assignment
Assignment
  • Prepare a comprehensive project plan for 2018 regional haze SIPs
  • Identify
    • Steps
    • Timeline
    • Resources
background
Background
  • Next round of Regional Haze SIPs are due in 2018
  • Workgroup meeting every 2 weeks since August
    • Identify the regional technical work and associated policyissues
  • Work products
    • Overview flow chart (completed)
    • Excel Timeline (completed)
    • Narrative plan (in progress)
technical work
Technical Work
  • Reevaluate/recalculate natural conditions
  • Reasonable progress analysis similar to 5-year progress reports
  • Sector emission inventories for baseline, 2018, 2028
    • Need consistency between states and years to compare
  • Special emission inventory studies
    • Oil and Gas
    • Canada and Mexico
    • Marine/Offshore/Global
    • Dust
    • Wildfire average
    • Ammonia
  • Regional modeling analyses
    • Meteorological, emission, dispersion and chemistry
  • Four-factor analysis for source categories

 Must haves,  Nice to haves

timeline overview
Timeline Overview
  • *General guidance from EPA to cover
  • Developing how to develop long-term strategy “post-BART”
  • Integrating NAAQS planning with RH planning
  • Clarification about controllable/non-controllable sources, e.g., fire
core issues
Core Issues
  • Simplify Progress Report Requirements
    • not as SIP revision
  • Natural Conditions and Reasonable Progress Goals
  • Long-term Strategies after BART
    • 4-Factor Analysis
  • Integrate Planning
    • relationship with NAAQS planning
  • Consideration of visitation
funding
Funding
  • 2000-2007 WRAP funding = $23.1 M
  • 2003-2006 WRAP expenditures
    • 80% technical and related policy work
    • 20% for staff, travel, meetings, calls, overhead
  • Expect can do it for much less this time
    • Not yet sure exactly how much is needed
    • May need to evaluate what can be done with given funding levels

*Minimum Regional Costs to Develop 2018 Haze Plans

policy and funding issues
Policy and Funding Issues
  • Uncertainty of EPA actions – what and when
    • Rule revisions and/or guidance
    • Responses to Core Issues presented in August
  • Funding?
    • How will budget affect work plan
next steps
Next Steps
  • For timeline workgroup
    • Complete plan in next few months
    • Review funding available and revise plan as needed
  • For regional analysis work
    • Decide if region will reconsider natural conditions
    • Immediately start emission inventories and special studies
    • In absence of EPA guidance, develop approach for 4-factor analysis “beyond BART,” and NAAQS integration
      • Propose several small work groups to address specific issues
        • Natural conditions
        • 4-factor analysis post-BART
        • NAAQS integration
