Document Description
The South Coast Air Basin (Basin) is classified as an Extreme nonattainment area for the 1997 8-hour ozone national ambient air quality standard (NAAQS), with an attainment date of June 15, 2024. The attainment strategy in the 2016 Air Quality Management Plan (2016 AQMP) includes both defined measures as well as "further deployment of cleaner technologies" measures, as allowed under the federal Clean Air Act (CAA) section 182(e)(5). Under CAA requirements, development and adoption of CAA section 182(e)( 5) contingency measures are required no later than three years before the attainment date. The Contingency Measure Plan represents a joint strategy by South Coast AQMD and California Air Resources Board (CARB) for addressing the contingency measure requirements of CAA section 182(e)( 5) for the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS for the Basin. The Contingency Measure Plan includes: 1) newly identified emission reduction strategies and innovative new measures; 2) additional incentive funding to transition to the cleanest available technologies; and 3) significant federal action and/or funding to achieve the required reductions from sources under federal responsibility.
