Notice of Approval of the Primacy Application for National Primary Drinking Water Regulations for the State of Iowa
Document Number: E8-6654
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-04-01
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is hereby giving notice that the State of Iowa is revising its approved Public Water Supply Supervision Program under the Iowa Department of Natural Resources. The EPA has determined that these revisions are no less stringent than the corresponding Federal regulations. Therefore, the EPA intends to approve these program revisions.
Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; Wyoming; Revisions to New Source Review Rules
Document Number: E8-6642
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2008-04-01
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
EPA is proposing to approve the State Implementation Plan (SIP) revisions submitted by the State of Wyoming on December 13, 2006. The proposed revisions modify the State's Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) regulations to address changes to the federal NSR regulations promulgated by EPA on December 31, 2002, and reconsidered with minor changes on November 7, 2003. The State of Wyoming has a federally-approved PSD program for new and modified sources impacting attainment areas in the State. Wyoming does not have a Nonattainment New Source Review (NNSR) program. This action is being taken under section 110 of the Clean Air Act.
National Perchloroethylene Air Emission Standards for Dry Cleaning Facilities
Document Number: E8-6548
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2008-04-01
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
EPA is proposing to amend the national perchloroethylene air emission standards for dry cleaning facilities promulgated on July 27, 2006 (71 FR 42724), under the authority of section 112 of the Clean Air Act. These amendments to the national perchloroethylene air emission standards for dry cleaning facilities would correct applicability cross references that were not correctly amended between the most recent proposed and final rule revisions, and would clarify that condenser performance monitoring may be done by either of two prescribed methods (pressure or temperature), regardless of whether an installed pressure gauge is present. Without these amendments, new area sources could erroneously be required to perform monitoring that was proposed for only major sources, and installed condenser performance gauge readings could be required of sources when a prescribed temperature method is just as valid for compliance purposes. In the ``Rules and Regulations'' section of this Federal Register, we are issuing these corrections as a direct final rule with this parallel proposed rule. If we receive no adverse comment, we will not take further action on this proposed rule.
National Perchloroethylene Air Emission Standards for Dry Cleaning Facilities
Document Number: E8-6544
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-04-01
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
EPA is taking direct final action on amendments to the national perchloroethylene air emission standards for dry cleaning facilities promulgated on July 27, 2006, under the authority of section 112 of the Clean Air Act. This action amends rule language to correct applicability cross references that were not correctly amended between the most recent proposed and final rule revisions, and to clarify that condenser performance monitoring may be done by either of two prescribed methods (pressure or temperature), regardless of whether an installed pressure gauge is present. Without these amendments, new area sources could erroneously be required to perform monitoring that was proposed for only major sources, and installed condenser performance gauge readings could be required of sources when a prescribed temperature method is just as valid for compliance purposes.
