EPA is proposing to approve revisions to the West Virginia State Implementation Plan (SIP), submitted by the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (WVDEP) on August 31, 2011.

In addition, EPA is proposing to approve these revisions and portions of other related submissions for the purpose of determining that West Virginia has met its statutory obligations with respect to the infrastructure requirements of the Clean Air Act (CAA) which relate to West Virginia's PSD permitting program and are necessary to implement, maintain, and enforce the 1997 PM2.5 and ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS), the 2006 PM2.5 NAAQS, and the 2008 lead and ozone NAAQS. EPA is proposing to approve these revisions in accordance with the requirements of the CAA.
