Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; State of Nevada; PM-10; Determinations Regarding Attainment for the Truckee Meadows Nonattainment Area and Applicability of Certain Clean Air Act Requirements
Document Number: 2011-4376
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-02-28
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
EPA is proposing to make two separate and independent determinations regarding attainment for the Truckee Meadows PM-10 nonattainment area in Washoe County, Nevada (Truckee Meadows area). First, EPA is proposing to determine that, based on complete and quality-assured air monitoring data for 1999-2001, the Truckee Meadows area did not attain the 24-hour National Ambient Air Quality Standard (``NAAQS'') for particulate matter with an aerodynamic diameter less than or equal to a nominal 10 micrometers (``PM-10'') by the applicable attainment date of December 31, 2001. Second, EPA is proposing to determine that the Truckee Meadows area is currently attaining the PM-10 NAAQS, based upon complete, quality-assured PM-10 air quality monitoring data during the years 2007-2009. Preliminary data through June 2010 contained in EPA's Air Quality System (``AQS'') show that no exceedances of the 24-hour NAAQS have been recorded in the Truckee Meadows area. Because the Truckee Meadows area is currently attaining the PM-10 NAAQS, EPA is proposing to determine that the obligation to make submissions to meet certain Clean Air Act (``CAA'' or ``the Act'') requirements related to attainment are not applicable for as long as the area continues to attain the PM-10 NAAQS.
