SAN DIEGO COUNTY
AIR POLLUTION CONTROL
NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
Notice, pursuant to State of California Health and Safety Code Section 40725, is hereby given of a public hearing on April 9, 2003, at 9:00 a.m., before the Air Pollution Control Board of the County of San Diego, in Room 310, County Administration Center, 1600 Pacific Highway, San Diego, cAlifornia, for the purpose of receiving public comments on and considering amendments to Rule 67.3 - Metal Parts and Products Coating Operations.
Rule 67.3 regulates emission of volatile organic compounds (VOC) from painting metal parts and products and related drying and cleaning processes.
The District proposes amending Rule 67.3 to exempt low-usage coating applied to specialty custom made signs, including signs fabricated either from metals or from the combination of metals with other substrates. This exemption would establish a new, higher VOC content limit but would apply only of not more than 20 gallons of such coatings are used at a stationary source in each consecutive twelve- month period.
The proposed amendment could result in additional countywide VOC emission of up to 740 pounds per year. This is less than one tenth of one percent of total emissions from all sources subject to Rule 67.3
The District has determined that these additional VOC emissions are negligible and has prepared a Negative Declaration pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).
The Board may consider modifications to the proposal which may be deemed appropriate.
Written comments concerning the proposal are also invited. Please submit written comments at least one week before the hearing date, addressed to:
