(a) Approval. The Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (LDEQ) submitted redesignation requests and maintenance plans for the areas of Beauregard, Lafourche, and St. Mary Parishes on June 14, 1993. Redesignation requests and maintenance plans were submitted for the areas of Grant and Lafayette on May 25, 1993. The EPA deemed these requests complete on September 10, 1993. Several approvability issues existed, however. The LDEQ addressed these approvability issues in supplemental ozone redesignation requests and revised maintenance plans.
