Fueling stations may face repercussions for not adhering to AQCC regs
Here’s what you need to know
In that case, the inspector could and, in fact, has recommended enforcement actions to address the alleged violation(s) of the Air Quality Control Statutes and the Air Quality Control Commission (AQCC) Regulations, including AQCC Regulation 7. Reg 7 refers to, among other things, the control of hydrocarbons via oil and gas emissions, including the control of leaks from vapor collection or control systems at gasoline terminals, gasoline bulk plants and gasoline dispensing facilities.
If an inspector determines that a gasoline dispensing facility has fugitive emissions, CDPHE may schedule an enforcement hearing, possibly followed by fines. CGRS will provide updates as they become available.
In addition to the site visits, the APCD continues to conduct full and partial compliance evaluations to review air quality reporting records and verify administrative compliance with AQCC Regulation and any applicable Air Permit conditions.
If you have questions about AQCC Regulations 3 or 7, or need assistance determining if they apply to your Colorado business, please contact CGRS today.
