PUBLIC NOTICE: Ozone Emergency Episode Plan
The Northern Sierra Air Quality Management District (NSAQMD) is accepting comments on a proposed Ozone Emergency Episode Plan (EEP), which is a contingency plan intended to prevent ambient ozone concentrations at any location from reaching the significant harm level of 0.6 parts per million (ppm) and to abate such concentrations if they should occur. An EEP is federally required for all air districts in the Mountain Counties Air Basin Air Quality Control Region that have monitored ozone concentrations exceeding 0.10 ppm. A 2-site public hearing via videoconference or telephone will be held February 24, 2020 at 1:00 PM at both NSAQMD offices: 200 Litton Drive, Suite 316, Grass Valley, CA and 257 East Sierra Street, Unit E, Portola, CA.

Written comments must be received by February 22, 2020 at NSAQMD, 200 Litton Dr., Ste. 320, Grass Valley, CA 95945 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
