Latest version.
  • (a) The owner and operator of each SO2 source located within the State of Michigan and for which requirements are set forth under the Federal CAIR SO2 Trading Program in subparts AAA through III of part 97 of this chapter must comply with such applicable requirements. The obligation to comply with these requirements in part 97 of this chapter will be eliminated by the promulgation of an approval by the Administrator of a revision to the Michigan State Implementation Plan as meeting the requirements of CAIR for PM2.5 relating to SO2 under §51.124 of this chapter, except to the extent the Administrator's approval is partial or conditional or unless such approval is under §51.124(r) of this chapter.

    (b) Notwithstanding any provisions of paragraph (a) of this section and subparts AAA through III of part 97 of this chapter and any State's SIP to the contrary:

    (1) With regard to any control period that begins after December 31, 2014,

    (i) The provisions of paragraph (a) of this section relating to SO2 emissions shall not be applicable; and

    (ii) The Administrator will not carry out any of the functions set forth for the Administrator in subparts AAA through III of part 97 of this chapter; and

    (2) The Administrator will not deduct for excess emissions any CAIR SO2 allowances allocated for 2015 or any year thereafter.

    (c)(1) The owner and operator of each source and each unit located in the State of Michigan and Indian country within the borders of the State and for which requirements are set forth under the CSAPR SO2 Group 1 Trading Program in subpart CCCCC of part 97 of this chapter must comply with such requirements. The obligation to comply with such requirements with regard to sources and units in the State will be eliminated by the promulgation of an approval by the Administrator of a revision to Michigan's State Implementation Plan (SIP) as correcting the SIP's deficiency that is the basis for the CSAPR Federal Implementation Plan under §52.39 for those sources and units, except to the extent the Administrator's approval is partial or conditional. The obligation to comply with such requirements with regard to sources and units located in Indian country within the borders of the State will not be eliminated by the promulgation of an approval by the Administrator of a revision to Michigan's SIP.

    (2) Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph (c)(1) of this section, if, at the time of the approval of Michigan's SIP revision described in paragraph (c)(1) of this section, the Administrator has already started recording any allocations of CSAPR SO2 Group 1 allowances under subpart CCCCC of part 97 of this chapter to units in the State for a control period in any year, the provisions of subpart CCCCC of part 97 of this chapter authorizing the Administrator to complete the allocation and recordation of CSAPR SO2 Group 1 allowances to units in the State for each such control period shall continue to apply, unless provided otherwise by such approval of the State's SIP revision.
