BACKGROUND

Because of the determination by the USEPA that the populated urban areas of Imperial County are nonattainment for the fine particulate matter with an aerodynamic diameter of less than two and one half microns (PM2.5) certain federal CAA applicable regulations triggered revisions to New Source Review (NSR) rules for sources that emit PM2.5 and precursors that contribute to PM2.5.  on May 16, 2008 (73 FR28321) EPA issued its final rule called the Implementation of the New Source Review Program for Particulate Matter Less than 2.5 Microns (PM2.5 NSR Implementation Rule).    The proposed revisions to the Air District's existing NSR rule will implement mandatory provisions under the permitting program for the federal nonattainment PM2.5 area as described in the PM2.5 NSR Implementation Rule.
