This study evaluates the potential of five air pollution control strategies to meet ozone attainment deadlines in Houston-Galveston. The scenarios analyze: (1) pre-1979 regulations, (2) A State Implementation Plan (SIP) based on Reasonable Available Control Technology (RACT), (3) A RACT SIP which requires emission offsets for new sources, (4) A RACT SIP which allows no major source construction after 1979, and (5) A SIP which bans construction after 1979 and requires existing sources to retrofit with Lowest Achievable Emissions Rate (LAER) technology.
