The Ozone Transport Commission (OTC) has adopted a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) committing the signatory States to the development and proposal of a region-wide nitrogen oxides (NOx) emission reduction in 1999 and 20031. The OTC MOU requires reductions in ozone season NOx emissions from utility and large industrial combustion facilities, in order to further the effort to achieve the health-based National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) for ozone. The OTC also released the NOx Budget Model Rule to provide State regulatory agencies a common framework for the promulgation of State regulations. This document provides additional technical guidance and clarification on the emissions monitoring, data collection and reporting sections of the Model Rule. This executable file is approximately 70 pages in length and can be opened using WP 6.1.
