Summary of Eugene-Springfield PM-10 Attainment Plan
The area within the Eugene-Springfield Urban Growth Boundary was designated nonattainment for PM10 and classified as moderate upon enactment of the Clean Air Act Amendments in 1990.
Oregon submitted a PM10 attainment plan on November 15, 1991, and EPA approved the plan on August 24, 1994 (59 FR 43483 (PDF)(7 pp, 1 MB, About PDF)).
On November 5, 1999, Oregon submitted a complete rule renumbering and relabeling package to EPA for approval in the SIP. On January 22, 2003, EPA approved the recodified version of Oregon's rules to remove and replace the outdated numbering system (68 FR 2891 (PDF)(19 pp, 204 K)). The following list refers to the currently approved SIP rules.
The plan relies on control strategies needed to assure attainment of the PM10 National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). The strategy focuses on control of residential wood combustion, backyard burning, and unpaved roads. Additional reductions are expected from statewide efforts to reduce slash burning smoke.
