    Ian MacMillan

    (909) 396-3244
    Proposed Rule 403.2 (PR 403.2) reduces potential fugitive dust impacts to communities near large roadway projects. PR 403.2 would prohibit certain large roadway project activities that generate dust and are in close proximity to sensitive receptors and areas of public exposure. PR 403.2 would also include additional requirements to control dust, notification to nearby receptors, project signage, and recordkeeping. This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Determining that Proposed Rule 403.2 – Fugitive Dust Emissions from Large Roadway Projects, is exempt from the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act; and 2) Adopt Rule 403.2 – Fugitive Dust Emissions from Large Roadway Projects. (Reviewed: Stationary Source Committee, March 18, April 15 and May 20, 2022)

  • 27. Determine That South Los Angeles Community Emissions Reduction Plan Is Exempt from CEQA, and Adopt South Los Angeles Community Emissions Reduction Plan

    Kathryn Higgins

    (909) 396-3309
    Assembly Bill 617 (AB 617) requires air districts to adopt a Community Emissions Reduction Plan (CERP) within one year of CARB selection. CARB selected the South Los Angeles (SLA) Community in February 2021, but the CERP adoption date was extended by CARB from February 2022 to June 2022 to allow for additional time to collaborate with the community. The SLA CERP was developed with three community co-lead organizations: Physicians for Social Responsibility-Los Angeles, Strategic Concepts in Organizing and Policy Education, and Watts Clean Air and Energy Committee. This CERP is designed to reduce emissions and exposure to air pollution by addressing priorities identified by the community. The CERP also includes an implementation schedule and enforcement actions. The Community Steering Committee and community co-leads’ partnership and engagement have been critical throughout the development of the SLA CERP. This action is to adopt the Resolution to: 1) Determine that the SLA CERP is exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act; and 2) Adopt the SLA CERP. (Reviewed: Stationary Source Committee, May 20, 2022)

    28. Determine That NOx RECLAIM Trading Credit Prices Exceed Applicable Thresholds in Rule 2002 and Determine That Non-Usable/Non-Tradable RTCs Will Not be Converted to Usable/Non-Tradable RTCs for RECLAIM Compliance Year 2022

    Michael Krause

    (909) 396-2706
    Rule 2002 establishes procedures in the event that NOx RECLAIM Trading Credit (RTC) prices exceed $22,500 per ton based on the 12-month rolling average or exceed $35,000 per ton based on the 3-month rolling average. Rule 2002 procedures include an assessment of the RECLAIM program and a determination as to whether to convert Non-tradable/Non-usable NOx RTCs to Tradable/Usable NOx RTCs valid for the period in which the RTC price is found to have exceeded the applicable threshold. The January 2022 and April 2022 RTC price reports showed that the 12-month and 3-month rolling average price for Compliance Year 2022 NOx RTCs exceeded the applicable RTC price thresholds. However, staff found that facilities are already beginning planned emission control projects to comply with landing rules and that the socioeconomic impacts of increased NOx RTC prices are relatively minimal. This action is to adopt the Resolution to: 1) Determine that NOx RTC prices exceed the applicable thresholds in Rule 2002; and 2) Determine to Take No Further Action Regarding Converting Non-Usable/Non-Tradeable RTCs Valid for RECLAIM Compliance Year 2022.
