RULES

Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; Wisconsin;
Disapproval of PM2.5 [FR DOC# 2013-17837] SUMMARY: EPA is taking final
action to disapprove a revision to Wisconsin’s State Implementation Plan
(SIP) submitted by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) on
May 12, 2011. The revision concerns permitting requirements relating to
particulate matter of less than 2.5 micrometers (PM<INF>2.5</INF>). EPA is
taking final action to disapprove the revisions because they do not meet the
2008 PM<INF>2.5</INF> SIP requirements. The proposed rulemaking was
published December 18, 2012. During the comment period which ended on
January 17, 2013, no comments were received.

Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; West
Virginia; Update to Materials Incorporated by Reference [FR DOC# 2013-17836]
SUMMARY: EPA is updating the materials that are incorporated by reference
(IBR) into the West Virginia State Implementation Plan (SIP). The
regulations affected by this update have been previously submitted by the
West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (WV DEP) and approved
by EPA. This update affects the SIP materials that are available for public
inspection at the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), the
Air and Radiation Docket and Information Center located at EPA Headquarters
in Washington, DC, and the EPA Regional Office.

Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; Tennessee: New Source
Review-Prevention of Significant Deterioration [FR DOC# 2013-17842] SUMMARY:
EPA is taking final action to approve portions of a revision to the
Tennessee State Implementation Plan (SIP), submitted by the Tennessee
Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) through the Division of
Air Pollution Control, to EPA on October 4, 2012, for parallel processing.
TDEC submitted the final version of this SIP revision on May 10, 2013. The
SIP revision approved in this action modifies Tennessee’s New Source Review
(NSR) Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) program to adopt, into
the Tennessee SIP, federal regulatory requirements regarding PSD increments
for fine particles with an aerodynamic diameter of less than or equal to 2.5
micrometers. EPA is approving portions of Tennessee’s May 10, 2013, SIP
revision because the Agency has made the determination that these portions
of the SIP revision are in accordance with the Clean Air Act (CAA or Act)
and EPA regulations regarding NSR permitting.

Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; North Carolina; Control
Techniques Guidelines and Reasonably Available Control Technology [FR DOC#
2013-17833] SUMMARY: On May 1, 2013, the State of North Carolina, through
the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (NC
DENR), submitted to EPA a state implementation plan (SIP) revision to
satisfy North Carolina’s commitment associated with the conditional approval
of its reasonably available control technology (RACT) requirements for
volatile organic compound (VOC) sources located in the North Carolina
portion of the Charlotte–Gastonia–Rock Hill, North Carolina–South
Carolina 1997 8-hour ozone nonattainment area (hereafter referred to as the
“bi-state Charlotte Area”). The NC DENR May 1, 2013, SIP revision also
includes additional changes to North Carolina’s RACT rules. EPA is taking
final action to approve a number of these SIP changes to the State’s RACT
rules and to convert the existing conditional approval of VOC RACT
provisions in the North Carolina SIP to a full approval under the Clean Air
Act (CAA or Act). EPA has evaluated the changes to North Carolina’s SIP, and
has made the determination that those being approved through this action are
consistent with statutory and regulatory requirements and EPA guidance.
