Vapor Recovery Program for Gasoline Dispensing and Storage

The California Air Resources Board Enhanced Vapor Recovery (EVR) regulations for gasoline dispensing facilities became state law on April 1, 2001. New installations and existing facilities undergoing major modifications are required to comply with EVR regulations. An Authority to Construct to modify gasoline dispensing and storage vapor recovery from the District is required prior to the start of construction.

San Luis Obispo County Revised Enhanced Vapor Recovery (EVR) Deadline

In 2007 the APCD advised operators of existing facilities that November 16, 2010 would be our County's deadline for EVR implementation because of a change to SLO County's air quality status for the federal ozone standard. After additional consideration by the ARB, the deadline for EVR implementation for gasoline facilities located in SLO County has been postponed until July 26, 2011. Please apply for an Authority to Construct from the San Luis Obispo County Air Pollution Control District (APCD) well before the deadline to avoid unnecessary delays in obtaining agency approvals.
