DEC is proposing the addition of Subpart 227-3, "Ozone Season Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) Emission Limits for Simple Cycle and Regenerative Combustion Turbines." The primary goal of this proposal is to lower allowable NOx emissions from simple cycle and regenerative combustion turbines during the ozone season. The lower emissions from these sources will help to address CAA requirements, ozone nonattainment and protect the health of NYS residents. This proposal is only applicable to simple cycle and regenerative combustion turbines. This is not a mandate on local governments. It applies to any entity that owns or operates a subject source. Further, DEC proposes to submit Subpart 227-3 to EPA as a revision to the SIP for NYS.

DEC is revising 6 NYCRR Part 205 "Architectural and Industrial Maintenance (AIM) Coatings," and Part 200, "General Provisions." AIM coatings, such as paint, are applied to stationary structures or their appurtenances at the site of installation, portable buildings at the site of installation, pavements, or curbs. The purpose of this rulemaking is to reduce emissions from AIM coatings by reducing the VOC content limits for some coating categories. In addition, this revision removes the quart exemption.

Hearings for the proposed rule and attendant revisions to existing rules described above will be held as follows and are scheduled in places that are reasonably accessible to persons with impaired mobility.
