    A. Certify Final Environmental Assessment and Amend Rule 1469 – Hexavalent Chromium Emissions from Chromium Electroplating and Chromic Acid Anodizing Operations
    Susan Nakamura, 909-396-3105
    Rule 1469 currently establishes requirements to control hexavalent chromium from electroplating and chromic acid anodizing operations. Proposed Amended Rule 1469 (PAR 1469) proposes new requirements for hexavalent chromium-containing tanks that are currently not regulated, building enclosures, housekeeping and best management practices, periodic source testing, and parameter monitoring of pollution control equipment.  PAR 1469 includes provisions for a revised chemical fume suppressant certification process that further considers toxicity and exposure, and provisions to encourage the elimination of hexavalent chromium in Rule 1469 processes.  Additional proposed amendments are incorporated to align Rule 1469 with the U.S. EPA National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Chromium Electroplating.  This action is to adopt the Resolution:1) Certifying the Final Environmental Assessment for Proposed Amended Rule 1469 – Hexavalent Chromium Emissions from Chromium Electroplating and Chromic Acid Anodizing Operations; and 2) Amending Rule 1469 – Hexavalent Chromium Emissions from Chromium Electroplating and Chromic Acid Anodizing Operations.

    B. Determine that Proposed Amendments to Rule 1178 – Further Reductions of VOC Emissions from Storage Tanks at Petroleum Facilities and Rule 219 – Equipment Not Requiring a Written Permit Pursuant to Regulation II Are Exempt from CEQA; and Amend Rules 1178 and 219
    Susan Nakamura, 909-396-3105
    The proposed rule amendments to Rule 1178 will incorporate provisions that allow the use of a flexible enclosure for slotted guidepoles for petroleum storage tanks under certain conditions. Additionally, Rule 219 will be amended to exempt from permitting, slotted guidepoles that meet specific emission control configurations that are specified in Proposed Amended Rule 1178. This action is to adopt the Resolution:  1) Determining that the proposed amendments to Rule 1178 – Further Reductions of VOC Emissions from Storage Tanks at Petroleum Facilities and Rule 219 - Equipment Not Requiring a Written Permit Pursuant to Regulation II are exempt from the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act; and 2) Amending Rule 1178 – Further Reductions of VOC Emissions from Storage Tanks at Petroleum Facilities and Rule 219 - Equipment Not Requiring a Written Permit Pursuant to Regulation II.

    Philip Fine

    909-396-2239
    Following the commitment made in the 2016 AQMP, staff has conducted significant public outreach over the past year to identify potential voluntary and, if needed, regulatory emission reduction strategies for sources covered by Facility-Based Mobile Source Measures.  After reviewing the feedback received during this process, staff has developed a recommended approach tailored to each of the five facility sectors including airports, marine ports, new and redevelopment projects, rail yards, and warehouses.  This recommendation includes a spectrum of potential voluntary and regulatory approaches that show the most promise for achieving emission reductions.  Any potential rule or agreements included in this approach would be subject to a full public process, including further public outreach, environmental and economic analysis, and subsequent Board consideration.  This action is to seek Board direction for next steps in the development of Facility-Based Mobile Source Measures. (Reviewed:  Mobile Source Committee, February 16, 2018)

  • 33. Certify Final Subsequent Environmental Assessment and Amend Rule 1111 – Reduction of NOx Emissions from Natural-Gas-Fired, Fan-Type Central Furnaces; and Recognize Revenue

    Susan Nakamura

    909-396-3105
    In 2009, Rule 1111 was amended to lower the NOx emission limit for natural-gas-fired fan-type residential furnaces.  In 2014, Rule 1111 was amended to provide manufacturers additional time to develop and commercialize compliant units by allowing a mitigation fee option.  Although three manufacturers have certified furnaces, only one has a commercialized product available for sale.  Additional time is needed to commercialize a range of compliant units for the various categories.  Proposed Amended Rule 1111 will increase and extend the mitigation fee alternative compliance option and will also prevent the installation of propane furnaces in the SCAQMD capable of being fired on natural gas without proper certification.  A companion to the proposed rule amendments is a rebate program to encourage manufacturers to commercialize compliant furnaces and incentivize consumers to purchase them. This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Certifying the Final Subsequent Environmental Assessment for Proposed Amended Rule 1111 – Reduction of NOx Emissions from Natural-Gas-Fired, Fan-Type Central Furnaces; 2) Amending Rule 1111 – Reduction of NOx Emissions from Natural-Gas-Fired, Fan-Type Central Furnaces; and 3) Recognizing into the Air Quality Investment Fund (27), upon receipt of the increased amounts beyond the current mitigation fees paid by the furnace manufacturers, as potential funding for the Rule 1111 consumer rebate program.  Reviewed: Stationary Source Committee, November 17, 2017, January 19 and February 16, 2018)
