2003 San Joaquin Valley PM10 State Implementation Plan (SIP)

This page updated February 23, 2005.

The San Joaquin Valley Unified Air Pollution Control District (District) consists of San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Merced, Madera, Kings, Tulare and Fresno Counties, and the western portion of Kern County.  On June 19, 2003, the District adopted a SIP revision to demonstrate attainment of the federal 24-hour and annual average standards for inhalable particulate matter (PM10).  Following a public hearing on June 26, 2003, ARB adopted the SIP revision and submitted it to U.S. EPA on August 19, 2003.  On December 30, 2003, ARB submitted amendments to the 2003 PM10 Plan to U.S. EPA to provide further clarification requested by U.S. EPA staff.  The 2003 PM10 Plan was approved by U.S. EPA effective June 25, 2004.

The 2003 PM10 Plan includes the most recent data on air quality, emissions and modeling to assess attainment. The 2003 PM10 Plan also includes new control strategies for stationary, area and mobile sources reflecting new measures for local and State implementation. The District developed the local element along with the transportation planning agencies while the Air Resources Board (ARB) prepared the State element in consultation with the affected agencies.


San Joaquin Valley 2003 PM10 Plan, June 2003.  The Plan relies on State measures to specifically target reductions for attainment of the PM10 standard in the San Joaquin Valley. These State measures are a subset of the comprehensive statewide strategy identified as part of the Proposed 2003 State and Federal Strategy for the California SIP, August 2003.
