Abstract:
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is issuing proposed planning guidance for public comment for States to use in meeting EPA's revised air quality standards for ground-level ozone (smog) and particulate matter.

EPA is making the guidance available for 30-days comment, which will begin on the date EPA publishes a notice of availability in the Federal Register. EPA will publish the notice shortly.

The guidance addresses four major areas:

  • It lays out a scheme for "classifying" areas that do not meet the ozone or particulate matter standards, including designation and classification dates, anticipated State implementation plan due dates and anticipated attainment dates.
  • It clarifies the requirement that States adopt reasonably available control measures into ozone and particulate matter State implementation plans.
  • It provides details on the State implementation plan requirements for ozone "transitional" nonattainment areas and PM10 nonattainment areas.
  • It provides initial guidance on the "reasonable further progress" requirement for ozone nonattainment areas classified as "traditional."
