Proposed New Rule

Staff Report 09/27/2022 10/27/2022

The Butte County Air Quality Management District (District) is proposing adoption of a new regulation, Rule 270–Asbestos Demolition and Renovation to limit the emissions of asbestos to the atmosphere and require appropriate work practice standards and waste disposal procedures for all renovations or demolitions and asbestos waste disposal sites within the District unless exempted by the Rule.  This regulation is currently enforced by the California Air Resources Board (CARB).  The adoption of this rule will transfer the responsibility of oversight locally to the District.
