On November 25, 2014 (79 FR 70099), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published a final rulemaking action announcing the approval of West Virginia's request to redesignate to attainment the Martinsburg-Hagerstown, WV-MD nonattainment area for the 1997 annual PM2.5 NAAQS.
Need for Correction
As published, the final redesignation contains an error. EPA inadvertently added the word “Moderate” in the table for the 1997 annual PM2.5 NAAQS. The intent of the final rule was to redesignate the Area to attainment. Moderate is a classification for nonattainment areas. This action corrects the table of 40 CFR part 81 for West Virginia's 1997 annual PM2.5 NAAQS.Start List of Subjects
