Cambios de las regulaciones de permisos

Obtenga más información sobre la regulación de permisos del Distrito de Aire y los cambios propuestos para las reglas seleccionadas conforme a esta regulación.

The Permits Regulation describes the requirements for permits issued by the Air District. These permitting programs protect public health by limiting air pollutants such as precursor organic compounds (POC), non-precursor organic compounds (NPOC), particulate matter (PM), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), carbon monoxide (CO), sulfur dioxide (SO2), lead (Pb), toxic air contaminants, and greenhouse gases.

The Air District’s Permitting Rules, Regulations 2-1, 2-2, 2-4 and 2-6, were adopted by the Board of Directors at a public hearing on December 6, 2018.

Public Hearing on Proposed Changes to the Permits Regulation - NOTE REVISED PROPOSAL AND NEW DECEMBER 6, 2017, PUBLIC HEARING DATE

The Air District is proposing revisions to Regulations 2-1, 2-2, 2-4, and 2-6. The proposed revisions affect two Air District permitting programs:

  • The "New Source Review" or NSR, program, which requires permits and stringent emission control requirements for the installation or modification of stationary air pollution sources or equipment; and
  • The "Title V" program, which requires Major Facilities to obtain operating permits.

The proposed revisions include the following changes:

  • Revisions to the NSR program to address a number of specific "deficiencies" identified by U.S. EPA in its limited approval/disapproval of Regulations 2-1 and 2-2, published in the Federal Register on August 1, 2016, and in its proposed conditional approval of Regulation 2-4, published on September 14, 2017. These revisions are necessary to allow EPA to fully approve the Air District’s regulations under the Clean Air Act.
  • Certain other revisions identified by Air District staff to ensure that the regulations effectively implement the most recent amendments adopted in 2012; and
  • Changes to the Air District’s NSR and Title V regulations to make them consistent with U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Utility Air Regulatory Group v. EPA (134 S.Ct. 2427 (2014)), which interpreted several relevant provisions of the federal Clean Air Act regarding the Act’s NSR and Title V program requirements.

The Air District’s Board of Directors will hold a public hearing on Wednesday, December 6, 2017, commencing at 9:45 a.m., to consider adoption of the proposed amendments along with a Negative Declaration under the California Environmental Quality Act. Further information, including drafts of the proposed revisions and Negative Declaration and related documents, can be found at the links below.

The proposed amendments that will be considered on December 6, 2017, are a revised version of proposed amendments that the Air District published in August of 2017, which were originally scheduled to be considered by the Board of Directors on October 18, 2017.

The further revisions made since the August proposal was published include (i) minor revisions to the Air District’s emissions banking provisions in Regulation 2, Rule 4, to address certain deficiencies identified by EPA Region 9 on September 14, 2017; and (ii) additional revisions to the procedures by which the Air District makes its annual demonstration that the “offsets” requirements in the District’s NSR program are at least as stringent as what EPA’s federal regulations require. These further revisions are explained in more detail in the Staff Report and related documents (see links below).

The Air District will consider all comments received on the earlier version of the proposed amendments, in addition to comments on the current version. Members of the public do not need to re-submit any comments they submitted on the earlier version.

La Regulación de permisos describe los requisitos para los permisos que emite el Distrito de Aire. Estos programas de permisos protegen la salud pública al limitar los contaminantes del aire como los compuestos orgánicos precursores (precursor organic compounds, POC), los compuestos orgánicos no precursores (non-precursor organic compounds, NPOC), la materia particulada (particulate matter, PM), el dióxido de nitrógeno (NO2), el monóxido de carbono (CO), el dióxido de azufre (SO2), el plomo (Pb), los contaminantes tóxicos del aire y los gases de efecto invernadero.

Cambios a la regulación de permisos

En diciembre del 2012, la Junta Directiva del Distrito de Aire adoptó cambios a las siguientes reglas. Las primeras tres reglas modificadas no entrarán en vigor hasta que las apruebe la Agencia de Protección Ambiental de EE. UU.:

La EPA de EE. UU. publicará una notificación en el Registro federal cuando apruebe estas enmiendas, junto con la fecha de entrada en vigor.

El propósito de estos cambios es:

  • incluir los nuevos requisitos de la EPA para los programas de permisos de materia particulada y gases de efecto invernadero en Revisión de fuente nueva y Evaluación de instalaciones de gran capacidad/Título V
  • ayudar al Distrito a obtener un programa de permisos de prevención del deterioro significativo, incluidos los requisitos nuevos para los óxidos de nitrógeno
  • aumentar la claridad y la utilidad de las reglas de permisos de la Revisión de fuentes nuevas y la Evaluación de instalaciones de gran capacidad/Título V del Distrito
  • aplicar requisitos nuevos y más estrictos para los permisos de materia particulada y de Revisión de nueva fuente
