  • 2. Set Public Hearings November 3, 2017 to Consider Adoption of and/or Amendments to SCAQMD Rules and Regulations:

    Wayne Nastri (909) 396-3131
    A. Certify Final Environmental Assessment and Adopt Proposed Rule 415 - Odors from Rendering Facilities
    Philip Fine (909) 396-2239

    PR 415 is designed to reduce odors from facilities conducting inedible rendering operations.  PR 415 is the result of a long-standing issue that was identified by the Working Group for the Clean Communities Plan in the pilot study area of Boyle Heights, a community near the City of Vernon rendering facilities.  PR 415 includes implementation of Best Management Practices, use of either permanent total enclosures or a closed system for process areas that have high potential for odors, as well as other measures to control odors from rendering operations.  This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Certifying the Final Environmental Assessment for Proposed Rule 415 - Odors from Rendering Facilities; and 2) Adopting Rule 415 – Odors from Rendering Facilities. (Reviewed: Stationary Source Committee, February 20, 2015 and September 15, 2017)
     
    B. Certify Final Environmental Assessment and Amend Rule 1420 – Emissions Standard for Lead
    Susan Nakamura (909) 396-3105

    Rule 1420 was adopted in September 1992 with the purpose of reducing lead emissions from non-vehicular sources. On October 15, 2008, the U.S. EPA lowered the National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) for lead from 1.5 µg/m3 to 0.15 µg/m3 averaged over a rolling 3-month period to protect public health and the environment.  PAR 1420 – Emissions Standard for Lead will further protect public health from exposure to lead from facilities not covered under recently adopted Rules 1420.1 and 1420.2, and to help ensure continued attainment of the lead NAAQS.  The SCAQMD staff is proposing an initial ambient air lead concentration limit of 0.150 µg/m3 averaged over any consecutive 30 days which will be lowered to a final limit of 0.100 µg/m3 consistent with Rules 1420.1 and 1420.2.  The proposed rule also establishes requirements for enclosures, revisions to the point source lead emission limits, periodic source testing, conditional ambient air monitoring, and enhanced housekeeping.  This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Certifying the Final Environmental Assessment for Proposed Amended Rule 1420 – Emissions Standard for Lead; and 2) Amending Rule 1420 – Emissions Standard for Lead.  (Reviewed: Stationary Source Committee, September 15, 2017)
