REMINDER! On March 17, 2023, EPA issued draft guidance to address the Clean Air Act’s contingency measure (CM) requirement for nonattainment areas for the ozone and particulate matter National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS).

This draft guidance clarifies and explains approaches available to air agencies to meet the CM requirement, while still complying with the Clean Air Act as interpreted by the courts.

Under the draft guidance, EPA would allow more measures to be considered as possible CMs and would also change the way the recommended amount of CM reductions is calculated to account for the nonattainment area’s projected decline in emissions needed to attain the NAAQS. EPA is also clarifying that it could accept less than the recommended amount of CM reductions if an air agency sufficiently demonstrates that its nonattainment plan includes all feasible measures and there are not additional feasible measures in the area that could be held in reserve as CMs.

Once the notice is published in the Federal Register, there will be an opportunity for public comment for 30 days. Submit your comments, identified by Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OAR-2023- 0063, at http://www.regulations.gov.

Registration: The Residential Wood Smoke Training Workshop registration is now open, please take a moment to register.  The Registration site will allow you to register for the in-person workshop or virtually.  If you are likely to join in person, please register in that manner and if you end up not being able to attend in-person, then we can simply modify your status.  Seating is limited so register now.


Draft Agenda, Topics & Speakers:    We have very robust list of topics we will cover during the Workshop and are currently finalizing speakers, the length of each session and determining what topics will be covered on what days.


Transportation: From the Denver Airport we recommend taking a train to Denver Union Station which is ½ mile from the hotel: Take the “A-line Train” from the airport, distance is 24 miles/45 minutes and cost $10.50 – each way.  Also, please include in your travel cost funds to transport yourself on Tuesday afternoon (4/11) about 10 miles from the EPA Region 8 building to and from the “Fireplace Warehouse Denver” which is our field trip destination.  Options will be to share a ride with others likely via Uber, Lyft or taxi with an estimated cost of $20 – $25 per vehicle.

Cost is TBD, likely around $25.  More to come.

Keep in mind we have not had this Workshop in over three years and it’s hard to say when we will have another opportunity to meet in person.  With the PM2.5 NAAQS possibly being lowered and the unprecedented funds available through the Inflation Reduction Act, I hope you will join us in Denver.  Please share this information with others and feel free to reach out if you have questions.


REMINDER! The White House: FACT SHEET: How the Inflation Reduction Act Helps Tribal Communities

By signing the Inflation Reduction Act, President Biden is delivering on his promise to meet the climate crisis and build an economy that works for working families, including Tribal nations and American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian families. The Inflation Reduction Act lowers prescription drug costs, health care costs, and energy costs. It’s the most aggressive action we have taken to confront the climate crisis. It’ll lower the deficit and ask the super wealthy and corporations to pay their fair share. And no one making under $400,000 per year will pay a penny more in taxes. Click Here for FACT SHEET.
