|00-4-1||Public Hearing to Consider the Adoption of a Proposed Airborne Toxic Control
Measure for Emissions of Chlorinated Toxic Air Contaminants from Automotive Maintenance and Repair Activities
The Air Resources Board (Board) will consider the adoption of a proposed Airborne Toxic Control Measure (ATCM) for emissions of certain chlorinated toxic air contaminants from automotive maintenance and repair activities. The proposed ATCM is intended to reduce toxic emissions from cleaning and degreasing products that are predominantly used in automotive maintenance and repair activities.
|00-4-2||Public Meeting to Update the Board on the Status of the Portable Fuel Container
Spillage Control Regulations
In September 1999, the Board approved regulations to control spillage, evaporative and permeation emissions from portable fuel containers. At the public hearing, several portable fuel container manufacturers expressed concern about meeting the permeation standard of 0.4 grams per gallon per day by January 1, 2001, due to the cost and uncertainty of barrier treatment technologies. The Board requested that the staff provide an update in six months. The staff will provide a status report on manufacturers' progress toward meeting the permeation standard.
|00-4-3||Public Meeting to Consider an Informational Update on California-Mexico
The Air Resources Board (ARB) has been involved in several air quality management activities in the California-Mexico border region, which will assist in the development of air quality management plans for the region. These efforts include ambient air monitoring, vehicular emissions studies, and heavy-duty diesel vehicle inspections. ARB staff will present an overview of these projects and future planning efforts.
|00-4-4||Public Meeting to Consider an Informational Update on Current Activities
and Issues in Indoor Air Quality
Staff will update the Board on current activities and issues in indoor air quality, including concerns regarding school indoor environments.
