The 1996 Compliance Report highlights the progress under EPA's Acid Rain Program during the first year of compliance with the NOx program and the second year with the SO2 program. Affected facilities demonstrated 100 percent compliance for both pollutants and even exceeded in the compliance targets set by the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990. With respect to NOx affected utility units reduced emission rates by an average of 40 percent below 1990 levels, emitting 33 percent less NOx in the process, and demonstrating an average of 18 percent overcompliance with the regulations. For SO2, utilities nearly matched their extraordinary overcompliance of 1995 with emissions that were 35 percent below 1996 allocated levels.
