Document Number: 2016-24657
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-10-20
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is disapproving a State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision submitted by the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) for the State of Delaware on October 15, 2013. EPA is disapproving this action because the submittal does not satisfy the requirements of the Clean Air Act (CAA) or the federal implementing regulations, which establish the criteria under which the owner or operator of a new or modified major stationary source must obtain the required emission offsets from the same source or other sources in the same nonattainment area with limited exceptions under Delaware's nonattainment new source review (NSR) preconstruction permitting program. In addition, EPA is finalizing disapproval of the SIP revision because Delaware exercises authorities that are reserved for EPA under section 107 of the CAA. EPA is disapproving this revision to DNREC's SIP in accordance with the requirements of the CAA.
