The Yolo-Solano Air Quality Management District (District) Hearing Board will conduct a Public Hearing on May 24, 2017 at 1:00 PM in the District’s Board Room, located at 1947 Galileo Court, Suite 103 in Davis, for the Woodland-Davis Clean Water Agency. This facility, located at 855 County Road 102 in Woodland, provides drinking water and fire protection to the cities of Woodland and Davis.
The purpose of this hearing is for the Board to consider granting relief for the Woodland-Davis Clean Water Agency from certain quarterly and annual process and emission limits for the diesel engine powered emergency generator, Permit to Operate No. P-41-16.
The facility experienced a utility power failure / system compromise on April 26, 2017 which has caused the facility to operate their emergency backup diesel engine full time to power operations at the facility. The permit to operate for this engine allows for only 200 hours of operation per year, which is expected to be exceeded before the repairs can be completed. The facility recently applied for and received an interim variance for relief for the immediate emergency plus the potential for some additional maintenance, testing, and emergency operations through the end of 2017.
