NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARINGPLACER COUNTY AIR POLLUTION CONTROL DISTRICTRULE 503 EMISSION STATEMENT AMENDMENT
A public hearing will be held beginning at 2:30 P.M., Thursday, October 8, 2020, before the Board of Directors of the Placer County Air Pollution Control District (District) for the purpose of reviewing the proposed amendments to Rule 503 Emission Statement and providing the public with an opportunity to comment.
The United State Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) published the final rule to implement the 2015 ozone national ambient air quality standard on December 6, 2018 (83 FR 62998). The implementation rule requires emission statements from owners or operators of each stationary source of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in Placer County in accordance with Section 182(a)(3)(B) of the federal Clean Air Act. The District proposes the Rule 503 amendment as a revision to State Implementation Plan for ozone to comply with this federal regulation for emission statement requirements. Comments regarding the proposed rule amendments may be submitted in writing to Placer County Air Pollution Control District at 110 Maple Street, Auburn, CA 95603. Inquiries may be directed to Yushuo Chang at (530) 745-2325.
