Petition No. P2009-02

LCB File No. R088-09

Nevada Administrative Code: NAC 445B.221 -- Authority is 1, NRS 445B.210.

Description of Petition: The Nevada Division of Environmental Protection (NDEP) is proposing to convert the temporary regulation, T036-09, which was adopted at the SEC's June Hearing, to a permanent regulation and to adopt specific ASTM International test methods by reference. NDEP regularly adopts by reference appropriate new and revised federal New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) and National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) promulgated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). NDEP then requests delegation of the NSPS and NESHAP programs to Nevada; however, it is necessary for the state to first adopt the federal rule so that EPA can delegate the implementation.

These proposed amendments update NAC 445B.221 with applicable new and revised federal NSPS and NESHAP rules that became effective after March 2008. This update will allow the regulated industry to continue to work with the state as opposed to the EPA. Additionally, adopting the test methods will allow the NDEP to use methods approved by EPA and recognized by the scientific community to measure emissions from sources.
