Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; Texas; Stage II Vapor Recovery Program and Control of Air Pollution From Volatile Organic Compounds
Document Number: 2014-05100
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-03-17
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is approving revisions to the Texas State Implementation Plan (SIP) that control emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) at gasoline dispensing facilities (GDFs) in Texas. The revisions were submitted to the EPA by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) on October 31, 2013 and address the maintenance and removal of Stage II vapor recovery equipment at GDFs. The EPA is also approving related revisions to the Stage II SIP narrative that pertain to the maintenance and removal of Stage II vapor recovery equipment and demonstrate that the absence of Stage II equipment in the Beaumont-Port Arthur (BPA), Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) and Houston-Galveston Brazoria (HGB) areas, and in El Paso County would not interfere with attainment of the national ambient air quality standards, reasonable further progress or any other requirement of the Clean Air Act (CAA or Act). The EPA is approving these revisions pursuant to sections 110 and 202 of the Act and consistent with the EPA's guidance.
