OMA Files Comments on Fed NOx Rule

Last week the OMA submitted supportive comments to the U.S. EPA on the proposed update to the NOx state implementation plan (SIP) Call regulation.

This proposed rule would amend the existing NOx SIP Call regulations to allow states to revise their SIPs to replace the current requirements for certain sources to monitor emissions with alternate monitoring requirements. The proposal would also eliminate obsolete provisions and make non-substantive clarifications to the remaining regulations.

In its comments OMA wrote, “The proposal would allow alternative monitoring to costly Part 75 CEMS while still providing the necessary assurance that covered units are achieving the required emission reductions under the NOx SIP Call.”

Ohio EPA also submitted comments supporting the proposed federal rule. 10/29/2018
