Document Description
IS-1 (Construction Mitigation Rule) is a proposed control measure which the District committed in the 2009 Sacramento Regional 8-Hour Ozone and Reasonable Further Progress Plan (Plan). The control measure would have required mitigation of NOX emission on new land use construction sites by using cleaner equipment or paying a fee for the District to mitigate the emissions. The District removes the proposed control measure from the Plan because of the following factors; (1) The mitigation rule largely duplicate our existing CEQA construction mitigation program that is being more consisting implemented by CEQA lead agencies; (2) Construction emissions are significantly lower than previously estimated, in part, because of the recent economic downturn; and (3) The mitigation rule adds administrative costs and new or increased fees that may be subject to Proposition 26.
