Abstract
In order to comply with the NAAQS for CO in Wichita, Kansas, a special study was necessary to demonstrate that a special purpose monitor (SPM) located on Douglas Street would give results less than the NAAQS by 1987. The SPM site is located near the urban core in an area characterized by high nighttime traffic volumes and congested traffic flow. Exceedances of the 8-hour NAAQS were measured in 1983 and early 1984. A dispersion modeling analysis was performed using the CALINE-3 Model for dispersion, the MOBILE-3 Model for vehicle emissions, and local or national traffic and ambient conditions. Background concentrations were derived from other monitors in the area. Results of modeling the SPM site for baseline (1983) emissions indicate agreement within about 10 percent of maximum measured CO concentrations. For 1987 the SPM is projected to be in compliance. An alternate CO receptor location was proposed on Broadway in order to avoid the downtown cruising phenomena and to offer a more representative site for evaluating the attainment/nonattainment status of Wichita. Results indicate CO concentrations less than the NAAQS in 1983 and about half of the NAAQS in 1987. Transportation control measures are recommended to decrease the time needed to achieve compliance at the SPM site.
