    Wayne Nastri

    (909) 396-3131
    Jain (909) 396-2804

    A. Adopt Executive Officer’s FY 2020-21 Proposed Goals and Priority Objectives and Proposed Budget

    The Executive Officer's Proposed Goals and Priority Objectives, and Proposed Budget for FY 2020-21 have been developed and are recommended for adoption. The Budget and Work Program for FY 2020-21 represents input over the past several months from Board members, staff, and the public. This year’s process will include meetings of the Budget Advisory Committee and two budget workshops, one for the public to be held on April 7, 2020 and the Board on April 10, 2020. The Proposed Budget incorporates, pursuant to Rule 320, an increase of most fees by 2.8 percent consistent with the Consumer Price Index; however, staff is proposing to credit back this year’s automatic CPI increase to counter the economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. This action is to adopt the Executive Officer’s Proposed Goals and Priority Objectives, and Proposed Budget for FY 2020-21. (Review: Special Board Meeting/Budget Study Session, April 10, 2020)


    Rees (909) 396-2856

    B. Determine That Proposed Amendments to Rule 445 – Wood-Burning Devices, Are Exempt from CEQA and Amend Rule 445

    Proposed amendments to Rule 445 will satisfy U.S. EPA contingency measure requirements and Control Measure BCM-09 from the 2016 AQMP. The threshold for no-burn days would be incrementally lowered automatically for each subsequent final determination by the U.S. EPA of a failure to meet an applicable Clean Air Act milestone. The proposed amendments would also reduce ambient PM2.5 by expanding the criteria for Basin-wide wood-burning curtailments. Other minor amendments include additional definitions for terms used in the rule, and revisions to improve rule implementation and clarify existing requirements. This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Determining that the proposed amendments to Rule 445 – Wood Burning Devices, are exempt from the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act; and 2) Amending Rule 445 – Wood-Burning Devices. (Reviewed: Stationary Source Committee, March 20, 2020)

    3. Recognize Revenue and Execute Contract to Assess Emissions Impacts of Hydrogen-Natural Gas Fuel Blend on Natural Gas Engines

    Matt Miyasato

    (909) 396-3249
    Past studies have shown that the addition of hydrogen in natural gas may result in lower engine emissions when combined with optimized engine calibration. The University of California, Riverside (UCR)/CE-CERT, along with SoCalGas and Cummins Westport Inc., has proposed a research project to assess the criteria pollutant and GHG impacts of hydrogen-natural gas fuel blends on near-zero emissions NOx heavy-duty natural gas engines. These actions are to recognize revenue up to $305,000 from SoCalGas into the Clean Fuels Program Fund (31) and execute a contract with UCR/CE-CERT in an amount not to exceed $535,000 from the Clean Fuels Program Fund (31). (No Committee Review)

  • 4. Recognize Revenue, Implement Truck Trade Down Program and Amend Award

    Matt Miyasato

    (909) 396-3249
    In July 2019, the Board recognized $1,500,000 in FY 19 U.S. EPA Diesel Emissions Reduction Act (DERA) funds and awarded those funds to a Market Acceleration Program (MAP) for near-zero emissions heavy-duty natural gas trucks. Subsequently, U.S. EPA advised that an additional $789,581 in funds was awarded to the South Coast AQMD. In December 2019, the Board approved a contract with Metropolitan Stevedore Company dba Metro Ports to replace one diesel switcher locomotive using Community Air Protection Program funds, noting FY 18 DERA funds were anticipated to cost-share this project. These actions are to recognize $789,581 in FY 19 DERA funds into the Clean Fuels Program Fund (31) and $719,500 in FY 18 DERA funds into the Advanced Technology, Outreach and Education Fund (17), implement a Truck Trade Down Program, and amend an award for replacement of one diesel switcher locomotive. (No Committee Review)

  • 5. Recognize and Transfer Funds, Execute and Amend Agreements for Installation and Maintenance of Air Filtration Systems, and Reimburse General Fund for Administrative Costs

    Matt Miyasato

    U.S. EPA is executing two Supplemental Environmental Projects (SEPs) for school air filtration and CARB is executing three SEPS, one for schools and two for a residential air filtration pilot studies. Both agencies have asked South Coast AQMD to act as the SEP administrator to install and maintain air filtration systems at schools and residences in environmental justice communities. This action is to recognize up to $146,250 from U.S. EPA and $1,205,300 from CARB into the Air Filtration Fund (75) for these SEPs. These actions are to also execute agreements to install and maintain air filtration systems and to provide residential stipends in an amount not to exceed $1,283,973, execute or amend access agreements with local school districts, amend contracts to purchase additional filters using unspent administrative funds, and reimburse the General Fund for administrative costs up to $67,577 for SEP administration.

To determine total cost of ownership, a comparative evaluation of maintenance costs between natural gas and diesel trucks needs to be performed. These actions are to recognize revenue up to $150,000 from SoCalGas into the Clean Fuels Program Fund (31) and execute a contract to perform a comparative evaluation of vehicle maintenance costs for on-road heavy-duty vehicles in an amount not to exceed $250,000 from the Clean Fuels Program Fund (31).

  • 9. Reallocate Funds, Execute Contract and Add/Delete Positions to Quantify and Characterize Fugitive VOC Emissions Near and Around Refineries

    Jason Low

    (909) 396-2269
    South Coast AQMD is conducting comprehensive air pollution measurements near refineries and surrounding communities as part of the AB 617 and Rule 1180 programs. The Community Emissions Reduction Plan for the Wilmington/Carson/West Long Beach community has a measure to reduce NOx, SOx, VOCs and other associated toxics emissions from refineries by 50 percent between 2020 and 2030. To assess this target, there is a need to quantify and characterize fugitive VOC emissions near and around refineries in 2020 as well as to assess progress in the future once a baseline has been established. As part of Rule 1180, staff will be operating and maintaining a network of community air monitoring stations throughout the Basin. These actions are to reallocate up to $500,000 to Science & Technology Advancement’s FYs 2019-20 and 2020-21 Budgets, execute a contract, and approve the addition and deletion of Rule 1180 positions to perform this work.

The Board Resolution for the adoption of Rule 1118.1 directed staff to conduct a technical assessment to further investigate beneficial uses of gas as an alternative to flaring at non-refinery facilities. Funding is needed to contract with an engineering consultant that will be selected through a competitive bidding process to conduct this technical assessment for an amount not to exceed $75,000.
