Summary of Proposed Action The draft general permit is for a single source category, gasoline dispensing facilities (GDFs), and would be available in certain areas of Indian country that are within the geographical boundaries of California. This includes areas located in an Indian reservation or in another area of Indian country (as defined in 18 U.S.C. 1151) over which an Indian tribe, or the EPA, has demonstrated that the tribe has jurisdiction and where there is no EPAapproved minor NSR program in place. The EPA is proposing this general permit as an option for CAA minor NSR preconstruction permitting to help streamline the EPA’s permitting of certain minor sources that construct or modify in Indian country and belong to the GDF source category. The primary pollutant of concern for GDFs that may use this general permit is volatile organic compounds (VOC), which are emitted from storage tanks and gasoline dispensing units at GDFs. Some GDFs may also have emergency engines, but only those sources with emergency engines that are exempt from minor NSR permitting requirements may use this general permit. Emissions of all other regulated NSR pollutants from new or modified GDF sources that may use the general permit are expected to be below the minor NSR permitting thresholds in 40 CFR 49.153. This draft general permit regulates VOC emissions from GDFs, and includes emission limitations that require each GDF to control emissions from storage tanks during unloading of the gasoline cargo from the tanker truck, using what are known as Stage I controls. In addition, the draft general permit requires GDFs in ozone nonattainment areas to limit VOC emissions resulting from vehicle refueling by recovering vapors displaced from the vehicle fuel tank, using pumpbased controls known as Stage II controls. There are also limits on the amount of gasoline each GDF can E:\FR\FM\01DEN1.SGM 01DEN1

    On October 28, 2013, EPA received the Sierra Club Petition which 
alleged that WDNR applied an erroneous interpretation of the ``routine 
maintenance, repair, and replacement'' exemption for a superheater 
boiler tube replacement project from 2005, and that the project 
resulted in a significant net emissions increase triggering New Source 
Review (NSR). On November 19, 2013, EPA received the Appleton Coated/
WPC Petition which alleged that the permit is deficient because it 
lacks a permit shield from NSR requirements for the 2005 superheater 
boiler tube replacement project.
    On October 14, 2016, the Administrator issued an Order denying both 
petitions. The Order explains the reasons behind EPA's conclusion.
