The Ministry of Environment has produced these guidelines to insure that dispersion modelling conducted for the ministry is appropriate for the needs of the application; is applied correctly and consistently using accepted scientific techniques; and is used to reliably inform air quality management decisions. From a broad ministry perspective, the guidelines are intended to further progress toward one of the ministry’s goals: “Provide effective and efficient planning and support for ministry programs” through two identified strategies (Ministry Service Plan 2004): (1) continue to guide and support the integration of science and risk management in ministry decision making, and (2) effectively communicate expectations and results to staff, clients and the public. The guidelines include the ministry’s expectations for air quality dispersion modeling; identification of the level-of-effort recommended for a modelling study; selection of an appropriate dispersion model; a stepwise approach to good modelling practic
