ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is approving a state implementation plan (SIP) revision submitted by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (Pennsylvania). The revision updates Philadelphia County’s portion of the Pennsylvania SIP, which includes regulations concerning sulfur content in fuel oil. Implementation of these provisions will reduce the amount of sulfur in fuel oils used in combustion units in Philadelphia County. EPA is approving these revisions to the Pennsylvania SIP in accordance with the requirements of the Clean Air Act (CAA). DATES: This final rule is effective on July 1, 2019. ADDRESSES: EPA has established a docket for this action under Docket ID Number EPA–R03–OAR–2018–0722. All documents in the docket are listed on the https://www.regulations.gov website.

The telephone number is (215) 814–2023. Ms. Trouba can also be reached via electronic mail at trouba.erin@epa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Jkt 247001 On March 19, 2019 (84 FR 9991), EPA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. In the NPRM, EPA proposed approval of lower commercial fuel oil sulfur limits for combustion and sale in Philadelphia County into the Pennsylvania SIP. The formal SIP revision was submitted by the City of Philadelphia, Air Management Services (AMS) through the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) on June 21, 2018. The SIP revision consists of an amendment to 40 CFR 52.2020(c)(3), the Philadelphia County portion of the SIP, in order to implement provisions for lower sulfur levels in commercial fuel oil in Philadelphia County. II. Summary of SIP Revision and EPA Analysis Through its June 2018 SIP revision submittal, Pennsylvania sought to revise its SIP by including amendments to Section 3–207 of the Air Management Code (AMC), as well as Sections I, II, and III of Air Management Regulation (AMR) III (Control of Emissions of Oxides and Sulfur Compounds). The revision lowers the maximum allowable sulfur content in number 2 and lighter fuel oils from 0.2 percent (%) by weight (2,000 parts per million (ppm)) to 0.0015% by weight (15 ppm) and lowers the maximum allowable sulfur content in number 4 fuel oils from 0.3% by weight (3,000 ppm) to 0.25% by weight (2,500 ppm). The revision also lowers the permissible sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions from the combustion of PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 number 4 fuel oils and lowers the sulfur oxides emission limit to 0.4 ppm for any 5-minute period when measured at ground level. The revision allows commercial fuel oil stored by the ultimate consumer at its facility prior to the applicable compliance date, July 1, 2015, to be used after that applicable compliance date, if the fuel oil met the applicable maximum allowable sulfur content at the time it was stored, provided that certain conditions are met. Also included in the revised provisions are exemptions for using noncompliant fuel oil beyond July 1, 2020 and an emergency conditions provision. Other specific requirements of lower commercial fuel oil sulfur limits for combustion and sale in Philadelphia County and the rationale for EPA’s proposed action are explained in the NPRM, which is available in the docket for this rulemaking located at https:// www.regulations.gov, Docket ID Number EPA–R03–OAR–2018–0722. No adverse public comments were received on the NPRM. Two identical positive public comments were received. III. Final Action EPA is approving Pennsylvania’s June 21, 2018 SIP submittal that lowers commercial fuel oil sulfur limits for combustion units in Philadelphia County as a revision to the Pennsylvania SIP. With this approval, EPA will incorporate amended AMC Section 3– 207 and AMR III Sections I, II, and III into the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s SIP. IV. Incorporation by Reference In this document, EPA is finalizing regulatory text that includes incorporation by reference. In accordance with requirements of 1 CFR 51.5, EPA is finalizing the incorporation by reference of lower commercial fuel oil sulfur limits for combustion units in Philadelphia County discussed in Sections I and II of this action. EPA has made, and will continue to make, these materials generally available through www.regulations.gov and at the EPA Region III Office (please contact the person identified in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section of this preamble for more information). Therefore, these materials have been approved by EPA for inclusion in the SIP, have been incorporated by reference by EPA into that plan, are fully Federally enforceable under sections 110 and 113 of the CAA as of the effective date of the final rulemaking of EPA’s approval, and will be E:\FR\FM\31MYR1.SGM 31MYR1
