Proposed Amended Rule (PAR) 1420.1 - Emissions Standard for Lead and Other Toxic Air Contaminants from Large Lead-Acid Battery Recycling Facilities
EA - Environmental Assessment
Present Land Use
PAR 1420.1 would further protect public health by reducing lead emissions produced by large lead-acid battery recycling facilities. PAR 1420.1 would accomplish this by lowering the ambient lead concentration limit, imposing additional housekeeping, lowering the point source limit, and requiring daily monitoring. Owner/operators of affected facilities would be required to meet an interim for ambient lead limit of 0.110 micrograms per cubic meter averaged over any 30 days effective January 1, 2016. The limit would be further reduced to 0.100 ug/m3 effective January 1, 2017. Improvements to building enclosures and additional control equipment may be necessary to comply with the proposed ambient standard. The environmental analysis in the Draft SEA concluded that PAR 1420.1 would not generate any significant adverse environmental impacts. PAR 1420.1 would affect two facilities that are on lists of DTSC hazardous waste facilities per Government Code S65962.5.
