ENB - Statewide Notices 8/1/2012

Public Notice

Pursuant to the Environmental Conservation Law sections 11-0303, 13-0105 and 13-0329-16 the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) hereby gives notice of the following:

Notice of Emergency Adoption and Proposed Rule Making to amend 6 NYCRR Part 44 pertaining to lobster regulations. This rule making will adopt mandatory V-notching of legal size egg-bearing female lobsters captured by lobster permit holders in Lobster Conservation Management Area (LMA) 4. A V-notch is a triangular cut on the tail fin of a legal size female egg-bearing lobster that takes several molts to disappear. It is illegal to harvest a lobster that has been marked thusly. The V-notch protects female lobsters from harvest for two years.

This rule making is necessary to reduce lobster harvest by 10% and to remain in compliance with the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission Interstate Fishery Management Plan for the American Lobster. It also establishes rules that require permit holders who fish in more than one LMA to abide by the most restrictive V-notch rules of the LMAs listed on their permit.

This notice will be published in issue 31 of the State Register, dated August 1, 2012.

Notice of Adoption to amend 6 NYCRR Part 40 pertaining to recreational summer flounder, scup, and black sea bass regulations.

Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

6 NYCRR Part 201, Permits and Registrations
6 NYCRR Part 200, General Provisions

Pursuant to Sections 1-0101, 3-0301, 3-0303, 19-0103, 19-0105, 19-0301, 19-0302, 19-0303, 19-0305, 19-0306, 19-0311, 70-0109, 71-2103, and 71-2105 of the Environmental Conservation Law (ECL), 40 CFR 70, Section 7661[b] of the United States Code (USC), and Sections 160-169 and 171-193 of the Federal Clean Air Act (Act) (42 USC Sections 7470-7479;7501-7515), the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) hereby gives notice of the following:

NYS DEC is proposing to revise and update Part 201, Permits and Registrations to further clarify its requirements and simplify its implementation, making it more efficient and cost effective for affected facilities. NYS DEC is also proposing to revise the State Implementation Plan (SIP) to remove an outdated Part 201 that was approved by EPA on 10/03/05 (70FR5711) and incorporate the proposed revisions to Paragraph 201-2.1(b)(21), Section 201-7.1, Section 201-7.2 and attendant revisions to Part 200.

The proposed changes to Part 201 include the addition of several exempt and trivial activities, the removal of outdated transition plan requirements and many other minor language corrections. The provisions for emission sources operating on a temporary basis will also be clarified. Permitting thresholds for 62 persistent, bioaccumulative, and/or toxic compounds are also being added in order to more closely monitor and where possible control their emissions. Facility owners and operators still holding outdated certificates to operate will be required to update their current permit by submitting a permit or registration application. Lastly, NYS DEC is proposing to limit the term of issuance for state facility permits and registrations to 10 years, ensuring that the air permits and registrations issued by NYS DEC contain the most up to date information possible. The scope of the existing Part 201 is not changed as a result of these proposed revisions.
