What standards are applied under the CAA?

Through the CAA, the EPA has established National Ambient Air Quality Standards (“NAAQS”) for certain “criteria” pollutants “common pollutants from an array of sources, which endanger public health and welfare.”   The EPA has also “set separate, technology-based standards for hazardous air pollutants, or HAPs, which cause serious and chronic human health effects, such as cancer.”
