EPA Ground Level Ozone Smog Standard - Public Hearings

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will hold three public hearings on the proposal to revise the national air quality standards for ground-level ozone, also called smog. EPA is proposing to set the “primary” standard, to protect public health, at a level between 0.060 and 0.070 parts per million measured over eight hours. EPA is also proposing to set a separate, seasonal “secondary” standard to protect the environment, especially plants and trees.

The hearings will be held in the following cities:

Feb. 2: Arlington, VA
Feb. 2: Houston, TX
Feb. 4: Sacramento, CA
