On October 15, EPA published the Revised Acid Rain Program Policy Manual which supercedes Policy Manual Updates #1 through # 11. EPA interim policy releases since the publication of the revised Part 75 rule have been added to the applicable sections of this Manual. For example, the Implementation Guidelines have been added as Question 1.12 to Section 1 and flow monitoring policy concerning the new 3-D Reference Methods has been included in Section 3. Numerous questions have also been revised and/or relocated to other Sections of the document.
Additionally, USEPA issued a Retired Questions document, which includes over 90 outdated or inconsistent policy questions and answers. This document is designed to present a historical perspective of the Acid Rain Program only and may not be used for compliance purposes. Copies of the Revised Acid Rain Program Policy Manual and Retired Questions may be downloaded from our FTP Library. RMB anticipates that more updates to the Policy Manual will follow in the near future.
