Background Ground-level ozone is formed when nitrogen oxides (NOX) and volatile organic compounds (VOC) react in the presence of sunlight. Referred to as ozone precursors, these two pollutants are emitted by many types of pollution sources, including motor vehicles, power plants, industrial facilities, and area wide sources, such as consumer products and lawn and garden equipment. Scientific evidence indicates that adverse public health effects occur following a person’s exposure to ozone. These effects are more pronounced in children and adults with lung disease. Breathing air containing ozone can reduce lung function and inflame airways, which can increase respiratory symptoms and aggravate asthma or other lung diseases. In 1979, in response to this scientific PO 00000 Frm 00038 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 evidence, EPA promulgated the first ozone NAAQS, the 0.12 part per million (ppm) 1-hour ozone NAAQS. See 44 FR 8202 (February 8, 1979). EPA had previously promulgated a NAAQS for total photochemical oxidants. On July 18, 1997, EPA promulgated a revised ozone NAAQS of 0.08 ppm, averaged over eight hours. 62 FR 38855. This standard was determined to be more protective of public health than the previous 1979 1-hour ozone standard. In 2008, EPA revised the 8hour ozone NAAQS from 0.08 to 0.075 ppm. See 73 FR 16436 (March 27, 2008). On May 21, 2012, the AllentownBethlehem-Easton, Lancaster, Pittsburgh-Beaver Valley, Reading, and Philadelphia-Wilmington-Atlantic City areas were designated as marginal nonattainment for the more stringent 2008 8-hour ozone NAAQS. 77 FR 30088. The Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton nonattainment area is comprised of Carbon, Lehigh, and Northampton Counties, all in Pennsylvania. Lancaster and Reading are single-county nonattainment areas, comprised of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania and Berks County, Pennsylvania, respectively. The Pittsburgh-Beaver Valley nonattainment area is comprised of Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Fayette, Washington, and Westmoreland Counties, all in Pennsylvania. The Philadelphia-Wilmington-Atlantic City nonattainment areas includes Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia Counties in Pennsylvania, plus counties in Delaware, Maryland, and New Jersey. Under section 172(c)(3) of the CAA, Pennsylvania is required to submit comprehensive, accurate, and current inventories of actual emissions from all sources of the relevant pollutants in its marginal nonattainment areas, i.e., the Allentown-BethlehemEaston, Lancaster, Pittsburgh-Beaver Valley, and Reading nonattainment areas, and the Pennsylvania portion of the Philadelphia-Wilmington-Atlantic City nonattainment area. On October 1, 2015, EPA strengthened the ground-level ozone NAAQS to 0.070 ppm, based on extensive scientific evidence about ozone’s effects on public health and welfare. See 80 FR 65292 (October 26, 2015). As required by section 107(d) of the CAA, EPA intends to complete the initial designation process within two years of promulgation of the 2015 ozone NAAQS, i.e., no later than October 1, 2017. This rulemaking does not address the 2015 ozone NAAQS. E:\FR\FM\26APR1.SGM 26APR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The California Department of Transportation 
has requested a temporary change to the operation of the Highway 160 
drawbridge, mile 0.1, over Three Mile Slough, at Rio Vista, CA. The 
drawbridge navigation span provides 12 feet vertical clearance above 
Mean High Water in the closed-to-navigation position. In accordance 
with 33 CFR 117.5, the draw opens on signal. Navigation on the waterway 
is commercial, search and rescue, law enforcement, and recreational.
    The drawbridge will be secured in the closed-to-navigation position 
from 12:01 a.m. on April 18, 2016 to 11:59 p.m. on April 30, 2016, to 
allow the bridge owner to complete the necessary sand blasting and 
painting rehabilitation after unforeseen events have caused project 
delays. A containment scaffolding system has been installed below low 
steel of the entire length of the bridge structure, reducing vertical 
clearance for navigation by not more than 4 feet, and is lighted at 
night with red lights. This temporary deviation has been coordinated 
with the waterway users. No objections to the proposed temporary 
deviation were raised.
    Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed position may 
do so at anytime. The bridge will not be able to open for emergencies. 
The confluence of the San Joaquin and Sacramento rivers can be used as 
an alternate route for vessels unable to pass through the bridge in the 
closed position. The Coast Guard will also inform waterway users 
through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners of the change in 
operating schedule for the bridge so that vessel operators can arrange 
their

transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation.
    In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to 
its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the effective 
period of this temporary deviation. This deviation from the operating 
regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35.
