Engineering-Science assisted the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) in updating their existing point and area source air pollutant emission inventories of particulate matter and sulfur dioxide for Erie and Niagara Counties. Major point sources (greater than 25 tons per year of particulates or sulfur dioxide) were comprehensively analyzed using DEC data at their Buffalo office. ES obtained additional information required to complete the updates from questionnaires sent to plant representatives. The updated inventory for major sources represents normal point source operation, with separate accounting for unusual operating conditions during calendar year 1975. Control equipment downtime was considered in developing 1975 emission levels. ES updated minor point sources with the assistance of the DEC data management computer system edit program which identifies missing or suspect data based on predetermined discriminator limits. In developing area source parameters and allocation procedures, ES made use of the methodologies described in Volumes 1 through 13 of the EPA Guideline Series for AQMA analysis. ES and the DEC jointly conducted a survey of fuel dealers and prime suppliers. In addition to the development of area source values for subcounty areas, ES recommended appropriate emission factors to the EPA for their use in estimating emissions.
