  • 2. Set Public Hearings to Consider Adoption of and/or Amendments to SCAQMD Rules and Regulations

    Wayne Nastri

    (909) 396-3131

    January 4, 2019:

    A. Determine that Proposed Amendments to Rule 1325 – Federal PM2.5 New Source Review Program Are Exempt from CEQA and Amend Rule 1325
    Susan Nakamura, 909-396-3105

    Rule 1325 establishes requirements for new and modified sources to ensure compliance with federal PM2.5 New Source Review requirements.  Rule 1325 was amended in 2016 to expand the definition of “precursor” to include VOC and ammonia (NH3) emissions, as required under U.S. EPA’s 2016 implementation rule for PM2.5 State Implementation Plans and a court decision requiring states to regulate PM2.5 under the same part of the Federal Clean Air Act as PM10.  The 2016 amendment expanded the definition of precursor, however, it did not expand the definition of “regulated NSR pollutant” to explicitly reference the PM2.5 precursors VOC and NH3.  Proposed Amended Rule 1325 will address this deficiency by referencing "precursor" in the definition of “regulated NSR pollutant”.  In addition, other revisions are made to improve clarity.  This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Determining that the proposed amendments to Rule 1325 - Federal PM2.5 New Source Review Program are exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act, and 2) Amending Rule 1325  – Federal PM2.5 New Source Review Program. (Reviewed: Stationary Source Committee, November 16, 2018)


    February 1, 2019:

    B. Determine that Proposed Amendments to Rule 1403 - Asbestos Emissions from Renovation/Demolition Activities Are Exempt from CEQA and Amend Rule 1403
    Sarah Rees 909-396-2856

    Proposed amendments to Rule 1403 will provide revisions to further clarify existing rule requirements, enhance enforceability, and align the requirements with the applicable U.S. EPA NESHAP and with other state and local agency regulations.  The proposed amendments include clarifying who is covered by the rule, standard and emergency notification procedures, specifying information to be included in survey reports, and establishing minimum sampling requirements for determining whether materials are asbestos-containing. This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Determining that the proposed amendments to Rule 1403 - Asbestos Emissions from Renovation/Demolition Activities are exempt from the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act; and 2) Amending Rule 1403 - Asbestos Emissions from Renovation/Demolition Activities.  (Reviewed: Stationary Source Committee, November 16, 2018)

    27. Certify Final Environmental Assessment and Adopt Rule 1118.1 - Control of Emissions from Non-Refinery Flares

    Susan Nakamura

    909-396-3105

    Staff is recommending that the public hearing on this item be continued to the January 4, 2019 Board Meeting.

    Proposed Rule 1118.1 applies to RECLAIM and non-RECLAIM facilities that operate non-refinery flares located at landfills, wastewater treatment plants, oil and gas production facilities, organic liquid loading stations, and tank farms. The proposed rule will implement, in part, the 2016 AQMP Control Measure CMB-03 - Emission Reductions from Non-Refinery Flares and facilitate the transition of the NOx RECLAIM program to a command-and-control regulatory structure.  Proposed Rule 1118.1 establishes emission limits for NOx, VOC, and CO for new flares, and a capacity threshold for existing flares. In addition, some new flares at oil and gas production facilities will have additional limitations.  Proposed Rule 1118.1 also establishes provisions for source testing, monitoring, reporting, recordkeeping, and provides exemptions for low-use and low-emitting flares. This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Certifying the Final Environmental Assessment for Proposed Rule 1118.1 - Control of Emissions from Non-Refinery Flares, and 2) Adopting Proposed Rule 1118.1 - Control of Emissions from Non-Refinery Flares.  (Reviewed: Stationary Source Committee, October 19, 2018, and To Be Reviewed: December 19, 2018)
  • 28. Certify Final Subsequent Environmental Assessment and Amend Rules 1146, 1146.1, 1146.2 and Adopt Rule 1100

    Susan Nakamura

    909-396-3105
    The adoption Resolution of the 2016 AQMP directed staff to achieve additional NOx emission reductions and to transition the RECLAIM program to a command-and-control regulatory structure as soon as practicable. Proposed Amended Rules 1146, 1146.1 and 1146.2 updates NOx emission limits for boilers, heaters, and steam generators applicable to these rules. The revised NOx emission limits represent BARCT and apply to RECLAIM and non-RECLAIM facilities.  Proposed Rule 1100 establishes the compliance schedule for equipment at RECLAIM facilities that are subject to Proposed Amended Rules 1146 and 1146.1. PAR 1146.2 includes the compliance schedule for equipment regulated under this rule.  This action is to adopt the Resolution:  1) Certifying the Final Subsequent Environmental Assessment for Proposed Amended Rules 1146 - Emissions of Oxides of Nitrogen from Industrial, Institutional and Commercial Boilers, Steam Generators, and Process Heaters; 1146.1 - Emissions of Oxides of Nitrogen from Small Industrial, Institutional, and Commercial Boilers, Steam Generators, and Process Heaters; 1146.2 - Emissions of Oxides of Nitrogen from Large Water Heaters and Small Boilers and Process Heaters; and Proposed Rule 1100 - Implementation Schedule for NOx Facilities; 2) Amending Rules 1146, 1146.1, and 1146.2; and 3) Adopting Rule 1100.  (Reviewed: Stationary Source Committee, April 20 and October 19, 2018)

  • 29. Determine that Proposed Rule 1407.1 – Emissions of Toxic Air Contaminants from Chromium Alloy Melting Operations Is Exempt from CEQA and Adopt Rule 1407.1 (Continued from November 2, 2018 Board Meeting)

    Susan Nakamura

    909-396-3105

    Staff is recommending that the public hearing on this item be withdrawn from consideration.

    Proposed Rule 1407.1 is an information gathering rule that will require a one-time source test and submittal of information to quantify arsenic, cadmium, chromium, hexavalent chromium and nickel emissions from chromium alloy melting operations. Information obtained will be used to establish emission standards and other provisions. Proposed Rule 1407.1 also includes requirements for metals composition testing, recordkeeping, and reporting. This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Determining that Proposed Rule 1407.1 – Toxic Air Contaminants from Chromium Alloy Melting Operations is exempt from the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act; and 2) Adopting Rule 1407.1 – Toxic Air Contaminants from Chromium Alloy Melting Operations.  (Reviewed: Stationary Source Committee, September 21, and November 16, 2018)
