This report presents guidelines for the identification and evaluation of localized violations of carbon monoxide air quality standards in the vicinity of streets and highways. The guidelines are provided to facilitate the rapid and efficient review of CO conditions along existing roadway networks, without the need for extensive air quality monitoring, and are based upon the use of limited traffic data. Two stages of review are provided for. Preliminary screening, performed with simple nomographs included herein, simply identifies those locations with the potential to violate CO standards; no quantitative estimate of CO concentrations results from preliminary screening. Verification screening, using procedures and forms provided herein, allows for consideration of additional site-specific conditions and provides quantitative estimates of maximum CO concentrations. Both screening procedures are performed manually and are based upon the EPA Indirect Source Review Guidelines. Data collection procedures, computation techniques, and forms are recommended, and examples are provided.
