UPSTATE NEW YORK'S RESPONSE TO THE MANDATES OF THE CLEAN AIR ACT

The Clean Air Act Amendments of 1977 require urban areas currently in non-attainment of the national air quality standards to develop a control plan that will permit them to achieve the standards by 1982. The Amendments also recommend consideration of 18 control strategies for those areas in violation of standards for transportation-related pollutants. This paper describes the approaches taken for seven Upstate New York Urban areas found to be in violation of air quality standards for transportation-related pollutants. It describes pollutant concentration monitoring, emissions modelling and control strategy evaluation acitivities undertaken by the New York State Departments of Transportation and Environmental Conservation and the Metropolitan Planning Organizations for these urban areas. Preliminary estimates of the effectiveness of the recommended mobile source control strategies are given. The non-air quality impacts of the strategies are also discussed. /Authors/
