2021 Florida Ongoing Data Requirements Annual Report

Document Type: 

On July 1, 2021, pursuant to the ongoing data requirements of the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA's) Data Requirements Rule (DRR) in 40 CFR 51.1205, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (Department) submitted an annual report to EPA for the areas around three DRR-applicable sources in Florida that EPA designated "Attainment/Unclassifiable" for the 2010 one-hour sulfur dioxide (SO2) National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) based on modeling of actual SO2 emissions. The three sources subject to the ongoing data requirements are:

  • Jacksonville Electric Authority’s (JEA's) Northside Generating Station/St. Johns River Power Park (NGS/SJRPP);
  • WestRock CP, LLC’s Fernandina Beach Mill (WestRock); and
  • Lakeland Electric’s C. D. McIntosh Power Plant (McIntosh).

The DRR requires that these areas be reviewed annually to document the annual SO2 emissions of each applicable source in each such area and determine whether additional modeling is needed to characterize the air quality in any area.

The annual report documents SO2 emissions decreases for all three areas and requests EPA’s approval to terminate the ongoing data requirements under the DRR for McIntosh as the area around this source meets the NAAQS based upon maximum allowable emissions modeling.
