Public hearing concerning the proposed State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision of the attainment plan for the Wisconsin portion (Kenosha County-Partial) of the Chicago-Naperville (IL-IN-WI) 2008 8-Hour ozone serious nonattainment area
Date: Friday, November 06, 2020
Time: 11:00 a.m. to end of agenda
Meeting Type: Online and/or Conference Call (see detailed information)
Contact: Olivia Salmon, 608-264-9219
Detailed information:

The DNR is submitting this SIP revision to the U.S. EPA as required by the federal Clean Air Act (CAA). The Chicago-Naperville nonattainment area consists of portions of Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin. On August 23, 2019, EPA reclassified the Chicago nonattainment area to serious nonattainment status. Due to this action, Wisconsin is required to submit a plan to EPA demonstrating how the partial Kenosha County nonattainment area will attain the 2008 ozone NAAQS by the serious area attainment date of July 20, 2021. The DNR is proposing to submit this SIP to fulfill that requirement.

This hearing will take place virtually via Zoom. The link and call-in information to the hearing is available in the hearing notice and on the Air Regulations and Policies Public Notices page.

At this meeting, the DNR will provide an overview of the topics to be considered and an invitation to complete an online topic ranking form, and will also take comments on which topics the public feel should be priorities. The comment period will be open from November 16 through December 4, 2020.
