recmarine -- Spark-Ignition Marine Watercraft Workshop: El Monte on May 28, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. and Sacramento on June 4, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. Posted: 09 May 2014 14:19:15
The Air Resources Board (ARB) invites you to participate in a public workshop to discuss updates to the proposed evaporative emission regulation, test procedures, emissions inventory, and certification process for spark-ignition marine watercraft. Based on stakeholder comments, updates have been made to the proposed regulation, test procedures, and the boat certification application. Draft copies of these documents will be posted on ARBís website prior to the workshop. The workshop will be held at two locations as indicated below; each workshop will cover the same topics. The workshop will consist of a one hour presentation by staff, followed by a question-and-answer session. Date: May 28, 2014 Time: 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Location: California Air Resources Board Annex 3, Conference Room 100 9460 Telstar Ave. El Monte, CA 91731 Date: June 4, 2014 Time: 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Location: California Air Resources Board Monitoring and Laboratory Division 1927 13th Street , 1st Floor Conference Room Sacramento, CA 95811 An audio conference line and webinar will be set up to accommodate those who are unable to attend in person. The workshop agenda, call-in details, directions, parking information, and an electronic copy of the staff presentation will be posted prior to the workshop on ARBís website at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/offroad/recmarine/recmarine.htm. For more information please contact Scott Monday via phone at (916) 445-9319 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Background: At the 2009 spark-ignition marine watercraft workshop, staff presented a draft proposal to control evaporative emissions from spark-ignition marine watercraft. The draft proposal contained design standards and alternative performance standards for all watercraft that use gasoline-fueled, spark-ignited marine engines. The proposal was developed with extensive stakeholder input. Subsequent to the release of the proposal, staff identified the need to further improve the emissions inventory, certification, and test procedures. Subsequently, staff has made extensive updates to its inventory model to more accurately reflect the emissions in California, and has worked closely with stakeholder to resolve certification and test procedure issues. California is in a drought emergency. Visit www.SaveOurH2O.org for water conservation tips.
