This report presents the results of a study to develop a particulate implementation plan for the Metropolitan Los Angeles Air Quality Control Region. The Los Angeles Region presently experiences suspended particulate levels well in excess of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards. This study formulates control strategies which produce substantial reductions in suspended particulate levels and evaluates the impact of these strategies in 1977 and 1980. Because of the severity of the Los Angeles particulate problem and because of significant background particulate levels, the strategy for standard attainment is of a very drastic nature. This study formulates and recommends other less drastic control plans for actual implementation.
