EPA is proposing to approve three final and one draft State Implementation Plan (SIP) revisions submitted by the State of Georgia, through the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (GA EPD), to EPA on November 13, 1992, October 21, 2009, March 19, 2012, and July 19, 2012 (draft SIP revision). With regard only to the July 19, 2012, SIP submission, EPA is also proposing, in the alternative, to conditionally approve that revision which relates to certain control techniques guidelines (CTG) categories. Together, these four revisions establish reasonably available control technology (RACT) requirements for the major sources located in the Atlanta, Georgia 1997 8-hour ozone nonattainment area (hereafter referred to as the ``Atlanta Area'') that either emit volatile organic compounds (VOC), nitrogen oxides (NOx), or both. Georgia's SIP revisions include certain VOC source categories for which EPA has issued CTG. EPA has evaluated the proposed revisions to Georgia's SIP, and has made the preliminary determination that they are consistent with statutory and regulatory requirements and EPA guidance.
