Proposed Part 231 New Source Review, and Part 200 General Provisions

The Department is proposing to amend Part 231 to conform to changes in the federal New Source Review (NSR) rule and related court rulings, including changes to NSR applicability based on emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) and certain monitoring and impact assessment requirements for particulate matter or particles with an aerodynamic diameter less than or equal to 2.5 micrometers (PM-2.5). The Department is also proposing to revise Part 231 to update the listed Global Warming Potentials, remove specific references to dispersion modeling guidance, and specify when oxides of nitrogen offsets can be used for both ozone and PM-2.5. Lastly, this proposed rule will make clarifying changes and fix minor typographical errors.

Due to the unprecedented nature of Covid-19, Governor Cuomo has issued a PAUSE Order directing non-essential meetings/gatherings to be suspended or cancelled. See Executive Order 202 and subsequent additions. As a result, at this time, the Department is cancelling the previously scheduled public hearings for this proposed rulemaking and extending the comment period for this rulemaking for 30 days.

Comment period closed.

The public comment period for this rulemaking is extended until 5 p.m. on May 21, 2020 and should be directed to:
