ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

40 CFR Part 52

[EPA-R05-OAR-2014-0206; FRL-9908-94-Region 5]


Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; Wisconsin; 
Nitrogen Oxide Combustion Turbine Alternative Control Requirements for 
the Milwaukee-Racine Area

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: On February 24, 2014, the Wisconsin Department of Natural 
Resources (WDNR) submitted revisions to its nitrogen oxide 
(NOX) combustion turbine rule for the Milwaukee-Racine area. 
This revision is contained in ``2013 Wisconsin Act 91--Senate Bill 
371'' which allows alternative NOX emission requirements for 
simple cycle combustion turbines that undergo a modification on or 
after February 1, 2001, if dry low NOX combustion is not 
technically or economically feasible. This revision is approvable 
because it provides for alternative NOX requirements subject 
to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approval on a case-by-case 
basis and therefore satisfies the reasonably available control 
technology (RACT) requirements of the Clean Air Act.

DATES: Comments must be received on or before May 30, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the Final Rules section of this Federal 
Register, EPA is approving the State's SIP submittal as a direct final 
rule without prior proposal because the Agency views this as a 
noncontroversial submittal and anticipates no adverse comments. A 
detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the direct final 
rule. If no adverse comments are received in response to this rule, no 
further activity is contemplated. If EPA receives adverse comments, the 
direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received 
will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed 
rule. EPA will not institute a second comment period. Any parties 
interested in commenting on this action should do so at this time. 
Please note that if EPA receives adverse comment on an amendment, 
paragraph, or section of this rule and if that provision may be severed 
from the remainder of the rule, EPA may adopt as final those provisions 
of the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment. For 
additional information, see the direct final rule that is located in 
the Rules section of this Federal Register.

    Dated: March 20, 2014.

Regional Administrator, Region 5.
