Oakridge Requirements and Commitments in the Applicable SIP IV. Summary of Proposed Action V. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews I. Background for the Proposed Action On October 17, 2006, the EPA issued its final action to revise the PM2.5 NAAQS to establish revised 24-hour standards (71 FR 61144). In that action, we promulgated identical revised primary and secondary PM2.5 standards designed to protect public health and welfare that specified a 24-hour PM2.5 average concentration of 35 mg/m3. Specifically, the 2006 standards require that the 3-year average of the annual 98th percentile concentration may not exceed 35 mg/m3. On November 13, 2009, the EPA issued a final rule designating all areas throughout the country for the 2006 24hour PM2.5 NAAQS, effective December 14, 2009 (74 FR 58688). In that action, PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 the EPA designated Oakridge, Oregon and a small surrounding area as a nonattainment area (Oakridge NAA) based on monitor values at the Willamette Activity Center in Oakridge. As a result of this nonattainment area designation, Oregon is required to prepare and submit to the EPA a State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision to meet attainment plan requirements and to bring the Oakridge NAA into attainment for the 2006 24-hour PM2.5 NAAQS. The State submitted an attainment plan submission for the Oakridge NAA to the EPA by letter dated December 12, 2012 (2012 Oakridge Plan). On January 4, 2013, the D.C. Circuit Court issued a decision in NRDC v. EPA, 706 F.3d 428, holding that the EPA erred in implementing the 1997 PM2.5 NAAQS only pursuant to the provisions of subpart 1 of the Act, rather than the particulate matter specific provisions of subpart 4 of Part D of Title I (subpart 4). The Court did not vacate the 2007 PM2.5 Implementation Rule for the 1997 PM2.5 NAAQS, but remanded it to the EPA with instructions to promulgate a new implementation rule for the PM2.5 NAAQS in accordance with the requirements of both subpart 1 and subpart 4. On June 6, 2013, consistent with the Court’s remand decision, the EPA withdrew its March 2012 Implementation Guidance recommending that states rely on the 2007 PM2.5 Implementation Rule for development of attainment plans for the 2006 24-hour PM2.5 NAAQS. Thus, the EPA withdrew the guidance it initially provided to states for meeting attainment plan requirements for purposes of areas designated nonattainment for the 2006 24-hour PM2.5 NAAQS, such as the Oakridge NAA. On June 2, 2014, in response to the NRDC decision that it implement the PM2.5 NAAQS pursuant to subpart 4, the EPA promulgated the ‘‘PM2.5 Subpart 4 Nonattainment Classification and Deadline Rule’’ (79 FR 31566). In that action, the EPA classified all areas currently designated nonattainment for both the 1997 and 2006 PM2.5 NAAQS as ‘‘Moderate’’ nonattainment areas. That rule also provided guidance to states on how to meet the subpart 4 requirements and set a deadline of December 31, 2014 for states to submit any revisions to previously submitted attainment plan submissions, as necessary to meet subpart 4 requirements. Thus, the EPA classified the Oakridge NAA as a Moderate nonattainment area for the 2006 24-hour PM2.5 NAAQS and provided an E:\FR\FM\18MYP1.SGM 18MYP1
