Northeast Texas: Latest Ozone Planning Activities

Latest events and activities related to the Northeast Texas (NETX) area’s compliance with the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for ground-level ozone.

NETX Early Action Compact

On December 20, 2002, the TCEQ and local organizations signed an Early Action Compact (EAC) for the NETX area. On March 31, 2004, a final EAC plan was submitted to the TCEQ for incorporation into the State Implementation Plan (SIP). On November 17, 2004, the commission adopted revisions to the SIP for the San Antonio, Austin, and NETX EAC areas and to 30 Texas Administrative Code Chapters 114Exit the TCEQ and 115Exit the TCEQ. The adopted revision to the NETX SIP contained results of photochemical modeling and technical documentation to support that the area would attain the 1997 eight-hour ozone standard by 2007. The EAC program concluded in the spring of 2008.

The NETX area is currently designated attainment for the 1997 eight-hour ozone NAAQS.
