The Division of Air Quality (DAQ) is proposing to amend 7 DE Admin. Code 1150 to incorporate updates to the federal OCS regulations at 40 CFR Part 55, which have been finalized since the state regulation was adopted in 2010. The EPAs 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 Delawares 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 Delawares 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. Persons wishing to comment on the aforementioned proposed amendments may do so either orally or in written form at the public hearing on May 22, 2019. The hearing record will open on May 1 and will remain open for receipt of comment through the close of business on Thursday, June 6, 2019. In lieu of attending the public hearing, written comments may be submitted to the Hearing Officer either via email to Lisa.Vest@delaware.gov or via USPS to the following address: Lisa A. Vest, DNREC Office of the Secretary, 89 Kings Highway, Dover, DE 19901
