TABLE 1c – CONTROL MEASURE SUMMARY FOR GDFs – UNDERGROUND TANKS
Control Measure Summary
VOC Emissions (tons/year) in 5-State MRPO Region
2002 existing measures:
P/V valve in Chicago and Metro East areas 2009 On-the Books measures:
Candidate measure: Require Air Pollution Control Device for UST Vent Measure ID: SOLV7C Emission Reductions: reduction of 28 to 72% from 2002 levels depending on the geographic coverage Control Cost: minimal if system recovers gasoline vapors and returns to storage tank Timing of Implementation: Assuming 2007 effective date of rule, emission reductions are achieved in 2009 Implementation Area: (1) 8-hr ozone nonattainment areas, (2) 8-hr ozone nonattainment areas plus adjacent counties, or (3) all counties in MRPO region
Notes: 2009 emission reductions shown are reductions for 2002 base emissions, assuming that control measures are implemented in all counties; 2009 emissions are not growth-adjusted.
Disclaimer: The control measures identified in this document represent an initial set of possible measures. The Midwest RPO States have not yet determined which measures will be necessary to meet the requirements of the Clean Air Act. As such, the inclusion of a particular measure here should not be interpreted as a commitment or decision by any State to adopt that measure. Other measures will be examined in the near future. Subsequent versions of this document will likely be prepared for evaluation of additional potential control measures.
