Final 2018 Regional Sulfur Dioxide Emissions and Milestone Report

This page displays a legal notice informing the public of a determination by the Environmental Health Department that regional emissions of sulfur dioxide for calendar year 2018 in air quality jurisdictions participating in the Sulfur Dioxide Emissions and Milestone Program (which include New Mexico and Albuquerque - Bernalillo County) are below the regulatory threshold that would otherwise have triggered an emissions trading program for sulfur dioxide in the participating jurisdictions. The details of this determination are set forth in an annual report required in certain circumstances in accordance with the Albuquerque - Bernalillo County element of New Mexico's Regional Haze State Implementation Plan, pursuant to requirements of the Environmental Protection Agency's Regional Haze Rule, 40 CFR Part 51, Section 309.

DETERMINATION THAT THE 2018 REGIONAL MILESTONE HAS BEEN MET UNDER THE SULFUR DIOXIDE MILESTONE AND BACKSTOP TRADING PROGRAM AS REQUIRED BY THE REGIONAL HAZE STATE IMPLEMENTATION PLAN

The City of Albuquerque, Environmental Health Department ("EHD"), has made the following determination, which is required by the Section 309 Regional Haze State Implementation Plan Element, Albuquerque - Bernalillo County, New Mexico ("Regional Haze SIP"), IV, Section C, Part A3.11. EHD made the determination in cooperation with the Western Regional Air Partnership ("WRAP") and air quality management agencies of the states of New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming (“Participating States").

EHD, WRAP, and the Participating States calculated emissions, adjusted the emissions, and compared them to the annual regional milestone in accordance with the provisions of the Regional Haze SIPs for Albuquerque - Bernalillo County and the Participating States. Details of the emissions reports, calculations, adjustments, and comparison to the annual regional milestone are set forth in the 2018 Regional Sulfur Dioxide Emissions and Milestone Report (“2018 Milestone Report”), which is available for download at https://www.cabq.gov/airquality/documents/final-2018-milestone-report.pdf. On March 11, 2020, the Albuquerque-Bernalillo County Air Quality Control Board approved the 2018 Milestone Report.

Based on the 2018 Milestone Report, the adjusted annual regional emissions of sulfur dioxide in the Participating States and Albuquerque - Bernalillo County from sources subject to the sulfur dioxide milestone and backstop trading program ("Milestone Program") provided for in the Regional Haze SIP, totaled 71,994 tons (reported emissions were 62,754 tons).

Also based on the 2018 Milestone Report, the adjusted annual regional sulfur dioxide emissions total of 71,994 tons is lower than the annual regional milestone of 141,849 tons established in the Regional Haze SIP. Therefore, the annual regional milestone has been satisfied and the Western Emissions Backstop Trading Program provided for in the Regional Haze SIP has not been triggered.

DETERMINACIÓN DE QUE SE HA CUMPLIDO EL HITO REGIONAL DE 2018 EN EL MARCO DEL PROGRAMA DE INTERCAMBIO DE RESPALDO E HITO DE DIÓXIDO DE AZUFRE, TAL COMO SE EXIGE EN EL PLAN DE APLICACIÓN DE LOS ESTADOS DE NIEBLA REGIONAL

El Departamento de Salud Ambiental de la Ciudad de Albuquerque ("EHD", siglas en inglés), ha tomado la siguiente determinación, que es requerida por la Sección 309 del Elemento del Plan de Implementación Estatal de Niebla Regional, Albuquerque - Condado de Bernalillo, Nuevo México ("SIP de Niebla Regional"), IV, Sección C, Parte A3.11. El EHD tomó la determinación en cooperación con la Asociación Regional del Aire del Oeste ("WRAP", siglas en inglés) y los organismos de gestión de la calidad del aire de los estados de Nuevo México, Utah y Wyoming ("Estados participantes").

EHD, WRAP y los Estados Participantes calcularon las emisiones, ajustaron las emisiones y las compararon con el hito regional anual de conformidad con las disposiciones del SIP de la Niebla Regional para Albuquerque - Condado de Bernalillo y los Estados Participantes. Los detalles de los informes de emisiones, los cálculos, los ajustes y la comparación con el hito regional anual se establecen en el Informe de Objetivos y Emisiones Regionales de Dióxido de Azufre de 2018 ("Informe del Hito de 2018"), que se puede descargar en https://www.cabq.gov/airquality/documents/final-2018-milestone-report.pdf. El 11 de marzo de 2020, el Consejo de Control de Calidad del Aire de Albuquerque - Condado de Bernalillo - aprobó el Informe del Hito del 2018.

En base al Informe del Hito del 2018, las emisiones regionales anuales ajustadas de dióxido de azufre en los Estados Participantes y en Albuquerque - Condado de Bernalillo de fuentes sujetas al programa del hito e intercambio de respaldo de dióxido de azufre ("Programa del Hito") proporcionado en el SIP de Niebla Regional, totalizaron en 71,994 toneladas (las emisiones reportadas fueron 62,754 toneladas).

También sobre la base del Informe de Hito de 2018, el total anual ajustado de las emisiones regionales de dióxido de azufre de 71.994 toneladas es inferior al hito regional anual de 141.849 toneladas establecido en el SIP de la Niebla Regional. Por lo tanto, el hito regional anual se ha cumplido y no se ha puesto en marcha el Programa de Intercambio de Respaldo de Emisiones de Occidente previsto en el SIP de la Niebla Regional.
