Regional Haze State Implementation Plan (SIP) Revision for protecting and improving visibility levels in New Jersey’s Class I Area, the Brigantine Wilderness Area of the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge

Date Posted: August 22, 2019

Last Update: May 2020

This SIP revision is to protect and improve visibility levels in New Jersey’s Class I Area, the Brigantine Wilderness Area of the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge. This SIP revision establishes the progress goal for the second planning period (2018 – 2028) for the Brigantine Wilderness Area to help achieve the goal of reaching natural background visibility levels by 2064. This SIP revision also addresses other mandatory SIP elements for regional haze and related issues.
