SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This proposal addresses the following local rule: Rule 400, Visible Emissions.

We do not plan to open a second comment period, so anyone interested in commenting should do so at this time. If we do not receive adverse comments, no further activity is planned. For further information, please see the direct final action.
