Env-A 1400, Regulated Toxic Air Pollutants Informational Webinar and Draft Rule
On September 8, 2020, the Air Resources Division (ARD) conducted an informational webinar to present the proposed changes to Env-A 1400 Regulated Toxic Air Pollutants. Please refer to both a recording of the webinar and the presentation for more information on the proposed changes to the rule. The formaldehyde ambient air limits have been revised as a result of stakeholder comments. ARD is also proposing to retain the AALs for hydrogen sulfide from the existing Env-A 1400.
ARD presented the revised draft rule to the Air Resources Council in January, 2021. Interested stakeholders and the public will be able to provide comments during the public comment period and at the public hearing (tentatively scheduled for March) once the formal rulemaking begins. All questions or comments about the proposed rule should be directed to Karla McManus at [email protected] or (603) 271- 6854.
