This webinar by James Westbrook, President of BlueScape Environmental, provides an overview of how to create a CEQA Air Quality Analysis. The first section of the webinar discusses when an Air Quality Analysis must be completed under CEQA; project types including construction and operation phases; air pollutant emission sources and applicable CEQA significance thresholds; how to construct a conservative analysis while filling in assumption “holes;” review of project alternatives and mitigation requirements; the role of air agencies in CEQA review and relationship to other actions such as air permitting; special analysis cases; and strategies to work with agencies and the public throughout the air quality impact review process. The webinar is presented from the standpoint of CEQA air quality guidelines provided by the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD).
The second part of the webinar presents a technical discussion on methods and tools used to complete air quality studies, including CalEEMod emission modeling software, CARB EMFAC and OFFROAD databases, and AERMOD and HARP2 impact modeling software. A case example for completing an air quality study for a commercial development using CalEEMod is presented.
