  3. Exceptional Events Timeline • Phoenix Area = NAA since 1990 amendments • 5% Plan submitted in 2007 • Calendar Year 2010 • Resubmitted 4 EE demonstrations for 2008 • Each > 400 pages of highly technical information • Unsuccessful, withdrew 5% Plan • Calendar Year 2011 - EPA Guidance • Calendar Year 2012 • New 5% Plan submitted • ADEQ submitted July 2-8, 2011 Events • Total package < 250 pages in length • Approved on September 6, 2012 • EPA revised guidance, worked with ADEQ • Further streamlining • 40-60 pages of new material per event

  5. Who and How Much? • ADEQ staff lead the project • Local help • MAG, Maricopa County • Contractors engaged • Sierra Research • Sonoma Technology • Cost • Staff time • $400,000 in contract charges • Only includes Maricopa County

  6. Repeated Events • Set the stage in the first submission: • Introduction and background done once • Most of conceptual model • Historical fluctuations updated periodically • Not reasonably controllable or preventable • Event specific information: • Some conceptual model elements • Clear causal relationship • “But for” analysis • Supporting forecasts/data/analyses

  7. Other Helpful Tools • Strategic planning performance measures • Focus on improving Air Quality • Submit EE’s within 180 days • EPA concurrence on 95% of submissions • Develop a screening tool

  8. Recommendations • Get really smart people • Involve the customer • Tell the story in words, not just data • Use photos/video evidence of the event wherever possible • Go fast
