Areas of the country where air pollution levels persistently exceed the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) may be designated "nonattainment."

The EPA Green Book provides detailed information about NAAQS designations, classifications and nonattainment status. Information is provided as of the Green Book posted date and is available in reports, maps and file downloads.
See: National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS)

Questions concerning information in the Green Book and related EPA policy should be directed to the appropriate Regional Office. EPA Headquarters should be contacted only when the Regional Office is unable to answer a question.
