(11/02/06) EPA will hold a public hearing Monday, Nov. 6, 2006 on proposed changes to simplify the process owners and operators of existing facilities must follow when determining whether plans to modify their facility would trigger New Source Review requirements. EPA proposed the changes, known as "aggregation and debottlenecking," on Sept. 8, 2006.

The hearing will be at EPA's offices in Research Triangle Park, N.C., at 109 T.W. Alexander Drive. The hearing will be in Building C, Classroom C112. Because this is a federal facility, speakers should be prepared to show photo ID to enter the EPA campus and buildings.

The public hearing will begin at 9 a.m. and continue until one hour after the last registered speaker has spoken. Speakers must pre-register by 5 p.m. on Nov. 3, 2006. To pre-register, contact Pam Long at 919-541-0641 or at

EPA will also accept written comments on the proposed changes until Nov. 13, 2006.
