AIR POLLUTION CONTROL DISTRICT
NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
IN MARIPOSA COUNTY EXCEEDING REASONABLY AVAILABLE
CONTROL TECHNOLOGY EMISSION THRESHOLDS FOR OIL AND GAS OPERATIONS
The Mariposa County Air Pollution Control District (District) proposes the regulatory action of adopting a determination, and making the Negative Declaration, that there are no emission sources in Mariposa County that exceed the Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) emission threshold established by the US EPA Control Technique Guideline (CTG) document for the Oil and Natural Gas Industry source category. Because the District is a moderate non-attainment area for ozone, Section 182(b)(2) of the Federal Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 (CAAA) requires the District to implement RACT for all sources covered by a CTG, or alternatively document that there are no sources in the District subject to the CTG. If adopted, the Negative Declaration will be submitted as a proposed revision to the State Implementation Plan (SIP).
The Board of Supervisors sitting as the District Board of Directors will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, March 10, 2020, at 9am or as soon thereafter as possible, at the Mariposa County Board of Supervisors Chambers, 5100 Bullion Street, Mariposa, California.
In addition, all interested parties are advised of the opportunity to comment in writing on the proposed action. The proposed Negative Declaration resolution and supporting documents can be viewed at the links below or at the District Office located at 5100 Bullion Street, Mariposa, California. Written comments should be addressed to David Conway, Deputy Air Pollution Control Officer, P.O. Box 5, Mariposa, CA 95338; or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org The District’s phone number is (209) 966-2220.
