Document Description
NOTES: Review extended per lead The project consists of re-adopting proposed Rule (PR) 1315 as modified. PR 1315 would codify new and existing procedures for establishing equivalency with federal offset requirements for various projects that obtain offsets pursuant to SCAQMD Rule 1309.1 - Priority Reserve, or that are exempt from offsets pursuant to SCAQMD Rule 1304 - Exemptions. The amount of offsets needed for federal major sources relying in the SCAQMD internal offset accounts to meet the federal NSR requirements will be debited from SCAQMD's internal offset accounts. PR 1315 would: specify the types of reductions that may be deposited into the SCAQMD's internal offset account, including newly tracked reductions; require SCAQMD to track annually all eligible offsets deposited into the SCAQMD internal offset accounts; and impose cumulative annual caps based on 2007 AQMP growth projections for each nonattainment pollutant as a backstop measure to ensure that the net emission increase, if any, attributable to both federal major and non-major sources are consistent with the analysis in the PEA. The analysis shows that access to, and use of, emission offsets from the SCAQMD's internal offset accounts could generate potentially significant adverse air quality, visibility, and greenhouse has impacts from new or modified facilities using the emission offsets. In addition, significant adverse indirect environmental impacts from sitting, constructing, and operating these facilities could also occur.
