DAR File No.: 41634

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:
Section 19-2-104 gives the Air Quality Board the power to control, abate, and prevent air pollution from all sources. Rule R307-406 helps control, abate, and prevent air pollution for the purpose of increasing visibility at Class I areas including Zion, Bryce, Capitol Reef, Arches, and Canyonlands National Parks. Rule R307-406 is also required by Section XVII, Visibility Protection, of the State Implementation Plan. This plan is required under Clean Air Act, 42 U.S.C. 7410 and 40 CFR 51 subpart P.
Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:
No written comments have been received about this rule since its 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:
Rule R307-406 is required by Section XVII, Visibility Protection, of the State Implementation Plan (SIP), which is incorporated by reference into the Utah Air Quality Rules under Rule R307-110. The SIP is required under Clean Air Act, 42 U.S.C. 7410 and 40 CFR 51 subpart P. Without the SIP, EPA would be required to impose a federal implementation plan. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
