TIF4.1: Use a source control approach to assess and regulate local sources of air pollution.
Summarize accomplishments from:
Regional Priority Approach Description
Use a source control approach to assess and regulate local sources of air pollution.
Desired Outcome - Reduce air deposition from stationary air pollution sources.
Policy Needs - Explore opportunities to adapt state air quality policy to better recognize and regulate emissions that contribute to water-quality problems. And, explore possibilities to change state air quality regulatory guidance on monitoring thresholds, and consider cumulative impacts.
- Implement community-based air quality monitoring.
- Conduct research.
- Assess the impacts from changing monitoring thresholds and cumulative impacts.
Proposal Guidance - The SI Advisory Team wanted to note the significant environmental justice implications of stationary sources regarding underrepresented or disadvantaged communities disproportionately bearing the burdens of industrial air pollution.
Local Context - Local context provides additional specificity on how a Regional Priority approach should be implemented in each local area; examples include sequencing, partners to consider, and critical areas. Local context for this Regional Priority approach is available here.
