Environmental Reporting – Air, Waste, Water

Introduction to Environmental Reporting

As we enter 2020, EH&S managers are preparing themselves for the array of environmental reports that will need to be completed for operations that occurred in 2019, including hazardous materials, hazardous waste, storm water, industrial wastewater, and air quality reports. This 60-minute webinar will focus on the reporting requirements from the local Air Districts, California Air Resources Board (CARB), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC), Regional Water Quality Control Boards (RWQCBs), and local Certified Unified Program Agencies (CUPAs). The webinar will give you an overview of common air, water, and waste reports, the thresholds that require these reports to be completed, the systems used to report, clarification on what is included, and submittal deadlines.

Air Quality

 

AB 617 – Statewide Requirements for Reporting and Reducing Air Pollutants Update

In July 2017, the Governor of California approved AB 617, which requires the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to adopt new requirements to analyze and reduce air pollution. This complimentary webinar will summarize and discuss the new California statewide requirements that may impact facilities, including:

  • Statewide emissions reporting of greenhouse gases, criteria pollutants, and toxic air pollutants;
  • New statewide Best Available Retrofit Control Technology (BARCT) requirements;
  • New community monitoring, with a focus on high-priority areas;
  • Fenceline monitoring for facilities required by local districts; and
  • A statewide strategy to reduce emissions of toxic air contaminants and criteria air pollutants in affected communities.

CEQA Air Quality Technical Reports

This Webinar focuses on the detail of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) -Air Quality and Greenhouse Gas (GHG) requirements. Impacts to air quality from project criteria and toxic pollutant emissions and impacts related to GHG emissions are often key issues for industrial and commercial projects when -seeking CEQA approval. This 1-hour complimentary webinar will review the CEQA basics, such as when CEQA is applicable and what types of environmental documentation may be required. The emissions quantification process will be reviewed for project stationary and mobile sources. Important decisions made last year as a result of CEQA lawsuits and changes made to the CEQA Guidelines that took effect on January 1, 2019, will be covered. Lastly, Yorke staff will share some of our lessons learned in getting through the CEQA and air permitting processes.

CEQA Noise Technical Reports

Economic and environmental pressures in California have created a growing market for development projects, often on available parcels near established neighborhoods. For these projects, noise generated by construction activities and long-term operations affecting neighbors can be a key issue when addressing the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), particularly when seeking a Class 32 Categorical Exemption from a City or County planning agency. This complimentary 1-hour webinar will review the key components of a CEQA noise impacts analysis, including an overview of quantitative noise modeling methodologies, environmental noise settings, state and local noise regulations, project-generated noise impacts assessment, and noise mitigation measures. Lastly, Yorke staff will share some of our experiences in performing CEQA noise analyses in urban settings.

Odor Quantification and Control

This webinar will address how air quality odors are handled from a regulatory standpoint, as well as odor quantification, odor monitoring systems, odor modeling, odor control systems, and generally how to address odor issues. There are numerous odorous chemicals; however, as an example, hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is known to be a common odor-causing compound and odor nuisance that can be detected in some individuals as low as 0.5 parts per billion (ppb). Monitoring for H2S or other odors presents unique challenges due to the intermittency of source strength, the limitations to the instrument detection levels and operating data acquisition systems that manage instantaneous and short-term averaging periods, as well as threshold notifications. Each odor compound will have unique control system requirements. This webinar will cover common odor situations and practical steps that can be taken to address odor complaints.

Hazardous Waste / Storm Water

Haz Waste/New Used Oil Statute

In contrast to the federal and most states’ hazardous waste regulations, California used oil generators have typically had to manage their used oil as a fully regulated hazardous waste. Finally, some relief: California’s Assembly Bill (AB) 2928 amended Section 25250.19 of the California Health and Safety Code to allow generators of “highly controlled used oil” to manage the oil as a non-hazardous waste effective January 1, 2019. However, while some generators have charged ahead, many more either don’t know about the changes or are awaiting guidance from the DTSC or their local CUPA as to how exactly the statutory requirements are being interpreted. Such guidance has so far not been forthcoming. This webinar will review who is eligible to manage their used oil as non-hazardous, the requirements that must be met to do so, and the key uncertainties that may be leading to hesitancy in many cases.

Storm Water New 2020 NELs/TNALs

California’s General Permit for Discharges of Storm Water Associated with Industrial Activities (IGP), issued since 1992, has utilized “benchmarks” and “numeric action levels” (NALs). However, amendments to the IGP that will become effective on July 1, 2020, will change this by adopting enforceable numeric effluent limits (NELs) for specified water bodies. Several large urban watersheds in southern California in particular will have very low limits set for metals, with some other water bodies across the State also affected in a somewhat more limited fashion for most industrial facilities. A second set of action levels known as “TNALs” are also being adopted for a different set of water bodies and watersheds, some of which phase in over a period of years. NEL and TNAL concentrations are frequently below the current NAL concentrations, which means that affected facilities need to start developing compliance strategies as soon as possible. This webinar will outline the affected water bodies/watersheds and the new standards that will be applied, and discuss potential strategies for dealing with this major permit change.

Industrial Hygiene & Safety

Personal Exposure Monitoring

Cal/OSHA Title 8 Section 5155 requires that air monitoring be performed if there is a possibility that exposures to airborne contaminants may exceed the regulatory levels listed in Table AC-1. Some chemicals require establishing a baseline exposure by performing initial air monitoring. There are so many chemicals in a workplace, how do you prioritize which monitoring should be performed? It is best to approach your air monitoring by formulating a logical plan of attack. This webinar will walk you through the process of developing and implementing an industrial hygiene monitoring plan.

New OSHA Heat Regulations

Cal/OSHA is preparing to go to the standards board with the new “Heat Illness Prevention in Indoor Places of Employment” standard. This will be a new section in the General Industry Safety Orders. This standard is overdue, Cal/OSHA was mandated by law to send a rule to the Standards Board on January 1, 2019. Previously cited under the General Duty clause, Cal/OSHA is making this a more easily enforceable citation by creating a standard. This standard applies to all indoor work areas where the temperature equals or exceeds 82 degrees Fahrenheit when employees are present.

The revised draft standard was published on April 22, 2019. In this presentation we will review the following:

Which places of employment will be affected;
Required written components;
Exemptions to parts of the standard; and  Required training.

Conducting a Job Hazard Analysis

A job hazard analysis (JHA), also called a job safety analysis (JSA), is a technique to identify the dangers of specific tasks in order to reduce the risk of injury to workers. Cal/OSHA Title 8 Section 3203 requires that facilities have a procedure for identifying and evaluating workplace hazards with scheduled periodic inspections to identify unsafe conditions and work practices. Once hazards are recognized, they can be reduced or eliminated before anyone gets hurt. This webinar will discuss the JHA process, who should be conducting the analysis, and what the next steps are when the JHA is complete.
