Document Description
The 2022 AQMP is the planning document that sets forth policies and measures to achieve federal and state ambient air quality standards in the region. In accordance with the United States Environmental Protection Agency strengthening the National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) for ground-level 8-hour ozone in 2015, by lowering the primary and secondary 8-hour ozone standard to 70 parts per billion, the 2022 AQMP identifies control measures and strategies which have been developed to bring the South Coast Air Basin and the Coachella Valley into attainment with this standard by 2037. The 2022 AQMP control measures and strategies were developed to achieve this NAAQS by focusing on reducing emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx), which are precursors to the formation of ozone, and other air pollutants. The 2022 AQMP is comprised of the following control measures which address stationary point and area and mobile sources: 1) the South Coast AQMD’s Stationary and Mobile Source Control Measures; 2) control measures identified in the 2022 State Strategy for the State Implementation Plan by the California Air Resources Board; and 3) approved Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy and Transportation Control Measures provided by the Southern California Association of Governments. The 2022 AQMP also includes emission inventories, the most current air quality data, updated growth projections, new modeling techniques, demonstrations of compliance with state and federal Clean Air Act requirements, and an adoption and implementation schedule for the control strategies. The 2022 AQMP is designed to protect and improve public health for those living, working, and visiting the region within South Coast AQMD’s jurisdiction. The 2022 AQMP is estimated to reduce NOx emissions by approximately 124 tons per day beyond implementation of existing regulations. The Final Program EIR for the 2022 AQMP identified the following environmental topic areas would have significant and unavoidable adverse impacts: 1) air quality during construction; 2) energy due to increased electricity, natural gas, and hydrogen demand; 3) hazards and hazardous materials due to accidental release of ammonia, natural gas via pipeline, and liquified natural gas via on-road trucks; 4) hydrology (water demand and water supply) and water quality; 5) construction noise and vibration at roadways; and 6) solid and hazardous waste from construction and early retirement of equipment.
