The San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District (SJVAPCD) 2018 Plan for the 1997, 2006, and 2012 PM2.5 Standards (The PM2.5 Plan) has been approved by California Air Resources Board (CARB). The PM2.5 Plan outlines actions necessary to further improve the Valley's air quality and meet the federal air quality standards for fine particulates. The plan includes a range of proposed changes to existing district rules, clean air grants, and other innovative measures that will contribute to reducing air pollution from stationary and mobile sources. The following district rules have been identified for review and will likely see changes in emission limits and control measures in accordance with the PM2.5 Plan: Rule 4311 - Flares; Rule 4306 - Boilers, Steam Generators, and Process Heaters - Phase 3; Rule 4320 - Advanced Emission Reduction Options for Boilers, Steam Generators, and Process Heaters Greater than 5.0 MMBtu/hr; Rule 4702 - Internal Combustion Engines; Rule 4354 - Glass Melting Furnaces; Rule 4352 - Solid Fuel-Fired Boilers, Steam Generators and Process Heaters; Rule 4550 - Conservation Management Practices; Rule 4692 - Commercial Charbroiling; and Rule 4901 - Wood Burning Fireplaces and Wood Burning Heaters (Hot-spot Strategy).
