Proposed Modifications to the
Draft 2007 Air Quality Management Plan

The 2007 Air Quality Management Plan (AQMP) will be a regional and multi-agency effort (South Coast Air Quality Management District Governing Board, California Air Resources Board, Southern California Association of Governments and US Environmental Protection Agency).  State and federal planning requirements will include developing control strategies, attainment demonstration, reasonable further progress, and maintenance plans.

The SCAQMD, has scheduled a series of public workshops and regional hearings to discuss the proposed modifications to the draft 2007 AQMP. The proposed modifications to the Draft 2007 AQMP can be downloaded from the links below and are available as Acrobat files (PDF). Dates, times and locations for the workshops and hearings can be found through the following link: Public Workshops and Regional Hearings. The Public Workshop presentation can found below.

A Draft Socioeconomic Report was prepared to evaluate cost and benefit of clean air and their impact on the local economy from implementing the 2007 AQMP.

The 2007 AQMP also incorporates significant new scientific data, primarily in the form of updated emissions inventories, ambient measurements, new meteorological episodes and new air quality modeling tools. In accordance with the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act, potential environmental impacts to the proposed modifications to the Draft 2007 AQMP were analyzed in a Draft Program Environmental Impact Report which was released on March 2, 2007 for a 45-day public review and comment period ending April 17, 2007.



On June 5 and 6, 2006, an Air Quality Summit was attended by 125 experts from a variety of areas in order to solicit new and innovative concepts in an open forum.

Air Quality Summit

There is an Advisory Group that meets monthly during the development of the 2007 AQMP to review the overall aspects of a draft air quality management plan and to make recommendations concerning emission inventories, modeling, control measures, and socioeconomic impacts.
