Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION:

Proposed rule.

SUMMARY:

EPA is proposing to approve revisions to particulate matter (PM) emissions regulations for Dubois County, Indiana, which the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) submitted to EPA on February 3, 1999, as amendments to its State Implementation Plan (SIP). The revisions include relaxation of some PM limits, elimination of limits for boilers which are no longer operating, updating facility names, and changing some boiler fuel types. Air quality dispersion modeling provided by IDEM shows that this SIP revision will not have an adverse effect on PM air quality.

DATES:

EPA must receive written comments on this proposed rule by May 22, 2000.

ADDRESSES:

You should mail written comments to: J. Elmer Bortzer, Chief, Regulation Development Section, Air Programs Branch (AR-18J), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region 5, 77 West Jackson Boulevard, Chicago, Illinois 60604.

You may inspect copies of the State submittal and EPA's analysis of it at: Regulation Development Section, Air Programs Branch (AR-18J), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region 5, 77 West Jackson Boulevard, Chicago, Illinois 60604.
