Public Notice: Proposed Approval of California Air Plan Revisions, Butte County Air Quality Management District

Publish Date: 04/11/2017


The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to approve a revision to the Butte County Air Quality Management District (BCAQMD) portion of the California State Implementation Plan (SIP). This revision concerns the necessary procedures to create emission reduction credits (ERCs) from the reduction of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), oxides of nitrogen, oxides of sulfur, particulate matter and carbon monoxide emissions due to the permanent curtailment of burning rice straw. We are proposing to approve a local rule that provides administrative procedures for creating ERCs consistent with Clean Air Act (CAA or the Act) requirements.
