PROPOSED RULE: Implementation of the 2015 National Ambient Air Quality Standards for Ozone: Nonattainment Area Classifications & State Implementation Plan Requirements @ WEBINAR
2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

Date: Wednesday, December 7, 2016
Time: 2:00 – 3:30 PM Eastern Time
Intended Audience: Regions, State, Local, and Tribal Air Agencies, communities, industry, environmental groups, and the general public

On November 2, 2016, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency proposed requirements that would apply to state, local, and tribal air agencies for implementing the 2015 National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for ground-level ozone. The EPA revised both the health-based and welfare-based standards for ozone on October 1, 2015. This proposed action largely retains and updates the implementing regulations that apply for the 2008 ozone NAAQS, for purposes of the 2015 ozone standards, which creates stability in the planning process. This action also proposes two options for revoking the 2008 ozone NAAQS. The EPA is also seeking comment on a number of additional topics, including: (1) managing emissions from wildfires and wildland prescribed fires; (2) transportation conformity and general conformity; (3) contingency measures; (4) international transport and background ozone; and (5) additional policies for achieving emissions reductions. This webinar is intended to provide highlights of the proposed rule and address clarifying questions. To download a copy of the proposed rule or for more information go to https://www.epa.gov/ozone-pollution/implementation-2015-national-ambient-air-quality-standards-naaqs-ozone-state.

How MPOs use CMAQ Funding for Alternative Fuel Vehicle and Infrastructure Projects @ WEBINAR
1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

There are many types of projects eligible for Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) Program funding. Hear from two Metropolitan Planning Organizations about using CMAQ funding for alternative fuel vehicle projects. Jim Stack from Genesee Transportation Council will describe partnering with a Clean Cities coalition to support the deployment of nearly 150 propane, compressed natural gas (CNG), and electric drive vehicles. By partnering with Genesee Region Clean Communities, the program benefited from a fuel neutral organization’s knowledge about the new technologies and relationships with the private sector. Jeff Sheffield from North Florida Transportation Planning Organization will talk about hosting the North Florida Clean Fuels Coalition and the importance of alternative fuel vehicles in their region. By utilizing CMAQ funding, they have installed electric vehicle charging stations, helped convert a county fleet to CNG, and purchased CNG conversion kits for sanitation trucks.
