2017 PM Plans

2017 PM2.5 Plans

The District is in the process of developing an attainment strategy that addresses the following PM2.5 standards under the federal Clean Air Act:

The District is undergoing a robust public process to develop an attainment strategy to address multiple PM2.5 standards. This robust process includes conducting multiple workshops and reconvening the Public Advisory Workgroup (PAW) formed under direction from the District’s Governing Board, with appointments by the Executive Director/Air Pollution Control Officer. The PAW committee consists of representatives from regulated entities (industry, farms, dairy families and municipalities), community advocates, and advisors from EPA and ARB. The PAW committee meetings will be open to the public.

2017 PM10 Maintenance Plan

In October 2006, EPA issued a Final Rule determining that the San Joaquin Valley attained the federal PM10 standard. The District subsequently adopted a maintenance plan (2007 PM10 Maintenance Plan) to provide for the maintenance of the standard for the ten-year period of 2010 through 2019 and request redesignation of the Valley from Serious nonattainment to attainment. In December 2008, EPA redesignated the Valley to attainment of the federal PM10 standard. This was a historic achievement representing years of hard work by individuals, industry, agriculture, Valley communities, and the District. As required by federal Clean Air Act Section 175A(b), the District is in the process of developing the 2017 PM10 Maintenance Plan to demonstrate the maintenance of the standard for an additional ten-year period of 2020 through 2029.
