40 CFR Part 62

[EPA-R03-OAR-2016-0081; FRL-9961-22-Region 3]

Approval and Promulgation of State Air Quality Plans for 
Designated Facilities and Pollutants; State of Delaware, District of 
Columbia, and Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, City of Philadelphia; 
Control of Emissions From Existing Commercial and Industrial Solid 
Waste Incinerator Units

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.


SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to 
notify the public that it has received negative declarations for 
commercial and industrial solid waste incineration (CISWI) units within 
the State of Delaware, the District of Columbia, and the City of 
Philadelphia in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. These negative 
declarations certify that CISWI units subject to the requirements of 
sections 111(d) and 129 of the Clean Air Act (CAA) do not exist within 
the jurisdictional boundaries of the State of Delaware, the District of 
Columbia, and the City of Philadelphia in the Commonwealth of 
Pennsylvania. EPA is accepting the negative declarations in accordance 
with the requirements of the CAA. In the Final Rules section of this 
Federal Register, EPA is accepting the negative declarations as a 
direct final rule without prior proposal because the Agency views this 
as a noncontroversial submittal and anticipates no adverse comments. If 
no adverse comments are received in response to this action, no further 
activity is contemplated. If EPA 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final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be 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. EPA 
will not institute a second comment period. Any parties interested in 
commenting on this action should do so at this time.

DATES: Comments must be received in writing by May 31, 2017.

ADDRESSES: Submit your comments, identified by Docket ID No. EPA-R03-
OAR-2016-0081 at https://www.regulations.gov, or via email to 
[email protected]. For comments submitted at Regulations.gov, follow 
the online instructions for submitting comments. Once submitted, 
comments cannot be edited or removed from Regulations.gov. For either 
manner of submission, the EPA may publish any comment received to its 
public docket. Do not submit electronically any information you 
consider to be confidential business information (CBI) or other 
information whose disclosure is restricted by statute. Multimedia 
submissions (audio, video, etc.) must be accompanied by a written 
comment. The written comment is considered the official comment and 
should include discussion of all points you wish to make. EPA will 
generally not consider comments or comment contents located outside of 
the primary submission (i.e. on the web, cloud, or other file sharing 
system). For additional submission methods, please contact the person 
identified in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section. For the full 
EPA public comment policy, information about CBI or multimedia 
submissions, and general guidance on making effective comments, please
