Document Description
The proposed project is comprised of PR 461.1, and proposed amendments to Rules 461, 219, and 222. PR 461.1 has been developed to minimize emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) and toxics from mobile fueling operations through establishing requirements applicable to: 1) an owner or operator of a mobile fueler conducting retail or non-retail mobile fueling operations; 2) an owner or operator of dispensing locations where mobile fuelers operate; and 3) any person who installs, repairs, maintains, supplies, sells, or offers for sale components of a mobile fueler, conducts any test for a mobile fueler, or manufacture CARB-certified control equipment or the associated components thereof. PAR 461 proposes to remove specific provisions pertaining to the requirements and emission control equipment associated with mobile fueling operations since these requirements are included in PR 461.1. Further, amendments to Rule 219 are proposed that will remove mobile fuelers from the existing exemption in paragraph (m)(9) and will add two separate exemptions for retail and non-retail mobile fuelers in with the new lower cumulative capacity mobile fueler thresholds from PR 461.1. Finally, amendments to Rule 222 are proposed that would establish registration requirements for retail mobile fueler gasoline dispensing locations to ensure that multiple mobile fueler companies would not create a health risk that would exceed the thresholds established by Rule 1401. Implementation of the proposed project is expected to result in less than significant increases of VOC and toxic emissions and associated public health risk from mobile fueling operations. The Draft EA did not identify any environmental topic areas that would be significantly adversely affected by the proposed project. Of the potential sites identified by operators of mobile fuelers where mobile fueling operations (gasoline dispensing) would occur, none are identified on lists compiled by the California Department of Toxic Substances Control per Government Code Section 65962.5.
