The New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) is seeking input on the development of its Regional Haze State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision, which is due to EPA July 31, 2021.
Air Quality Bureau (AQB) staff have been involved in regional work in preparation for this planning effort and will begin a program of public outreach to gather comments and suggestions on Regional Haze efforts. To be effective, this outreach must be as comprehensive as possible.
A new website is now available on visibility and regional haze in New Mexico at the following link: https://www.env.nm.gov/air-quality/reg-haze/. The website describes EPA requirements, shows trends in New Mexico’s national parks and wilderness areas, and has information on NMED’s planning process and guiding principles.
If you or someone you know is interested in participating in or following the Regional Haze planning process, go to: https://public.govdelivery.com/accounts/NMED/subscriber/new and register for the new AQB Regional Haze Announcements topic. Although NMED is in the early stages of planning, announcements will begin soon and this email alert system will be the best way to stay abreast of current events regarding Regional Haze.
If you require another method of communication, please call or write our main office and request your preferred method of communication with your contact information. We will make every effort to accommodate your preferences. You may contact our main office using the contact information at the end of this email.
