Abstract

In the United States, the basic approach to regional air quality management was established by the federal Clean Air Act of 1970. Under the Act, the US Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) sets National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for air pollutants. Areas which fail to meet NAAQS are called non-attainment areas.
