CEQA & SJVAPCD Rules and Regulations

The SJVUAPCD issues permits for many types of air pollution sources and regulates some activities not requiring permits. The SJVUAPCD is a Responsible Agency for projects requiring permits. (See GAMAQI page 30)

Fugitive Dust/PM-10 Control

Regulation VIII

Regulation VIII is a series of rules designed to reduce fugitive dust from construction sites, parking and staging areas, open areas, material storage areas, etc. No permits are required by this regulation, but failure to comply can result in fines and penalties. The District provides a synopsis describing requirements and exemptions from Regulation VIII when commenting on projects.

Residential Wood-Burning

Rule 4901

Requires new woodstoves sold in the San Joaquin Valley to be EPA certified. Includes a voluntary curtailment program for poor air quality days. Does not regulate normal fireplaces.

New Source Review Rule

Rule 2201

Requires new and modified stationary sources of emissions to mitigate emissions using best available control technology and to offset emissions when above thresholds.

Permits Required

Rule 2010

Requires operators of emission sources to obtain an authority to construct and permit to operate from the SJVUAPCD.
