District Board of directors approved the plan on october 12, 2017.  SACRAMENTO REGIONAL 2008 NATIONAL AMBIENT AIR QUALITY STANDARD 8-HOUR OZONE ATTAINMENT AND REASONABLE FURTHER PROGRESS PLAN

The Placer County Air Pollution Control District (PCAPCD) will hold a public hearing to consider adoption of the Sacramento Regional 2008 National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) 8-Hour Ozone Attainment and Reasonable Further Progress Plan (Plan). The Plan geographically covers the Sacramento Federal Nonattainment Area (SFNA) which includes all of Sacramento and Yolo counties, and portions of Placer, El Dorado, Solano, and Sutter counties. Each SFNA air district will hold a separate public hearing to adopt this Plan.

The Plan documents how the region is meeting requirements under the Clean Air Act in demonstrating reasonable further progress and attainment of the 2008 NAAQS of 75 parts per billion. The Plan includes an updated emissions inventory, analyzes air quality trends and evaluates photochemical modeling results. This plan also establishes new motor vehicle emission budgets for transportation conformity purposes. In addition, the plan also documents the region’s reasonably available control measure (RACM) analysis and vehicle miles travelled (VMT) offset demonstration.

After the SFNA air districts adopt and California Air Resources Board (CARB) approve the plan, the Plan will be submitted to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) as a revision to the California State Implementation Plan (SIP). This Notice of Public Hearing and the Plan satisfies the requirements of the Clean Air Act Sections 110, 172, 176, 181, 182, and Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulation Part 51.

On Thursday, October 12, 2017, at their regular meeting beginning at 2:30 PM, the PCAPCD Board of Directors will hold a public hearing to receive comments and consider the adoption of the Plan. The hearing is to be held at the Placer County Board of Supervisors Chambers, 175 Fulweiler Avenue, Auburn, California.
