The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) Division of Air Quality (DAQ) will conduct a public hearing on proposed amendments to 7 DE Admin. Code 1125, Requirements for Preconstruction Review (Docket # 2019-R-A-0018). These amendments are being proposed to incorporate by reference the most recent revisions to the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Guideline on Air Quality Models, as set forth in Appendix W to 40 CFR Part 51 – Requirements for Preparation, Adoption, and Submittal of Implementation Plans (Guideline). In 1978, EPA published the Guideline and has subsequently made several revisions, therefore DAQ is proposing to amend 7 DE Admin. Code 1125 for consistency with the EPA.
The public hearing will be held at 6:00 pm on Wednesday, September 25, 2019 in the DNREC R&R Auditorium, located at 89 Kings Highway, Dover, DE 19901.
The proposed amendments may be inspected at the Department’s offices located at State Street Commons, 100 W. Water Street, Suite 6A, Dover, DE 19904 and online as of September 1, 2019 at regulations.delaware.gov/services/current_issue.shtml
