Redesignation Request & Maintenance Plan for the 1997 Annual and 2006 24-Hour PM2.5 NAAQS Proposal

New York-Northern New Jersey-Long Island, NY-NJ-CT Nonattainment Area

The Department believes it has addressed and satisfied all the criteria of section 107(d)(3)(E) of the CAA for the EPA redesignation of a nonattainment area to attainment. This SIP submittal specifically demonstrates attainment of the NAAQS, with monitored design values below the annual and 24-hour levels since the 2007-2009 time period. It also details the regulations and control requirements that have been adopted to reduce ambient concentrations, and provides for continued maintenance of the NAAQS. Because the area is currently achieving the annual and 24-hour standards, and emissions are projected to decrease further as a result of state and federal regulations, it stands to reason that continued attainment can be assured.

Based on fulfillment of the CAA section 107(d)(3)(E) criteria, the Department is formally requesting that EPA redesignate the New York portion of the NY-NJ-CT PM2.5 nonattainment area to attainment for the 1997 annual and 2006 24-hour PM2.5 NAAQS.
