Abstract:
These are documents on a work plan that outlines a schedule of specific activities that EPA's Office of Air and Radiation and Office of Water are committing to undertake using the authorities of both the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act. This collaborative effort will help to coordinate these Offices' programs and to track EPA's progress in assessing and reducing, as needed, atmospheric deposition of toxics and nitrogen to all waterbodies in the United States. The pollutants targeted are the same as the Great Waters Program pollutants, of concern including air toxics and nitrogen. The general strategy is: continue to reduce the national loadings of pollutants of concern through implementation of existing Clean Air Act rules and promulgation of additional regulations on emissions sources; work with states to support the development and implementation of atmospheric deposition focused TMDLs; improve and expand the monitoring network for pollutants, emissions inventories and our modeling abilities; and communicate about air deposition issues with a variety of audiences.
