Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plan; South Dakota; Revisions to New Source Review Rules
Document Number: E7-1621
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-02-01
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
EPA is proposing to partially approve and partially disapprove revisions adopted by South Dakota on August 29, 2006 to Chapter 74:36:09 of the South Dakota Administrative Rules (Prevention of Significant Deterioration of Air Quality). South Dakota submitted the request for approval of these rule revisions into the State Implementation Plan (SIP) on September 1, 2006. South Dakota was granted delegation of authority by EPA on July 6, 1994 to implement and enforce the federal Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) permitting regulations. EPA's delegation of authority to South Dakota for the PSD regulations would be rescinded if EPA issues final approval of this SIP revision, except for the one rule provision that EPA is proposing to disapprove. This action is being taken under section 110 of the Clean Air Act.
Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; State of Utah; Administrative Procedures
Document Number: E7-1620
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-02-01
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
EPA is proposing to approve a State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision submitted by the Governor of Utah on August 15, 2001. This SIP submittal deletes Utah's rules R307-102-3, ``Administrative Procedures and Hearings,'' and R307-414-3, ``Request for Review.'' EPA is proposing to remove Utah's rules R307-102-3 and R307-414-3 from Utah's federally approved SIP, because these rules are not required to be in Utah's SIP. This action is being taken under section 110 of the Clean Air Act. Furthermore, on August 25, 2006, the Governor of Utah submitted revisions to the New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) rules in Utah's Air Conservation Regulations. We are proposing to approve updates to the NSPS ``Delegation Status of New Source Performance Standards'' table to indicate the State has been delegated the authority to implement and enforce NSPS and to add entries for newly delegated NSPS. In the ``Rules and Regulations'' section of this Federal Register, EPA is approving the State's SIP revision as a direct final rule without prior proposal because the Agency views this as a noncontroversial SIP revision and anticipates no adverse comments. A detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the preamble to the direct final rule. If EPA receives no adverse comments, EPA will not take further action on this proposed rule. If EPA receives adverse comments, EPA will withdraw the direct final rule and it will not take effect. EPA will address all public comments in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action. Any parties interested in commenting must do so at this time. Please note that if EPA receives adverse comment on an amendment, paragraph, or section of this rule and if that provision may be severed from the remainder of the rule, EPA may adopt as final those provisions of the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment.

Hazardous Waste Management System; Identification and Listing of Hazardous Waste; Final Exclusion
Document Number: E7-1618
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-02-01
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
The Environmental Protection Agency (also, ``EPA'' or ``the Agency'' or ``we'') in this preamble is granting a petition submitted by General Electric (GE), King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, to exclude (or delist), on a one-time basis, certain solid wastes that have been deposited and/or accumulated in two on-site drying beds and two on-site basins at GE's RCA del Caribe facility in Barceloneta, Puerto Rico from the lists of hazardous wastes contained in the regulations. These drying beds and basins were used exclusively for disposal of its chemical etching wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) sludge. This action is specific to the RCA del Caribe site, bears no precedential effect on other delistings and conditionally excludes the petitioned waste from the list of hazardous wastes only if the waste is disposed of in a Subtitle D landfill which is permitted, licensed, or registered by a State or Commonwealth to manage industrial solid waste. The exclusion was proposed on March 19, 2004.
