Air Pollution Control District (VCAPCD), and Placer County Air

Pollution Control District (PCAPCD) portion of the California State

Implementation Plan (SIP). These revisions concern volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from organic chemical manufacturing, soil decontamination, and polyester resin operations. We are proposing to approve local rules to regulate these emission sources under the Clean

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This proposal addresses the following local rules: SMAQMD Rule 464 (Organic Chemical Manufacturing Operations),

VCAPCD Rule 74.29 (Soil Decontamination), and PCAPCD Rule 243

(Polyester Resin Operations). In the Rules and Regulations section of this Federal Register, we are approving these local rules in a direct final action without prior proposal because we believe these SIP revisions are not controversial. If we receive adverse comments, however, we will publish a timely withdrawal of the direct final rule and address the comments in subsequent action based on this proposed rule. Please note that if we receive adverse comment on an amendment, paragraph, or section of this rule and if that provision may be severed from the remainder of the rule, we may adopt as final those provisions of the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment.

We do not plan to open a second comment period, so anyone interested in commenting should do so at this time. If we do not receive adverse comments, no further activity is planned. For further information, please see the direct final action.

Dated: August 16, 2011.

Jared Blumenfeld,

Regional Administrator, Region IX.
