PM-10 Contingency Measures



Regional Office / Program

Case Overview

This deadline suit seeks to compel EPA to act on the contingency measures in the San Joaquin Valley Air District’s PM-10 plan. Contingency measures are required under the federal Clean Air Act as a backstop to protect public health should the Valley fail to meet major milestones in cleaning up particulate matter pollution. The EPA has yet to approve a set of contingency measures for the Valley and the plan is long overdue.
