SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The CAA affords EPA a 45-day period to review and object to, as appropriate, operating permits proposed by state permitting authorities.

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. The December 4, 2017 petition requested that the Administrator object to the proposed title V operating permit issued by PADEP (Permit No. 54–00005) on the grounds that the proposed permit did not contain adequate monitoring and testing requirements to demonstrate compliance with the particulate matter (PM) emission limits contained in the permit. The Order denies the Petitioners’ claims, finding that the Petitioners failed to demonstrate that the Permit’s monitoring requirements for PM emissions are not adequate to assure compliance with the applicable PM emission limit, and explains the rationale behind EPA’s decision.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

[FRL-9977-35--Region 3]


Clean Air Act Operating Permit Program; Petition To Object to 
Title V Permit for Wheelabrator Frackville Energy; Pennsylvania

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice of final action.

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

SUMMARY: Pursuant to the Clean Air Act (CAA), the Environmental 
Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator signed an Order, dated April 6, 
2018, denying a petition to object to a title V operating permit, 
issued by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection 
(PADEP) to the Wheelabrator Frackville Energy facility in Schuylkill 
County, Pennsylvania. The Order responds to a December 4, 2017 
petition. The petition was submitted by the Environmental Integrity 
Project (EIP) and the Sierra Club (Petitioners). This Order constitutes 
final action on that petition 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, you contact the individual listed in the FOR FURTHER 
INFORMATION CONTACT section to view copies of the final Order, 
petition, and other supporting information. You may view the hard 
copies Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., excluding Federal 
holidays. If you wish to examine these documents, you should make an 
appointment at least 24 hours before the visiting day. The final Order 
is also available electronically at the following website: https://www.epa.gov/title-v-operating-permits/title-v-petition-database.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: David Talley, Air Protection Division, 
EPA Region III, telephone (215) 814-2117, or by email at 
[email protected].

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.
    The December 4, 2017 petition requested that the Administrator 
object to the proposed title V operating permit issued by PADEP (Permit 
No. 54-00005) on the grounds that the proposed permit did not contain 
adequate monitoring and testing requirements to demonstrate compliance 
with the particulate matter (PM) emission limits contained in the 
permit. The Order denies the Petitioners' claims, finding that the 
Petitioners failed to demonstrate that the Permit's monitoring 
requirements for PM emissions are not adequate to assure compliance 
with the applicable PM emission limit, and explains the rationale 
behind EPA's decision.

    Dated: April 19, 2018.

Regional Administrator, Region III.
