Proposed Revision to the State Implementation Plan for the Greene County 8-Hour Ozone Nonattainment Area; Notice of Revised Hearing Date and Public Comment Period
[38 Pa.B. 1550]
[Saturday, March 29, 2008]
The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) is amending its proposed revision to the State Implementation Plan (SIP) published at 38 Pa.B. 1216 (March 8, 2008) to revise dates for the public comment period and public hearing for the Greene County 8-Hour Ozone Nonattainment Area.
The Department has reexamined the methodology used to predict future emissions from stationary point sources and found that the methodology used for the SIP revision for Greene County submitted January 25, 2007, to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) over-predicted future emissions of NOx from electric generating units. The Department is proposing a SIP revision that explains why the methodology was changed, what new methodology is being used for evaluation, and what the revised emission predictions are.
The Department will hold a public hearing to receive comments on the proposed SIP revision only if a request for a public hearing is received from a member of the public. A request for a public hearing must be received by 4 p.m. on Monday, April 28, 2008. If a request for a public hearing is received by 4 p.m. on Monday, April 28, 2008, the public hearing will be held on Wednesday, April 30, 2008, at 1 p.m. at the Greene County Office Building, 93 East High Street, Waynesburg, PA 15370. If no request for public hearing is received by 4 p.m. on Monday, April 28, 2008, the hearing will be cancelled, and notice of the cancellation will be published on Tuesday, April 29, 2008, at 12 p.m., on the Department's web site at www.depweb.state.pa.us (DEP Keywords: Air Plans). Interested parties may also call (717) 787-9495 to find out if the hearing has been cancelled.
Persons interested in this proposed SIP revision are invited to submit written comments on the proposed SIP revision. The proposed SIP revision is available on the Department's web site at www.depweb.state.pa.us (choose Air Plans) or through the contact persons listed. Written comments must be received by the Department no later than May 2, 2008. Written comments should be sent to the attention of Arleen Shulman, Division of Air Resource Management, Bureau of Air Quality, P. O. Box 8468, Harrisburg, PA 17105-8468, firstname.lastname@example.org. Please use ''Greene County Ozone SIP Revision'' as the mail addressee or in the subject line.

Box 8468, Harrisburg, PA 17105, (717) 787-9495, email@example.com to reserve a time.
