Public Notice

Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

6 NYCRR Part 204, NOx Budget Trading Program
6 NYCRR Part 237, Acid Deposition Reduction NOx Budget Trading Program
6 NYCRR Part 238, Acid Deposition Reduction SO2Budget Trading Program
6 NYCRR Part 200, General Provisions

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) gives notice of the following:

NYS DEC proposes to: (1) repeal 6 NYCRR Part 204, NOx Budget Trading Program, (2) render inoperative 6 NYCRR Part 237, Acid Deposition Reduction NOx Budget Trading Program upon completion of the 2009-2010 control period, and (3) render inoperative 6 NYCRR Part 238, Acid Deposition Reduction SO2 Budget Trading Program, upon completion of the 2010 control period.

The programs originally established under Parts 204, 237, and 238 have essentially been superseded by the programs established under 6 NYCRR Part 243, CAIR NOx Ozone Season Trading Program, 6 NYCRR Part 244, CAIR NOx Annual Trading Program, and 6 NYCRR Part 245, CAIR SO2 Trading Program. The proposed regulatory revisions will prevent affected sources from needing to comply with duplicative programs.

Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

6 NYCRR Part 249, Best Available Retrofit Technology (BART)
6 NYCRR Part 200, General Provisions

Pursuant to Environmental Conservation Law, Sections 1-0101, 3-0301, 19-0103, 19-0105, 19-0301, 19-0302, 19-0303, 19-0305, 71-2103 and 71-2105 the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) hereby gives notice of the following:

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation proposes to revise 6 NYCRR Part 249, Best Available Retrofit Technology (BART) and 6 NYCRR Part 200, General Provisions. NYS DEC is also proposing to revise the State Implementation Plan (SIP) by incorporating Part 249 and related revisions to Part 200. These regulations will assist NYS DEC in fulfilling the regional haze requirements of the Clean Air Act. The Act requires NYS DEC to reduce emissions of visibility-impairing pollutants (nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, and particulate matter less than 10 microns in size) from major stationary sources which affect visibility in downwind Federal Class I areas, with the goal to eventually restore natural visibility conditions in these areas.

BART-eligible sources are those which belong to one of 26 specific source categories; commenced operation between August 7, 1962 and August 7, 1977, or underwent reconstruction during this time period; and have the potential to emit 250 tons per year or more of any of the visibility-impairing pollutants. BART-eligible sources which contribute to visibility impairment in Class I areas will be required to perform an analysis of potential controls for all visibility-impairing pollutants. NYS DEC is proposing that this analysis of controls be due to the Department by October 1, 2010, and that approved control equipment or other emission reduction methods be installed and operating no later than July 1, 2013.

NYS DEC is proposing to amend 6 NYCRR Part 200 to add a reference document under Referenced Material in Table 1, section 200.9.

Hearing Notice

Notice is hereby given that the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) will hold joint legislative public hearings on:

a) proposed revisions to 6 NYCRR Part 218, Emission Standards for Motor Vehicles and Motor Vehicle Engines, and attendant revisions to 6 NYCRR Part 200, General Provisions;
b) the repeal of 6 NYCRR Part 204, NOx Budget Trading Program, and attendant revisions to 6 NYCRR Part 200, General Provisions; proposed revisions to 6 NYCRR Part 237, Acid Deposition Reduction NOx Budget Trading Program, and 6 NYCRR Part 238, Acid Deposition Reduction SO2 Budget Trading Program, and attendant revisions to 6 NYCRR Part 200, General Provisions, and revisions to the State Implementation Plan (SIP) to remove Part 204 and attendant revisions to Part 200;
c) proposed revisions to 6 NYCRR Part 243, CAIR NOx Ozone Season Trading Program; 6 NYCRR Part 244, CAIR NOx Annual Trading Program; 6 NYCRR Part 245, CAIR SO2 Trading Program, and attendant revisions to 6 NYCRR Part 200, General Provisions; and revisions to the State Implementation Plan (SIP) to incorporate the proposed revisions to Parts 243, 244 and 245, and attendant revisions to Part 200; and
d) proposed new 6 NYCRR Part 249, Best Available Retrofit Technology (BART), and attendant revisions to 6 NYCRR Part 200, General Provisions, and revisions to the State Implementation Plan (SIP) to incorporate the proposed promulgation of Part 249, and attendant revisions to Part 200.

The statutory authority for the amendments to Part 218 and attendant revisions to Part 200 is the Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) Sections 1-0101, 1-0303, 3-0301, 19-0103, 19-0105, 19-0107, 19-0301, 19-0303, 19-0305, 71-2103, 71-2105 and section 177 of the Federal Clean Air Act (42 USC 7507).

The statutory authority for the amendments to Parts 204, 237, and 238 is the ECL, Sections 1-0101, 19-0103, 19-0105, 19-0301, 19-0303, and 19-0311.

The statutory authority for the amendments to Parts 243, 244, and 245 is the ECL, Sections 1-0101, 19-0301, 19-0103, 19-0105, 19-0301, 19-0303, 19-0305, and 19-0311.

The statutory authority for the promulgation of Part 249 is the ECL, Sections 1-0101, 3-0301, 19-0103, 19-0105, 19-0301, 19-0302, 19-0303, 19-0305, 71-2103, and 71-2105.

NYS DEC proposes to amend Part 218, Emission Standards for Motor Vehicles and Motor Vehicle Engines, and amend Part 200, General Provisions. The proposed amendments would simplify the existing zero emission vehicle (ZEV) program, increase compliance flexibility, and create incentives for new ZEV technology while maintaining the technology forcing nature of the current program. The ZEV regulations take effect for all 2009 and subsequent model year passenger cars and light-duty trucks. NYS DEC is also proposing to adopt California's experimental permit procedures for on-road motor vehicles. This proposal would enable NYS DEC to issue anti-tampering exemptions for experimental pollution control devices being tested on vehicles in New York State. The research authorization procedures will take effect for all 1993 and subsequent model year California certified on-road motor vehicles.

NYS DEC intends to (1) repeal 6 NYCRR Part 204, NOx Budget Trading Program, (2) render inoperative 6 NYCRR Part 237, Acid Deposition Reduction NOx Budget Trading Program upon completion of the 2009-2010 control period, and (3) render inoperative 6 NYCRR Part 238, Acid Deposition Reduction SO2 Budget Trading Program, upon completion of the 2010 control period. These rules have essentially been superseded by 6 NYCRR Part 243, CAIR NOx Ozone Season Trading Program, 6 NYCRR Part 244, CAIR NOx Annual Trading Program, and 6 NYCRR Part 245, CAIR SO2 Trading Program (the NYS CAIR rules). These proposed regulatory revisions will prevent affected sources from needing to comply with duplicative programs.

NYS DEC proposes to revise the terms of the NYS CAIR rules to incorporate changes to the model federal regulations on which the NYS CAIR rules are based, and make minor clarifications and corrections to the NYS CAIR rules.

NYS DEC proposes new Part 249, Best Available Retrofit Technology (BART) in response to a federal requirement under the regional haze provisions of the Clean Air Act. Sources which are found BART-eligible under certain criteria and which contribute to visibility impairment in Federal Class I areas will be required to submit an analysis of potential BART controls to the Department by October 1, 2010 and complete installation of approved controls by July 1, 2013 under the proposed regulation.

Notice of Emergency Adoption and Proposed Rule Making

New York State Department of Environmental Conservation

6 NYCRR Part 649, New York State Water Pollution Control Revolving Fund Regulations

Pursuant to Environmental Conservation Law Sections Environmental Conservation Law Sections 1-0101, 3-0301, 15-0101, 15-0105, 15-0109, 15-0315, 15-0317, 15-1303; L.1989, ch. 565

Purpose: The emergency/proposed rule amends 6 NYCRR Part 649 to set forth rules and procedures whereby the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) can adhere to its current administrative policies and practices and also meet a February 10, 2010 deadline for States to have projects underway or under contract or lose the funds provided in the stimulus legislation entitled the "American Recovery and Reinvestment Act" (ARRA).

The proposed regulations allow for funding to be extended to green infrastructure, water, and energy efficiency improvements or other environmentally innovative activities and projects. Other provisions allow NYS DEC to provide funding for pre-design planning and to bypass projects on the Intended Use Plan based upon project readiness. The use of ARRA funds in New York State will create and retain jobs, and fuel critical environmental infrastructure construction throughout New York State.

The formal Notice is scheduled to be published in the October 10, 2009 State Register.

New York State Drinking Water State Revolving Fund Intended Use Plan

Draft Amendment #8 to the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund Intended Use Plan issued September 30, 2008 was published in the September 30, 2009 issue of the Environmental Notice Bulletin. The comment period for the Draft Amendment #8 closed on October 15, 2009. The New York State Department of Health received no public comments pertaining to this amendment. Therefore, the amendment to the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund Intended Use Plan is final as shown below:

"The New York State Department of Health (NYS DOH) and the New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation (NYS EFC) amended the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) Final Intended Use Plan (IUP) dated September 30, 2008 to identify fourteen projects that met the criteria established for receiving funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). The ARRA projects and their estimated project funding amounts are provided in the Final Amendment #8 posted on the NYS DOH public web site at: http://www.health.ny.gov/environmental/water/drinking/water.htm. This amendment also extended the 2009 IUP period beyond September 30, 2009 to March 31, 2010 to provide additional time to administer and close all financings for eligible 2009 ARRA and non-ARRA projects within the confines of the 2009 IUP."

Notice of Completion of an Environmental Impact Statement and Public Hearings

Draft Supplemental Generic Environmental Impact Statement on the Oil, Gas and Solution Mining Regulatory Program

Well Permit Issuance for Horizontal Drilling and High-Volume Hydraulic Fracturing to Develop the Marcellus Shale and Other Low-Permeability Gas Reservoirs

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) has, in accordance with Article 8 of the Environmental Conservation Law, prepared a Draft Supplemental Generic Environmental Impact Statement (SGEIS) on the Oil, Gas and Solution Mining Regulatory Program. NYS DEC released the draft SGEIS on September 30, 2009. The Draft SGEIS is available for review on the NYS DEC website at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/energy/58440.html and at the locations listed under Document Availability below.

Lead Agency: New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, Division of Mineral Resources, 625 Broadway, Albany NY 12233-6500.

Contact: Jack Dahl, NYS DEC - Division of Mineral Resources, Bureau of Oil and Gas Regulation, 625 Broadway, Albany NY 12233-6500 Phone: (518) 402-8056.

Description of Action: The proposed action is NYS DEC issuance of permits to drill, deepen, plug back or convert wells for horizontal drilling and high-volume hydraulic fracturing in the Marcellus Shale and other low-permeability natural gas reservoirs. The SGEIS is focused on topics not addressed by NYS DEC's 1992 Generic Environmental Impact Statement on the Oil, Gas and Solution Mining Regulatory Program.

State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA) Classification: Unlisted.

Project Location: The SGEIS, along with the original GEIS, is applicable to onshore oil and gas well drilling statewide. Sedimentary rock formations which may someday be developed by horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing exist from the Vermont/Massachusetts border up to the St. Lawrence/Lake Champlain region, west along Lake Ontario to Lake Erie and across the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes regions. Drilling will not occur on State-owned lands in the Adirondack and Catskill Forest preserves because of the State Constitution's requirement that Forest Preserve lands be kept forever wild and not be leased or sold. In addition, the subsurface geology of the Adirondacks, New York City and Long Island renders drilling for hydrocarbons in those areas unlikely.

The prospective region for extraction of natural gas from the Marcellus and Utica Shales has been roughly described as an area extending from Chautauqua County eastward to Greene, Ulster and Sullivan Counties, and from the Pennsylvania border north to the approximate location of the east-west portion of the New York State Thruway between Schenectady and Auburn. Maps in the Draft SGEIS depict the prospective area.

Comments: NYS DEC is accepting written comments on the Draft SGEIS until November 30, 2009 and a series of four public comment sessions will be held in October and November for the purpose of accepting both verbal and written comments. Details regarding the public comment sessions are available on the Department's website at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/energy/58705.html.

Each meeting location listed below will open at 6:00 p.m. for speaker sign up and NYS DEC staff will be available to answer individual questions about the format and contents of the Draft SGEIS during this time. Each public comment session will begin at 7:00 p.m.
