Emission density zoning is an air quality control strategy whereby all parcels of land within an air quality maintenance area, excluding public rights of way and reserved open space, are assigned maximum legal emission allowances for particulate matter and sulfur oxides, expressed in terms of mass of pollutant per time period per lot area. The subject of this publication is the development of criteria for (a) partitioning an air quality maintenance area into component areas, (b) the setting of emission density limits for all land uses in each component area and, separately, all major emission sources, and (c) the revision of the emission density limits as conditions change. The criteria are then translated into a generalizable decision model, a linear program, for setting the emission density limits. The criteria and model are tested in two air quality maintenance areas, Baltimore and Louisville.
