calculations which resulted in the observed decrease in the total O&M cost. Spencer Clark, Acting Director, Collection Strategies Division.

SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The CAA 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 CAA authorizes any person to petition the EPA Administrator within 60 days after the expiration of this review period to object to a state operating permit if EPA has not done so. Petitions must be based only on objections raised with reasonable specificity during the public comment period, unless the petitioner demonstrates that it was impracticable to raise these issues during the comment period or that the grounds for objection or other issue arose after the comment period. In the Homer City petition and Homer City supplemental petition (numbered III–2012–06 and III–2013–03 respectively), the petitioner sought the EPA objection on the following issues: (1) The proposed permit fails to include the general prohibition against air pollution found in Pennsylvania’s State Implementation Plan (PA SIP); (2) the proposed permit fails to include emission limits and averaging periods sufficient to prevent the Homer City plant from causing impermissible air pollution in the form of harmful concentrations of sulfur dioxide (SO2) in violation of the state adopted, federallyenforceable acid rain provisions and the PA SIP; (3) the proposed permit fails to require sufficient emissions limits and monitoring requirements to ensure compliance with particulate matter (PM) standards; (4) the proposed permit impermissibly claims to apply a permit shield to unidentified future projects; and (5) various miscellaneous claims not separately identified in the petition. The Homer City supplemental petition identifies the following bases on which the EPA should object: (1) Pennsylvania’s general prohibition on harmful air pollution is an applicable requirement with which the permit must assure compliance; and (2) Pennsylvania’s acid rain regulations are federally-enforceable applicable requirements with which the permit must assure compliance. The PaDEP issued the final Homer City operating permit (No. 32–00055) on November 16, 2012. In the Mansfield petition (numbered III–2012–07), the petitioners sought the EPA objection on the following issues: (1) The proposed permit fails to include numerical emission limits and monitoring sufficient to prevent the facility from causing impermissible air pollution in the form of harmful concentrations of SO2 as well as violations of an applicable acid rain provision; (2) the proposed permit fails SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\18AUN1.SGM 18AUN1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 159 / Monday, August 18, 2014 / Notices to require adequate monitoring to assure compliance with its PM emission limits; (3) the proposed permit fails to require adequate monitoring to assure compliance with its opacity limits; and (4) various miscellaneous claims not separately identified in the petition. The PaDEP issued the final operating permit (No. 04–00235) on February 8, 2013. The Order explains the reasons behind EPA’s decision to partially grant and partially deny the petition for objection. Pursuant to section 505(b)(2) of the CAA, the petitioner may seek judicial review of those portions of the Homer City and Bruce Mansfield petitions which EPA denied in the United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit.

Clean Air Act Operating Permit Program; Petition to Object to 
Title V Permits for the Homer City and Bruce Mansfield Electric 
Generating Facilities; Pennsylvania

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION: Notice of final action.

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

SUMMARY: Pursuant to the Clean Air Act (CAA), the Environmental 
Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator signed an Order, dated July 30, 
2014, partially granting and partially denying petitions to object to 
two state operating permits issued by the Pennsylvania Department of 
Environmental Protection (PaDEP). The Order responds to a September 12, 
2012 petition, and a May 15, 2013 supplement to that petition, relating 
to EME Homer City Generation L.P.'s Homer City plant in Indiana County, 
as well as an October 22, 2012 petition, which relates to First Energy 
Generation Corporation's Bruce Mansfield plant in Beaver County. The 
petitions were submitted by the Sierra Club. In the Bruce Mansfield 
petition, Sierra Club was joined by the Little Blue Regional Action 
Group (LBRAG), Environmental Integrity Project (EIP), Group Against 
Smog and Pollution (GASP), and Clean Air Council (CAC). This Order 
constitutes final action on those petitions requesting that the 
Administrator object to the issuance of the proposed CAA title V 
permit.

ADDRESSES: Copies of the final Order, the petition, and all pertinent 
information relating thereto are on file at the following location: 
EPA, Region III, Air Protection Division (APD), 1650 Arch St., 
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19103. EPA requests that if at all possible,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The CAA 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 CAA authorizes 
any person to petition the EPA Administrator within 60 days after the 
expiration of this review period to object to a state operating permit 
if EPA has not done so. Petitions must be based only on objections 
raised with reasonable specificity during the public comment period, 
unless the petitioner demonstrates that it was impracticable to raise 
these issues during the comment period or that the grounds for 
objection or other issue arose after the comment period.
    In the Homer City petition and Homer City supplemental petition 
(numbered III-2012-06 and III-2013-03 respectively), the petitioner 
sought the EPA objection on the following issues: (1) The proposed 
permit fails to include the general prohibition against air pollution 
found in Pennsylvania's State Implementation Plan (PA SIP); (2) the 
proposed permit fails to include emission limits and averaging periods 
sufficient to prevent the Homer City plant from causing impermissible 
air pollution in the form of harmful concentrations of sulfur dioxide 
(SO2) in violation of the state adopted, federally-
enforceable acid rain provisions and the PA SIP; (3) the proposed 
permit fails to require sufficient emissions limits and monitoring 
requirements to ensure compliance with particulate matter (PM) 
standards; (4) the proposed permit impermissibly claims to apply a 
permit shield to unidentified future projects; and (5) various 
miscellaneous claims not separately identified in the petition. The 
Homer City supplemental petition identifies the following bases on 
which the EPA should object: (1) Pennsylvania's general prohibition on 
harmful air pollution is an applicable requirement with which the 
permit must assure compliance; and (2) Pennsylvania's acid rain 
regulations are federally-enforceable applicable requirements with 
which the permit must assure compliance. The PaDEP issued the final 
Homer City operating permit (No. 32-00055) on November 16, 2012.
    In the Mansfield petition (numbered III-2012-07), the petitioners 
sought the EPA objection on the following issues: (1) The proposed 
permit fails to include numerical emission limits and monitoring 
sufficient to prevent the facility from causing impermissible air 
pollution in the form of harmful concentrations of SO2 as 
well as violations of an applicable acid rain provision; (2) the 
proposed permit fails

[[Page 48747]]

to require adequate monitoring to assure compliance with its PM 
emission limits; (3) the proposed permit fails to require adequate 
monitoring to assure compliance with its opacity limits; and (4) 
various miscellaneous claims not separately identified in the petition. 
The PaDEP issued the final operating permit (No. 04-00235) on February 
8, 2013. The Order explains the reasons behind EPA's decision to 
partially grant and partially deny the petition for objection. Pursuant 
to section 505(b)(2) of the CAA, the petitioner may seek judicial 
review of those portions of the Homer City and Bruce Mansfield 
petitions which EPA denied in the United States Court of Appeals for 
the appropriate circuit. Any petition for review shall be filed within 
60 days of this notice in accordance with the requirements of section 
307 of the CAA.
