An area source emission inventory was developed for Georgetown County, South Carolina. Baseline year emissions estimates were allocated to grids. The Air Quality Display Model (AQDM) was used to determine the source-receptor relationship for the baseline year. Using this baseline relationship and a projected emission inventory, the AQDM was used to analyze air quality attainment and maintenance in 1980 and 1985. Although all criteria pollutants were inventoried, only particulate emissions were modeled. Primary National Ambient Air Quality Standards for particulate were violated during the baseline year. The analysis indicated that the standards will continue to be violated unless more stringent controls are adopted. Further study of weather conditions and fugitive emissions from industrial point sources was recommended. Additional modeling was attempted to incorporate industrial process fugitive particulate emissions in the analysis. (Portions of this document are not fully legible)
