Outreach to Emissions Sources for Air Pollution Permitting on Tribal Lands

Office of Air and Radiation, Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards, Air Quality Policy Division, New Source Review Group

The Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards (OAQPS) compiles and reviews air pollution data, develops regulations to limit and reduce air pollution, assists states and local agencies with monitoring and controlling air pollution, makes information about air pollution available to the public, and reports to Congress on the status of air pollution and the progress made in reducing pollution.

EPA is developing rules that govern permitting of air pollution sources located on sovereign Tribal lands. One of the challenges in establishing and carrying out permitting rules on Tribal lands is identifying the sources of emissions that potentially would require air pollution permits. Under this project, the fellow will research air pollution issues on Tribal lands, and how the United States's air pollution permit system applies to sovereign Tribal nations. The fellow will work with staff of OAQPS as they characterize affected sources and produce outreach materials for these sources on obtaining pollution permits.

The fellow can expect to increase his or her knowledge of criteria and air toxics pollutant control, policy analysis, the community tribal program, and the federal regulatory process. When the project is complete, the fellow will have accomplished one or more of the following: (1) analyzed air pollutant issues in local areas, (2) reviewed implementation activities to reduce air pollution, and (3) developed skills needed to advance program guidance and implementation for local application on sovereign tribal lands.

Final Product:
The fellow will be expected to develop a final report and to make presentations that summarize the results of activities completed.
