Regional Haze Planning Workgroup Coordination and Glide Path Subcommittee

Overview/Purpose for all RHPWG Subcommittees:
The purpose of the subcommittees in their subject areas would be to:
  1. Interact and coordinate with other appropriate WRAP Work Groups for Regional Haze SIP preparation tasks.
  2. Develop principles or protocols to guide RH SIP preparation tasks that are appropriate for western state circumstances.
  3. Determine when and what contract work is needed and assist in preparation of contract tasks and evaluation of work products.
  4. Keep pace of work on schedule for RH SIP preparation

The purpose of the “Coordination and Glide Path” subcommittee is to coordinate communications with the larger RHPWG regarding SIP planning needs, development of the shared database, and documentation that may be used in SIP revisions or public outreach. The subcommittee also advises the technical contractors for the shared database, the TSS v2, housed at CIRA, Colorado State University) regarding the database functionalities needed and data display. This subcommittee will coordinate with many other subcommittees and work groups to accomplish its purpose.

This subcommittee, formed in February 2019, is the result of merging remaining tasks from the following three subcommittees, which operated through February 2019: Responsibilities and Deliverables
  1. Assist with evaluation (or scoping for contract work) regarding trend analysis for monitoring data, including natural conditions, and “glidepath” construction, including adjustments.
  2. Coordinate with various subcommittees and work groups to ensure a smooth transition to populating the TSS v.2 with correct and complete monitoring data, emissions data, and modeling results.
  3. Coordinate efforts to complete and distribute informational products, including documentation of analyses, consultation tracking, planning requirements, and training webinars.
