EPA Responses to Citizen Comments on State Program Deficiencies

This page contains links to EPA letters and Notices of Deficiency responding to citizens' comments on alleged deficiencies in State and local air operating permits (part 70 ) programs. The citizen comments were submitted to EPA as a result of a 90-day comment period EPA provided for members of the public to identify deficiencies they perceive exist in State and local agency operating permits programs required by title V of the Clean Air Act (Act). (See 65 FR 77376). The 90-day comment period was from December 11, 2000, until March 12, 2001.

Where EPA disagrees as to the existence of a deficiency, we are responding with EPA letters, where we agree that a deficiency exists, we are issuing a Notice of Deficiency in the Federal Register. EPA is responding to these comments in two phases. Phase one involves State and local programs granted interim approval as of December 11, 2000. These EPA responses will be available starting December 1, 2001. Phase two involves those programs granted full approval as of December 11, 2000. EPA response to alleged deficiencies in those programs will be available starting April 1, 2002. Note that there were no comments received for programs in Region 1and only one comment in Region 8, which was complimentary, thus, no response is warranted for programs in either Region.
