Information Regarding Industry Voluntary Reductions
Whereas, Jefferson County, Kentucky, is part of the Louisville interstate area that is not in attainment with the 8-hour ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standard;
Whereas, The voluntary emission reduction plan submitted by Greater Louisville, Inc. (GLI), and supported by many of the permitted major stationary sources located in Jefferson County, Kentucky, during the formal public comment period for proposed Regulation 6.51 did not identify the particular stationary sources that were going to reduce ozone precursor emissions by approximately 5675.3 pounds per summer day;
Whereas, Without the submittal of information regarding actual ozone precursor emissions reductions from the stationary sources included in the voluntary emission reduction plan submitted by GLI, the Board would not know whether these substantial ozone precursor emissions actually occurred; and
Whereas, KRS 77.215 authorizes the District to require, at any time, the submittal of information regarding the emissions of air contaminants; now, therefore, be it
Resolved, That the Louisville Metro Air Pollution Control Board requests that the District require each stationary source that was listed in section 3.3 of proposed Regulation 6.51, and any other stationary source that the District has reason to believe was included in the voluntary emission reduction plan submitted by GLI, to submit, in writing, to the District the following:
- By no later than July 15, 2003, provide a description of any voluntary ozone precursor emission reduction measures to be employed during the 2003 summer and an estimate, in pounds per summer day, of the resulting VOC and/or NOx emission reductions; and
- By no later than December 1, 2003, provide the actual VOC and/or NOx emission reductions, in both average pounds per summer day as well as total pounds, that occurred during the period beginning June 16, 2003, and ending September 15, 2003.
