Regional Haze SIP for Second Planning Period
The Nevada Division of Environmental Protection (NDEP) Bureau of Air Quality Planning (BAQP) welcomes comments on the proposed Nevada Regional Haze State Implementation Plan for the Second Planning Period. On January 10, 2017, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalized changes to the Regional Haze Rule, which requires each state to submit periodic state implementation plan (SIP) revisions addressing regional haze visibility impairment. The SIP is submitted to address certain requirements of 40 CFR Part 51 Section 308 and demonstrates that the State of Nevada has met the requirements of the regional haze program for the second planning period. The NDEP is requesting the EPA approve the proposed plan as a revision to the Nevada SIP.
In addition, the NDEP is withdrawing certain elements of the 2012 PM2.5 and 2015 Ozone Infrastructure SIPs addressing CAA Section 110(a)(2)(D)(i)(II) for interstate visibility transport, and submitting in their place updated elements, as indicated in Appendix I of the proposed Nevada Regional Haze State Implementation Plan for the Second Planning Period. The NDEP is requesting the EPA approve the withdrawal and replacement of these elements.
Public comment period is from June 23, 2022 to July 25, 2022.
Public Hearing scheduled for July 28, 2022, if requested.
