In November 2017, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) withdrew its direct final rule published in the Federal Register September 6, 2017 approving the State of New Hampshire's revision to its State Implementation Plan (SIP) based on a comment received during the comment period. The rule would have established emission standards and operating practices for incinerators and wood waste burners that are not regulated pursuant to federal incinerator standards. The affected rule is New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES) Rule Env-A 1900 Incinerators and Wood Waste Burners, which will remain unchanged until the EPA addresses, in a subsequent final action, the comment that was received. The EPA has noted that there will not be a second comment period.
Should you have any questions regarding the EPA's withdrawal decision, please call Trinity's New England Office at (508) 630‑2136.
