2007 8-Hour Ozone Maintenance Plan 


On August 16, 2007, the District’s Board adopted the 2007 Clean Air Plan which demonstrates continued attainment of the 8-hour ozone standard. The jurisdictional area covered by this plan is the same area that was subject to a Federally-approved maintenance plan for the previous 1-hour ozone standard.

2001 1-Hour Ozone Attainment Demonstration and Maintenance Plan  


The District's Board adopted the 2001 Attainment Demonstration and Maintenance Plan (2001 Clean Air Plan) in November 2001.  In December 2002, the District's Board adopted a revision to the 2001 Clean Air Plan to reflect ARB's updated mobile source emission factors model (EMFAC2002).  The plan documents that Santa Barbara County attained the 1-hour ozone standard and met the maintenance plan requirements set forth in the Clean Air Act.  ARB requested that U.S. EPA approve the maintenance plan and redesignate Santa Barbara County to attainment for the one-hour ozone standard.

1998 1-Hour Ozone Air Quality Management Plan


Santa Barbara County did not attain the federal ozone standard by the December 1997 attainment deadline. Subsequently, the nonattainment area was required to submit a SIP revision to address planning requirements as a result of a reclassification due to the failure to attain the standard.  In December 1998, the District's Board adopted an air quality management plan (1998 Clean Air Plan) that revised the 1994 ozone attainment demonstration, conformity budgets, and added the post 1996 rate of progress demonstrations. In addition, the 1998 Clean Air Plan updated ozone modeling and improvements to the emission inventory.
