Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Proposed rule.


EPA is proposing to approve a revision to the Lake County Air Quality Management District (LCAQMD) portion of the California State Implementation Plan (SIP). This revision concerns particulate matter (PM-10) emissions from open fires and prescribed burning. We are proposing to approve local rules that regulate this emission source under the Clean Air Act as amended in 1990 (CAA or the Act).


Any comments on this proposal must arrive by July 15, 2002.

This proposal addresses the approval of the local LCAQMD Sections [Rules] 203, 204.5, 208.3, 208.8, 226.4, 226.5, 240.8, 246, 248.3, 248.5, 249.5, 251.7, 270, 431, 431.5, 433, 434, 1000, 1001, 1003, 1105, 1107, 1130, 1140, 1145, 1150, 1160, and 1170. In the Rules section of this Federal Register, we are approving these local rules in a direct final action without prior proposal because we believe this SIP revision is 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 should 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.
