The revised rules have common requirements including improved housekeeping and best management practices, total enclosure of operations with the potential to generate fugitive emissions of toxic metals, periodic source testing of point sources, and in some cases, ambient fence line monitoring. These rules affect over 250 facilities within SCAQMD’s jurisdiction, and the compliance with the requirements will require extensive planning, capital investment, and ongoing cost and manpower.
Affected facilities should monitor the rule making process and begin developing plans for compliance with the revised rules. SCAQMD has held multiple working group meetings, public workshops, and public hearings for each of the rules. Rulemaking meetings scheduled for the near future are listed below.
