Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
EPA is proposing to approve revisions to the El Dorado County Air Pollution Control District (EDCAPCD) and Imperial County Air Pollution Control District (ICAPCD) portions of the California State Implementation Plan (SIP). These revisions concern Oxides of Nitrogen (NOX) emissions from industrial, institutional, and commercial boilers, steam generators, and process heaters as well as administrative matters. We are proposing to approve local rules and proposing to approve the recision of local rules that regulate emission sources under the Clean Air Act as amended in 1990 (CAA or the Act).
Any comments on this proposal must arrive by November 9, 2001.
Mail comments to Andy Steckel, Rulemaking Office Chief (AIR-4), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region IX, 75 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, CA 94105.

This proposal addresses the approval of the local EDCAPCD Rules 101 and 229, the recision of local EDCAPCD Rules 101 and 102, and the approval of local ICAPCD Rules 100 and 113. In the Rules and Regulations section of this Federal Register, we are approving and rescinding these local rules in a direct final action without prior proposal because we believe these SIP revisions are not controversial. If we receive adverse comments, however, we will publish a timely withdrawal of the direct final rule and address the comments in subsequent action based on this proposed rule. We do not plan to open a second comment period, so anyone interested in commenting Start Printed Page 51620should do so at this time. If we do not receive adverse comments, no further activity is planned. For further information, please see the direct final action.Start Signature
