The Air Quality Conformity Determination Report (AQ-CDR) demonstrates that certain pollutant emissions from the future transportation sector will not exceed a specified threshold. Although the Triangle area is in attainment for all of the controlled emissions, the area is in a maintenance program for ozone and therefore must demonstrate conformity for nitrous oxides, which help create ozone. The MPO partner, Triangle J Council of Government, is responsible for coordinating the air quality conformity process and document. The Triangle J Web page here provides additional information on Air Quality regulations and the detailed appendices for the AQ CDR. The link below provides the Air Quality Conformity Determination Report.
