The Following Notice was Published by the District


Notice is hereby given that, in accordance with Regulation XIV - Title V Operating Permits, of the San Diego Air Pollution Control District's Rules and Regulations, the Air Pollution Control Officer has made a preliminary decision to approve Application No. 987001 for a significant permit modification to federal Title V Operating Permit No. 960991 for Solar Turbines Incorporated, a turbine manufacturing facility located at 4200 Ruffin Road, San Diego, California. The permit modification would change the procedure for calculating oxides of nitrogen (NOx) emissions calculation. The new procedure requires the calculation be based on the current year's test data to determine compliance with the facility emission limit if emissions calculated in accordance with the existing procedure exceed 158.3 tons per year. The existing procedure requires the use of the highest annual average emission factor obtained during the previous five years.
An evaluation of the air pollution impacts of this proposal was performed by the District and it was determined that all applicable District Rules and Regulations will be met when the equipment complies with conditions prescribed by the District. The modification will result in no hourly, daily or annual emissions increase of air pollutants from the facility.
The District is seeking comments on the proposed modifications to the Title V Operating Permit for this facility. Written comments concerning the District's proposed action may be submitted for a period of 30-days, commencing on October 16, 2008, and ending on November 14, 2008. Please direct your comments to the attention of Stan Romelczyk, Air Pollution Control District, 10124 Old Grove Road, San Diego, California, 92131. Documents relating to the proposed action are available for public review at this address.
Should you have any questions regarding this notice or wish to make an appointment to review documents related to this action, please contact Stan Romelczyk at (858) 586-2717.
Members of the public may petition for a public hearing to receive comments on the proposed Title V Operating Permit. If the Air Pollution Control Officer determines that good cause exists, a public hearing will be scheduled.
