Revisions to the California State Implementation Plan, Monterey 
Bay Unified Air Pollution Control District, Placer County Air Pollution 
Control District

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.


SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to approve revisions to the Monterey Bay 
Unified Air Pollution Control District (MBUAPCD) and Placer County Air 
Pollution Control District (PCAPCD) portions of the California State 
Implementation Plan (SIP). These revisions concern volatile organic 
compound (VOC) emissions from storage tanks and the operation of steam 
drive crude oil production wells. 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 July 13, 2009.

ADDRESSES: Submit comments, identified by docket number EPA-R09-OAR-
2009-0230, by one of the following methods:
    1. Federal eRulemaking Portal: www.regulations.gov. Follow the on-
line instructions.
    2. E-mail: [email protected].
    3. Mail or deliver: Andrew Steckel (Air-4), U.S. Environmental 
Protection Agency Region IX, 75 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, CA 
    Instructions: All comments will be included in the public docket 
without change and may be made available online at http://www.regulations.gov, including any personal information provided, 
unless the comment includes Confidential Business Information (CBI) or 
other information whose disclosure is restricted by statute. 
Information that you consider CBI or otherwise protected should be 
clearly identified as such and should not be submitted through  http://www.regulations.gov or e-mail. http://www.regulations.gov is an 
``anonymous access'' system, and EPA will not know your identity or 
contact information unless you provide it in the body of your comment. 
If you send e-mail directly to EPA, your e-mail address will be 
automatically captured and included as part of the public comment. If 
EPA cannot read your comment due to technical difficulties and cannot 
contact you for clarification, EPA may not be able to consider your 
comment. Electronic files should avoid the use of special characters, 
any form of encryption, and be free of any defects or viruses.
    Docket: The index to the docket for this action is available 
electronically at http://www.regulations.gov and in hard copy at EPA 
Region IX, 75 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, California. While all 
documents in the docket are listed in the index, some information may 
be publicly available only at the hard copy location (e.g., copyrighted 
material), and some may not be publicly available in either location 
(e.g., CBI). To inspect the hard copy materials, please schedule an 
appointment during normal business hours with the contact listed in the 

4126, [email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This proposal addresses the following local 
rules: MBUAPQD 427 and PCAPQD 212. 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 3, 2009.
Laura Yoshii,
Acting Regional Administrator, Region IX.
