Air Quality Conformity Determination for PM2.5 

May 1, 2018 through May 30, 2018


The Orange County Transportation Council (OCTC) will consider taking action regarding the Air Quality Conformity Determination for PM2.5 at the OCTC Policy Committee meeting in June.  The Air Quality Conformity Determination will be available for public review from May 1, 2018 through May 30, 2018.


The Air Quality Conformity Determination for PM2.5 fine particulate matter is a requirement, as Orange County is in a designated maintenance area for PM2.5, which is shared with the New York Metropolitan Area. The intent of air quality conformity is to ensure coordination between transportation and air quality planning to ensure that transportation programs and projects in the Long Range Transportation Plan will not cause any new violations, increase the frequency or severity of violations, or delay timely attainment of the PM2.5 standard.


Written comments, questions, or requests for assistance in accessing the document should be directed to OCTC staff at the Orange County Planning Department using the contact information below.
