Document Description
The objective of PR 2449 is to use incentive funding to achieve surplus reductions of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) emissions from in-use off-road diesel vehicles by opting into the Surplus Off-Road Opt-In for NOx (SOON) provision of the California Air Resource Board's (CARB) regulation for these vehicles as promulgated in Title 13 of the California Code of Regulations (CCR) §2449.3. Implementation of the SOON program via PR 2449 is expected to achieve surplus NOx emission reductions of approximately 12 tons per day by 2014. These reductions are considered surplus because they would be in addition to the NOx emission reductions that are already required by CARB's base regulation (Title 13, CCR§ 2449, 2449.1, and 2449.2) for these vehicles. PR 2449 will require the largest fleet owners (i.e. greater than 20,000 horsepower) with the dirtiest (i.e., where 40 percent consist of Tier 0 and Tier 1 vehicles) off-road fleets operating in the district to either: 1) purchase new equipment; 2) repower existing equipment with newer, cleaner engines; or 3) retrofit existing equipment with NOx controls. The environmental analysis in the Draft EA concluded that PR 2449 would not generate any significant adverse environmental impacts.
