Document Description
The City of Los Angeles of Water and Power is currently implementing the Owens Lake Dust Mitigation Program on Owens Lake in order to reduce particulate matter (PM10) emissions. LADWP constructs and operates dust control measures (DCMs) on the lake in compliance with Orders from the Great Basin Unified Air Pollution Control District under the authority of California Health & Safety Code Sec. 42316, legal settlement agreements with GBUAPCD, lease agreements for use of state lands (administered by CA State Lands Commission, and other regulatory approvals. The 2011 Supplemental Control Requirements Determination (SCRD) and 2012 SCRD DCMs projects would expand and modify the existing system of dust control on the lake by installation of Best Available Control Measures (BACM) (Gravel Cover, Shallow Flooding and Managed Vegetation) on 3.6 square miles of area identified as emissive by GBUAPCD. In addition, approximately 1.8 square miles of existing Shallow Flooding would be transitioned to a mix of Gravel Cover and Shallow Flooding to minimize dust while conserving water use on Owens Lake.
