Chapter 2, Ambient Standards, Section 6, Ambient standards for ozone, will be updated to include the latest ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standards. Additional updates to Chapter 3, General Emission Standards, Section 3, Emission standards for nitrogen oxides, involve a minor revision correcting an inconsistency regarding internal combustion engines. Additional updates to Chapter 5, National Emission Standards, Section 2, New source performance standards, involve incorporating 40 CFR part 60, subparts OOOO, OOOOa and TTTT into the WAQSR by reference from the CFR. Additional updates to Chapter 6, Permitting Requirements, Section 3, Operating permits and Chapter 7, Monitoring Regulations, Section 3, Compliance assurance monitoring, involve proposed revisions reflecting the Supreme Court's decision in UARG v. EPA, 134 S. Ct. 2427 (2014).

The Division contact information will be updated in Chapters 3, 4, 5, and 11. Chapter 2, Sections 2 and 12, Chapter 3, Section 9, Chapter 6, Sections 4 and 14, and Chapter 8, Section 10 involve revisions to the State Implementation Plan (SIP). The Division will submit these SIP revisions to the Environmental Protection Agency.
