Notice of Proposed Revision to the State Implementation Plan for Oxides of Nitrogen, Notice of
Public Hearing, and Notice of Intent to Issue Revised Air Quality Operating Permit 43-00182.

 In accordance with 25 Pa. Code §§ 129.96—129.100, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection has made a preliminary determination to approve an alternate Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT II) plan and seeks approval of an amendment to the State Implementation Plan (SIP) for the metal tube manufacturing facility owned and operated by Wheatland Tube Company/Wheatland Tube Division in Wheatland Borough, Mercer County. In accordance with 25 Pa. Code § 127.521, the Department intends to modify the Title V Operating Permit for the facility.

 The proposed SIP revision does not adopt any new regulations. It incorporates the provisions and requirements contained in the amended RACT II approval for the facility, which are intended to satisfy the requirements for the 1997 National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) and the 2008 NAAQS for ozone.

 The proposed amendments to the RACT II determination, if finally approved, will be incorporated into a revised operating permit (43-00182) for the facility. The relevant RACT II requirements will be submitted to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a revision to Pennsylvania's State Implementation Plan and will remain in effect until replaced pursuant to 40 CFR 51 and approval by the EPA. Requirements that are not part of the RACT II determination will be excluded from the SIP submittal; this includes the provisions of the Department's presumptive RACT II requirements in accordance with 25 Pa. Code § 129.97, as they apply to existing sources at this facility.

 The following is a summary of the proposed amendments to the RACT II determination for this operation that will be submitted to the EPA as a SIP revision:

103 (#2 Galvanizing Kettle) NOx emissions shall not exceed 6.01 lb/hr
NOx emissions shall not exceed 26.32 tpy
102 and 103, Testing Requirement Within 180 days after (date of operating permit modification, non-reoccurring), the Permittee shall conduct EPA reference method stack testing for NOx in accordance with the requirements of Chapter 139, Subchapter A (relating to sampling and testing methods and procedures).
102 and 103, Work Practice Requirement (a) The owner or operator shall perform an annual source inspection and burner tune up (occurring at a minimum of once in any consecutive 12-month period).
(b) All burners shall undergo maintenance as needed to ensure proper tuning and air-fuel ratios. The burners shall be inspected monthly at a minimum.
101, 102 and 103, Recordkeeping Requirement (a) All Maintenance (i.e., routine and/or preventative maintenance, repairs, adjustments, parts replacements, calibrations, etc.) and inspections performed shall be recorded in a log. These records shall contain, at a minimum, the following:
(1) The date of the maintenance/inspection.
(2) The type of maintenance/inspection performed.
(3) A detailed description of the maintenance/inspection.
