[FR Doc. 2017–04892 Filed 3–10–17; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–13–P DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY Federal Energy Regulatory Commission 18 CFR Part 12 Safety of Water Power Projects and Project Works The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is taking final action to approve a state implementation plan (SIP) revision submitted by the State of California to meet Clean Air Act (CAA or ‘‘Act’’) requirements applicable to the Owens Valley PM10 nonattainment area (NA). The Owens Valley PM10 NA is classified as a ‘‘Serious’’ nonattainment area for the national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) for particulate matter of ten microns or less (PM10). The submitted SIP revision is the ‘‘Great Basin Unified Air Pollution Control District 2016 Owens Valley Planning Area PM10 State Implementation Plan’’ (‘‘2016 PM10 Plan’’ or ‘‘Plan’’). The State’s obligation to submit the 2016 PM10 Plan was triggered by the EPA’s 2007 finding that the Owens Valley PM10 NA had failed to meet its December 31, 2006, deadline to attain the PM10 NAAQS. The CAA requires a Serious PM10 nonattainment area that fails to meet its attainment deadline to submit a plan providing for attainment of the PM10 NAAQS and for an annual reduction in PM10 emissions of not less than five percent until attainment of the PM10 NAAQS. The EPA is approving the 2016 PM10 Plan because it meets all relevant statutory and regulatory requirements. SUMMARY: DATES: This rule is effective on April 12, 2017.

Summary of Proposed Action On December 12, 2016, the EPA proposed to approve the Owens Valley 2016 PM10 Plan, which the State of California submitted on June 9, 2016, as meeting all relevant statutory and regulatory requirements under the CAA.1 As discussed in our proposed rule, the Owens Valley PM10 NA is a Serious PM10 nonattainment area that is located in the southern portion of the Owens Valley in Inyo County, California.2 California’s obligation to submit the 2016 PM10 Plan was triggered by the EPA’s June 6, 2007 finding that the Owens Valley PM10 NA had failed to meet its December 31, 2006 deadline to attain the PM10 NAAQS.3 The CAA requires a Serious PM10 NA that fails to meet its attainment deadline to submit a plan providing for attainment of the PM10 NAAQS and for an annual emission reduction in PM10 or PM10 precursors of not less than five percent per year until attainment. Our December 12, 2016 proposed rule provides the background and rationale for this action. II. Public Comments and the EPA’s Response to Comments The EPA provided a 30-day public comment period on our proposed action. The comment period ended on January 11, 2017. We received two public comment letters: One from the Timbisha Shoshone Tribe and one from the Big Pine Paiute Tribe of the Owens Valley. The submitted comment letters, which we have summarized and responded to below, are in our docket. Comment 1: The Timbisha Shoshone Tribe expressed its support for our approval of the 2016 PM10 Plan. Response 1: The EPA appreciates the Timbisha Shoshone Tribe’s support of our approval.
