  • 1. Determine That Proposed Amendments to Rule 445 – Wood-Burning Devices, Are Exempt from CEQA and Amend Rule 445

    Proposed amendments to Rule 445 will satisfy U.S. EPA contingency measure requirements due by October 31, 2020 for the South Coast Air Basin (Basin) which is classified as an extreme non-attainment area for ozone. The proposed amendments would include addition of an ozone threshold for calling a No-Burn day, effective September 1 through April 30, if the ozone contingency measures are triggered. The ozone threshold for No-Burn days would be incrementally lowered automatically for each subsequent final determination by U.S. EPA of a failure to meet an applicable Clean Air Act milestone. PM2.5 rule provisions will remain unchanged, including calling No-Burn days only from November 1 through the end of February. Other minor amendments include revisions/additions to the definition of terms used in the rule and revisions to improve clarity/rule implementation. This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Determining that the proposed amendments to Rule 445 – Wood-Burning Devices, are exempt from the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act; and 2) Amending Rule 445 – Wood-Burning Devices.
