"Section 185A" was previously called "Transitional". Dates in parenthesis are when the ozone standard was to have been be met. Section 185A and incomplete data areas are not included.

On July 10, 1998 (63 FR 37258), EPA published the final rule redesignating the San Francisco Bay Area to nonattainment with the federal 1-hour ozone NAAQS. EPA did not assign the Bay Area a classification. Then on July 22, 1999 (64 FR 39416) EPA published a final rule assigning the area a nonattainment classification on moderate for purposes of funding appropriation under the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA 21), Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality improvement Program (CMAQ) only.

The former 1-hour ozone designations and classifications as of June 15, 2004, are being retained in subpart C of Part 81 for purposes of the anti backsliding provisions of 40 CFR 51.905. 40 CFR 51.905(c) references subpart C of part 81 for the areas affected by the anti-backsliding regulation.
