WV Division of Air Quality Public Hearing on 2016 Proposed Legislative Rules

On June 18, 2015, the West Virginia Division of Air Quality announced a public hearing to take comment on the 2016 proposed legislative rules. The public hearing will take place at the WV DEP headquarters in Charleston on Monday July 6, 2015 at 6 p.m.   The public comment period will end at the conclusion of the public hearing.

The WV DAQ proposes changes to the following rules

45CSR16 – Standards of Performance for New Stationary Sources

45CSR18 – Control of Air Pollution from Combustion of Solid Waste

45CSR25 – Control of Air Pollution from Hazardous Waste Treatment, Storage and Disposal Facilities

45CSR34 – Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants

45CSR39 – Control of Annual Nitrogen Oxides Emissions

45CSR40 – Control of Ozone Season Nitrogen Oxides Emissions

45CSR41 – Control of Annual Sulfur Dioxide Emissions

The WV DAQ proposes to repeal 45CSR39 and 45CSR41 since they have been replaced by the federal Cross State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR).

Comments on the rules package are limited to the proposed changes only. Written comments can be submitted to dep.comments@wv.gov. Copies of the proposed rules are available at http://www.dep.wv.gov/pio/Pages/Rules.aspx.
