  • 2. Set Public Hearing October 5, 2018 to Consider Adoption of and/or Amendments to SCAQMD Rules and Regulations

    Wayne Nastri

    (909) 396-3131
    Nakamura (909) 396-3105

    Certify Final Subsequent Environmental Assessment and Amend Rule 2001 – Applicability and Rule 2002 – Allocations for Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) and Oxides of Sulfur (SOx)


    On January 5, 2018, the Board adopted amendments to Rules 2001 and 2002 to initiate the transition of NOx RECLAIM to a command-and-control regulatory structure.  To support ongoing efforts for transitioning RECLAIM facilities, PAR 2001 would add a provision to allow facilities to opt-out of RECLAIM if certain criteria are met.  PAR 2002 would provide an option, for facilities that receive an initial determination notification, to stay in RECLAIM for a limited time while complying with applicable command-and-control requirements.  PAR 2002 would also establish a provision that precludes any former RECLAIM facility from obtaining offsets from the SCAQMD internal bank.  PAR 2002 also clarifies existing language and removes obsolete provisions, including requirements to report infinite year block (IYB) NOx RTC prices to the Board when the price falls below the minimum threshold.  This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Certifying the Final Subsequent Environmental Assessment for Proposed Amended Rule 2001 – Applicability and Proposed Amended Rule 2002 – Allocations for Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) and Oxides of Sulfur (SOx); and 2) Amending Rule 2001 – Applicability and Rule 2002 – Allocations for Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) and Oxides of Sulfur (SOx).  (Reviewed: Stationary Source Committee, July 20, 2018)

    CARB has allocated $2,674,384 to SCAQMD under the Voluntary NOx Remediation Measure (NRM) Funding Program.  These actions are to recognize $2,674,384 into the Carl Moyer Program Fund (32) and execute a Memorandum of Agreement with CARB for implementation of the NRM Funding Program.  Since 2015, SCAQMD has been implementing an Enhanced Fleet Modernization Program (EFMP), branded as Replace Your Ride.  For FY 2017-18, CARB allocated SCAQMD an additional $16.4 million in funds to continue implementation of EFMP.  These actions are to recognize up to $16.4 million for EFMP, accept terms and conditions of the grant awards, approve vouchers or other alternative mobility options until all available funds are exhausted, amend a contract for case management and vehicle remote sensing activities in support of EFMP in an amount not to exceed $550,000 from the HEROS II Special Revenue Fund (56), transfer and appropriate up to $65,500 to Science & Technology Advancement’s FY 2018-19 or 2019-20 Budget, and reimburse the General Fund for administrative and outreach costs necessary to implement EFMP.

  • 5. Amend Contract Awards for Mobile Source Emissions Reduction Projects

    Fred Minassian

    909-396-2641
    In November 2017, the Board approved contract awards for mobile source emissions reduction projects evaluated under the Carl Moyer Program Guidelines and funded by AB 134 Community Air Protection funds.  Subsequently, in April 2018, CARB approved a supplement to the Carl Moyer Program Guidelines (Guidelines Supplement) for projects funded specifically under the Community Air Protection Program.  The Guidelines Supplement is intended to facilitate immediate emissions reductions in disadvantaged and low-income communities.  The Guidelines Supplement preserves the statutory requirements of the Carl Moyer Program, including cost-effectiveness and surplus emissions reductions, while broadening project eligibility and providing higher grant amounts for Community Air Protection projects.  After applying the Guidelines Supplement to the AB 134 Board-approved projects, staff determined several projects in disadvantaged and low-income communities now qualify for higher grant amounts.  This action is to amend contract awards for mobile source emissions reduction projects adding up to $4,488,282 for certain projects originally approved from the Community Air Protection AB 134 Fund (77).

    On May 4, 2018, the Board directed staff to pursue development of facility-based emission reduction strategies for warehouses and distribution centers including through a potential rule.  The Board further directed staff to provide regular progress reports, including an assessment of potential economic impacts.  To assist with this assessment, staff is proposing to release an RFP to solicit bids to estimate a range of potential costs based on hypothetical rule scenarios and the resultant impacts on freight operation, such as potential cargo diversion from local warehouses to facilities in adjacent regions.  This action is to appropriate up to $200,000 from the General Fund Undesignated (Unassigned) Fund Balance into Planning, Rule Development and Area Sources’ FY 2018-19 Budget. This action is to also issue an RFP to solicit qualified bidders to assess potential cost and economic impacts of a potential rule on local warehouses.

Three proposals were submitted to the Administrative Committee for consideration at its July 13, 2018 meeting. After the Committee interviewed representatives of each of the firms, Lee Andrews Group was selected for recommendation to the full Board, and the Committee recommended a three-year contract. This action is to appropriate funding to Legislative, Public Affairs & Media’s FY 2018-19 Budget and execute a three-year contract with Lee Andrews Group in an amount not to exceed $150,000 per year.

    31. Certify Final Environmental Assessment and Amend Rule 1469 – Hexavalent Chromium Emissions from Chromium Electroplating and Chromic Acid Anodizing Operations

    Susan Nakamura

    909-396-3105
    Addendum to Item #31

    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.
