SUMMARY:

On March 25, 2020, the Board of Supervisors of the County of San Diego (County) will hold a hearing on a proposed resolution of application to the Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO) to form a County Service Area (CSA) in Boulevard, California.  If  the Board of Supervisors approves this action, the County will thereafter submit the resolution of application to LAFCO to approve or deny the CSA’s formation. The formation of a CSA will enable the County to provide water within the proposed CSA’s boundary and ensure the associated costs and revenues are segregated to the properties that receive these services. If the Board of Supervisors approves the recommended actions and LAFCO approves the CSA’s formation, the County Department of Public Works will return to the Board of Supervisors to establish a rate and adopt a fee ordinance to finance the provision of water service within the CSA.

GENERAL INFORMATION: A copy of the full text of the proposed resolution of applicaion, including a boundary map of the proposed CSA,  is posted at the office of the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors, County Administration Center, 1600 Pacific Highway, 4th Floor, San Diego, CA 92101. The material will be available for public review seven days prior to the public hearing at said office of the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors. For additional information regarding this proposal, contact Dan Brogadir at (858) 694-2714.

This public hearing is accessible to individuals with disabilities.  If interpreter services for the hearing impaired are needed, please call the hearing secretary at (619) 531-5600 or California Relay Service, if notifying by TDD, no later than seven (7) days prior to the scheduled hearing.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

NOTICE, pursuant to State of California Health and Safety Code Section 40725 and the Code of Federal Regulations Title 40, section 51.102, is hereby given of a public hearing on March 25, 2020, at 9:00 a.m., before the Air Pollution Control Board (Board) of the County of San Diego, in Room 310, County Administration Center, 1600 Pacific Highway, San Diego, California, for the purpose of receiving public comments on and considering the adoption of proposed amendments to Rule 69.2.1 – Small Boilers, Process Heaters, Steam Generators, and Large Water Heaters of the San Diego County Air Pollution Control District (District).

Current Rule 69.2.1, adopted in 2009, controls oxides of nitrogen (NOx) emissions from new small boilers, process heaters, and steam generators with a heat input rating between 600,000 and 2 million British thermal units (Btu) per hour.  Proposed amended Rule 69.2.1 establishes more health-protective emissions limits and expands rule applicability to new units with a heat input rating between 75,000 and 2 million Btu per hour.  Equipment manufacturers will be required to certify their new units’ compliance with all applicable rule provisions. 

An estimated 50,900 existing units will be subject to the proposed amended rule.  Upon full implementation, when all existing units are replaced through normal attrition, the proposed amended rule will reduce NOx emissions from affected equipment by approximately 67% or 277 tons per year.

If adopted, proposed amended Rule 69.2.1 will be submitted to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for approval into the State Implementation Plan for attaining and maintaining the air quality standards.  The rule will become effective on January 1, 2021, providing time for affected manufacturers and distributors to deplete their existing inventories of standard units and transition to the new requirements.

The Board may consider modifications to the proposal, which may be deemed appropriate.  Written comments are also invited.  Comments should be addressed to:

Angela M. Ortega, Rule Development Supervisor

San Diego County Air Pollution Control District

10124 Old Grove Road, San Diego, CA  92131

Copies of the proposed amendments to Rule 69.2.1 may be examined or obtained at the District's headquarters, 10124 Old Grove Road, San Diego, CA  92131, or by visiting the District's website at http://www.sdapcd.org/content/sdc/apcd/en/Rule_Development/Public_Hearings.html.  Specific information with respect to this matter may be obtained by calling Angela M. Ortega, Rule Development Supervisor, at (858) 586-2753.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

NOTICE, pursuant to State of California Health and Safety Code Section 40725 and the Code of Federal Regulations Title 40, section 51.102, is hereby given of a public hearing on March 25, 2020, at 9:00 a.m., before the Air Pollution Control Board (Board) of the County of San Diego, in Room 310, County Administration Center, 1600 Pacific Highway, San Diego, California, for the purpose of receiving public comments on and considering the adoption of proposed new Rule 69.2.2 – Medium Boilers, Process Heaters, and Steam Generators, and related proposed amendments to Rule 11 – Exemptions from Rule 10 Permit Requirements and Rule 12 – Registration of Specified Equipment of the San Diego County Air Pollution Control District (District).

Proposed new Rule 69.2.2 will control oxides of nitrogen emissions from medium boilers, process heaters, and steam generators (units) with a heat input rating between 2 and 5 million British thermal units (Btu) per hour.  If adopted, the proposed new rule will be submitted to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for approval into the State Implementation Plan for attaining and maintaining the air quality standards.  The rule will become effective on January 1, 2021, providing time for affected manufacturers and distributors to deplete their existing inventories of standard units and transition to the new requirements.  The proposed new rule will require any new unit installed on or after January 1, 2021 to comply with the rule requirements.

Additionally, corresponding amendments to District Rule 11 (Exemptions from Rule 10 Permit Requirements) are proposed to remove an existing permit exemption for units with a heat input rating between 2 and 5 million Btu per hour.  Related amendments to District Rule 12 (Registration of Specified Equipment) are also proposed so that these units may be registered in lieu of obtaining a permit.  Lastly, additional minor revisions to Rule 12 are also proposed, which include allowing paper shredders and small brewery grain silos to be registered in lieu of obtaining a permit.

The Board may consider modifications to the proposal, which may be deemed appropriate.  Written comments are also invited.  Comments should be addressed to:

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

NOTICE, pursuant to State of California Health and Safety Code Section 40725 and the Code of Federal Regulations Title 40, section 51.102, is hereby given of a public hearing on March 25, 2020, at 9:00 a.m., before the Air Pollution Control Board (Board) of the County of San Diego, in Room 310, County Administration Center, 1600 Pacific Highway, San Diego, California, for the purpose of receiving public comments on and considering the adoption of proposed amendments to Rule 69.4.1 – Stationary Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines, and repeal of existing Rule 69.4 – Stationary Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines – Reasonably Available Control Technology of the San Diego County Air Pollution Control District (District).

Rule 69.4, last amended on July 30, 2003, was subsequently approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as part of the San Diego County portion of the State Implementation Plan (SIP) for attaining and maintaining the air quality standards.  The rule contains federal-only standards that reduce NOx emissions from stationary engines with a brake horsepower (bhp) rating of 50 or more that are located at major stationary sources (facilities emitting 50 or more tons per year of NOx).  Rule 69.4.1, adopted on November 15, 2000, also applies to stationary engines with a bhp rating of 50 or greater.  However, Rule 69.4.1 contains more health-protective State requirements for lower air pollutant emissions from stationary engines located at both major and non-major sources.

Following the adoption of these District rules, federal and State regulations were enacted which further limit the allowable air pollutant emissions from new and replacement stationary engines.  Incorporating the federal and State requirements in Rule 69.4.1 will enable the District to take credit for the resulting emissions reduction benefits in the region's air quality attainment plans.  If adopted by the Board, proposed amended Rule 69.4.1 will be submitted to the EPA for approval into the SIP for attaining and maintaining the air quality standards.  Existing Rule 69.4 will be automatically repealed at that time, as it is outdated and no longer needed.

The Board may consider modifications to the proposal, which may be deemed appropriate.  Written comments are also invited.  Comments should be addressed to:
