Technical Correction to the National Ambient Air Quality Standards for Particulate Matter
Document Number: 2017-05474
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-03-20
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is taking final action to make a technical correction to equation 2 in appendix N to part 50, section 4.4(b) of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for Particulate Matter. Equation 2 in appendix N describes an intermediate step in the calculation of the design value for the annual PM2.5 (particles with an aerodynamic diameter less than or equal to a nominal 2.5 micrometers) NAAQS. This action corrects Equation 2 to properly account for cases where a site has quarters without daily values and passes the minimum quarterly value data substitution test. This change accurately reflects the intended calculation of the annual PM2.5 design value and is consistent with the text of section 4.1 in appendix N to part 50.

Type: Rule
Date: 2017-03-20
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
Alabama has applied to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for final authorization of changes to its hazardous waste program under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA).

Unless EPA receives written comments that oppose this authorization during the comment period, the decision to authorize Alabama's changes to its hazardous waste program will take effect. If EPA receives comments that oppose this action, EPA will publish a document in the Federal Register withdrawing today's direct final rule before it takes effect, and the separate document published in today's ``Proposed Rules'' section of this Federal Register will serve as the proposal to authorize the changes.
