District Rules and Regulations


Pursuant to California Health and Safety Code Section 40923, each air district with a state approved air quality attainment plan shall publish a list of regulatory measures scheduled or tentatively scheduled for consideration for that year.

During 2019, the Governing Board of the San Joaquin Valley Unified Air Pollution Control District (District) may consider amending the rules listed below. Rules not adopted or amended by the Governing Board in 2019 may be adopted in subsequent years. The District Governing Board may also consider adopting or amending other rules, as required to comply with local, state or federal requirements, or to address technical issues that may arise.

  • The Districtís adopted 2016 Plan for the 2008 8-Hour Ozone Standard, and 2018 Plan for the 1997, 2006, and 2012 PM2.5 Standards have commitments to amend District Rule 4311 (Flares). The District commits to amend Rule 4311 to include ultra-low NOx flare emission limitations for existing and new flaring activities and to include additional flare minimization requirements to the extent that such controls are technologically achievable and economically feasible.
  • The Districtís adopted 2018 Plan for the 1997, 2006, and 2012 PM2.5 Standards has a commitment to amend District Rule 4901 (Wood Burning Fireplaces and Wood Burning Heaters). The District commits to amend Rule 4901 to implement more stringent standards, incorporate a contingency measure, and implement the Districtís hot-spot strategy.
  • Rule 2201 (New and Modified Stationary Source Review). Amendments will satisfy requirements related to the Districtís reclassification from Moderate to Serious nonattainment for the 1997 and 2006 federal standards for PM2.5
  • Rule 4601 (Architectural Coatings). Amendments will satisfy federal Clean Air Act requirements for the 2008 ozone standard, by incorporating a contingency measure into the rule that would eliminate the small container exemption, should contingency be triggered for the 2008 ozone standard.

Prior to adopting or amending any rule, a notice is published in selected San Joaquin Valley newspapers and the District Governing Board accepts testimony at a public hearing. Copies of any proposed rules would be available via mail subscription at the District, at the District's website here when the rule is developed, and via email using the Districtís email list located here. Information on District rule development is available from District staff at (559)230-6100.
