Public Notices for Stationary Source Permits

Public Notice for Plumas 134, LP is accepting public comments until May 24, 2021.

State law requires that the Air District must notify the public when it receives a permit application for a new or modifiedsource of toxic air contaminants located within 1,000 feet of a school site. To comply with this requirement, the Air District distributes a Public Notice to the parents or guardians of students enrolled at schools located within 1,000 feet of the proposed source, and all residents and businesses located within 1,000 feet of the proposed source.

A description of the proposed project:

Plumas 134, LP has applied for an Authority to Construct/Permit to install a new diesel-fueled emergency backup generator located at 1764 Driftwood Court in Plumas Lake, CA. The emergency generator set consists of an alternator and an internal combustion engine. Internal combustion engines emit air contaminants including oxides of nitrogen, carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds, oxides of sulfur, and particulate matter. The emergency generator will be used to generate power during emergency conditions only at a sewer lift station. The emergency engine will be periodically tested to ensure that it will generate electricity when needed.

The District is currently evaluating the application and hereby invites written public comment in accordancewith California Health and Safety Code 42301.6. Written comments must be received on or before February 15, 2021. Please send written comments to Christopher Brown, Air Pollution Control Officer, FRAQMD, 541 Washington Avenue, Yuba City, CA 95991.
