vapor -- Public Workshops to Discuss 2014 Vapor Recovery Rulemaking: Sacramento on March 7, 2014 and Diamond Bar on March 14, 2014 Posted: 21 Feb 2014 11:12:31
The Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) staff invites you to participate in a public workshop to discuss conceptual changes to regulations that control the release of gasoline vapors at dispensing facilities (service stations) equipped with underground storage tanks. At the workshop, staff will provide a status of the ongoing field study to determine the prevalence and impact of In-Station Diagnostic (ISD) system over pressure alarms. Additionally, staff will discuss concepts under consideration for second generation ISD requirements and proposed liquid release standards for nozzles that do not have vapor return paths (enhanced conventional nozzles or ECO nozzles). The workshop will be held in two locations as indicated below; each workshop will cover the same topics and will consist of a one hour presentation by ARB staff, followed by a question-and-answer session. Date: Friday, March 7, 2014 Time: 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Location: Cal/EPA Headquarters Klamath Training Room,2nd Floor 1001 I Street Sacramento, CA 95814 Date: Friday, March 14, 2014 Time: 10:00a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Location: South Coast AQMD Headquarters Auditorium 21865 Copley Drive Diamond Bar, CA 91765 The workshop notices, directions, teleconference instructions, and agenda will be made available on ARB's website: http://www.arb.ca.gov/vapor/vapor.htm. Please contact Lou Dinkler via email at firstname.lastname@example.org for questions regarding over pressure and second generation ISD or Pat Bennett at email@example.com for questions regarding ECO nozzles. Both Mr. Dinkler and Mr. Bennett can be reached at(916) 327-0900. Background: Vapor recovery systems at service stations have been used in California since the 1970s. These systems control the release of gasoline vapors into the air when gasoline is transferred from a tanker truck into a service stationís underground storage tanks and when gasoline is transferred from these tanks into motor vehicles. Most service stations are equipped with an ISD system, which provides continuous monitoring of critical vapor recovery components and promptly alerts station owners/operators of any system failures so that corrective actions can be taken. Vapor recovery is an important control measure that contributes to statewide efforts to attain federal and state health based air quality standards and to reduce public exposure to benzene, a toxic air contaminant. State law provides that only ARB certified systems can be sold or installed in California and local air districts are responsible for enforcing vapor recovery requirements. California is in a drought emergency. Visit www.SaveOurH2O.org for water conservation tips.
