The document provides technical information for developing prescribed burning (PB) best available control measures (BACM) strategies in areas designated serious nonattainment for PM-10 (particles with an aerodynamic diameter less than or equal to a nominal 10 micrometers) under the Clean Air Act (Act), as amended in 1990. States need the information to develop control strategies for serious PM-10 nonattainment area State implementation plans (SIP's). The document also provides background information useful in determining PB reasonably available control measures for moderate PM-10 nonattainment area SIP's. The document recommends an eight-component smoke management program for PB BACM: smoke dispersion evaluation, burn planning, burner qualifications, public education/awareness, surveillance and enforcement, emission inventory, emission reduction techniques, and State oversight. The objective of smoke management is to allow burning when it will not jeopardize air quality and when techniques to minimize emissions are employed.
