Air Quality

The documents listed below are Baseline Reports categorized topically as air quality.

This Modeling Report includes a description of the methods and datasets used in the air quality modeling analyses to estimate the Resolution Project’s air quality impacts relative to the applicable Ambient Air Quality Standards (AAQS) for criteria pollutants and to Air Quality Related Values (AQRV) in the near-field domain (Class I Superstition Wilderness Areas [SWA], White Canyon Area of Critical Environmental Concern [WC ACEC], Class II Needle’s Eye Wilderness Area [NEWA]) and in several Class I Wilderness Areas in the far-field domain (Sierra Ancha Wilderness Area [SAWA], Mazatzal Wilder
