EPA Lowers Permissible Soot Levels in Air
Date:12/15/2012

ution-control programs must now meet these standards once finalized, he added.

Steps the EPA has already taken, however, mean that "99 percent of U.S. counties are projected to meet the standard without any additional action," Jackson said. Fewer than 10 counties in the United States -- out of more than 3,000 -- will have to take more action to meet the new standard by 2020, she noted.

The EPA announcement resulted from a 2009 federal court ruling. After the EPA failed to meet the original deadline, a court order set Dec. 14 as the new deadline.

"By strengthening the standards for soot, metals and other pollution, the EPA is doing its job under the Clean Air Act to protect Americans from dangerous air pollution," Walke said.

To determine if the pollution limits need to be revised, the EPA is required under the Clean Air Act to review its air-quality standards every five years.

Jackson noted that this new protection won't affect existing standards for other fine particles or coarse particles, including dust from farms and other sources.
