Reasonably Available Control Measures Analysis for TCMs



RACM Analysis for Transportation Control Measures for the 2022 AQMP

The District is developing a new Air Quality Management Plan (AQMP) to attain the 2015 federal 8-hour ozone standard. The 2022 AQMP will be submitted to U.S. EPA in August 2022 as part of the State Implementation Plan (SIP). The federal Clean Air Act (CAA) requires a review of reasonably available control measures (RACM) for Transportation Control Measures (TCMs) during the development of the 2022 AQMP. For TCMs to be considered as RACM, they must be both technologically and economically feasible and must advance the attainment date of the federal air quality standard by at least one year.


The list of candidate RACM is being prepared by the District using TCMs from the 2016 Ventura County AQMP RACM analysis, the CAA Section 108(f)(1)(A), and other air quality districts and regional planning organizations.


The RACM analysis is currently being conducted as we develop the 2022 AQMP and will be made public and available on the VCAPCD website. The staff of the Ventura County Transportation Commission (VCTC) and its advisory committees will have an opportunity to review and comment. The RACM analysis will also be presented and reviewed by the Southern California Association of Governments’ Transportation Conformity Working Group. We encourage everyone to review the 2022 RACM analysis list and provide comments and suggestions.
