Summary
One of Imperial County's unique features is also its greatest challenge when trying to improve air quality. Imperial County is one of California's international gateways, sharing a border with Mexicali, Mexico, whose metropolitan area has more than five times the population of the entire county. In particular, the city of Calexico shares a border with the densely populated city of Mexicali, Mexico. The 2018 Annual PM2.5 SIP relies on the provisions in CAA Section 179(B) to demonstrate that Imperial County is in attainment of the 2012 PM2.5 Annual standard "but for" emissions emanating across the international border. The 2018 Annual PM2.5 SIP Weight-of-Evidence analysis demonstrates attainment of the 2012 Annual standard of 12.0 micrograms by the Imperial County PM2.5 nonattainment area in the absence of emissions from Mexico.
