Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; Indiana Source-Specific Revisions
EPA is proposing to approve revisions to limitations for two facilities in Lake County, Indiana. These limitations concern particulate matter from Lever Brothers facility and both particulate matter and sulfur dioxide from NIPSCo's Dean Mitchell Station. Indiana requested these revisions on February 3, 1999, and December 28, 1999, respectively.
In separate action in today's Federal Register, EPA is approving the submittals as a direct final rule without prior proposal, because the EPA views this as a noncontroversial action and anticipates no adverse comments. A detailed rationale for this action is set forth in the direct final rule.
If EPA receives no adverse written comments in response to these actions, we contemplate no further activity in relation to this proposed rule. If we receive adverse written comments, we will withdraw the direct final rule and will address all public comments in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. Any parties interested in commenting on this action should do so at this time.
EPA must receive comments by September 28, 2000.
