Reasons for Exemption
The project updates the adoption and impelemetation of four control measures that will achieve emission reductions in the San Joaquin Valley. These control measures are already District commitments. While two control measures are also dropped from further rulemaing consideration, a control measure that will achieve equivalent emission reductions is substituted. The new control measure commitment would establish lower emission compliance limits for stationary gas turbines that are already regulated by the District.
