Notice of Rule Amendment Proposal
N.J.A.C. 7:27-27 Control and Prohibition of Mercury Emissions, and N.J.A.C. 7:27A-3.10

Public Notice
Take notice that the NJ Department of Environmental Protection is proposing amendments at N.J.A.C. 7:27-27, Control and Prohibition of Mercury Emissions, which set forth the requirements and procedures for the control and prohibition of air pollution from mercury emissions from coal fired boilers. In addition, the Department is proposing related amendments at N.J.A.C. 7:27A-3.10, Air Administrative Procedures and Penalties. The N.J.A.C. 7:27-27 amendments would provide a one year extension of the compliance deadline in case additional time is necessary for adjustment, optimization, and alternative reagent evaluation to enable a coal fired boiler to consistently meet the emission standards in the rules.

The N.J.A.C. 7:27A-3.10 amendment establishes penalties that are consistent with existing penalties for similar violations. Any owner or operator of a source subject to the proposed amendments and new rules who fails to comply with any applicable provision of N.J.A.C. 7:27-27 would be subject to civil administrative penalties in the amounts proposed in N.J.A.C. 7:27A-3.10(m)(27).

The proposal is scheduled to be published in the New Jersey Register dated August 1, 2005. Copies of the Department’s proposal are available from the Department’s web site at, the Department’s Public Information Center at 401 E. State Street in Trenton, the Department’s Regional Enforcement Offices, a number of public libraries throughout the State, and, for a fee, from Westlaw Publishing at 1-800-808-WEST.
