This manual is designed to assist environmental staff, facility managers, consultants, and government personnel needing a hands-on analysis of the Clean Air Act (CAA) compliance issues. It offers an understanding of: the basic scope of the CAA legislation; interrelationships among the act's various programs; CAA-related regulations affecting emission sources; key concepts used in determining whether a regulation applies to a particular facility; primary mechanisms for demonstrating compliance with the CAA requirements; and additional sources of air-related information. The contents address the following questions: (I) What is the Clean Air Program? (Chapters 1-3); (II) Which regulations affect emission sources? (Chapters 4-10); and (III) What tools are available for demonstrating compliance? (Chapters 11-14). Of particular interest to transportation professionals is Chapter 10 - Transportation-Related Sources--Regulations, Emissions, and Modeling. Topics discussed in this chapter are statutory and regulatory mandates; state implementation plan (SIP) conformity; CAA's Fleet Program; engine, emission, and fuel requirements; calculating emissions; and dispersion modeling. A bibliography, glossary, and keyword index are provided.
