Weirton, West Virginia, PM10 maintenance plan
Posting:  November 2, 2004
Updated:  November 9, 2004

On November 9, 2004, EPA published a notice in the Federal Register that corrects an omission in the preamble language of the October 27, 2004, direct final rule that approves the redesignation of attainment and maintenance plan for the Weirton, West Virginia, PM10 nonattainment area.  This correction notice explains why PM10 motor vehicle emissions budgets, for purposes of transportation conformity, are not required to be part of the maintenance plan for the area.

On October 27, 2004, EPA published a proposed and direct final rule in the Federal Register approving a maintenance plan for the Weirton, West Virginia, PM-10 area.  EPA's adequacy review and an opportunity for public comment on the maintenance plan are concurrent.  This rule is effective on December 27, 2004, unless EPA receives written comments by November 26, 2004.  If adverse comments are received, EPA will publish a notice in the Federal Register withdrawing the rule and informing the public that the rule will not take effect.

How can I obtain a copy of the submission?
