AGENDA ITEM 5 A White Paper on Implications of the Ozone SIP Shortfalls On Conformity Finding Of 2000 Regional Transportation Improvement Program In South Coast Air Basin Southern California Association of Governments May 17, 2000 Prepared by: Charles Keynejad, AICP Senior Transportation Analyst Tel: (213) 236-1915 FAX; (213) 236-1962 Keynejad@scag.ca.gov 5 ')001S0 Implications of the Ozone SIP Shortfalls On The 2000 RTIP Conformity. Findings In South Coast Air Basin And Potential Approaches to Remedy Shortfalls (SCAG — May 17, 2000) Background - SIP Shortfalls In late April 2000, the California Air Resources Board (ARB) announzed a series of State Implementation Plan (SIP) shortfalls for the 1-hour Ozone SIPs. The SIP shortfalls are the results of failure to implement fully some of the emission reduction control measures established in the SIP for demonstration of the air quality attainment. All shortfalls are attributable to the State sponsored control measures. Ozone has two precursors, reactive organic gas (ROG) and nitrogen dioxide (NOx). The SIP shortfalls were evaluated for both precursors and for the years 1999, 2002, 2005, 2008, and 2010 ( attainment year). Every three years, the SIP must demonstrate reasonable further progress, and the shortfall evaluation addressed all milestone and attainment years. In the SCAG region, the South Cast Air Basin (SCAB) has been severely affected by the SIP shortfalls. In other words, the 1997 Ozone (1-hour standard) SIPS for the SCAB have been affected by the State sponsored control measure shortfalls (see the following table). 1997 Ozone SIP Shortfalls (tons/day) for On -road Mobile Sources (SCAB) 97 Ozone 1999 12002 l 2005 2008 2010 (attainment veal-) SIP ROG I NOx I ROG I NOx f ROG NOx ROG NOx I ROG I NOx Shortfall 1 -115 f -34.0 { -16 2 + -17.0 t -17.6 I -12.4 I -26.4 11 8.9 I -27.8 27.0 Based on the measures incorporated into the 1997 Ozone SIP As indicated above, the ROG shortfalls increase with time and the NOx shortfalls decrease. The ROG shortfalls are very significant, particularly in the year 2010 — attainment year. The State sponsored control measures that caused these shortfalls apply to the following State control measures in the SCAB: • • Enhanced Inspection and Maintenance WM) Program (Smog Check II) • (M 1) - Car Scrappage Program • (M2) - Low -Emission Vehicle II (LEVII) Program • (M4) - Incentive for Clean Engine Program • (M5) - California Heavy Duty NOx Standard Program • (M6) - National Heavy Duty NOx Standard (Federal Program) • (M 17) - Additional Reductions from Heavy Duty Vehicle Program �n01 S.1 ) The 2000 RTIP will program more than S 22 billion in projects over the next six fiscal _years. .About 80% of the RTIP expenditures are in the South Coast Air Basin. Since the 1998 RTIP ( current RTIP) will expire on October 1, 2000, SCAG must have a nev.• federally approved and conforming RTIP by September 30, 2000, to avoid being put in a position of lapsed conformity and the loss of authority to initiate new projects. The 2000 RTIP must pass several conformity tests, including: • Regional emission test, comparing the 2000 RTIP emissions with the 1997 Ozone SIP emission budgets [to pass this test the 2000 RTIP emissions must be equal or less than the SIP emissions budgets]. ■ Timely implementation of the transportation control measures (TCMs), i.e. high occupancy vehicle (HOV), transit (bus, rail, and smart shuttle), and rideshare program, (to pass this test all TCM projects must be fully funded and on schedule which they are). The 1997 Ozone SIP shortfall of 17.8 tons per day for ROG for the year 2010 (attainment year), imposes a serious challenge to making conformity finding of the 2000 RTIP. A preliminary regional emission analysis of the 2000 RTTP, examining the year 2010 ROG regional emission, indicates that the regional emissions will be 14 to 16 tons per day above the conformity threshold (applicable emission budget) of 80.73 tons per day. Conclusion Unless. these SIP shortfalls are reduced conformity findings for the upcoming RTIP and the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) can not be made. A preliminary list of potential approaches to remedy the current situation is outlined in the following page. �n01S3 3 AGENDA ITEM 6 Riverside County Transportation Commission .3560 University Avenue Suite 100 • Riverside, Califon:ia 92501 phone: (909)787-7141 • fax: (909)787-7920 • www.rctc.org DATE: June 19, 2000 TO: Technical Advisory Committee FROM: Marilyn Williams, Director of Regional Issues and Communications SUBJECT: CMAQ Clean Fuels Opportunity Fund Technical Analysis Findings At the May 2000 Technical Advisory Committee meeting, Commission Staff and its Air Quality Technical Consultant, Ray Gorski, presented information regarding possible objective and subjective criteria for use by the Committee in its evaluation of the CMAQ Clean Fuels Opportunity Fund applications. As you'll recall, eight (8) projects were received in the first hour of the open application period for Category 1 - Implementation of New or Expanded Alternative Fuel Infrastructure totaling $2.3 M in funding requests. A reserve amount of $1.45 M was set -aside for Category 1. Given that the Category was over -subscribed, it was determined by the Committee that a more in-depth evaluation of the projects was appropriate to supplement the first -come, first serve emphasis of the CMAQ call for projects. After significant discussion, the Committee took action to direct Staff to prepare a technical analysis of the Category 1 projects submitted as of May 15th including the following five objective criteria that were required elements of the application: 1) Adherence to Checklist Requirements 2) Initial Operations Fuel Throughput 3) Quantified Emissions Reduction Potential 4) Cost Effectiveness Based on Initial Fuel Throughput 5) Cost Effectiveness Based on Emissions Reduction Potential The findings of the technical analysis are attached as :Exhibit A. Each individual application evaluation report includes a brief description of the project along with a summary of other relevant factors noted by the application. The last section of each report details Staff analysis of the five objective criteria. Staff will review the information at the June meeting and be available for questions regarding its findings. As requested by the Committee, copies of each application will be provided at the meeting for its use in the evaluation process.

A total of eight (8) applications were received in response to Category l: Implementation of New or Expanded Alternative Fuel Infrastructure. These applications have been evaluated in accordance with the Objective Evaluation Criteria adopted by the RCTC Technical Advisory Committee at their May 15, 2000 meeting. These objective criteria quantify each project's potential to displace conventional fuels and reduce motor vehicle air pollution emissions. In all cases, the emissions reductions were quantified using methodologies recommended by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) for the evaluation of CMAQ projects' or by the California Air Resources Board for lower emission heavy-duty engines. This work was performed under contract to the Riverside County Transportation Commission. Please note that the analyses, representations, and opinions expressed herein are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect that of the Riverside County Transportation Commission. Please note that the technical evaluations of applications submitted in response to Call for Projects Categories 2, 3, and 4 will be documented in subsequent reports. 2.1 Technical Approach The RCTC Technical Advisory Committee adopted the following five (5) objective evaluation criteria: 1. Adherence to Checklist Requirements: Assesses each application as to whether or not all mandatory elements were provided at the time of initial application submission; 2. Initial Operations Fuel Throughput: Based upon the information provided, each station's initial fuel utilization, measured as alternative fuel throughput per month, was calculated. 3. Quantified Emissions Reduction Potential: This criterion is based upon the type of vehicle(s) that will utilize each refueling station in its initial operational capacity. The estimated emissions reductions attributable to the alternative fuel vehicles are quantified. 4. Cost -Effectiveness based on Initial Fuel Throughput: This criterion is defined as "ROTC Funding divided by annual alternative fuel throughput in equivalent diesel gallons", or "dollars per equivalent gallon". The calculations are annualized over the three (3) year minimum facility operational availability as specified in the Call for Projects Participation Guidelines, Requirements, and Conditions. Based upon guidance from the RCTC Technical Advisory Committee, this criterion is defined as to only consider the anticipated fuel usage for the portion of the station that RCTC is co funding.
