Document Description
Silver Lining Cremations is adding an additional incinerator to an existing human crematory operation. An American Crematory, A-300 Trilogy crematory (or equivalent) will be added to the existing unit occupying the same building. The new unit will use natural gas as the fuel and have a twenty-six-foot exhaust stack. The operation will run twelve hours a day, seven days a week as it currently does. The second crematory will have an enforceable permit limit to require start-up fifteen minutes after the first crematory to reduce the hourly emissions. Project implementation may only occur following the San Diego County Air Pollution Control District (SDAPCD) issuance of air quality permits (Authority to Construct and Permit to Operate) and will be subject to permit conditions limiting or requiring specific actions to ensure compliance with SDAPCD air pollution control requirements, thereby minimizing the impact of any emissions and ensuring no significant adverse effect upon ambient air quality or public health. The project applicant will be subject to periodic inspections by the SDAPCD to confirm compliance.
