ENVIRONMENTAL APPEALS BOARD (EAB) APPEAL:
An appeal to the Administrator Start Printed Page 11549was sent by Mrs. Lory Rimoldi to the EAB for review of this permit. On January 14, 2003 the EAB dismissed Mrs. Rimolldi's petition for review. The EAB denied the petition for review because (1) Mrs. Rimoldi failed to indicate why Region IX's response to her concerns was erroneous or otherwise warranted review, (2) the speculative concerns regarding the general enforcement of a validly issued permit raised in her petition are outside the scope of the Board's review authority, and (3) the petition did not contain sufficient specificity as to why Region IX's decision was erroneous. The final extension became effective on January 14, 2003 and will expire 18 months from that date on July 13, 2004.
The issuance of a PSD/NSR permit is reviewable under Section 307(b)(1) of the Clean Air Act and 40 CFR 124.19(f)(1) in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. A petition for review must be filed by May 12, 2003.Start Signature
