vapor -- Public Workshop to Discuss Proposed 2014 Enhanced Vapor Recovery Regulatory Amendments Posted: 27 Jun 2014 14:19:25
The Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) staff invites you to participate in a public workshop to discuss proposed changes to California’s vapor recovery program, which is an important control measure that contributes to statewide efforts to attain and maintain federal and state health based air quality standards for ozone as well as reducing public exposure to benzene, a toxic air contaminant. Proposed changes include amendments to the Aboveground Storage Tank (AST) Enhanced Vapor Recovery (EVR) regulations and establishment of a new certification process and new spillage standards for enhanced conventional (ECO) nozzles that do not include a vapor recovery path. In March and April, staff held informational workshops to solicit public comments on proposals to modify AST applicability requirements for standing loss control and Phase I EVR, and to add new performance spillage standards for ECO nozzles. The July workshop will be a continuation of the regulatory development process where staff is requesting the public to provide comments on draft regulatory language for those proposals. These proposals will be considered by the Board at a November 2014 Hearing. Please note that draft regulatory language has not been developed to address overpressure alarms or second generation ISD; two topics which were discussed during the March workshops. However, staff will provide an informational update on these topics. Regulatory proposals for these two items will now be heard by the Board in the summer of 2015. The workshops will be held in three locations: Date: Monday, July 21, 2014 Tuesday, July 22, 2014 Wednesday, July 23, 2014 Time: 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm 10:00 am to 12:00 pm 10:00 am to 12:00 pm Location: Air Resources Board 1927 13th Street Sacramento, CA 95811 South Coast AQMD Headquarters Meeting Room GB 21865 Copley Drive Diamond Bar, CA 91765 San Joaquin Valley APCD Headquarters 1990 E. Gettysburg Ave. Fresno, CA, 93726 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. An agenda and workshop notice containing location, directions, and teleconference instructions will be made available on ARB's website at http://www.arb.ca.gov/vapor/vapor.htm. Draft regulatory language and supporting documentation will also be posted to this website prior to the workshop.
