Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) Improvement Program
CMAQ funds are intended to improve air quality and funds must be spent in non-attainment or maintenance areas. A non attainment area is an area formally designated by the EPA as not meeting the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) as listed in the Clean Air Act. A maintenance area is a location that was previously a non-attainment area but has since become in compliance with the NAAQS and has officially been re-designated to an attainment area by the EPA. The metropolitan Yakima Valley area, in and around the cities of Selah, Yakima, and Union Gap, are currently designated maintenance areas for both Carbon Monoxide (CO) and particulates of 10 micrometers or less (PM10). Below are Links to documents pertinent to the CMAQ Improvement Program.
