Approval and Promulgation of State Air Quality Plans for Designated Facilities and Pollutants, Maryland; Control of Emissions From Small Municipal Waste Combustor (SMWC) Units; Delegation of Authority
Document Number: 05-15921
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-08-11
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
EPA is proposing to approve the Maryland Department of the Environment's (MDE) request for delegation of authority to implement and enforce the Federal plan (68 FR 5144, January 31, 2003) for small municipal waste combustor (MWC) units under sections 111(d) and 129 of the Clean Air Act (the ``Act''). The request for delegation was submitted as a means to fulfill requirements of the Clean Air Act (the Act). In the Final Rules section of this Federal Register, EPA is approving Maryland's delegation request as a direct final rule without prior proposal because the Agency views this as a noncontroversial action and anticipate no adverse comments. A detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the direct final rule. If no adverse comments are received in response to this action, no further activity is contemplated. If EPA receives adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. EPA will not institute a second comment period. Any parties interested in commenting on this action should do so at this time.

The request for delegation was submitted to EPA on March 28, 2005. EPA and the MDE signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) which is the mechanism for the transfer of authority from EPA to the MDE. The MOA defines policies, responsibilities, and procedures pursuant to 40 CFR 62 subpart JJJ (the ``Federal plan'') and 40 CFR 60 subpart BBBB (Emission Guidelines), by which the Federal plan will be administered by both the EPA and the MDE.
