EPA Rulemaking To Address State Requirements For Startup, Shutdown, or Malfunction

Friday, February 22nd, 2013

The EPA is proposing to take action on a petition for rulemaking filed by the Sierra Club in 2011 concerning the treatment of excess emissions in state rules by sources during periods of startup, shutdown, or malfunction (SSM). EPA is proposing to grant in part and to deny in part the request to rescind its policy interpreting the Clean Air Act (CAA) to allow states to have appropriately drawn state implementation plan (SIP) provisions that provide affirmative defenses to monetary penalties for violations during periods of SSM. The EPA is also proposing either to grant or to deny the Petition regarding existing SIP provisions related to SSM in each of 39 states identified in the petition.

For each of those states where EPA proposes to grant the petition concerning specific provisions, EPA also is proposing to find that the existing SIP provision is substantially inadequate to meet CAA requirements and proposes a “SIP call.” For those affected states EPA will require the states to submit a corrective SIP revision. Comments on the proposed actions must be received on or before March 25, 2013.

Through this rulemaking, EPA intends to clarify its interpretation of the CAA regarding excess emissions during SSM events. EPA may find specific SIP provisions to be substantially inadequate to meet CAA requirements; if a state’s existing SIP provision allows an automatic exemption for excess emissions during periods of startup, shutdown, or malfunction, then the EPA may determine that the SIP provision is substantially inadequate because the provision is inconsistent with requirements of the CAA.
The affected States include:

Alabama
Alaska
Arizona
Arkansas
Colorado
Delaware
District of Columbia
Florida
Georgia
Idaho
Illinois
Indiana
Iowa
Kansas
Kentucky
Louisiana
Maine
Michigan
Minnesota
Mississippi
Missouri
Montana
Nebraska
New Hampshire
New Jersey

Louisiana SWPPP Template and Storm Water General Permit Compliance Plan

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

The Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has finalized a revised General Permit for Storm Water Discharges Associated with Industrial Activity (Multi-Sector General Permit, or MSGP). This permit replaced the previous Louisiana general permit, which had expired. The Louisiana general permit is modeled after the US EPA MSGP and defines sector specific requirements for each of 29 different industrial sectors. For most facilities subject to the existing general permit, the revised MSGP will require a significant revision to the facility stormwater pollution prevention plan, or SWPPP.

To reduce the level of effort required for facilities to come into compliance with new permit requirements, Caltha LLP has prepared a SWPPP template based on Louisiana permit requirements, including Louisiana specific quarterly inspection checklist, quarterly visual assessment checklist, quarterly benchmark monitoring checklist, and an annual comprehensive site inspection checklist. Caltha has also prepared a Louisiana Stormwater Permit Compliance Plan to assist permitted facilities in organizing and planning new compliance requirements under the LDEQ general permit.
