Air Quality Management Plan (AQMP)

The Air Quality Management Plan (AQMP or Plan) is a regional blueprint for achieving air quality standards and healthful air. The 2022 AQMP will represent a comprehensive analysis of emissions, meteorology, regional air quality modeling, regional growth projections, and the impact of existing and proposed control measures.

On October 1, 2015, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) strengthened the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for ground-level ozone, lowering the primary and secondary ozone standard levels to 70 parts per billion (ppb). The South Coast Air Basin is classified as an “extreme” non-attainment area and the Coachella Valley is classified as a “severe-15” non-attainment area for the 2015 Ozone NAAQS. The 2022 AQMP will be developed to address the requirements for meeting this standard. To support the development of control measures for the 2022 AQMP, the following working groups have been established which are open to all interested parties:

Nonattainment New Source Review and Clean Fuels for Boilers

Emissions Statement

Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) Demonstration
