INTRODUCTION On September 15, 1971, the Board adopted Resolution 71-72 which accredited the emission control system submitted by Air Quality Products, Inc. The system is applicable for 1955 through 1965-model used light-duty vehicles for engines of size classifications (d), (e), and (f). In addition the Board imposed the condition that the installation of the air Quality Products system shall not become mandatory pursuant to Chapter 4 of the Health and Safety Code until it finds that the following have been satisfied: 1. The Board's reservations as to the system's reduction of emissions, durability, and effect on driveability are removed. 2. The device is accredited for 75 percent of the 1955 through 1965 light-duty vehicle population in California. 3. The device is available for installation. This report presents the staff's evaluation concerning subsequent information submitted by the applicant for removal of these restrictions and supplements the staff report of September 15, 1971 to the Board. ITEM Staff Report on a Study of Air Pollution from the Kaiser Steel Plan, Fontana, California. The study on air pollution from the Kaiser Steel Plant in Fontana, California has been completed. Copies of the report have been sent to the Board members under separate cover. The major findings and resulting recommendations are included in the attached, "Summary and Recommendations" from the report. The recommendations include actions that should be taken by the San Bernardino County Air Pollution Control District. The staff recommends that the report be transmitted to the District. This would be in accordance with the provisions of Section 39054 of the Health and Safety Code with the request that the District respond to the Board within 90 days concerning the recommendations. ITEM Staff Report on Applications From Cities and Counties to Continue Open Burning on Waste Disposal Sites. INTRODUCTION At its November 17, 1971 meeting, the Air Resources Board approved time extensions for 235 city or county disposal sites to use open fires for the purpose of disposal of solid waste after December 31, 1971. As of December 7, 1971, 31 additional requests for time extensions have been received, and evaluated. Of the 31 requests, 29 are approvable and 2 are not. In addition, the staff recommends rescinding approval for one dump that had been granted a limited time extension at the last Board meeting. ITEM Enforcement Regulations for New Vehicle Emissions Control Program. At the November 17, 1971 meeting, the Board conducted a public hearing on the proposed enforcement regulations to be adopted pursuant to Section 39154 of the Health and Safety Code. Under this section and the proposed regulations, the Board could withhold approval of new model vehicles if a manufacturer violated a law or regulation and failed to carry out corrective measures. The Board closed the public hearing, but held the record open for comments on changes in the regulations which were presented to the Board and the industry for the first time that day. At the time of preparation of this board book, the record was still open. Accordingly, the revised regulations are not attached, but will be presented at the meeting. However, it appears at this time that few additional changes will be proposed.
