Area Designations for 2008 Lead Standards
|EPA completed lead designations in two rounds. In the first round, the EPA designated as "nonattainment" any area that violated the 2008 lead standards based on data from 2007-2009. The EPA took an additional year to make final designations decisions for all other areas of the country to allow additional lead air quality data to be collected and evaluated. In the second round, the EPA designated those remaining areas as meeting or not meeting the 2008 lead standards based on data from 2008-2010.
