Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Notice of permit modification adopting Alternative Emission Limitation.


Under Title IV of the Clean Air Act, EPA established the Acid Rain NOX Emission Reduction Program to reduce the adverse effects of acidic deposition. EPA adopted nitrogen oxides ( NOX) emission limits and issued permits to affected sources. EPA is issuing Acid Rain permit modifications for two units at a source. Each permit modification adds a new NOX emission limitation, i.e., Alternative Emission Limitation for Start Printed Page 1125 NOX emissions to the permit for the source. The Alternative Emission Limitations are less stringent than the standard limit for this type of unit but are the minimum rate that the units can achieve during long-term dispatch operation with low NOX burners.
