GBUAPCD RULE 1217 CRIT. & PROC.: LOCAL CO & PM10 VIOLATIONS
LAST REVISED 11/11/11

§ 1217 Criteria and procedures: Localized CO and PM10 violations (hot spots).

(a) During all periods the FHWA/FTA project must not cause or contribute to any new localized CO or PM10 violations or increase the frequency or severity of any existing CO or PM10 violations in CO and PM10 nonattainment and maintenance areas. This criterion is satisfied if it is demonstrated that no new local violations will be created and the severity or number of existing violations will not be increased as a result of the project.

(b) The demonstration must be performed according to the requirements of § 1206(c)(1)(i) and § 1232.

(c) For projects which are not of the type identified by §§ 1232(a) or 1232(d), this criterion may be satisfied if consideration of local factors clearly demonstrates that no local violations presently exist and no new local violations will be created as a result of the project. Otherwise, in CO nonattainment and maintenance areas, a quantitative demonstration must be performed according to the requirements of § 1232(b).
