    25. Determine That Reclassification of Coachella Valley for the 2008 8-Hour Ozone Standard and Updated Motor Vehicle Emissions Budgets Is Exempt from CEQA and Approve Request to Reclassify Coachella Valley for the 2008 8-Hour Ozone Standard and Updated Motor Vehicle Emissions Budgets

    Sarah Rees

    (909) 396-2856
    Under the Clean Air Act, Motor Vehicle Emissions Budgets (MVEB) are required for each air quality standard for which an area is in nonattainment. Coachella Valley is classified as a “severe” nonattainment area for the 2008 8-Hour Ozone Standard. Coachella Valley’s MVEB for the 2008 Ozone Standard was approved by U.S. EPA in 2020. Since then, an updated on-road mobile source emissions model estimates higher emissions than the approved MVEB for the same vehicular activities. This leads to transportation conformity lockdown, under which no new transportation projects are allowed in the region. According to SCAG, $26 billion worth of projects are impacted by this transportation conformity lockdown. Reclassifying the Coachella Valley to “extreme” nonattainment provides an opportunity to develop a new SIP and update the MVEB, resolving this conformity lockdown. South Coast AQMD developed SIP elements required to update the MVEB, which are the baseline emissions inventory, reasonable further progress demonstration and an updated MVEB. (Reviewed: Mobile Source Committee, August 19, 2022)

  • 26. Determine That Proposed Amended Rule 1148.2 – Notification and Reporting Requirements for Oil and Gas Wells and Chemical Suppliers, Is Exempt from CEQA and Amend Rule 1148.2

    Michael Krause

    (909) 396-2706

    Staff is recommending that the Public Hearing on this item be pulled from consideration.

    Rule 1148.2 - Notification and Reporting Requirements for Oil and Gas Wells and Chemical Suppliers is a notification rule for facilities that operate oil and gas wells. Proposed Amended Rule 1148.2 (PAR 1148.2) will add notification requirements to include both acidizing work for injection wells and diesel-fueled workover rig operations. PAR 1148.2 will also increase notification time and reduce the number of extensions to delay the project start date. PAR 1148.2 addresses air quality priorities identified by the Wilmington, Carson, and West Long Beach and South Los Angeles AB 617 Community Emission Reduction Plans. This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Determining that Proposed Amended Rule 1148.2 – Notification and Reporting Requirements for Oil and Gas Wells and Chemical Suppliers, is exempt from the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act, and 2) Amending Rule 1148.2 – Notification and Reporting Requirements for Oil and Gas Wells and Chemical Suppliers. (Reviewed: Stationary Source Committee, September 16, 2022)
  • 27. Certify Final Subsequent Environmental Assessment for Proposed Amended Rule 1168 – Adhesive and Sealant Applications; and Amend Rule 1168

    Michael Krause

    (909) 396-2706
    Proposed Amended Rule 1168 will delay VOC limit effective dates or increase VOC limits for certain categories where the technology assessment demonstrated the proposed effective dates or limits are not feasible; create further subcategories to better characterize and refine VOC limits; prohibit the use of para-Chlorobenzotrifluoride (pCBtF) and tertiary-Butyl Acetate (t-BAc); include a conditional VOC exemption for Opteon 1100 based on an assessment by OEHHA; and clarify rule language. This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Certifying the Final Subsequent Environmental Assessment for Proposed Amended Rule 1168 – Adhesive and Sealant Applications; and 2) Amending Rule 1168 – Adhesive and Sealant Applications. (Reviewed: Stationary Source Committee, September 16, 2022)

  • 28. Determine That Proposed Rule 1460 – Control of Particulate Emissions from Metal Recycling and Shredding Operations Is Exempt from CEQA, and Adopt Proposed Rule 1460

    Michael Krause

    (909) 396-2706
    Proposed Rule 1460 will reduce fugitive dust emissions from metal recycling and metal shredding facilities by requiring housekeeping and best management practice provisions. Proposed Rule 1460 will also require facilities to register with South Coast AQMD. Proposed Rule 1460 also addresses an air quality priority identified by the Southeast Los Angeles and South Los Angeles Community Emission Reduction Plans that were developed under the AB 617 program. This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Determining that Proposed Rule 1460 - Control of Particulate Emissions from Metal Recycling and Shredding Operations, is exempt from the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act; and 2) Adopting Proposed Rule 1460 - Control of Particulate Emissions from Metal Recycling and Shredding Operations. (Reviewed: Stationary Source Committee, September 16, 2022)
