The Air District is proposing amendments and additions to Regulation 6, which governs particulate matter emissions from various commercial and industrial operations. The Air District estimates that several hundred facilities may be subject to these proposed rules.
The amendments and additions involve the following rules:
The current Regulation 6, Rule 1, was most recently amended in December 2007. These new draft amendments to Rule 6-1 bring it up to date with California’s strictest particulate matter requirements. The Air District has drafted several new rules to address other sources of particulate matter.
The Air District is developing several proposed draft regulations to reduce or cap emissions from existing facilities.
More information and supporting materials, including the draft staff report(571 Kb PDF, 47 pgs, revised 03/25/17) for Draft Regulation 11, Rule 18, and Draft Regulation 12, Rule 16, can be found on the Regulatory Workshops pages.
The Air District is seeking to adopt regulatory amendments to Regulation 6, Rule 3 to further reduce fine particulate emissions from wood burning. Written comments on the proposed rule amendments must be received by 9:00 a.m. on Monday, October 19, 2015. A public hearing to adopt these proposed amendments is scheduled for Wednesday, October 21, 2015.
These amendments to Regulation 6, Rule 3, were adopted on October 21, 2015.
