  • 2. Set Public Hearing September 4, 2020 to Consider Adoption of and/or Amendments to South Coast AQMD Rules and Regulations

    Wayne Nastri

    (909) 396-3131
    Nakamura (909) 396-3105

    Determine That Proposed Amendments to Rule 1111 – Reduction of NOx Emissions from Natural-Gas-Fired, Fan-Type Central Furnaces, and Revisions to Clean Air Furnace Rebate Program Are Exempt from CEQA; Amend Rule 1111 and Approve Revisions to Clean Air Furnace Rebate Program

    Rule 1111 establishes a NOx emission limit of 14 ng/J for residential and commercial gas furnaces. Proposed Amended Rule 1111 will extend the compliance date from October 1, 2020 to September 30, 2021 for weatherized and high-altitude furnaces. The proposed amendments would also include an exemption for gas-electric dual fuel systems with low-NOx furnaces (40 ng/J) installed at higher altitudes until September 30, 2022. Staff is also recommending modifications to the Clean Air Furnace Rebate program. This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Determining that the proposed amendments to Rule 1111 – Reduction of NOx Emissions from Natural-Gas-Fired, Fan-Type Central Furnaces, and revisions to the Clean Air Furnace Rebate Program are exempt from the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act; 2) Amending Rule 1111 – Reduction of NOx Emissions from Natural-Gas-Fired, Fan-Type Central Furnaces; and 3) Revising the Clean Air Furnace Rebate program to incentivize installation of 14 ng/J furnaces and electric heat pumps.

  • Budget/Fiscal Impact


    3. Execute Contract to Investigate Effects of Ethanol-Gasoline Fuel Blend from Light-Duty Vehicles on Criteria Emissions and Secondary Organic Aerosol Formation

    Matt Miyasato

    (909) 396-3249
    In May 2019, the U.S. EPA approved the use of gasoline blended with up to 15 percent ethanol by volume (E15) for year-round use to support renewable fuel standards and energy independence. Past studies have shown that light-duty gasoline vehicles are significant sources of NOx, VOC and other precursor gas emissions, which together contribute to secondary organic aerosol (SOA) formation and higher PM2.5 in the South Coast Air Basin. CARB, along with the ethanol industry and the University of California, Riverside (UCR)/CE-CERT, has proposed a fuel study measuring criteria and toxic pollutant emissions from 20 gasoline vehicles using E15. This action is to execute a contract with UCR/CE-CERT to perform investigation of E15 gasoline fuel effects on criteria and toxic pollutant emissions and SOA formation from light-duty vehicles in amount not to exceed $200,000 from the Clean Fuels Program Fund (31). (Reviewed: Technology Committee, June 19, 2020; Recommended for Approval)

  • 4. Recognize Revenue, Appropriate Funds, and Issue Solicitations and Purchase Orders for Air Monitoring

    Jason Low

    (909) 396-2269
    South Coast AQMD is expected to receive grant funds up to $247,416 from the U.S. EPA for the NATTS Program. These actions are to recognize revenue and appropriate funds for the NATTS Monitoring Program, appropriate the remaining balances of the NATTS and PAMS Program funds, and issue solicitations and purchase orders for air monitoring equipment and utility vans. (Reviewed: Administrative Committee, June 12, 2020; Recommended for Approval)

  • 5. Amend Contract to Clarify Ownership of Equipment Funded by South Coast AQMD in High Efficiency and Low-NOx Combo Ribbon Burner Combustion System Demonstration

    Philip Fine

    (909) 396-2239
    In January 2019, the Board awarded a contract to Gas Technologies Institute (GTI) to demonstrate the EcoZone Low-NOx combustion system on an existing multi-zone baking oven located at a host site within the jurisdiction of the South Coast AQMD. This contract was part of 26 emission reduction and technology demonstration projects funded by South Coast AQMD Special Revenue Funds. This action is to amend the contract with GTI to clarify that GTI will own the equipment funded under the contract and does not increase the cost of this contract. (Reviewed: Administrative Committee, June 12, 2020; Recommended for Approval)

  • 6. Adopt Resolution Recognizing Funds for FY 2019-20 Carl Moyer State Reserve Program and Redistribute Funding Sources for Incentive Projects to Facilitate Timely Implementation

    Naveen Berry

    (909) 396-2363
    In April 2020, CARB approved allocations for the FY 2019-20 Carl Moyer “Year 22” State Reserve Program, including $4,275,655 to the South Coast AQMD for heavy-duty truck projects eligible pursuant to the On-Road Heavy-Duty Vehicle Voucher Incentive Program (VIP). This action is to adopt a Resolution recognizing up to $4.3 million in FY 2019-20 Carl Moyer State Reserve funds from CARB. The Board also periodically approves awards for incentive projects using a variety of funding sources. Some projects experience delays in contract executions and equipment purchase and deliveries, as well as cancellations due to a variety of varying issues. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and associated economic impacts, staff anticipates additional delays may forestall the liquidation of funds per mandated grant timelines. This action is to also allow the redistribution of funding sources, as needed, for incentive projects to facilitate timely liquidation. (Reviewed: Technology Committee, June 19, 2020; Recommended for Approval)

  • 7. Issue Program Announcement for Zero-Emission Class 8 Freight and Port Drayage Trucks Eligible Under Statewide Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Trust Program and Execute Contracts for Selected Eligible Projects

    Naveen Berry

    (909) 396-2363
    In November 2018 and March 2020, the Board recognized revenue up to $165 million to administer and implement two of the five project funding categories for the Volkswagen (VW) Environmental Mitigation Trust Program. For the category of Zero-Emission Class 8 Freight and Port Drayage Trucks, the first installment of VW project funds totaling $27 million is available for eligible vehicles selected through a first-come, first-served solicitation. This action is to issue a statewide Program Announcement for the VW Zero-Emission Class 8 Freight and Port Drayage Trucks category totaling $27 million for eligible vehicles selected on a first-come, first-served basis. The solicitation will be released upon Board approval, but applications will be accepted beginning August 18, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. PST. This action is to also authorize the Executive Officer to enter into contracts for eligible projects selected through this solicitation. (Reviewed: Technology Committee, June 19, 2020; Recommended for Approval)

  • 8. Issue RFP for Qualified Installers of Global Positioning Devices for Marine Vessel Projects

    Naveen Berry

    (909) 396-2363
    South Coast AQMD requires all marine vessel engine repowering projects funded by the Carl Moyer Program to install a Global Positioning System (GPS) on the vessel in order to monitor operation within South Coast AQMD’s jurisdictional waters. These marine vessel projects are required to operate at least 75 percent of the time in South Coast AQMD’s jurisdictional waters throughout the contract life. However, South Coast AQMD’s contract with the previous installer has expired. This action is to issue an RFP soliciting bids from qualified vendors for the purchase, installation, tracking and monitoring of GPS devices equipped with electronic monitoring units on marine vessels funded by the Carl Moyer Program. (Reviewed: Technology Committee, June 19, 2020; Recommended for Approval)

  • 9. Establish a List of Prequalified Counsel to Represent and Advise South Coast AQMD Hearing Board

    Bayron Gilchrist

The RFP was issued jointly to limit costs.  The evaluation of responding firms has been completed.
