EPA Changes Rules for Some Gasoline Dispensing Facilities

EPA is amending the pressure and vacuum vent valve cracking pressure and leak rate requirements for vapor balance systems used to control emissions from gasoline storage tanks at gasoline dispensing facilities. Newly constructed or reconstructed gasoline dispensing facilities must comply with the requirements of these amendments by the effective date of the amendments, or upon start-up, whichever is later. The direct final rule is effective on September 23, 2008.

The agency is not modifying the compliance date for existing sources with a monthly throughput of 100,000 gallons of gasoline or more; rather, this direct final action pertains to certain amendments to the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Source Category: Gasoline Dispensing Facilities, which EPA promulgated on Jan. 10, 2008, and amended on March 7, 2008.

The Jan. 10, 2008, rule established national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants for the facilities in the gasoline distribution (Stage I) area source category. This action affects only area source gasoline dispensing facilities with a monthly throughput of 100,000 gallons of gasoline or more.
