This document includes an attainment demonstration and formal request to the United States Environmental Agency to redesignate the San Manuel, Arizona area, a nonattainment area for sulfur dioxide (SO2), to attainment for the health-based 24-hour average and annual average SO2 National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). It summarizes the progress of the area in attaining the SO2 standard, demonstrates that all Clean Air Act requirements for attainment have been adopted, and includes a maintenance plan to assure continued attainment after redesignation.

Description

In a rule published July 2, 2002, EPA found the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality’s "Plan for Attainment of the 24-Hour PM10 Standard – Maricopa County PM10 Nonattainment Area" (May 1997), inadequate to achieve attainment of the 24-hour National Ambient Air Quality Standards for particulate matter 10 microns or fewer

In a rule published July 2, 2002, EPA found the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality’s "Plan for Attainment of the 24-Hour PM10 Standard – Maricopa County PM10 Nonattainment Area" (May 1997), inadequate to achieve attainment of the 24-hour National Ambient Air Quality Standards for particulate matter 10 microns or fewer in aerodynamic diameter (PM10) at the Salt River monitoring site. The 1997 ADEQ SIP revision included attainment and Reasonable Further Progress demonstrations for the 24-hour NAAQS at the Salt River air quality monitoring site of the Maricopa County PM10 Serious Nonattainment Area, as well as at three other monitoring sites in the Phoenix area, - the Maryvale, Gilbert, and West Chandler sites. On August 4, 1997, EPA approved ADEQ’s attainment and RFP demonstrations for the Salt River monitoring area, which showed that the 24-hour PM10 NAAQS would reach attainment in the area by May 1998. Due to continuing violations of the 24-hour PM10 NAAQS at the Salt River air quality monitoring site since May 1998, EPA subsequently required Arizona to submit a revision to correct SIP inadequacies. This document consists of Arizona’s revisions to the state implementation plan for the Maricopa County PM10 Serious Nonattainment Area as described by EPA in its Federal Register notice of disapproval.

The Clean Air Act states that an area designated as nonattainment due to a violation of the NAAQS may be redesignated to attainment if the State submits and EPA approves a plan demonstrating that permanent emission controls that resulted in attainment will remain in place. This plan demonstrates that all CAA requirements for attainment and maintenance have been met and summarizes the progress of the area in attaining the PM10 standard. This document includes a formal request to EPA to redesignate the Rillito, Arizona PM10 nonattainment area to attainment for the health-based 24-hour average PM10 NAAQS.

The Arizona State Implementation Plan describes the programs that the State will rely upon to make reasonable progress toward “preventing any future and … remedying any existing impairment of visibility” in the large parks and wilderness areas in Arizona and those in other states that may be affected by pollution

The Arizona State Implementation Plan describes the programs that the State will rely upon to make reasonable progress toward “preventing any future and … remedying any existing impairment of visibility” in the large parks and wilderness areas in Arizona and those in other states that may be affected by pollution generated in Arizona (Class I areas). The federal regional haze rules require states to develop and submit SIPs for improving visibility through the year 2018 that make reasonable progress toward achieving “natural visibility conditions” by the year 2064. This plan is designed to adopt the basic visibility program that addresses impairment of visibility that can be traced to older major industrial sources and implements recommendations adopted by the Grand Canyon Visibility Transport Commission in its 1996 report to EPA.

The Clean Air Act states that an area can be redesignated to attainment if specific conditions are met, such as attainment of federal air quality standards; approval of a state implementation plan and a maintenance plan; and permanent and enforceable improvements in air quality. This document demonstrates that all CAA requirements for attainment have been met, summarizes the progress of the area in attaining the PM10 standards, demonstrates that the Payson area qualifies for EPA’s Clean Data Policy and Limited Maintenance Plan option, and includes a maintenance plan to assure continued attainment for ten years after the redesignation. This document is a formal request to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to redesignate the Payson, Arizona PM10 nonattainment area to attainment of the health-based 24-hour average and annual average PM10 National Ambient Air Quality Standards.

Analyses included in this document show that ambient air quality measurements have remained below the NAAQS for PM10, and both the 24-hour average design value and annual average PM10 design value are below EPA allowable limits. This document also demonstrates that the emission reduction control measures responsible for the air quality improvement are both permanent and enforceable.

This document consists of the attainment demonstration, maintenance plan, and redesignation to attainment request for the Morenci Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) Nonattainment Area. The purpose of this document is to demonstrate how the area has met the National Ambient Air Quality Standards for SO2 and intends to maintain compliance with the NAAQS. Air quality standards are divided into two types: primary standards based on health effects and secondary standards based on environmental effects such as damage to property, plants, visibility, etc. Both standards are established by Environmental Protection Agency for criteria air pollutants such as sulfur dioxide.

Miami, Arizona, is a historic copper mining town in Gila County, 80 miles southeast of Phoenix and 112
miles northeast of Tucson. Miami’s sister city, Globe, lies four miles to the east. The Hayden/Miami
Nonattainment Area was designated for nonattainment of the particulate matter National Ambient Air
Quality Standard by operation of law following the Clean Air Act amendments of 1990. In March, 2007, EPA approved a boundary redesignation of the Hayden/Miami PM10 nonattainment area into two separate, but adjoining, PM10 nonattainment areas. Together, these two new PM10 nonattainment areas cover the same geographic area as the original Hayden/Miami PM10 nonattainment area. This plan demonstrates that all CAA requirements for attainment and maintenance have been met and summarizes the progress of the area in attaining the PM10 standard. This plan also summarizes and demonstrates that the MNA qualified for EPA’s Clean Data Policy and the Limited Maintenance Plan option.

This document consists of the attainment demonstration, maintenance plan, and redesignation to attainment request for the Douglas Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) Nonattainment Area. The purpose of this document is to demonstrate how the State of Arizona has met the National Ambient Air Quality Standards for SO2 and intends to maintain compliance with the NAAQS in the Douglas area. Air quality standards are divided into two types: primary standards based on health effects and secondary standards based on environmental effects such as damage to property, plants, visibility, etc. Both standards are established by EPA for criteria air pollutants such as sulfur dioxide.
