Document Description
The 2016 AQMP identifies control measures and strategies to bring the region into attainment with the revoked 1997 8-hour National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS or standard) (80 ppb) for ozone by 2024; the 2008 8-hour ozone standard (75 ppb) by 2032; the 2012 annual PM 2.5 standard (12 ug/m3) by 2025; the 2006 24-hour PM2.5 standard (35 ug/m3) by 2019; and the revoked 1979 1-hour ozone standard (120 ppb) by 2023. The 2016 AQMP consists of three components: 1) the SCAQMD's Stationary, Area, and Mobile Source Control Measures; 2) State and Federal Control Measures provided by the ARB; and 3) Regional Transportation Strategy Control Measures provided by the Southern CA Association of Governments. The 2016 AQMP includes emission inventories and control measures for stationary, area and mobile sources, the most current air quality setting, updated growth projects, new modeling techniques, demonstration of compliance with state and federal Clean Air Act requirements, and an implementation schedule for adoption of the proposed control strategy. The FEIR identified potential adverse impacts that may result from implementing the proposed project for the following environmental topic areas: aesthetics, air quality and greenhouse gases, energy, hazards and hazardous materials, hydrology and water quality, noise, solid and hazardous waste, transportation and traffic. The analysis concluded that significant and unavoidable adverse environmental impacts from the proposed project are expected to occur after implementing mitigation measures for the following topic areas: 1) aesthetics from increased glare and from the construction and operation of catenary lines and use of bonnet technology for ships; 2) construction air quality and GHGs; 3) energy (due to increased electricity demand); 4) hazards and hazardous material due to: a) increased flammability of solvents; b) storage, accidental release and transportation of ammonia; c) storage and transportation of liquefied natural gas; d) proximity to schools; 5) hydrology (water demand); 6) construction noise and vibration; 7) solid construction waste and operational waste from vehicle and equipment scrapping; and, 8) transportation and traffic during construction and during operation on roadways with catenary lines and at the harbors.
