Abstract:
The EPA is required, under section 112(m) of the Clean Air Act, to evaluate the deposition of hazardous air pollutants to the Great Lakes, Lake Champlain, Chesapeake Bay and coastal waters (collectively known as the "Great Waters") and to submit biennial Reports to Congress on the results of such evaluation. This Third Report to Congress reviews trends in emissions, transport, fate and effects of the pollutants of concern and highlights the programs and activities designed to reduce the impacts. These activities span across all levels of government and the private sector and include both regulatory and voluntary programs. The report also describes key developments in the science and tools (e.g., monitoring networks and models) for analyzing air deposition to coastal waters. These files are the text of the report.
