    Proposed Amended Rules 218.2 and 218.3 will establish additional requirements for the installation and operation of CEMS at non-RECLAIM and former RECLAIM facilities. The proposed amendments include an option for dual range analyzers and add specifications when measuring mass emissions.

(Reviewed: Stationary Source Committee, June 17, 2022)

  • Items 4 through 7 -- Budget/Fiscal Impact


    4. Revise Financial Incentive Program to Reduce Emissions from Hexavalent Chromium Facilities, Issue Solicitations, and Authorize Executive Officer to Execute Contracts

    Michael Krause

    (909) 396-2706
    In January 2021, the Board established an incentive program and released a solicitation to utilize $5,040,000 of Community Air Protection program incentive funds for a program to reduce emissions from hexavalent chromium facilities, including funds for add-on air pollution controls for hexavalent chromium. CARB has subsequently released a draft regulatory proposal that includes future prohibitions of hexavalent chromium for metal plating and chromic acid anodizing operations. Accordingly, staff recommends revising the program and issuing a new solicitation that would provide incentive funds for hexavalent chromium facilities to switch to trivalent chromium plating technologies or other less toxic alternatives in lieu of hexavalent chromium. As with the previous effort, the program targets projects in environmental justice communities to achieve emission reductions beyond existing regulatory requirements, and further decreases community exposure to hexavalent chromium. This action is to: 1) Revise the incentive program to exclusively fund less toxic non-hexavalent chromium metal finishing alternatives; 2) Approve issuance of two Program Announcements, for facilities and contractors; 3) Authorize the Executive Officer to execute contracts with selected entities to implement the program; 4) Release unspent projects funds to be used by the back-up list of mobile source projects; and 5) Reimburse the General Fund for program administrative costs from the Community Air Protection AB 134 Fund (Fund 77). (Reviewed: Stationary Source Committee, June 17, 2022; Recommended for Approval)

  • 5. Amend Contract to Provide Short- and Long-Term Systems Development, Maintenance and Support Services

    Ron Moskowitz

    (909) 396-3329

    South Coast AQMD currently has contracts with several companies for short- and long-term systems development, maintenance, and support services.

This action is to amend contracts previously approved by the Board to add additional funding for needed development and maintenance work in an amount not to exceed $305,000 for AgreeYa Solutions, $55,000 for Prelude Systems, $210,000 for Sierra Cybernetics, and $297,000 for Varsun eTechnologies. Funding is available in Information Management’s FY 2022-23 Budget. (Reviewed: Administrative Committee, June 10, 2022; Recommended for Approval)

  • 6. Authorize Executive Officer to Initiate a Contract for Expert Technical Consulting Services with Zorik Pirveysian

    Sarah Rees

    (909) 396-2856

    This action is to authorize the Executive Officer to initiate a contract with retired South Coast AQMD employee Zorik Pirveysian, a former Planning and Rules Manager, to provide expert technical consulting services in support of pending planning efforts and rules.  This action also approves specific findings under Health and Safety Code Section 40426.7, which the Board is required to make before contracting with a former employee within 12 months of their retirement. Mr. Pirveysian separated from the South Coast AQMD on October 15, 2021. Due to substantial staff vacancies there is an immediate need for expert technical support regarding the development of the 2022 AQMP and the Indirect Source Rules. The total cost of the contract will not exceed the Executive Officer’s signing authority. (No Committee Review)
