El Paso TX SIP Revision to Incorporate a Revised MOA with the City of El Paso

On August 17, 2011, the commission approved proposal of the El Paso SIP Revision to incorporate a revised Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the City of El Paso into the El Paso SIP for particles with an aerodynamic diameter less than or equal to a nominal 10 micrometers (PM10) (Project No. 2011-010-SIP-NR). This SIP revision would incorporate the changes to 30 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) §111.147 proposed in a concurrent rulemaking (Rule Project No. 2010-046-111-EN) and the revised MOA between the City of El Paso and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) (Project No. 2011-026-MIS-NR) into the El Paso PM10 SIP. The 2001 MOA with the City of El Paso is being revised to reflect the alternative control measures proposed in the revisions to 30 TAC §111.147 and the respective responsibilities of the City of El Paso and the TCEQ under the SIP.

The public comment period for this proposed SIP revision, proposed rule revision, and MOA will open on September 2, 2011, and close on October 3, 2011. The public hearing on this proposal will be held in El Paso, Texas, on September 27, 2011, at 2:00 p.m., at the El Paso State Office Building, 401 E. Franklin Ave., Room 570.
