SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On February 1, 2018, the Coast Guard published a temporary deviation entitled, ‘‘Drawbridge Operation Regulation; New Jersey Intracoastal Waterway, Beach Thorofare, Margate City, NJ’’ in the Federal Register (83 FR 4585). That document resulted from Ole Hansen and Sons, Inc.’s, request for a temporary deviation, occurring from 7 a.m. on February 26, 2018, through 7 p.m. on March 12, 2018, from normal operation of the drawbridge to facilitate bridge maintenance. Subsequent to the approval of that request, Ole Hansen & Sons Inc. requested a modification, extending the temporary deviation from 7:01 p.m. on March 12, 2018, through 7 p.m. on March 26, 2018, to allow more time to perform and complete bridge maintenance unable to be performed due to extreme inclement weather events during the previous temporary deviation. Therefore, the Coast Guard modifies the dates of the previously approved temporary deviation to allow the Margate Boulevard/Margate Bridge that carries Margate Boulevard across the New Jersey Intracoastal Waterway, Beach Thorofare, mile 74.0, at Margate City, NJ, to remain in the closed-tonavigation position from 7:01 p.m. on March 12, 2018, through 7 p.m., on March 26, 2018.

The Beach Thorofare is used by a variety of vessels including recreational vessels. The Coast Guard has carefully coordinated the restrictions with waterway users in publishing this temporary deviation. Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed position may do so at any time. The bridge will not be able to open for emergencies and there is no immediate alternative route for vessels unable to pass through the bridge in the closed position.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mike Gordon, (215) 814–2039, or by email at gordon.mike@epa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background Sections 111(d) and 129 of the CAA require states to submit plans to control certain pollutants (designated pollutants) at existing solid waste combustor facilities (designated facilities) whenever standards of performance have been established under section 111(b) for new sources of the same type, and EPA has established emission guidelines (EG) for such existing sources. CAA section 129 directs EPA to establish standards of performance for new sources and emissions guidelines for existing sources for each category of solid waste incineration unit. CAA section 129(a) and (b). EPA also must specify numerical emissions limitations for particulate matter (total and fine), opacity (as appropriate), sulfur dioxide, hydrogen chloride, oxides of nitrogen, carbon monoxide, lead, cadmium, mercury, and dioxins and dibenzofurans. CAA section 129(a)(4). On September 15, 1997 (62 FR 48348), EPA first promulgated HMIWI unit new source performance standards, 40 CFR part 60, subpart Ec, and emission guidelines for existing facilities, subpart Ce. These regulations were then amended on October 6, 2009 (74 FR 51368) and on April 4, 2011 (76 FR 18407). The designated facilities to which the EG apply are existing HMIWI units that: (1) Commenced construction on or before June 20, 1996, or for which modification was commenced on or before March 16, 1998; or (2) commenced construction after June 20, 1996 but no later than December 1, 2008, or for which modification commenced after March 16, 1998 but no later than April 6, 2010, with limited exceptions as provided in paragraphs 40 CFR 60.32e(b) through (h). Subpart B and Ce of 40 CFR part 60 establish procedures to be followed and requirements to be met in the development and submission of state plans for controlling designated pollutants from existing HMIWI facilities. Also, 40 CFR part 62 provides the procedural framework for the submission of these plans. When existing designated facilities are located in a state, the state must then develop and submit a plan for the control of the PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 designated pollutant. However, 40 CFR 60.23(b) and 62.06 provide that if there are no existing sources of the designated pollutant in the state, the state may submit a letter of certification to that effect (i.e., negative declaration) in lieu of a plan. The negative declaration exempts the state from the requirements of subpart B that require the submittal of a section 111(d)/129(b) plan. On October 12, 2017 (82 FR 47398 and 82 FR 47421), EPA simultaneously published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPR) and a direct final rule (DFR) for the City of Philadelphia approving a negative declaration from Philadelphia AMS that there are no existing HMIWI units subject to the requirements of sections 111(d) and 129 of the CAA in its respective air pollution control jurisdiction. EPA explained that if it did not receive an adverse comment on the NPR, the DFR would take effect with no further administrative action. EPA received an adverse comment on the NPR and attempted to withdraw the DFR prior to its effective date of December 11, 2017. However, EPA inadvertently did not withdraw the DFR prior to that date and the rule prematurely became effective on December 11, 2017, revising 40 CFR part 62 to reflect the approval of the negative declaration. In the NPR, EPA had proposed to approve the negative declaration. In this final rulemaking, EPA is responding to the comment submitted on the proposed approval of the negative declaration and approving the negative declaration. This action supersedes the prior DFR which went in to effect prematurely and had an effective date of December 11, 2017. II. State Submittal and EPA Analysis Philadelphia AMS has determined that there are no existing HMIWI units subject to the requirements of sections 111(d) and 129 of the CAA in its respective air pollution control jurisdiction. Accordingly, Philadelphia AMS submitted a negative declaration letter to EPA certifying this fact on August 2, 2011. The negative declaration letter and EPA’s technical support document for this action are available in the docket for this rulemaking and online at www.regulations.gov. III. Public Comment and EPA Response EPA received one adverse comment on the proposed approval of the negative declaration for existing HMIWI units submitted by Philadelphia AMS. Comment: The commenter stated that EPA must ensure that no additional HMIWI units have been constructed since the time of Philadelphia’s E:\FR\FM\15MRR1.SGM 15MRR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On February 1, 2018, the Coast Guard 
published a temporary deviation entitled, ``Drawbridge Operation 
Regulation; New Jersey Intracoastal Waterway, Beach Thorofare, Margate 
City, NJ'' in the Federal Register (83 FR 4585). That document resulted 
from Ole Hansen and Sons, Inc.'s, request for a temporary deviation, 
occurring from 7 a.m. on February 26, 2018, through 7 p.m. on March 12, 
2018, from normal operation of the drawbridge to facilitate bridge 
maintenance. Subsequent to the approval of that request, Ole Hansen & 
Sons Inc. requested a modification, extending the temporary deviation 
from 7:01 p.m. on March 12, 2018, through 7 p.m. on March 26, 2018, to 
allow more time to perform and complete bridge maintenance unable to be 
performed due to extreme inclement weather events during the previous 
temporary deviation. Therefore, the Coast Guard modifies the dates of 
the previously approved temporary deviation to allow the Margate 
Boulevard/Margate Bridge that carries Margate Boulevard across the New 
Jersey Intracoastal Waterway, Beach Thorofare, mile 74.0, at Margate 
City, NJ, to remain in the closed-to-navigation position from 7:01 p.m. 
on March 12, 2018, through 7 p.m., on March 26, 2018. The bridge has a 
vertical clearance of 14 feet above mean high water in the close 
position and unlimited clearance in the open position. The current 
operating schedule is set out in 33 CFR 117.5.
    The Beach Thorofare is used by a variety of vessels including 
recreational vessels. The Coast Guard has carefully coordinated the 
restrictions with waterway users in publishing this temporary 
deviation.
    Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed position may 
do so at any time. The bridge will not be able to open for emergencies 
and there is no immediate alternative route for vessels unable to pass 
through the bridge in the closed position. The Coast Guard will also 
inform the users of the waterways through our Local and Broadcast 
Notices to Mariners of the change in operating schedule for the bridge 
so that vessel operators can arrange their transit

to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation.
    In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to 
its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the effective 
period of this temporary deviation. This deviation from the operating 
regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35.
