Rider 8 State and Local Air Quality Planning Program: Modeling Files and Information
Each program area is strongly encouraged, with assistance from the TCEQ, to develop a draft photochemical modeling protocol that could be included in the State Implementation Plan. Initially Rider 8 staff should refer to protocols developed for the most recent Houston/Galveston/ Brazoria (HGB) and Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) 8-Hour Ozone Attainment Demonstration SIPs as a reference point for development of the protocols. The protocols are available from the HGB SIP Modeling and DFW SIP Modeling web pages.
The EPA made the Area Designations for the 2008 Ground-level Ozone Standard in April 2012. No Rider 8 area was designated under the standard. The draft protocols would initially be used for informational purposes and not submitted to the U.S. EPA for review and/or comment unless an area chose to do so as part of their Ozone Advance program.
