Overview

Credit: 2 PDH

Length: 25 pages

December 1970 marks two important events regarding air pollution law in the United States: [1] creation of the US Environmental Protection Agency and [2] enactment of the Clean Air Act (CAA). The CAA was a major shift in the federal government's role in air pollution control. The Act authorized the development of comprehensive federal & state regulations to limit emissions from both mobile and stationary (i.e. industrial) sources. Four major regulatory programs affecting stationary sources were initiated: National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS), State Implementation Plans (SIPs), New Source Performance Standards (NSPS), and National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPs).

Major amendments were added to the CAA in 1977. These Amendments provided for Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) of air quality in areas attaining the NAAQS. The 1977 Amendments also contained requirements pertaining to sources in in geographic areas that fail to meet NAAQS – areas called non-attainment areas.

Amendments were again passed in 1990 that substantially increased the authority and responsibility of the federal government. New regulatory programs were authorized for control of acid deposition (acid rain) and for the issuance of stationary source operating permits. NESHAPs were incorporated into a greatly expanded program for controlling toxic air pollutants. The provisions for attainment and maintenance of NAAQS were substantially modified and expanded. Other revisions included provisions regarding stratospheric ozone protection, increased enforcement authority, and expanded research programs.

This course is intended for environmental engineers who are responsible for compliance with air pollution laws in either the private or public sector, with particular focus on stationary (i.e. industrial) sources.
