LEGAL NOTICE

PUBLIC HEARING

The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) Division of Air Quality will conduct a public hearing on proposed amendments to 7 DE Admin. Code 1150, Outer Continental Shelf Air Regulations.

7 DE Admin. Code 1150 was promulgated in June 2010 to allow Delaware to regulate air emissions pursuant to the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s regulations codified at 40 CFR Part 55, which were issued under Section 328(a)(1) of the federal Clean Air Act.  The EPA’s regulations apply to all sources of air emissions from within the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS).  For Delaware, the OCS is the area that is within 25 miles of Delaware’s coastal boundaries along the Atlantic Ocean.  This means that air emissions from within the OCS are regulated in the same manner as if the source was located on Delaware’s land.  In practice, this regulation allows the Department to issue permits for any source to be regulated under 40 CFR Part 55, thereby effectively regulating air pollutants emitted in the OCS consistent with state and federal laws and regulations. 

The Division of Air Quality (DAQ) is proposing to amend 7 DE Admin. Code 1150 to incorporate updates to the OCS regulations at 40 CFR Part 55, which have been finalized since the state regulation was adopted in 2010. 

The public hearing on proposed amendments to 7 DE Admin. Code 1150, Outer Continental Shelf Air Regulations will be held at 6:00 pm on Monday, January 7, 2019 at the Division of Air Quality’s office located at State Street Commons, 100 W. Water Street, Suite 6A, Dover, DE 19904.

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.

For additional information or any appointments to inspect the proposed amendments to 7 DE Admin. Code 1150, please contact Mark A. Prettyman with the Division of Air Quality’s offices located at State Street Commons, 100 W. Water Street, Suite 6A, Dover, DE 19904, by phone at 302-739-9402, or by email at mark.prettyman@state.de.us.

Interested parties shall submit comments in writing on the proposed regulatory revisions by the end of the comment period, which is close of business on Tuesday, January 22, 2019, to Mark A. Prettyman, and/or statements and testimony may be presented either orally or in writing at the Monday, January 7, 2019 public hearing.  Written statements and comments should be addressed to:
