Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Proposed rule.


EPA proposes to approve the Section 111(d)/129 Plan for the State of South Carolina submitted by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) on September 19, 2000, for implementing and enforcing the Emissions Guidelines applicable to existing Hospital/Medical/Infectious Waste Incinerators. The Plan was submitted by the South Carolina DHEC to satisfy certain Federal Clean Air Act requirements. In the Final Rules Section of this Federal Register, EPA is approving the South Carolina State Plan submittal as a direct final rule without prior proposal because the Agency views this as a noncontroversial submittal and anticipates that it will not receive any significant, material, and adverse comments. A detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the direct final rule and incorporated by reference herein. If no significant, material, and adverse comments are received in response to this proposed rule, no further activity is contemplated in relation to this proposed rule. If EPA receives adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action.


Comments on this proposed rule must be received in writing by June 6, 2001.


Written comments should be addressed to Gregory Crawford at the EPA Regional Office listed below. Copies of the documents relevant to this proposed rule are available for public inspection during normal business hours at the following locations.
