In response to the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1977, the Metropolitan Boston AQCR has been designated as a nonattainment area for ozone. As a result, the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Quality Engineering must submit a revision of their State Implementation Plan (SIP) to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The first step in preparing a SIP revision is to inventory the emission sources of the pollutant which is of concern. This report presents a discussion of the procedures followed by Engineering-Science in the inventory of the Boston AQCR VOC point sources. Specifically, Chapter 2 outlines the methodologies utilized in identifying and surveying potential sources. Chapter 3 gives an analysis of how the emissions levels were estimated. Chapter 4 shows a summary of the results from this study, and Chapter 5 presents an analysis of existing VOC regulations and their applicability to this study.
