Nevada Administrative Code: NAC 445B
Description of Petition: The Nevada Division of Environmental Protection (NDEP) is proposing to amend one section in the air permitting provisions of NAC 445B, which deals with Class II permit applications. This proposed permanent regulation was adopted by the SEC as a temporary regulation on December 7, 2010. It addresses public noticing requirements and the timeline for agency action on applications.
Specifically, the regulation streamlines the public notice timeline for Class II applications by requiring the Director to act on all Class II permit applications within 60 days after the official date of submittal. It further requires all new Class II air permit applications and all applications for a modification (to an existing Class II source) that exceeds a certain threshold be made available for public notice. These regulatory changes respond to US EPA comments on the approvability of the NDEP's public notice provisions into Nevada's applicable State Implementation Plan. The proposed permanent amendments are necessary to align state regulations with the federal Clean Air Act and US EPA rule requirements. .
