Volkswagen Settlement


Oklahoma has been initially allocated approximately $21 million dollars from the Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Trust Agreement to be used towards reducing nitrogen oxide emissions from the transportation sector. DEQ has been designated as lead agency for the administration of these funds.

On December 5, 2017 DEQ conducted a public meeting to collect information from stakeholders and receive comments concerning the BMP. The Department will refer to received comments as a resource in the development of the BMP. This comment period is now closed. After the BMP has been written, it will be made available on this website, and there will be another opportunity for public comment. For information on the trust agreement, funding-eligible projects, presentation slides, audio, and written comments from the December 5 meeting, and more, visit our VW page. Updated January 4, 2018

The 2016 Air Data Report has now been posted. The report charts air quality monitoring data collected at 26 monitors for criteria pollutants. The report shows Oklahoma is in attainment for all the NAAQS, along with analysis of each pollutant. View the 2016 Report... Updated September 19, 2017

Permit By Rule for Emergency Engine Facilities


Effective September 15, 2016, a newly-promulgated Permit by Rule (PBR) is available OAC 252:100-7-60.6 for facilities that must obtain a permit because of installation of an emergency engine that is subject to a federal standard. Use new Form #100-224 to register under the PBR. Updated September 14, 2016



Revisions to Test Methods, Performance Specifications, and Testing Regulations for Air Emission Sources


Final Rule Signed August 5, 2016: The final "revisions" rule allows source owners and operators of stationary spark ignition internal combustion engines to continue to use Methods 18 and 320 and ASTM D6348-03 to measure VOC but requires reporting of all QA/QC data. See Subpart JJJJ, Section 60.4245(d) and Table 2.

    For Method 18, results from Sections 8.4 and must be reported.

    For Method 320, results from Sections 8.6.2, 9.0, and 13.0 must be reported.

    For ASTM D6348-03, results of all QA/QC procedures in Annexes 1-7 must be reported.

In the preamble to the final "revisions" rule, EPA states that it will revisit the above decision and make a subsequent determination of the appropriateness of the use of Method 320 and/or ASTM D6348 during the first risk and technology review evaluation for stationary spark ignition internal combustion engines.
