In July, EPA announced its proposed approval of the Dallas Fort Worth Clean Air Plan. The proposed approval of the plan will be open for public comment following its publication in the Federal register. DFW’s plan would add an additional 40 tons in cuts to ozone forming pollutants than it had previously proposed, and would lead to a total cut of by 88 tons per day. In conjunction with previous plans, the Clean Air Plan would result in over 400 tons of ozone pollution reduction per day. EPA notes that “Dallas-Fort Worth is the first community with a clean air plan that has been proposed for approval that meets the 8-hour federal health-based standard for ozone by 2010.”
