Description: 

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to approve a submission by the State of North Carolina, through the Department of Air Quality (DAQ), on April 23, 2021, to redesignate the Brunswick County, North Carolina, unclassifiable area (hereinafter referred to as the ``Brunswick County Area'' or ``Area'') to attainment/unclassifiable for the 2010 1-hour primary sulfur dioxide (SO<INF>2</INF>) national ambient air quality standard (hereinafter referred to as the ``2010 SO<INF>2</INF> 1-hour NAAQS''). Because EPA now has sufficient information to determine that the Brunswick County Area is attaining the 2010 1-hour SO<INF>2</INF> national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS), the Agency is proposing to approve the State's redesignation request, thereby redesignating the Area from unclassifiable to attainment/unclassifiable for the 2010 1-hour SO<INF>2</INF> NAAQS.
