Revisions to the California State Implementation Plan, San 
Joaquin Valley Unified Air Pollution Control District

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.


SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to approve revisions to the San Joaquin 
Valley Unified Air Pollution Control District (SJVUAPCD) portion of the 
California State Implementation Plan (SIP). These revisions concern 
Oxides of Nitrogen (NOX) emissions from Boilers, Steam 
Generators and Process Heaters (2.0 MMBtu/hr to 5.0 MMBtu/hr, and 0.075 
MMBtu/hr to 2.0 MMBtu/hr); Dryers, Dehydrators, and Ovens; Natural Gas-
Fired, Fan-Type Residential Central Furnaces; and Solid Fuel Fired 
Boilers, Steam Generators and Process Heaters. We are proposing to 
approve local rules to regulate these emission sources under the Clean 
Air Act as amended in 1990 (CAA or the Act).

DATES: Any comments on this proposal must arrive by June 29, 2007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This proposal addresses the following local 
rules: SJVUAPCD Rules 4307, 4308, 4309, 4352, and 4905. In the Rules 
and Regulations section of this Federal Register, we are approving 
these local rules in a direct final action without prior proposal 
because we believe these SIP revisions are not controversial. If we 
receive adverse comments, however, we will publish a timely withdrawal 
of the direct final rule and address the comments in subsequent action 
based on this proposed rule. Please note that if we receive adverse 
comment on an amendment, paragraph, or section of this rule and if that 
provision may be severed from the remainder of the rule, we may adopt 
as final those provisions of the rule that are not the subject of an 
adverse comment.
    We do not plan to open a second comment period, so anyone 
interested in commenting should do so at this time. If we do not 
receive adverse comments, no further activity is planned. For further 
information, please see the direct final action.

    Dated: April 30, 2007.
Laura Yoshii,
Acting Regional Administrator, Region IX.
