As counties fail air quality tests, critics slam EPA over enforcement

As counties fail air quality tests, critics slam EPA over enforcement
by Marjo R. Moore
Dec. 23, 2004 – The Environmental Protection Agency announced last week that twenty states -- largely clustered in the northeastern US -- failed new Environmental Protection Agency guidelines that measure levels of microscopic soot in the air.
The EPA set a 2010 deadline for air quality improvement and has said the District of Columbia and 224 counties nationwide that have not met the standards must submit their plans by early 2008 to attain the fine particle air quality goal.
According to EPA experts, particles as small as 1/30th the size of human hair may aggravate chronic heart and lung conditions. The agency estimated hundreds of thousands of people will breathe easier and 15,000 premature deaths will be avoided if the pollution trend is corrected.
The EPA said it worked closely with state and local governments to pinpoint regions that failed the standard. Power plants and diesel engines were identified as a major part of the problem.
But the Sierra Club, one of the nation’s leading environmental organizations, criticized the EPA for "prescribing snake-oil" instead of offering a cure to communities suffering from bad air quality.
The Bush administration’s critics have accused the president of failing enforce the landmark Clean Air Act, while creating loopholes for the nation’s dirtiest coal-burning power plants. In 2003, the Environmental Protection Agency announced a rule change to a provision of the Clean Air Act known as "New Source Review," which required older plants to come into compliance with the Act’s standards when they upgrade or expand their facilities. The new rules loosen environmental restrictions on power plant, oil refinery and chemical manufacturer expansion.
"Communities deserve to know if airborne soot poses a local health risk -- and they also deserve clean, safe air as soon as possible," said Nat Mund, an air quality expert working with the Sierra Club. "Instead, the Bush administration and some Congressional leaders are actively working to promote legislation that would allow the dirtiest facilities to pollute more -- for longer -- than they would if the existing Clean Air Act was strongly enforced."
The Administration has proposed its own air quality legislation -- the so-called Clear Skies Act, which requires companies to reduce emissions but at the same time dilutes the standards of the Clean Air Act.
