Document Description
Note: Reference SCH #2008011127, 2008071014 Proposed Amended Rule 1135 applies to RECLAIM and non-RECLAIM electricity generating facilities that are participants of the California Independent System Operation Corporation, a municipal or public electric utility, or an electric utility located on Santa Catalina Island. PAR 1135 is proposing to: 1) expand applicability to include units that were not previously required to comply with Rule 1135; 2) update the NOx and ammonia emission limits for boilers and gas turbines; 3) establish NOx emission limits and add new emission limits for ammonia, carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds, and particulate matter for internal combustion engines; 4) revise monitoring, reporting, and recordkeeping requirements; and 5) revise exemptions. The proposed project is estimated to reduce NOx emissions by 0.9 ton per day by January 1, 2024. The Draft Mitigated SEA indicated that while the project reduces NOx emissions, complying with PAR 1135 may also create secondary adverse environmental impacts that would not result in significant adverse impacts to any environmental topic areas after mitigation. Some facilities affected by PAR 1135 may be identified on lists compiled by DTSC per Government Code Section 65962.5.
