The revision of the Guideline on AQ Models (Appendix W) will prompt many changes in the way dispersion modeling is conducted for regulatory purposes. Some of the changes to the Guideline include enhancements and bug fixes to the AERMOD modeling system, new screening techniques to address ozone and secondary PM2.5, delisting CALPUFF as the preferred long-range transport model, and updates on the use of meteorological input data. These changes will have a significant impact on the regulated community. This presentation will cover the main highlights from this guidance and how the electric utility industry will be impacted. In addition, the latest information provided by EPA during the 2016 Regional, State, and Local Modelers' Workshop will also be presented.
