The documents listed below are state and tribe responses to EPA's request for recommendations on the designation of areas for the 24-hour PM2.5 standard and EPA's responses to those submittals. These responses are provided here in PDF format for INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY and do not represent EPA's views on the appropriateness or adequacy of a state's or a tribe's recommendations.

The quality of these PDF files is quite variable and is the result of the quality of the documents provided by the states.
