Eagle River - Particulate Matter


Photo by Glynn Cater

Eagle River, Alaska was designated a non-attainment for PM10 (dust) in 1987 due to many unpaved roads in the area. Nearly all the gravel roads were paved in the early 1990s, which resulted in Eagle River being reclassified as moderate upon enactment of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990.

On October 15, 1991 Alaska submitted a PM10 attainment plan and on August 13, 1993, it was approved by the EPA. Currently, Eagle River is classified as a "non-attainment" area and is currently working to apply for re-designation to a “limited-maintenance” area.
