EPA Approves State of Arkansas’ Plan for Air Permitting and Enforcement Programs

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved the state of Arkansas’ plan for administering programs related to the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). Pollutants regulated under these standards include ozone, lead, fine particulate matter, nitrogen dioxide and sulphur dioxide.

“EPA believes states are best suited to run their air-quality programs,” said Regional Administrator Anne Idsal. “Arkansas has demonstrated its monitoring, enforcement, and public notification programs are protective of the public’s health and the environment.”
