On July 21, 2014, New Jersey submitted its "Proposed SIP Revision for the 75 ppb 8-Hour Ozone NAAQS RACT Demonstration, 2011 Periodic Emission Inventory, and 8-Hour Carbon Monoxide NAAQS Maintenance and Monitoring Plan" to the USEPA. New Jersey completed its "Final" SIP Revision on June 11, 2015. This document establishes revisions to the existing SIP in accordance with Clean Air Act Requirements for attainment and maintenance of the NAAQS. The SIP revision includes: 1. Ozone RACT determination; 2. Emission Inventory for Ozone Precursors; 3. 2011 Periodic Emissions Inventory; 4. Carbon Monoxide Maintenance Plan for the New Jersey portion of the New York-Northern New Jersey-Long Island Carbon Monoxide Maintenance Area (this second ten-year maintenance plan will cover the period from January 1, 2015 – December 31, 2024); and 5. Changes to the carbon monoxide air monitoring network.
