EPA is correcting the error in the Federal Register notice, published on April 9, 2007 (72 FR 17550), which announced the adequacy finding for the 2006 MVEBs. In that notice on page 17550, in the third column, the table labeled “Atlanta 8-Hour Ozone MVEBs,” EPA inadvertently identified the NOX MVEB as 172.27 tpd and the VOC MVEB as 306.75 tpd. This action corrects that error. As announced in EPA's January 24, 2007, letter from Beverly Banister, Director of the Air, Pesticides and Toxics Management Division, to Heather Abrams, Chief of EPD's Air Protection Branch, the correct 2006 MVEBs for the Atlanta 8-Hour Ozone Area, as established by the Early Progress Plan, are provided in the following table.
