Request For Proposals

Mono Basin PM-10 State Implementation Plan Development


A. Introduction

Great Basin is seeking proposals from qualified consultants to assist with the development of an air quality management plan to control the dust emissions from the exposed playa around Mono Lake in Mono County, California. The plan is intended to be used as the State Implementation Plan (SIP) for the Mono Basin PM-10 planning area. Assistance shall include, but not be limited to: summarizing air quality and soil erosion data, researching and summarizing the air quality related information for the SIP and ultimately writing the SIP under the direction of the Deputy Air Pollution Control Officer. Presented below is a brief background, the objectives of the proposed project, a scope of work and a schedule.

B. Background

Recent ambient air monitoring for PM-10 (particulate matter less than 10 microns nominal aerodynamic diameter) has shown that violations of the Federal PM-10 National Ambient Air Quality Standard (Standard) occur in the area around Mono Lake. These violations are caused by wind blown dust that is generated from the exposed lakebed around Mono Lake. In December 1992, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) gave notice to the Governor of California that the U.S. EPA intended to designate the Mono Basin as a non-attainment area for the federal PM-10 Standard. With this designation the U.S. EPA will require the State to submit a SIP for the Mono Basin that will assess the source of the violations and will propose a solution that will bring the area into attainment with the PM-10 standard as soon as practicable.

C. Project Objectives

1. Summarize meteorological and ambient air quality data.

2. Assess the source areas for PM-10 dust production.

3. Determine the effects of control methods on PM-10 production and the associated impact on air quality.

4. Write a SIP suitable for adoption.



D. Scope of Work

The consultant shall work under the direction of the Deputy Air Pollution Control Officer (DAPCO). All assignments shall be approved by the DAPCO prior to implementation. Information and reports from tasks 1 through 3 are intended to be used in the draft SIP in task 4.

Task 1: Summarize meteorological and ambient air quality data for inclusion in the SIP.

The objective of this task is to determine the relative frequency of high wind events that could cause a dust storm at Mono Lake and a violation of the PM-10 standard. Data will be provided by Great Basin in a computer format suitable for a computer spreadsheet or data base.

Task 2: Assess PM-10 source areas.

The objective of this task is summarize the available information on the source areas for PM-10 production, including locations, size, frequency of blowable emissions, and erosion rates. We estimate there will be 5 data collection periods (dust storms) to summarize. Maps and reports will be provided by Great Basin.

Task 3: Determine the effects of control techniques on PM-10 dust production and the impact on the air quality.

This task will include summarizing and, if necessary, refining the results from the air quality modeling that is being performed to assess the impact of the wind blown dust on the ambient PM-10 concentrations and determining the reduction due to increased lake levels. A modeling report which will be completed under another contract will be provided by Great Basin.

Task 4: Write the Mono Basin PM-10 SIP.

The contractor shall draft the PM-10 SIP in accordance with the requirements of the federal Clean Air Act. To help ensure completeness of the SIP, the contractor shall work with the DAPCO to develop an outline prior to writing the draft SIP.

E. Project Funding and Duration

It is the District's intention to adopt the PM-10 SIP by December 31, 1993. Currently, funds are available for this project through June 30, 1993. If funding becomes available to continue the effort after June 30, the contract may be extended to continue efforts and complete the SIP by the end of 1993.

F. Schedule

The following are the key dates in the effort to award a contract for the proposed project to the most qualified consultant:

February 1, 1993 RFPs sent out and made available to consultants.

February 26, 1993 Six copies of proposals due by 5:00 pm.

March 3, 1993 "Short list" consultants notified of interview.

March 9, 1993 "Short list" interviews.

March 11, 1993 Most qualified consultant selected.

March 17, 1993 Consultant executes contract.

March 24, 1993 Great Basin Board approves contract.
