ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

40 CFR Part 52

[EPA-R09-OAR-2014-0256; FRL-9935-66-Region 9]


Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; Arizona; 
Phased Discontinuation of Stage II Vapor Recovery Program

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Withdrawal of direct final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Due to the receipt of adverse comments, the Environmental 
Protection Agency (EPA) is withdrawing the September 2, 2015 direct 
final rule that approves a state implementation plan (SIP) revision 
related to the removal of ``Stage II'' vapor recovery equipment at 
gasoline dispensing facilities in the Phoenix-Mesa area. The EPA will 
address the comments in a subsequent final action based upon the 
proposed rulemaking action, also published on September 2, 2105. The 
EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action.

DATES: The direct final rule published at 80 FR 53001 on September 2, 
2015 is withdrawn, effective October 27, 2015.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jeffrey Buss, Air Planning Office 
(AIR-2), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region IX, 75 Hawthorne, 
San Francisco, California 94105; (415) 947-4152; buss.jeffrey@epa.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On September 2, 2015 (80 FR 53001), the EPA 
published a direct final rule approving a SIP revision submitted by the 
Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ). The revision 
provides for the phased removal of Stage II vapor recovery equipment at 
gasoline dispensing facilities in the Phoenix-Mesa area. Specifically, 
the revision eliminates the requirement to install and operate such 
equipment at new gasoline dispending facilities, and provides for the 
phased removal of such equipment at existing gasoline dispensing 
facilities from October 2016 through September 2018. In the direct 
final rule, the EPA stated that if adverse comments were received by 
October 2, 2015, the EPA would publish a timely withdrawal of the 
direct final rule and address the comments in a subsequent final rule. 
The EPA received adverse comments and is therefore withdrawing the 
direct final rule. The EPA will address these comments in a separate 
final action based on the proposed action also published on September 
2, 2015 (80 FR 53086). The EPA will not open a second comment period 
for this action.
