This document consists of the attainment demonstration, maintenance plan, and redesignation to attainment request for the Ajo Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) nonattainment area. The purpose of this document is to demonstrate how the area has met the National Ambient Air Quality Standards for SO2 and intends to maintain compliance with the NAAQS. Air quality standards are divided into two types: primary standards based on health effects and secondary standards based on environmental effects such as damage to property, plants, visibility, etc. Both standards are established by Environmental Protection Agency for criteria air pollutants such as sulfur dioxide.

Miami, Arizona, is a historic copper mining town in Gila County, 80 miles southeast of Phoenix and 112 miles northeast of Tucson. Miami’s sister city, Globe, lies four miles to the east.

In March, 2007, EPA approved a boundary redesignation of the Hayden/Miami PM10 nonattainment area into two separate, but adjoining, PM10 nonattainment areas. Together, these two new PM10 nonattainment areas cover the same geographic area as the original Hayden/Miami PM10 ...

The Clean Air Act states that an area designated as nonattainment due to a violation of the NAAQS may be redesignated to attainment if the State submits and EPA approves a plan demonstrating that permanent emission controls that resulted in attainment will remain in place. This plan demonstrates that all CAA requirements for attainment and maintenance have been met and summarizes the progress of the area in attaining the PM10 standard. This document includes a formal request to EPA to redesignate the Rillito, Arizona PM10 nonattainment area to attainment for the health-based 24-hour average PM10 NAAQS.

The State And Local Arizona Documents (SALAD) collection contains documents published by the State of Arizona, its Counties, incorporated Cities or Towns, or affiliated Councils of Government; documents produced under the auspices of a state or local agency, board, commission or department, including reports made to these units; and Salt River Project, a licensed municipality. ASU is a primary collector of state publications and makes a concerted effort to acquire and catalog most materials published by state and local governmental agencies.

The ASU Digital Repository provides access to digital SALAD publications, however the ASU Libraries’ non-digitized Arizona documents can be searched through the ASU Libraries Catalog. For additional assistance, Ask A Government Documents Librarian.

Publications issued by the Morrison Institute for Public Programs at Arizona State University are available in the ASU Digital Repository Morrison Institute for Public Policy - Publications Archive collection.
