Five-Year Notice of Review and Statement of Continuation
DAR File No.: 41223
Filed: 01/27/2017 09:13:23 AM
NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION
Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:
The Utah Air Quality Board enacted Rule R307-326 under the authority of Subsection 19-2-104(1)(a). Subsection 19-2-104(1)(a) authorizes the Air Quality Board to make rules "regarding the control, abatement, and prevention of air pollution from all sources and the establishment of the maximum quantity of air contaminants that may be emitted by any air contaminants source." Rule R307-326 does this by establishing reasonably available control technology for controlling hydrocarbon emissions from petroleum refineries that are located in ozone nonattainment and maintenance areas.
Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:
There were no written comments on this rule since the last five-year review.
Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:
This rule should be continued because the rule is required under the state implementation plan for ozone, incorporated by reference under Section R307-110-13. The plan is also required by Section 110 of the Clean Air Act. Without the state plan, EPA would be required to impose a Federal Implementation Plan. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
