BAAQMD Permits for a San Francisco Bay Area Refinery



A San Francisco Bay area refinery wanted to construct several new facilities to comply with new regulations in the New Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) rule. Hart Crowser assisted with post-permit non-compliance issues. A sampling and analysis plan was prepared, volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions data were analyzed, and we interacted with the the pollution control equipment and monitoring instrumentation vendors. We also met with the BAAQMD inspectors to discuss permit conditions, compliance issues, and the facilities’ operations. Hart Crowser provided support to legal counsel in preparation of a due diligence defense.
