You may have recently received an e-mail from the MassDEP with the subject line: IMPORTANT-Notice of EPA’s retirement of air pollution control devices effective for the 2013 submission. This does NOT mean that your control device needs to be replaced. The EPA recently changed their naming system which does not match all the options that are available on the MassDEP’s Source Registration forms. Therefore, the MassDEP is being forced to change the naming system in the Source Registration program. If your facility’s air pollution control device is not on the revised EPA list, the MassDEP will be sending you an e-mail listing your current control device and a list of similar names on the revised EPA list. The MassDEP is asking that you respond to their e-mail stating which revised name matches your air pollution control device. The MassDEP will then update your 2013 Source Registration to the revised name.
