Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed to approve revisions to the State Implementation Plan (SIP) for the state of Iowa. The purpose of these revisions is to update the Polk County Board of Health Rules and Regulations. These proposed revisions reflect updates to the Iowa statewide rules previously approved by EPA and are intended to assure consistency between the applicable local agency rules and Federally-approved rules. Comments on this proposed action must be received in writing by September 26, 2013.
EPA is approving the Iowa SIP revision as a direct final rule without prior proposal because it views this as a noncontroversial revision amendment and anticipates no relevant adverse comments to the action.
