How Clean is Clean Enough? A Look at EPA's Upcoming Ozone Regulations

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is preparing to release a new National Ambient Air Quality Standard for ground-level ozone. Based on recommendations from EPA’s science advisers and staff, the EPA is expected to announce a more stringent standard, likely in the range of 70 to 60 parts per billion, down from the 2008 standard of 75 parts per billion. A more strict ozone requirement could be a challenge for some states and counties to attain, generating areas of noncompliance around the U.S. accompanied by a hefty price tag. This CSG eCademy session offers federal, state and industry perspectives on the complexity of meeting lower ozone emission standards and the associated costs.
