Document Description
SCAQMD staff is proposing to amend Regulation XX, which includes PARs 2001 and 2002, as part of the on-going transition from facilities in the NOx RECLAIM program to a command-and-control regulatory structure. PAR 2001 is proposing to allow any facility to exit RECLAIM so long as it meets certain specific criteria, which would be applicable to all existing RECLAIM facilities. PAR 2002 is proposing to allow facilities to remain in RECLAIM after the issuance of an initial determination notification for potential exit; however, any remaining RECLAIM facilities will be required to comply with future Best Available Retrofit Control Technology limits or other requirements as they are adopted and made applicable to existing RECLAIM facilities. Otherwise, PARs 2001 and 2002 are administrative in nature and do not impose a new or more stringent emission limit or standard. B/c BARCT is statutorily defined to be based on "environmental, energy, and economic impacts," it would be speculative to assume what new BARCT will be, since most new BARCT assessments have not yet been conducted. So, the analysis in this Draft SEA is limited to impacts for new BARCT where the assessments have been completed. Any potential environmental impacts associated with complying with future rules where the BARCT assessments have not been completed are not reasonably foreseeable at this time. As such, the Draft SEA concluded that these impacts are too speculative for evaluation per CEQA guidelines section 15145. Some facilities affected by PARs 2001 and 2002 may be identified on lists compiled by DTSC per Gov Code 65962.5.
