Document Description
SCAQMD staff is proposing to amend Rule 1148.1 - Oil and Gas Production Wells, to prevent public nuisance and possible detriment to public health caused by exposure to volatile organic compound (VOC), toxic air contaminant and total organic compound emissions from the operation and maintenance of oil and gas production facilities. Proposed amended Rule 1148.1 would: 1) increase the minimum proximity distance to sensitive receptors (e.g., from 100 meters to 1,500 feet) that would trigger additional emission and odor preventative measures; 2) require the use of odor mitigation best practices for operation and maintenance of oil and gas production facilities; 3) require specific cause analysis and reporting for confirmed odor events; 4) require Odor Mitigation Plans for facilities with continuing odor issues; and, 5) make administration changes by removing obsolete rule language and making minor revisions to promote clarity, consistency, and enforceability throughout the rule. Analysis of the proposed project in the EA did not result in the identification of any environmental topic areas that would be significantly adversely affected by the proposed project.
