DEQ has continued to collect air quality information in the Billings airshed since 2010 and was able to demonstrate Billings is in compliance with this standard. In 2015 DEQ submitted monitoring data and analysis to EPA, along with a request to redesignate the area from “nonattainment” to “attainment.”
