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

    Wayne Nastri

    (909) 396-3131

    June 1, 2018:

    A. Certify Final Environmental Assessment and Amend Rules 1146, 1146.1, 1146.2 and Adopt Rule 1100
    Philip Fine, 909-396-2239

    The adoption Resolution of the Final 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. PARs 1146, 1146.1 and 1146.2 represent the first set of command-and-control rules that establish Best Available Retrofit Control Technology requirements that RECLAIM facilities with equipment applicable to these rules will be required to meet. Proposed Rule 1100 - Implementation Schedule for NOx Facilities establishes the compliance schedule for PARs 1146 and 1146.1 equipment for facilities exiting the RECLAIM program. PAR 1146.2 includes the compliance schedule for equipment regulated under this rule. This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Certifying the Final 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, 1146.2; and 3) Adopting Rule 1100. (Reviewed: Stationary Source Committee, April 20, 2018)


    July 6, 2018:

    B. 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. PAR 1469 proposes new requirements to control hexavalent chromium-containing tanks that are currently not regulated. In addition, PAR 1469 establishes requirements for 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.

    3. Execute Contract to Develop, and Certify Near-Zero Emission Propane Engine for On-Road Medium-Duty Vehicles

    Matt Miyasato

    909-396-3249
    The SCAQMD helped to develop near-zero emission CNG engines that are 90% cleaner than the current heavy-duty engine standard, and those engines are now available in the market. There is a need, however, to develop and certify near-zero engines for medium-duty vehicles. Roush CleanTech proposes to modify an existing Ford 6.8-liter propane engine to achieve certification at near-zero NOx for use in Type C school buses and cutaway trucks and vans. This action is to execute a contract with Roush CleanTech to develop, demonstrate and certify a 6.8-liter near-zero emission propane engine in an amount not to exceed $488,750 from the Clean Fuels Program Fund (31). (Reviewed: Technology Committee, April 20, 2018; Recommended for Approval)

    Jason Low

    909-396-2269
    SCAQMD anticipates receiving up to $686,579 from the U.S. EPA and the California Air Pollution Control Officers Association for the PM2.5 Program. These actions are to recognize this revenue and appropriate funds for the PM2.5 Program into Science & Technology Advancement’s (STA’s) FY 2017-18 Budget and carry over any unexpended funds into STA’s FY 2018-19 Budget.

Subsequently, on April 6, 2018, the Board recognized $3,184,875 from U.S. EPA’s 2017 Targeted Air Shed Grant Program to replace diesel school buses with near-zero emission CNG buses. This action is to approve awards to replace pre-1994 diesel school buses with new, near-zero or optional low NOx alternative fuel buses in an amount not to exceed $35,638,000, comprised of $32,533,300 from the Carl Moyer Program AB 923 Special Revenue Fund (80) and $3,104,700 from U.S. EPA’s 2017 Targeted Air Shed Grant in the Clean Fuels Program Fund (31).

    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. Adopt Executive Officer’s FY 2018-19 Proposed Goals and Priority Objectives, and Draft Budget; and Determine that Proposed Amendments to Regulation III – Fees Are Exempt from CEQA and Amend Regulation III

    Sujata Jain

    909-396-2804
    The Executive Officer's Proposed Goals and Priority Objectives, and Draft Budget for FY 2018-19 have been developed and are recommended for adoption. The Draft Budget includes implementation of the phased fee increase adopted by the Board on June 2, 2017 to continue cost recovery efforts. In addition, staff is proposing amendments to Regulation III – Fees. The amendments include: 1) Pursuant to Rule 320, an increase of most fees by 3.4% consistent with the Consumer Price Index; 2) new fees which are necessary to meet the requirements of recently adopted rules and state mandates; and 3) new or increased fees which are necessary to provide more specific cost recovery for other regulatory actions taken by the agency. Staff also recommends other proposed changes to Regulation III, which have no fee impact, but include clarifications, deletions, or corrections to existing rule language. The fee increases have been presented at a Budget Study Session, a Budget Advisory Committee meeting and at two public consultation meetings in March and April with recommendations and comments provided to the Board. This action is to: 1) Adopt the Executive Officer’s Proposed Goals and Priority Objectives, and Draft Budget for FY 2018-19; 2) Determine that the proposed amendments to Regulation III - Fees are exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act; and 3) Amend Regulation III.

  • 34. Determine that Proposed Amendments to Rule 408 - Circumvention Are Exempt from CEQA and Amend Rule 408

    Philip Fine

    909-396-2239
    Proposed Amended Rule 408 would limit the existing exemption from the prohibition on suppressing emissions to cases in which the only violation is an odor nuisance. It otherwise prohibits suppressing or concealing emissions without reducing emissions that violate any air pollution requirement. The proposed amendments would also prohibit temporary alterations to normal business operations or equipment to suppress emissions for the purpose of evading detection or concealing emissions during monitoring or testing. This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Determining that the proposed amendments to Rule 408 – Circumvention are exempt from the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act; and 2) Amending Rule 408 – Circumvention. (Reviewed: Stationary Source Committee, March 16, 2018)

    CONFLICT OF INTEREST DISCLOSURES – (No Written Material)

The University of California, Riverside CE-CERT is a potential source of income for Governing Board Member Joseph Lyou, which qualifies for the remote interest exception of Section 1090 of the California Government Code.
