Victoria: Latest Ozone Planning Activities
Contingency Plan Revision (2010)
In early 2009, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 6 office informed the TCEQ that to approve the 2007 Victoria County Eight-Hour Ozone Maintenance Plan SIP Revision the contingency plan must be revised to contain an enforceable commitment to adopt and implement the contingency measures once triggered.
On July 28, 2010, the commission adopted the following SIP revision for the Victoria County attainment area for the 1997 eight-hour ozone standard:
- Executive Summary Memo
- Contingency Plan Revision to the 1997 Eight-Hour Ozone Maintenance Plan for the Victoria County Ozone Attainment Area SIP (2009-033-SIP-NR)
This SIP revision contains an amended contingency measures section of the 2007 Victoria Maintenance Plan SIP Revision, as required by EPA guidance. The amended contingency measure section provides a list of rules the TCEQ may adopt and implement upon violation of the 1997 eight-hour ozone standard; the rules considered include, but are not limited to: 30 Texas Administrative Code Chapter 114 rule for Texas Low Emission Diesel; Chapter 115 volatile organic compound rules; and Chapter 117 nitrogen oxides rule.
