Rule 1158

Rule 1158 Studies of Air Quality Near Petroleum Coke, Coal and Sulfur Storage, Handling and Shipment Facilities.

In June 1999, the South Coast AQMD amended Rule 1158, which applies to the storage, handling, and shipment of petroleum coke, coal and sulfur.  Amended Rule 1158 further reduced particulate emissions from these sources.  Subsequently, California State legislation (AB 1775 -- Lowenthal) added a Health and Safety Code section (Section 40459) which calls for the AQMD to maintain a program of monitoring particulates within the Port of Los Angeles and the Port of Long Beach, and assess prevalent coke particulates and improvements in air quality.

To monitor the efficacy of the Rule and address legislative requirements, the AQMD initiated a series of "Rule 1158 Follow-Up Studies".  This page contains reports of a series of ongoing studies of the particulate matter and elemental carbon concentrations measured in the greater Long Beach/Wilmington area.  The studies are each about 20 to 30 pages in length, and they can be downloaded by clicking on the appropriate title below.
