Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Notice of data availability (NODA).
EPA is administering—under the Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR) Federal Implementation Plans (FIPs)—the CAIR NOX Annual Trading Program Compliance Supplement Pool (CAIR CSP) for the States of Delaware, Louisiana, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. The CAIR FIPs require the Administrator to determine by order the CAIR CSP allowance allocations for units in these States whose owners and operators requested and qualify for these allocations and to provide the public with the opportunity to object to the determinations of allocations and denials of allocations. On August 6, 2009, EPA issued a NODA setting forth such determinations in the Federal Register and provided an opportunity for submission of objections. Through the NODA issued today, EPA is making available to the public the Agency's determinations, after considering all objections, of CAIR CSP allowance allocations and denials of such allocations under the FIPs, as well as the data upon which the allocations and denials of allocations were based.
Under § 97.143(d)(5), EPA must record, by January 1, 2010, the CSP allowance allocations, consistent with this NODA, in the compliance accounts of units whose owners and operators successfully applied for a CSP allowance allocation under the CAIR FIPs.

For more background and information regarding the purpose of the NODA, requirements for requesting and receiving CAIR CSP allowances under the CAIR FIPs, procedures for allocating such allowances, the application by EPA of requirements to individual CSP allocation requests, and the interpretation the data upon which CSP allocations and denial of allocations were based, see the August 6, 2009 NODA (74 FR 39315, Aug. 6, 2009).
EPA received one objection to the determinations and data in the August 6, 2009 NODA.

For the reasons set forth in the August 6, 2009 NODA, the NODA, and the response to the objection, EPA adopts the CSP allocations set forth in the August 6, 2009 NODA.
EPA is not requesting objections to the data provided in this final NODA. This action constitutes a final action for determining the CAIR CSP allowance allocations under § 97.143 and the CAIR FIPs.Start Signature
