-----------------------------------------------------------------------

attainment the West Virginia portion of the Martinsburg-Hagerstown, WV-
MD nonattainment area for the 1997 annual fine particulate matter 
(PM2.5) national ambient air quality standard (NAAQS), which

email at [email protected]

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On November 25, 2014 (79 FR 70099), the 
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published a final rulemaking 
action announcing the approval of West Virginia's request to 
redesignate to attainment the Martinsburg-Hagerstown, WV-MD 
nonattainment area for the 1997 annual PM2.5 NAAQS.

Need for Correction

    As published, the final redesignation contains an error. EPA 
inadvertently added the word ``Moderate'' in the table for the 1997 
annual PM2.5 NAAQS. The intent of the final rule was to 
redesignate the Area to attainment. Moderate is a classification for 
nonattainment areas. This action corrects the table of 40 CFR part 81 
for West Virginia's 1997 annual PM2.5 NAAQS.
