SIP Haze Planning Status Summary

Status of Regional Haze Plan Development, Including BART

The WRAP continues working on behalf of its 15 member states and tribes to facilitate and assist with the completion of the individual regional haze implementation plans across the West during 2008-09. Through projects directed by WRAP Forums, Committees, and staff, regional technical analysis activities for haze plan development were completed during 2007. The status of the individual agencies’ BART Determinations and Regional Haze Planning efforts is summarized in the following table. The dates in the table are updated periodically, with the last update noted at the bottom of the table.

Last Update – January 22, 2010

*The States of AZ, NM, OR, UT, and WY submitted §309 Regional Haze SIPs in December 2003, and are awaiting EPA actions to approve them based on states’ responses to issues EPA raised during the review process. Oregon has since elected to submit a §308 SIP. The other four §309 states must also submit revisions to the parts of their submitted SIPs pertaining to SO2 milestones and demonstration that the milestones achieve greater SO2 emission reductions than application of BART controls on affected sources along with other requirements outlined in the 2006 revised RHR. Utah does not need to submit a §309(g) plan. All of its Class I areas are among the 16 areas addressed in the §309 SIP submitted in 2003.
