This State Implementation Plan (SIP) submittal contains ADEQ rules that became effective 2004 - 2009 and are applicable statewide. Due to a delay in the procedure to codify the rules administered by the Arizona Secretary of State , two of the rulemakings are not yet codified. The Mineral Tailings Rule and the Repeal of Appendices 10 & 11, are being submitted in this SIP as Notices of Final Rulemakings (NFRMs). ADEQ commits to submit the codified versions as a SIP supplement as soon as practicable.
Copies of the Notice of Final Rulemakings (NFRM) are available for review in the Arizona Administrative Register
Consistent with the provisions of Arizona Revised Statutes § 49-104, 49-404, 49-406, and the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) , Title 40, § 51.102 through 51.104, and Appendix V to Title 40 CFR Part 51, revisions to Arizona's State Implementation Plan (SIP) must be submitted to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) by the director of the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) on behalf of the Governor. Once approved by U.S. EPA as published in the Federal Register with an effective date, the provisions contained in the SIP revision become enforceable by U.S. EPA and Arizona.
The SIP document is available for review at ADEQ's Records Center
