MAJOR STATIONARY SOURCE FEES

(Adopted June 6, 1990)

For each major stationary source emitting 100 tons per year or more of Organic Compounds, Sulfur Oxides and/or Nitrogen Oxides, the fee shall be based on the following:

  1. Organic Compounds - $41.50 per ton
  2. Sulfur Oxides - $41.50 per ton
  3. Nitrogen Oxides - $41.50 per ton

Emissions calculated by the APCO shall be based on the data reported for the most recent 12-month period prior to billing. In calculating the fee amount, emissions of Organic Compounds, Sulfur Oxides or Nitrogen Oxides, if occurring in an amount less than 100 tons per year, shall not be counted.

(Amended 7/3/91; 6/15/94; 7/1/98; 5/9/99)

TOXIC INVENTORY FEES

(Adopted October 21, 1992)

 

For each stationary source emitting substances covered by California Health and Safety Code Section 44300 et seq., the Air Toxics "Hot Spots" Information and Assessment Act of 1987, a fee based on the weighted emissions of the facility shall be assessed based on the following formulas:

  1. A fee of $5 for each gasoline product dispensing nozzle in the facility, if the facility is a Gasoline Dispensing Facility; or
  2. A fee of $125 if the facility has emissions in the current Toxic Emissions Inventory which are greater than or equal to 50 weighted pounds per year and less than 1000 weighted pounds per year; or
  3. A fee of $125 + if the facility has emissions in the current Toxic Emissions Inventory which are greater than or equal to 1000 weighted pounds per year;

where the following relationships hold:

 

= facility weighted emissions for facility j; where the weighted emission for the facility shall be calculated as a sum of the individual emissions of the facility multiplied by either the Unit Risk Value for the substance times one hundred thousand (in cubic meters/microgram) if the emission is a carcinogen, or by the reciprocal of the acceptable exposure level (AEL) for the substance (in cubic meters/microgram) if the emission is not a carcinogen:
=

Facility Weighted Emission = where

n = number of toxic substances emitted by facility

Ei = amount of substance i emitted by facility in lbs/year

Qi = Unit Risk Value * 105 if i is a carcinogen; or

Qi = [Acceptable Exposure Level]-1 if i is not a carcinogen

FT = Total amount of fees to be collected by the District to cover District and State of California AB 2588 costs as most recently adopted by the Board of Directors of the California Environmental Protection Agency, Air Resources Board, and set out in the most recently published "Amendments to the Air Toxics "Hot Spots" Fee Regulation," published by that agency.
= Number of facilities with emissions in current District Toxic Emissions Inventory greater than 1000 weighted pounds per year.
= Number of facilities with emissions in current District Toxic Emissions Inventory greater than 50 weighted pounds per year and less than 1000 weighted pounds per year.
= Number of gasoline-product-dispensing nozzles in currently permitted Gasoline Dispensing Facilities.
=

Surcharge per pound of weighted emissions for each pound in excess of 1000 weighted pounds per year, where sL is given by the following formula:
