Infrastructure State Implementation Plan for Demonstration that Maine Complies with the Good Neighbor Requirements of Clean Air Act Section 110(a)(2)(D)(i)(I) for the 2008 Ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standard
08/28/2015 03:00 PM EDT

The State Implementation Plans (SIPs) are the federally-enforceable plans that identify how the states will attain and/or maintain the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). The Department is proposing to amend the Maine SIP by amending the Ozone Infrastructure Plan which certifies to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that Maine’s SIP fulfills the infrastructure requirements established in sections 110(a)(1) and (2) of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments (CAA) for ozone. The CAA requires states to address thirteen basic SIP requirements, including demonstrating that their emissions do not interfere with attainment and maintenance of the NAAQS at downwind locations. This element is addressed in this revision of the plan. This plan will be submitted to EPA as a revision to Maine’s State Implementation Plan. Copies of this proposal are available upon request by contacting the Agency contact person or on the DEP website at www.maine.gov/dep/rules/. Pursuant to Maine law, interested parties are publicly notified of the proposed rulemaking and are provided an opportunity for comment. Written comments may be submitted by mail, e-mail or fax to the contact person before the end of the comment period. To ensure the comments are considered, they must include your name and the organization you represent, if any.

Comments must be received before close of business Friday September 28th, 2015. Submit comments to:
