This report presents an analysis of alternative inspection/maintenance programs for the St. Louis Air Quality Control Region (AQCR). For purposes of this study, it was assumed that inspection/maintenance would be implemented in St. Louis City and County. The costs associated with the alternatives analyzed were estimated using information from equipment manufacturers, the cognizant state agencies, and data from existing or planned inspection/maintenance programs in other areas of the United States. The effectiveness in terms of carbon monoxide and hydrocarbon emissions reductions were calculated for 1977, 1980, 1985, and 1990 for the entire AQCR. An implemention schedule was developed and the key issues associated with implementation are discussed.
