The framework of California regulatory standards is shifting alongside the growing implementation of Rule 1466 – Control of Particulate Emissions from Soils with Toxic Air Contaminants (Rule 1466). First implemented by the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) in 2018, regulators outside SCAQMD are applying Rule 1466 requirements to brownfields remediation projects throughout California. New guidelines include updated requirements for monitoring volatile compounds (VOCs) and toxic air contaminants (TAC) such as arsenic, asbestos, cadmium, herbicides, hexavalent chromium, lead, mercury, nickel, pesticides, and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). In addition, Rule 1466 also heightens required precautions pertaining to dust control measures for contaminated soil and updated procedures for public notifications and reporting results.
Register for the 23rd Annual California CUPA Training Conference to learn more about the implications of Rule 1466. Gain insight from regulatory, technical, and legal perspectives in preparation for future brownfields projects. Join the presentation “Changes in Monitoring Particulate Emissions for Brownfields Sites” on 24 February 2021 at 3:00pm to hear from a cross section of the stakeholder community including Deepa Gandhi (EKI Environment & Water, Inc.)
