Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; South Carolina: Prevention of Significant Deterioration and Nonattainment New Source Review
Document Number: 2011-6975
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-03-24
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
EPA is proposing to convert a conditional approval of a revision to the South Carolina State Implementation Plan (SIP) to a full approval. South Carolina, through the South Carolina Department of Health and Environment Control (SC DHEC), Bureau of Air Quality, submitted a SIP revision on April 14, 2009, in response to the conditional approval of its New Source Review (NSR) permitting program. South Carolina's April 14, 2009, SIP revision consists of adopting requirements of the Nonattainment New Source Review (NNSR) construction permit program under the Clean Air Act (CAA or Act). This program affects major stationary sources in South Carolina that are subject to or potentially subject to the NNSR construction permit program. As required by the conditional approval, South Carolina's April 14, 2009, SIP revision includes requirements for calculating emissions reductions that will be used for offsets and ensures those reductions are surplus to other Federal requirements. EPA is proposing approval of the April 14, 2009, SIP revision because the Agency has determined that South Carolina addresses the conditions identified in the conditional approval, and is in accordance with the CAA.
Hazardous Waste Management System Identification and Listing of Hazardous Waste; Final Exclusion
Document Number: 2011-6892
Type: Rule
Date: 2011-03-24
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA, also the Agency or we in this preamble) today is granting a petition submitted by Babcock & Wilcox Nuclear Operations Group, Inc., the current owner, and to BWX Technologies, Inc., as predecessor in interest to the current owner, identified collectively hereafter in this preamble as ``B&W NOG,'' to exclude (or delist) on a one-time basis from the lists of hazardous waste, a certain solid waste generated at its Mt. Athos facility near Lynchburg, Virginia. After careful analysis, we have concluded that the petitioned waste is not hazardous waste. This exclusion applies to 148 cubic yards of sludge currently deposited in two on-site surface impoundments designated as Final Effluent Ponds (FEPs) 1 and 2. Accordingly, this final rule conditionally excludes this volume of the petitioned waste from the requirements of the hazardous waste regulation under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA).
