Sulfur Storage and Handling Facilities - Proposed SIP Revision

The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) submitted a proposed revision of Florida's State Implementation Plan (SIP) to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) on April 5, 2012. The SIP revision consists of amendments to Florida's rules to repeal sections 62-212.600 and 62-296.411, F.A.C. These regulations for sulfur storage and handling facilities are no longer necessary. At the time these regulations were written in 1985, there was concern that total suspended particulate matter levels in Florida's would be negatively impacted by sulfur handling and storage to such an extent as to warrant additional facility-specific work practices and monitoring. This has turned out not to be the case. The particulate matter emissions from these facilities are negligible. The General Preconstruction Review Requirements and Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) provisions of sections 62-212.300 and 62-212.400, F.A.C., respectively; and the General Pollutant Emission Limiting Standards of section 62-296.320, F.A.C., can be applied instead to adequately control these negligible particulate emissions.
