harp -- HARP 2 Emission Inventory Module: 30-day Public Review Period Posted: 04 Apr 2013 13:34:55
This message is to inform you that ARB has released the HARP 2 Emission Inventory Module for a 30-day public review esting period. During this testing period, please submit any comments or issues discovered to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline to submit comments is May 6, 2013. If you would like to test the new HARP 2 Emission Inventory Module, you may download the installation package and draft user manual at http://www.arb.ca.gov/toxics/harp/downloads.htm. Background The Hotspots Analysis and Reporting Program (HARP) is a tool that assists with the programmatic requirements of the Air Toxics "Hot Spots" Program. HARP is a single integrated software package that can be used by the air pollution control and air quality management districts (districts), facility operators, and other parties to promote statewide consistency, efficiency, and cost-effective development of facility and emission inventories and health risk assessments. HARP can also be used for other types of health risk assessments used in other programs such as in district permitting of existing and new facilities (e.g., facility permitting). HARP was first released to the public at the end of 2003. ARB is currently updating the HARP software. The latest version of HARP is different from the 2003 version. The new version of HARP has been separated into three individual programs (Emission Inventory Module, Air Dispersion Module, and the Risk Assessment Module) which will allow users to access any of the modules independently from each other. As in the previous version, the information can still be shared between each program. For consistency, the three programs are still referred to as the Emission Inventory Module, Air Dispersion Module, and the Risk Assessment Module. The new version of HARP will also include AERMOD and the updates to the OEHHA “Hot Spots” Risk Assessment Guidelines. At this time, ARB is releasing the HARP 2 Emission Inventory Module for public review. ARB anticipates on having the Air Dispersion and Risk Assessment Modules available within six months to a year after the final part of the OEHHA “Hot Spots” Risk Assessment Guidelines is adopted.
