Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans and Designation of Areas for Air Quality Planning Purposes; Minnesota

59 FR 52496

DATE: Tuesday, October 18, 1994
ACTION: Proposed rule.

SUMMARY: The USEPA proposes to approve the Lead State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision and redesignation request submitted by the State of Minnesota for the area of Dakota County near the Gopher Smelting and Refining Company, located in Eagan, Minnesota. The submittal was in response to a designation to nonattainment, effective on January 6, 1992, and consists primarily of an administrative order and associated technical support, along with ambient monitoring data, for the Gopher facility. In the final rules section of this Federal Register, USEPA is approving the State's SIP revision and redesignation request, as a direct final rule without prior proposal because the Agency views this as a noncontroversial revision amendment 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 that direct final rule no further activity is contemplated in relation to this proposed rule. If USEPA receives adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. The USEPA will not institute a second comment period on this notice.

DATES: Comments on this proposed rule must be received on or before November 17, 1994.

ADDRESSES: Written comments should be mailed to: William L. MacDowell, Chief, Regulation Development Section, Air Enforcement Branch (AE-17J), United States Environmental Protection Agency, 77 West Jackson Boulevard, Chicago, Illinois 60604.

Copies of the State submittal and USEPA's analysis are available for public inspection during normal business hours at the following address: United States Environmental Protection Agency, Region 5, Air and Radiation Division, 77 West Jackson Boulevard (AE-17J), Chicago, Illinois 50504.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Randy Robinson, Air Enforcement Branch, Regulation Development Section (AE-17J), United States Environmental Protection Agency, Region 5, Chicago, Illinois 60604, (312) 353-6713.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: For additional information see the direct final rule published in the rules section of the Federal Register.

Dated: September 20, 1994.

Valdas V. Adamkus, Regional Administrator.
