1 This does not imply that Delaware believes transport is limited to EGU and large boiler emissions. To the contrary, Delaware believes programs like reasonably available control technology (RACT), new source review (NSR), transportation conformity, etc. are needed in all upwind areas to mitigate transport. This position is portrayed clearly in Delaware's December 2009 CAA 126 petition. However, in the context of EPA transport rule, which is the impetus for this SIP revision, BACT level controls on EGUs are clearly adequate to mitigate significant impact on downwind states.

2 §110(a)(2)(D)(i)(I) states, Contain adequate provisions- (i) prohibiting, consistent  with the  provisions of  this title, any source or other type of emissions activity within the State  from emitting any air pollutant  in amounts which will -  (I) contribute significantly to non-attainment  in, or  interfere  with maintenance  by, any  other State  with respect to any such  national  primary  or  secondary ambient air quality standard, or (II) interfere  with measures required to be included in the  applicable  implementation plan  for any  other State under part C to prevent significant deterioration  of air quality or to protect visibility, (ii) insuring compliance with the applicable requirements of sections 126 and 115 (relating to interstate and international pollution abatement).

3 Guidance on SIP Elements Required Under Sections 110(a)(1) and (2) for the 2006 24-Hour Fine Particle (PM2.5) National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS),"

4 DAQ emission tables can be found in the attachments (summaries, EGUs, non-EGUs, marine vessels and fuel combustion).

11 The difference between the EPA 2012 base case SO2 inventory and the budget for Delaware is 57 TPY. By Delaware correcting the problems with the inventory 1) overall modeled contributions would be much less given that EPA's 2012 SO2 projections are inflated on the order of 57%, and 2) Delaware's 2012 EGU projection will be less than the budget.

12 A few monitors in PA, NY and NJ were either shut down or had incomplete data for one year. However, the latest data shows those monitors in attainment nonetheless. Also, all monitors in MD are in attainment, based on discussions with MARAMA.

13 The Dauphin County, PA monitor was not operational in 2009 so DAQ averaged 2007-2008 for purposes of this analysis. NOTE: this average is not meant to mean design value for that monitor. Nonetheless the data shows compliance with the NAAQS for 2009 (see Tables 12 and 13).

14 Based on air travel distance between Dover to Pittsburgh. Both cities are the approximate centroid to Delaware, and Allegheny County. http://www.travelmath.com/flight-distance/from/Dover,+DE/to/Pittsburgh,+PA

15 Dauphin County did not have monitor data for 2009. However, 2007-2008 annual data was in attainment and in 2008 (latest year of data) was in attainment for the 24-hr NAAQS, with trends going downward from 2006.
