    At its November 4, 2016 meeting, the Board approved the release of an RFP for AB 2588 Consultant Assistance to provide support to staff in the review of AB 2588 and Rule 1402 reports over the next four years. Eight proposals were received and scored considering both technical merit and costs. This action is to award contracts to six of the eight firms who responded to the RFP. Funds for this project, in an amount not to exceed a total of $500,000, will be allocated from the Air Toxics Special Revenue Fund (15) over an initial two year period.  Following the initial two year period, the Executive Officer will have the option to extend each contract once per year for the next two years, and increase the total amount allocated up to another $250,000 per year, for a total cost up to $1,000,000 spread between all six firms over the full four year period of these contracts.  The Air Toxics Special Revenue Fund is specifically designed to provide funds to manage the AB2588 program from fees paid by AB2588 facilities.

    ' ' For the past 14 years, the SCAQMD has implemented an Electric Lawn Mower Exchange Program.  Over the last two years, the Program has experienced declining exchanges, likely due to the severe drought across California and market saturation.  Staff proposes to modify the Program by offering a year-round Electric Lawn Mower Rebate Program on a first-come, first-served basis, where participants would receive a rebate through an online application process after purchasing a new battery-electric lawn mower and scrapping their old gasoline-powered lawn mower at a participating licensed dismantler. This action is to approve the year-round Electric Lawn Mower Rebate Program on a first-come, first-served basis and authorize the Executive Officer to issue rebates to program participants in a total amount not to exceed $250,000 from the Rule 2202 Air Quality Investment Fund (27).

    Philip Fine

    909-396-2239
    (Continued from the February 3, 2017 Board Meeting for Board Deliberation and Action Only)
    The Air Quality Management Plan (AQMP) is the legally enforceable blueprint for how the SCAQMD air basins will meet and maintain federal and State air quality standards.  The 2016 AQMP has been developed in partnership with CARB, U.S. EPA, SCAG, and stakeholders throughout the region, including input from local governments, environmental organizations, academia, and the business community. The 2016 AQMP identifies control measures needed to demonstrate attainment with the federal 2008 8-hour ozone standard by 2031, the 2012 annual PM2.5 standard by 2025, and the 24-hour PM2.5 standard by 2019 in the South Coast Air Basin and the 2008 8-hour ozone standard by 2026 in the Coachella Valley.  In addition, the 2016 AQMP provides revisions to previous plans regarding attainment of the 1997 8-hour ozone standard by 2023 and the revoked 1-hour ozone standard by 2022.  Further, Appendix I (Health Effects) includes a report on the health impacts of particulate matter air pollution in the South Coast Air Basin.  (Reviewed: Mobile Source Committee, January 22, March 18, April 15, May 20, June 17, July 22, September 16 and October 21, 2016, and January 20, 2017)

  • 36. Adopt Rule 1430 – Control of Emissions from Metal Grinding Operations at Metal Forging Facilities

    Susan Nakamura

    909-396-3105
    Proposed Rule 1430 will reduce particulate matter and toxic emissions and help to reduce odors from metal grinding and cutting operations at forging facilities. Metal grinding and cutting operations are currently exempt from SCAQMD permits. Based on monitoring, sampling, and site visits, metal grinding at forging facilities can be a significant source of metal particulate emissions, some of which are also toxic air contaminants. The proposed rule will prohibit forging facilities from conducting grinding and cutting operations in the open air and includes requirements to vent metal grinding and cutting operations to emission control devices, to meet a specified emission standard for the emission control devices, conduct metal grinding and cutting operations in a building enclosure to reduce fugitive emissions, and implement a series of housekeeping measures to further minimize fugitive emissions. This action is to adopt the resolution: 1) Certifying the Final Environmental Assessment for Proposed Rule 1430 – Control of Emissions from Metal Grinding Operations at Metal Forging Facilities; and 2) Adopting Rule 1430 – Control of Emissions from Metal Grinding Operations at Metal Forging Facilities.

    A Draft Financial Incentives Funding Action Plan was prepared to help identify new revenue sources that the SCAQMD could pursue for incentive funding programs to help accelerate the turnover of existing vehicles and equipment to zero and near-zero emission technologies and help the region meet federal air quality standards. The Draft Action Plan includes a discussion of potential funding opportunities, public process, and a proposed schedule of activities to be initiated over the next year. The proposed activities include a schedule for staff to work with stakeholders through a public process to identify a set of funding opportunities to pursue, educating the state legislature and Congressional members on the funding needs of the region, and reporting to the Board on progress. This action is to seek the Board’s approval on the schedule of activities proposed in the Draft Action Plan and have staff initiate the activities based on the Board’s direction.  (Reviewed: Mobile Source Committee, July 22 and October 21, 2016; and Governing Board, January 6, 2017)
