HISTORY
First Notice: February 21, 2007, Indiana Register (DIN: 20070221-IR-326070088FNA).
Second Notice: August 8, 2007, Indiana Register (DIN: 20070808-IR-326070088SNA).
Notice of First Hearing: August 8, 2007, Indiana Register (DIN: 20070808-IR-326070088PHA).
Date of First Hearing: October 3, 2007.

PUBLIC COMMENTS UNDER IC 13-14-9-4.5
IC 13-14-9-4.5 states that a board may not adopt a rule under IC 13-14-9 that is substantively different from the draft rule published under IC 13-14-9-4 until the board has conducted a third comment period that is at least 21 days long.
Because this proposed rule is not substantively different from the draft rule published on August 8, 2007, at DIN: 20070808-IR-326070088SNA, the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) is not requesting additional comment on this proposed rule.

SUMMARY/RESPONSE TO COMMENTS FROM THE SECOND COMMENT PERIOD
The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) requested public comment from August 8, 2007, through September 7, 2007, on IDEM's draft rule language. IDEM received comments from the following party:
ISG Burns Harbor LLC (ISG)
Following is a summary of the comments received and IDEM's responses thereto:
Comment: We support the draft amendments to 326 IAC 6-6-5 "Bethlehem Steel Corporation fugitive dust control strategy". The amended rule will allow more flexibility to employ improved technologies on a schedule based on actual plant operations. The amount of paved and unpaved roads and their configurations have changed over the last 20 years, so that the map and mileage requirements of 326 IAC 6-6-5 are no longer accurate. (ISG)
Response: IDEM agrees that the draft amendments to 326 IAC 6-6-5 will provide more efficient use of resources and provide equivalent or improved fugitive particulate matter emission control. IDEM believes that the section of the draft rule amending 326 IAC 6-6-5 provides thorough guidance on how to address the potential fugitive particulate matter emissions, and that the draft amendments to 326 IAC 6-6-5 will result in a plan that is easier to modify as new technologies or business practices are introduced, and will also result in more efficient and less costly fugitive particulate matter control strategies.
Comment: We suggest that "Bethlehem Steel Corporation" and "Bethlehem" be deleted and replaced throughout 326 IAC 6-6-5 with "ISG Burns Harbor LLC". (ISG)
Response: IDEM agrees, and has proposed the appropriate changes in this rulemaking.
Comment: We support the draft amendment to 326 IAC 7-4-14 removing the SO2 emission limit for the blast furnace gas flare. Removing the SO2 emission limit for the blast furnace gas flare will increase regulatory consistency, result in no increase in the actual emissions of SO2 and no operational changes at ISG Burns Harbor LLC, result in no impact on modeled emissions, and will eliminate an outdated standard. (ISG)
Comment: There is no SO2 emission limit for the blast furnace gas flare at U.S. Steel Gary Works in neighboring Lake County. Air quality modeling conducted for U.S. Steel Gary Works accounted for the use of more blast furnace gas in the other combustion units than could be produced. IDEM agreed that including the blast furnace flares in the Lake County SO2 attainment demonstration model was not appropriate when all potentially available blast furnace gas is accounted for in modeled emissions from other combustion units. Because ISG Burns Harbor's system for blast furnace gas combustion is identical to that used by Gary Works, the SO2 emission limit for the 326 IAC 7-4-14 blast furnace gas flare can be eliminated without affecting Porter County's demonstrated SO2 NAAQS attainment. (ISG)
Comment: IDEM should eliminate the 326 IAC 7-4-14 blast furnace gas flare SO2 emission limit because the emission factor used to generate the emission limitation of 0.07 lb/MMBtu is inherently difficult to validate and has not been peer reviewed or incorporated in U.S. EPA's Compilation of Emission Factors. (ISG)
Response: IDEM agrees that there will be no negative environmental impact on the ambient air quality with respect to SO2 emissions as a result of this rulemaking. Air quality modeling performed to establish the 326 IAC 7-4-14 SO2 emission limits for emission points at the steelmaking plant attribute 100% of the available blast furnace gas to being used in the blast furnace stoves, coke ovens, and the power station boilers. Compliance with the SO2 emission limits established for the processes using blast furnace gas assures protection of the National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) for SO2, regardless of the presence of an SO2 emission limit for the blast furnace gas flare. IDEM acknowledges that SO2 emission limits are not imposed on flares for any other steelmaking operations or for any other flares in Indiana. IDEM agrees that add-on control technologies do not currently exist for SO2 emission control at blast furnace gas flares, and that the blast furnace gas flare is a necessary control device for the safe operation of the blast furnace gas distribution system. IDEM further agrees that because the sulfur content present in raw materials processed at ISG Burns Harbor LLC's blast furnaces is highly variable, and that the nature of the steelmaking process requires a continuous addition of raw materials to the blast furnace, it is technically infeasible to manage the sulfur content of the materials charged in the blast furnace to achieve compliance with the blast furnace flare SO2 emission limit. For these reasons, IDEM agrees that it is appropriate and necessary to remove the SO2 emission limit for ISG Burns Harbor LLC's blast furnace gas flare from 326 IAC 7-4-14.

SUMMARY/RESPONSE TO COMMENTS RECEIVED AT THE FIRST PUBLIC HEARING
On October 3, 2007, the Air Pollution Control Board (board) conducted the first public hearing/board meeting concerning the development of amendments to 326 IAC 6-6-5 and 326 IAC 7-4-14 concerning operations at ISG Burns Harbor LLC. No comments were made at the first hearing.

Sec. 5. (a) In order to implement its nontraditional fugitive dust control program, Bethlehem shall purchase a high pressure water flushing truck and a tractor sweeper with broom and install a water filling station for the flusher truck and a tank for the storage and dispensing of liquid chemical dust retardant. The following control measures shall then be implemented at the Burns Harbor Plant at the specified frequency.
(1) A total of twenty-four (24) miles of paved and unpaved roads as shown in Figure 1 shall be controlled as described below:
(A) A total of 12.7 miles of paved roads shall be cleaned three (3) times per week by water washing using a flusher truck except as indicated in subsection (a)(4) of this section. In addition, at least twice per week, 7.9 miles of these roads in the primary facilities area will also be wet swept using a tractor mounted broom following the flusher truck. Road shoulders on the 12.7 miles of paved roads will be graded as required and treated with a chemical dust retardant at the same frequency specified below for unpaved roads. Accumulated material on road shoulders will be removed at least once per month.
(B) A total of 11.3 miles of unpaved roads shall be controlled. This will consist of forming a uniform road surface by road grading to remove large material, and the application of a two (2) to four (4) inch layer of fine slag where necessary. Surfaces shall be sprayed with dust suppressant solution at an application rate consistent with the manufacturer's recommendations. The dust suppressant material and application rate shall be such that a crust will be formed on the road surface that is amenable to cleaning via flushing and sweeping. Road surfaces shall be cleaned twice per week with a flusher truck followed by a tractor mounted broom. Road surfaces shall be resprayed with chemical dust suppressant as necessary to maintain a cleanable surface. The solution strength and application rate will be determined prior to application based upon the condition of the surfaces.
(2) Bethlehem shall control its low volatile coal storage piles by spraying them at least once per week with a chemical dust retardant.
(3) Records of all fugitive dust control activities shall be maintained. At a minimum, records shall contain the following information:
