Re: Project XL Proposal: Ozone Reduction in the Greater Wake County Area

Dear Mr. Kessler:

Enclosed for EPA's consideration is a joint proposal by Weyerhaeuser Company and Carolina Power and Light Company to participate in Project XL at their operations near Moncure, North Carolina. This proposal clearly meets EPA approval criteria and we look forward to your consideration of this proposal.

Weyerhaeuser's Moncure facility manufactures particle board and medium density fiberboard. Carolina Power and Light's Cape Fear facility is a coal fired electric generating facility. This proposal incorporates the commitment of both companies to achieve a superior environmental result through the cooperative agreement which will reduce ozone formation in the greater Wake County area. In particular, the proposal would result in better air quality in the area than the conventional regulatory approach.

We are prepared to present to EPA more detailed information about this proposal as questions arise. We would also invite you to contact Mr. Alan Klimek of the Air Quality Section of the Division of Environmental Management of the North Carolina Department of Health and Natural Resources for additional information regarding these facilities.

If you have any further questions please contact Donald R. van der Vaart, Supervisor - Environmental Programs, Air, of Carolina Power and Light, at (919) 546-6706 or Jerry Coker, Area Environmental Manager of Weyerhaeuser, at (919) 793-8862.
