Petition No. p2011-01

LCB File No. R015-11

Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) NRS 445B.210

Description of Petition: The Nevada Division of Environmental Protection (NDEP) is proposing to update the agency's adoption of the federal "prevention of significant deterioration of air quality" (PSD) rule to include US EPA's greenhouse gas (GHG) permitting requirements. This proposed permanent regulation was adopted as a temporary regulation by the SEC on the June 16, 2011. Without this adoption, US EPA would be the primary PSD permitting authority for sources in Nevada. The NDEP is also proposing to update NAC 445B.221, "Adoption by reference and applicability of certain provisions of federal law and regulations," in this regulation. With the exception of National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for area sources, which are being proposed for adoption in R014-11 (noted above), this regulation proposes to adopt applicable sections of the federal New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) and NESHAP rules that have been issued by the US EPA since July 1, 2009. Adoption of this permanent regulation would allow the regulated industry to continue to work with the State rather than US EPA to comply with the new rules
