SWAPE has extensive experience performing air dispersion modeling using the U.S. EPA software, AERMOD, and utilize the most current version of the Breeze AERMOD air quality modeling system. We also perform air modeling using other U.S. EPA-approved software packages, including AERSCREEN, ISC, SCREEN3, and other dispersion models. We have extensive experience utilizing air models for evaluating criteria air pollutant emissions and greenhouse gas emissions from construction sites for purposes of CEQA and evaluating the adequacy of proposed mitigation actions.
