IMPLICATIONS FOR TRANSPORTATION OF NEW FEDERAL AIR POLLUTION CONTROLS

A concise legislative history of federal air pollution control efforts terminating with the Clean Air Amendments of 1970 provides the basis for a discussion of the implications of compliance with federal ambient air quality standards. A major implication is the need in numerous urban areas for transportation controls, control mechanisms not addressed by most of the state implementation plans submitted to the Environmental Protection Agency in January of 1972. A review of the rollback methodology used in predicting future air quality attendant with projected emission reductions is presented. Inherent data base uncertainties and basic technological and socioeconomic assumptions employed are discussed. The use of a comprehensive systems analysis approach for evaluating the externalities of selected implementation plan control strategies is strongly endorsed. /Author/
