Abstract In order to comply with the NAAQS for CO in Wichita, Kansas, a special study was performed to demonstrate that CO concentrations at a special purpose monitor (SPM) located near Douglas and Main Streets 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 with no exceedances since January 8, 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 were calibrated with maximum measured CO concentrations. Several scenarios were analyzed in this analysis including with and without the inspection/maintenance program and with and without the left-turn ban from Douglas to Main Streets. Results indicate attainment in 1985 continuing through 1987 if I/M is maintained.
