An Air Quality Client Contact Meeting will be held Thursday, Nov. 17, from 1: p.m. to 3: p.m. in the DNR Air Quality Bureau conference rooms.
The first 30 minutes of the meeting will be devoted to reviewing and discussing a proposed rulemaking that would create a new Chapter 9A regarding informal compliance and enforcement options the DNR may consider in responding to possible violations of environmental statutes, rules, permits, licenses, certifications, and plans. The department will also be accepting informal comments on the proposed rulemaking during this time. Additional information on this proposed rulemaking can be found at http://www.iowadnr.gov/InsideDNR/RegulatoryAir/StakeholderInvolvement/PublicInput.aspx
The remainder of the client contact meeting will include an overview of plans for future rulemakings, a demonstration of a budget calculator relating to different air quality program funding scenarios, an update on implementation plans for the 1-hour sulfur dioxide ambient air quality standard, and an update on recent federal activities related to the department’s implementation of the 2006 fine particulate matter (PM2.5) ambient air quality standard. A portion of the meeting has also been set aside for general discussion and dialog on issues and topics to be determined by the meeting attendees.
