Within

Within Fayette County’s watersheds, impervious surface areas constitute as much as 23 percent of all land area. Map 2.1.7B and Table 2.1.7 illustrate each watershed and its impervious surface content.

Air Quality As part of the 10-county Atlanta region, Fayette County is in what planners refer to as nonattainment status with regard to the Clean Air Act, meaning it does not meet federal air quality standards for ozone and fi ne particulate matter. The Clean Air Act and Amendments of 1990 defi ne such an area as a locality where air pollution levels persistently exceed National Ambient Air Quality Standards. Designating an area as nonattainment is a formal rulemaking process, and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) normally takes this action only after air quality standards have been exceeded for several consecutive years. Nonattainment areas are given a classifi cation based on the severity of the violation and the type of air quality standard they exceed. Violations of these standards and subsequent nonattainment classifi cation can disqualify a region from receiving federal highway funding. This means that on roads eligible for federal funding assistance, up to 80 percent of the total project funding can be withheld as a consequence of not meeting these federal standards. However, demonstrated progress in improving air quality and returning to attainment, documented in a conformity determination, can be made for transportation plans and programs within air quality nonattainment areas in order for federal transportation funding to be allocated, without restriction, to the region. The most recent conformity determination was provided as part of ARC’s Envision6 regional transportation plan and the transportation improvement program for 2008-2013. A positive conformity determination was provided for both the ozone and particulate matter standards in October 2007. Though Fayette County, by virtue of its lower population and lower intensity of urbanization, does not generate moving vehicle emissions to the same degree that other metropolitan counties do, its proximity to the Hartsfi eld-Jackson Airport places the northern part of the County near a major concentration of emissions and urban heat island.
