EPA considers fine particle pollution it's most pressing air quality problem, and the Agency is taking a number of steps that will reduce particle emissions and formation. These efforts range from EPA's Acid Rain program and regulations reducing emissions from fuels and diesel engines, to implementation of the Agency's first fine particle standards and a proposed rule to reduce particle-forming emissions from power plants. In this report, EPA explores characteristics of particle pollution in the United States; Analyzes particle pollution for 2003 (the most recent year of data); Summarizes recent and long-term trends; investigates the relationship between air quality and emissions; and reviews some current programs and future prospects for reducing particle pollution levels. In addition, text boxes in this report present information on more specialized areas of interest, such as the PM Supersite project, episodic events, satellite monitoring, and the relationship of particle pollution to other air pollutants.
