  • 2. Set Public Hearings July 12, 2019 to Consider Adoption of and/or Amendments to South Coast AQMD Rules and Regulations

    Wayne Nastri

    (909) 396-3131
    Fine (909) 396-2239

    A. Determine That Proposed Amendment to Rule 301 – Permitting and Associated Fees, Is Exempt from CEQA; Amend Rule 301; and Submit Rule 301 to CARB for Submission into SIP

    As part of its review of the 2016 AQMP, U.S. EPA has recently requested that Rule 301 be amended to include a requirement that facilities submitting emission reports certify that the information is accurate to the best knowledge of the individual submitting and certifying the report. Facilities already certify their emission reports in practice, and the proposed minor amendment will now place this requirement into the rule. This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Determining that the proposed amendment to Rule 301 – Permitting and Associated Fees, is exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act; 2) Amending Rule 301- Permitting and Associated Fees; and 3) Directing the Executive Officer to submit Rule 301 to CARB for submission into the SIP. (Review: Stationary Source Committee, June 21, 2019)


    Nakamura (909) 396-3105

    B. Determine That Proposed Amendments to Rule 2001 – Applicability, Are Exempt from CEQA and Amend Rule 2001

    On October 5, 2018, the Board adopted amendments to Rule 2001 that incorporated a provision to allow facilities to opt-out of the RECLAIM program. U.S. EPA is recommending that facilities remain in RECLAIM until all the rules associated with the transition to a command-and-control regulatory structure have been adopted and approved into the SIP. To address U.S. EPA’s comments, Proposed Amended Rule 2001 will remove the opt-out provision so that facilities cannot exit RECLAIM. This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Determining that the proposed amendments to Rule 2001 – Applicability, are exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act, and 2) Amending Rule 2001 - Applicability. (Reviewed: Stationary Source Committee, May 17, 2019)


    Rees (909) 396-2856

    C. Determine That Proposed Amendments to Regulation IX - Standards of Performance for New Stationary Sources, and Regulation X – National Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants, Are Exempt from CEQA and Amend Regulations IX and X

    Regulations IX and X are periodically amended to incorporate new or amended federal emission performance standards that have been enacted by U.S. EPA for stationary sources. These standards are currently in effect and enforceable by the South Coast AQMD pursuant to the federal Clean Air Act, regardless of whether South Coast AQMD incorporates them into Regulations IX and X. The Board has historically adopted NSPS (40 CFR 60) and NESHAP (40 CFR 61) actions into Regulations IX and X by reference providing stationary sources with a single source of information for determining which federal and local requirements apply to their specific operations. Regulations IX and X were last amended October 2016 and April 2015, respectively. These proposed amendments incorporate new or revised NSPS and NESHAP actions that have occurred since. In 2016, U.S. EPA promulgated one new NSPS for municipal solid waste landfills that commence construction, reconstruction, or modification after July 17, 2014. In addition, U.S. EPA also amended existing provisions of six NSPS standards, two NSPS appendices, one NESHAP standard, and one NESHAP appendix. This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Determining that the proposed amendments to Regulations IX – Standards of Performance for New Stationary Sources, and Regulation X – National Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants, are exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act; and 2) Amending Regulation IX – Standards of Performance for New Stationary Sources, and Regulation X – National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants. (Reviewed: Stationary Source Committee, May 17, 2019)

  • Budget/Fiscal Impact

    3. Recognize Revenue, Authorize EV Charging Fees, Execute Contract for EV Charging, and Amend Contract to Implement DC Fast Charging Network

    Matt Miyasato

    (909) 396-3249
    In March 2017, in an effort to promote EV charging, staff completed an upgrade of the EV chargers at the Diamond Bar headquarters. These actions are to recognize revenue from EV charging fees and authorize adjustment of the fees to recover electricity costs and encourage EV drivers to move their vehicles once fully charged. Additionally, in order to operate, maintain and network the large number of chargers, this action is to contract with Zeco Systems, Inc., DBA Greenlots, for up to three years in an amount not to exceed $155,664 from the Clean Fuels Program Fund (31). In October 2018, the Board amended a contract with Clean Fuel Connection, Inc., (CFCI) for up to $350,000 from the Clean Fuels Program Fund (31) as a substitution of CEC funds, but since only $310,000 of CEC funds was previously recognized towards the CFCI contract, there was a shortfall. This action is to amend a contract with CFCI in an amount up to $40,000 from the Clean Fuels Program Fund (31). (Reviewed: Technology Committee, May 17, 2019; Recommended for Approval)

  • 4. Recognize Revenue, Reimburse General Fund and Execute Agreement to Support Development of One-Stop-Shop Pilot Project

    Matt Miyasato

    (909) 396-3249
    In June 2018, CARB selected GRID Alternatives as the project administrator for the FY 2017-18 One-Stop-Shop Pilot Project, which is a new project to increase awareness of low-income residents by expanding education and outreach on the state’s clean transportation and mobility options. One of the key tasks of this project is to develop and maintain a single application for low-income consumers to apply and qualify for CARB’s Low Carbon Transportation Equity projects, which includes the South Coast AQMD’s Replace Your Ride Program. CARB and GRID Alternatives have requested support from staff to assist with the integration of the South Coast AQMD’s Replace Your Ride Program as part of the One-Stop-Shop Pilot Project. These actions are to recognize revenue from GRID Alternatives in an amount up to $75,000 into the HEROS II Special Revenue Fund (56), reimburse the General Fund from the HEROS II Special Revenue Fund (56) for staff time, and execute an agreement with GRID Alternatives to provide support in the development of the One-Stop-Shop Pilot Project.

    (909) 396-2363
    In March 2019, CARB released a solicitation to apply for funding from the FY 2018-19 Funding Agricultural Replacement Measures for Emission Reductions (FARMER) Program. South Coast AQMD submitted an application and CARB has announced a tentative allocation of $1,814,511. In addition, in November 2018, the Board approved Carl Moyer and SOON Provision awards. Some of the project types require adjustment. These actions are to adopt a Resolution recognizing revenue up to $1.9 million from CARB into the Carl Moyer Program Fund (32) and accepting terms and conditions of the FY 2018-19 FARMER Grant and reimburse the General Fund for administrative costs up to $113,407.

    Sarah Rees

    (909) 396-2856
    The Coachella Valley is classified as a Severe nonattainment area for the 1997 8-hour ozone standard, with an attainment date of June 15, 2019. Although the air quality in the Coachella Valley area has steadily improved over the years, higher ozone levels were experienced throughout the State of California, including Coachella Valley in 2017 and 2018, resulting in levels greater than the 1997 8-hour ozone standard. The ozone levels in Coachella Valley are impacted by pollutants directly transported from the South Coast Air Basin. As a result, additional time will be needed to bring the Coachella Valley into attainment of this standard. This action is to submit a request to the U.S. EPA through CARB to reclassify the Coachella Valley from Severe to Extreme nonattainment, with a new attainment date of June 15, 2024. The reclassification will ensure that the Coachella Valley will be given the needed extension of the attainment date to make attainment feasible.

  • PUBLIC HEARINGS

    28. Determine That Proposed Amendments to Rule 301 – Permitting and Associated Fees, Are Exempt from CEQA and Amend Rule 301 (Continued from May 3, 2019 Public Hearing)

    Philip Fine

    (909) 396-2239
    At the May 3, 2019 hearing, the Board adopted the FY 2019-20 Budget, and adopted amendments to Rule 209 – Transfer and Voiding of Permits, and Regulation III – Fees. As part of that adoption, that portion of Rule 301 addressing toxics emissions fees was continued to June 7, 2019. This proposed amendment would restructure how toxics emissions fees are collected from facilities, and also increase the level of these fees. At the May 3, 2019 hearing, the Board also approved a motion instructing staff to include an option for a two-year phase-in as an alternative to the proposed three-year phase-in of these fees. This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Determining that the proposed amendments to Rule 301 – Permitting and Associated Fees, are exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act; and 2) Amending Rule 301 - Permitting and Associated Fees, with either a two-year or a three-year phase-in of the new toxics emissions fees.
