arbcombo -- Subject line: inuseag—Proposed Regulation for State Implementation Plan Credit from Mobile Agricultural Equipment Workshop—July 9, 2013 in Posted: 01 Jul 2013 16:01:24
The California Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) is pleased to invite you to participate in the third public workshop to discuss the development of the Proposed Regulation for State Implementation Plan Credit from Mobile Agricultural Equipment (this regulation was previously referred to as In-Use Self-Propelled Off-Road Mobile Agricultural Equipment Regulation or Mobile Ag Regulation). ARB’s proposed regulation will provide a mechanism to ensure that incentive-funded mobile agricultural equipment projects implemented using Carl Moyer Program guidelines and administered by San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District (SJVAPCD) result in emission reductions that are eligible for State Implementation Plan (SIP) credit. This proposed regulation would also allow an opt-in for any other air district in California that complies with the requirements of the proposed regulation to have mobile agricultural equipment emission reductions that result from incentive programs be eligible to be considered for SIP credit. To meet U.S. Environmental Protection Agency requirements for SIP creditability, the emission reductions must be surplus, quantifiable, enforceable, and permanent. The proposed regulation is intended to complement SJVAPCD’s proposed Rule 9610 which provides administrative requirements on local, state, and federal voluntary incentive programs in the San Joaquin Valley to ensure that emission reductions will be eligible to receive SIP credit. The proposed regulation requires that the mobile agricultural equipment incentive projects follow the Carl Moyer Program guidelines. To ensure accountability, ongoing program reviews and audits by the SJVAPCD will be required to verify project data, application information, emission reductions, destruction verification, and retention of application, inspection, destruction, and other project-related documentation consistent with the Carl Moyer Program guidelines. This proposed regulation will be presented for Board consideration in October 2013. The workshop will be held at the following date and time: Central Valley (workshop will also be webcast) Date: Tuesday, July 9, 2013 Time: 1:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. Location: San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District 1990 E. Gettysburg Avenue Fresno, California 93726 Alternative locations with live video feed: SJVAPCD North (Modesto) SJVAPCD South (Bakersfield) 4800 Enterprise Way 34946 Flyover Court Modesto, California 95356 Bakersfield, California 93308 The workshop notice may be found on ARB's webpage at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/mailouts/mouts_13.htm The webcast can be accessed on the day of the workshop at: http://www.valleyair.org/webstreaming/webcast-meetings.htm For more information about the State Implementation Plan Credit from Mobile Agricultural Equipment Regulation, please go to: http://www.arb.ca.gov/ag/agtractor/agtractor.htm If you have questions regarding this workshop notice, please contact Ms. Lynsay Carmichael at firstname.lastname@example.org or (916) 322-0407. Background: In the 2007 8-hour Ozone SIP, ARB committed to developing a measure to reduce emissions from in-use self-propelled off-road mobile agricultural equipment. ARB staff’s proposed approach for ensuring the emission reduction goals and commitments of the 2007 SIP are met is to take this proposed regulation to the Board in October 2013.
