Victoria County 1997 Eight-Hour Ozone Maintenance Plan
On March 7, 2007, the commission adopted the following SIP revision for Victoria County:
- Eight-Hour Ozone Maintenance Plan for the Victoria County Ozone Attainment Area (2006-023-SIP-NR)

- Appendix A: Development and Production of On-Road Mobile Source Emissions Inventories for Victoria County: 2002, 2004, 2010, and 2014 (available upon request)
- Appendix B: City of Victoria Voluntary Control Measures
In early 2009, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency informed the TCEQ that to approval of the Victoria County Eight-Hour Ozone Maintenance Plan would require revision of the contingency plan to include an enforceable commitment to implement contingency measures once triggered.
On July 28, 2010, the commission adopted the following SIP revision for Victoria County:
- Contingency Plan Revision for the 1997 Eight-Hour Ozone Maintenance Plan for the Victoria County Ozone Attainment Area (2009-033-SIP-NR)
The revised contingency plan identifies rules that the TCEQ may implement upon future violation of the 1997 eight-hour ozone NAAQS. Included in the list are: the Texas Low Emission Diesel (TxLED)–compliant marine-diesel rule (Title 30, Texas Administrative Code, Chapter 114), emission controls for volatile organic compounds from storage tanks (Chapter 115), and controls for nitrogen oxides from combustion engines (Chapter 117).
On August 8, 2013, the EPA published direct final approval (78 FR 48318).
