Air Plan Approval; Missouri; Control of Emissions From Industrial Surface Coating Operations
Document Number: 2020-14444
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-07-10
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to approve revisions to the Missouri State Implementation Plan (SIP) received on March 7, 2019. The submission revises Missouri's regulation that restricts the emissions of volatile organic compounds from industrial surface coating operations in St. Louis City and Jefferson, St. Charles, Franklin, and St. Louis Counties. Specifically, the revisions to the rule adds a new surface coating category for the decorative coating of foam products, establishes an appropriate emission limit for this type of surface coating operation, removes obsolete provisions that were applicable prior to March 1, 2012, removes a reference to a rule that is being rescinded, removes the unnecessary use of restrictive words, adds definitions specific to this rule, changes rule language to be consistent with defined terms, and updates incorporations by reference. The new emission limit for decorative coating of foam products is a SIP strengthening and will not adversely impact the air quality in the St. Louis area. The remaining revisions are administrative in nature and do not impact the stringency of the SIP or air quality. Approval of these revisions will ensure consistency between state and federally- approved rules.

Finding of Failure To Attain the 2006 24-Hour Fine Particulate Matter Standards; California; Los Angeles-South Coast Air Basin
Document Number: 2020-14299
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-07-10
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to determine that the Los Angeles-South Coast Air Basin nonattainment area failed to attain the 2006 24-hour fine particulate matter (``PM2.5'') national ambient air quality standards by the December 31, 2019 ``Serious'' area attainment date. This proposed determination is based on ambient air quality monitoring data from 2017 through 2019. If the EPA finalizes this determination as proposed, the State of California will be required to submit a revision to the California State Implementation Plan that, among other elements, provides for expeditious attainment within the time limits prescribed by regulation and provides for a five percent annual reduction in the emissions of direct PM2.5 or a PM2.5 plan precursor pollutant. We are also proposing to correct an error in the table of California area designations for the 2006 PM2.5 national ambient air quality standards.
