The Air Toxics Program relies on delegated portions of the EPA program for permitting, compliance and enforcement, while emphasizing ambient monitoring to evaluate the air toxic concerns unique to Oklahoma. Rules for the Air Toxics Program can be found in Subchapter 42 and the list of pollutants and standards for the program can be found in Appendix O.
The pollutants in Appendix O were selected because of their relevance to Oklahoma. Should the levels in Appendix O be exceeded, an “area of concern” could be designated, allowing resources to be focused on finding local solutions to that area.
