Non Attainment Memos

The following are brief one line descriptions of the Non Attainment memos that exist in a compendium of EPA policy and guidance documents called the New Source Review: Prevention of Significant Deterioration and Nonattainment Area Guidance Notebook. Clicking on a description will load the abstract file. The abstract file contains a brief synopsis of the memo. From there you may either view the entire document on line or download the entire document in PDF format. A number will appear at the upper left hand side of page 1 of each document. This number corresponds to the hardcopy document number in the Guidance Notebook. You will also find in each abstract, other document numbers which indicate other sections of the Guidance Notebook (by NSR topic areas) in which that same document is abstracted. Documents for a specific topic area can be found by using the ATTNWEB Search Page.

New documents and abstracts are no longer placed here but are now located in the Uncategorized Policy @ Guidance Docs site. The memos found here are those that have also been provided in the published PSD Guidance Workbook.
