August 3, 2010: Proposed approval of the Gila River Indian Community Tribal Implementation Plan.
EPA is proposing to approve the Gila River Indian Community’s Tribal Implementation Plan (TIP) under the Clean Air Act to regulate air pollution within the exterior boundaries of the Tribe’s reservation. The proposed TIP includes ambient air quality standards, permitting requirements for minor sources of air pollution, enforcement authorities, procedures for administrative appeals and judicial review in Tribal court, requirements for area sources of fugitive dust and fugitive particulate matter, and source category-specific emission limitations. This is the most comprehensive TIP in the nation.
