  • 2. Set Public Hearings January 10, 2020 to Consider Adoption of and/or Amendments to South Coast AQMD Rules and Regulations

    Wayne Nastri

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

    A. Determine That Proposed Amendments to Rule 102 – Definition of Terms, Are Exempt from CEQA and Amend Rule 102

    Rule 102 defines the terms used in South Coast Air Quality Management District rules and regulations. Rule 102 defines the “District” as the abbreviation for the South Coast Air Quality Management District. Staff is proposing to add the “South Coast AQMD” as another abbreviation for the South Coast Air Quality Management District to more distinctly describe the agency and the jurisdiction under our authority. The use of “South Coast AQMD” instead of “District” as an abbreviation of South Coast Air Quality Management District will be included in new and amended rules; therefore, the new definition must be included in Rule 102. This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Determining that the proposed amendments to Rule 102 - Definition of Terms, are exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act, and 2) Amending Rule 102 – Definition of Terms. (No Committee Review)

    B. Determine That Proposed Amendments to Rule 1100 – Implementation Schedule for NOx Facilities, Are Exempt from CEQA and Amend Rule 1100

    Proposed Amended Rule 1100 will modify the definition of “industry-specific category” to clarify the applicability as originally intended. This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Determining that the proposed amendments to Rule 1100 – Implementation Schedule for NOx Facilities, are Exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act; and 2) Amending Rule 1100 – Implementation Schedule for NOx Facilities. (No Committee Review)

  • Budget/Fiscal Impact

    3. Execute Contract to Demonstrate Fuel Cell Range-Extended Drayage Trucks

    Matt Miyasato

    (909) 396-3249
    In April 2017, the Board approved several projects for port handling equipment, including one with Vehicle Velocity Group, partnering with Efficient Drivetrains, Inc. (EDI), to develop and demonstrate one battery electric and three plug-in hybrid electric drayage trucks. Cummins Inc., which recently acquired EDI, proposes instead to develop and demonstrate four fuel cell range-extended drayage trucks. This action is to execute a contract with Cummins Inc. to develop and demonstrate four fuel cell range-extended drayage trucks in the amount of $3,568,300 from the Clean Fuels Fund (31), comprised of $2,985,995 in CEC pass-through revenue and $582,305 for South Coast AQMD’s cost-share. Cummins Inc. will provide the additional funds to make up the increased costs of the revised project. (Reviewed: Technology Committee, November 15, 2019; Recommended for Approval)

  • 4. Amend Contracts to Develop and Demonstrate Zero Emissions Drayage Trucks and Provide Project Implementation Assistance for Clean Fuels Projects and Execute Easement for Fleet Chargers

    Matt Miyasato

    (909) 396-3249
    In March 2016, the Board recognized revenue from CARB and other funding partners and awarded multiple contracts for a Zero Emissions Drayage Truck (ZEDT) Project. In October 2018, the Board amended those contracts to reallocate funds among the project partners; however, an additional reallocation of funds is needed at this time. These actions are to authorize the Executive Officer to amend the four project partner contracts and a project implementation assistance contract, as needed, for the ZEDT Project and to redistribute funds among these five contracts as needed to ensure project completion. This action is to also amend a contract for project implementation support of Clean Fuels related projects adding up to $50,000 from the Clean Fuels Program Fund (31). In addition, in August 2018, staff applied for 30 fleet chargers through Southern California Edison’s Charge Ready Program, which requires the host to execute an easement. This action is to authorize the execution of the easement. (Reviewed: Technology Committee, November 15, 2019; Recommended for Approval)

  • 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

    (909) 396-3249
    The U.S. EPA and CARB are executing four Supplemental Environmental Projects (SEPs) and have asked South Coast AQMD to act as the SEP administrator to install and maintain air filtration systems at schools in environmental justice communities. South Coast AQMD will also be carrying out its own SEP. These actions are to recognize up to $316,000 for SEPs from U.S. EPA and CARB and transfer up to $45,000 from the General Fund for the South Coast AQMD SEP into the Air Filtration Fund (75). These actions are to also execute agreements to install and maintain air filtration systems in an amount not to exceed $345,200, 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 $15,800 for SEP administration. (Reviewed: Technology Committee, November 15, 2019; Recommended for Approval)

  • 6. Adopt Resolution, Execute Contracts, Amend Awards, Transfer Funds and Reimburse Administrative Costs for Carl Moyer and Other Programs

    Naveen Berry

    (909) 396-2363
    In June 2019, the Program Announcement for the Year 21 Carl Moyer Program closed. This year, in addition to the traditional sources of Carl Moyer SB 1107 and AB 923 funds, funding from the Community Air Protection Program, State Reserve and FARMER will also be available to fund Carl Moyer projects. In addition, updates to improve the Carl Moyer online application system are necessary. These actions are to: 1) adopt a Resolution recognizing up to $86 million in Community Air Protection Program funds; 2) execute contracts for Year 21 Carl Moyer Program, SOON Provision, State Reserve, FARMER and Community Air Protection Programs; 3) amend a “Year 20” SOON Provision contract award; 4) authorize the Executive Officer to redistribute the source of funds for these contracts to ensure program liquidation targets are met; 5) amend a contract for the Carl Moyer online application system; 6) transfer $3 million from the Carl Moyer Program AB 923 Fund (80) to the Voucher Incentive Program Fund (59) for truck replacements; and 7) reimburse administrative costs related to implementing these incentive funds. (Reviewed: Technology Committee, November 15, 2019; Recommended for Approval)

    26. Determine That Proposed Amendments to Rule 1111 – Reduction of NOx Emissions from Natural-Gas-Fired, Fan-Type Central Furnaces, Are Exempt from CEQA and Amend Rule 1111

    Susan Nakamura

    (909) 396-3105
    Rule 1111 was amended in 2009 to require Ultra-Low NOx furnaces (14 ng/J) by 2014, and was subsequently amended to extend the compliance date to October 1, 2019 with a mitigation fee. The proposed amended rule would provide an exemption to manufacture, distribute, sell, and install Low-NOx furnaces (40 ng/J) in higher altitudes until October 1, 2020. 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, are exempt from the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act; and 2) Amending Rule 1111 – Reduction of NOx Emissions from Natural-Gas-Fired, Fan-Type Central Furnaces. (Reviewed: Stationary Source Committee, November 15, 2019)

  • 27. Determine That Proposed Rule 1480 – Ambient Monitoring and Sampling of Metal Toxic Air Contaminants, Is Exempt from CEQA and Adopt Proposed Rule 1480

    Susan Nakamura

    (909) 396-3105
    Proposed Rule 1480 establishes a process to require a facility to conduct ambient monitoring and sampling of metal toxic air contaminants if the facility meets specific criteria. A facility that is designated will be required to submit a Monitoring and Sampling Plan and conduct ambient monitoring and sampling. The proposed rule includes an alternative monitoring and sampling provision where the facility can elect to have the South Coast AQMD conduct ambient monitoring and sampling for a fee. The proposed rule also has monitoring, reporting, and recordkeeping requirements, and provisions to reduce and cease monitoring and sampling provided certain criteria are met. This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Determining that Proposed Rule 1480 – Ambient Monitoring and Sampling of Metal Toxic Air Contaminants, is exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act; and 2) Adopting Rule 1480 – Ambient Monitoring and Sampling of Metal Toxic Air Contaminants. (Reviewed: Stationary Source Committee, October 18 and November 15, 2019)

  • 28. Determine That the Contingency Measure Plan for the 1997 8-Hour Ozone Standard Is Within the Scope of the March 2017 Final Program Environmental Impact Report for the 2016 AQMP Such That Neither a New Environmental Document nor a Subsequent Environmental Document Is Required Under CEQA, and Approve Contingency Measure Plan for the 1997 8-Hour Ozone Standard

    Sarah Rees

    (909) 396-2856
    The South Coast Air Basin (SCAB) is classified as an Extreme nonattainment area for the 1997 8-hour ozone national ambient air quality standard (NAAQS), with an attainment date of June 15, 2024. The attainment strategy in the 2016 AQMP includes both defined measures as well as “further deployment of cleaner technologies” measures, as allowed under the federal Clean Air Act (CAA) section 182(e)(5). Under CAA requirements, development and adoption of contingency measures are required no later than three years before the attainment date. The Contingency Measure Plan represents a joint strategy by South Coast AQMD and CARB to address the contingency measure requirements of CAA section 182(e)(5) for the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS for the SCAB. This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Determining that the Contingency Measure Plan for the 1997 8-hour ozone standard is within the scope of the March 2017 Final Program Environmental Impact Report for the 2016 AQMP such that neither a new environmental document nor a subsequent environmental document is required under the California Environmental Quality Act; and 2) Approving the Contingency Measure Plan for the 1997 8-hour ozone standard. (Reviewed: Mobile Source Committee, October 18 and November 15, 2019)

  • 29. Determine That Facility-Based Mobile Source Measure for Commercial Airports Is Exempt from CEQA and Approve Facility-Based Mobile Source Measure for Commercial Airports

    Sarah Rees

    (909) 396-2856
    In May 2018, the Board directed staff to pursue a voluntary Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) approach based on the airports’ development of Air Quality Improvement Plans (AQIPs) to implement the 2016 AQMP FacilityBased Mobile Source Measure (FBMSM) MOB-04 (Emission Reductions at Commercial Airports). All five commercial airports have developed their own AQIPs or Air Quality Improvement Measures (AQIMs) for non-aircraft airport emissions. The draft MOUs specify State Implementation Plan (SIP) creditable AQIP or AQIM measures, which the airports agree to implement. In addition, the airports will provide annual reports to South Coast AQMD. South Coast AQMD is making an enforceable commitment to U.S. EPA to achieve the emission reductions associated with implementation of these measures and seeks to obtain SIP credit. This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Determining that the Facility-Based Mobile Source Measure for Commercial Airports is exempt from the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act; and 2) Approving the FBMSM for Commercial Airports which includes the MOUs and the South Coast AQMD’s enforceable commitment. (Reviewed: Mobile Source Committee, October 18 and November 15, 2019).
