- 2002 and 2005 Rate of Progress Plan
- In December 2001, the reclassification of the San Joaquin Valley Air Basin (SJVAB) to severe nonattainment for the One-Hour Ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standard became final. The reclassification resulted from the failure of the SJVAB to attain the Standard by November 15, 1999 as required for serious nonattainment areas. Under the severe classification, the District is required to prepare plans which demonstrate attainment of the standard by November 15, 2005 and rate of progress plans (ROP)s that demonstrate that ozone precursors are reduced at a rate of three percent per year, averaged over three year periods. This plan fulfills the ROP requirements for 2002 and 2005. This plan does not address the requirement that the District demonstrate attainment of the standard.
