GENERAL NOTICES/ERRATA
Vol. 29 Iss. 4 - October 22, 2012

STATE AIR POLLUTION CONTROL BOARD

Proposed Amendments to Northern Virginia Vehicle Emissions Inspection and Maintenance Program

Notice of action: The State Air Pollution Control Board is considering amendments to the Regulation for the Control of Motor Vehicle Emissions in Northern Virginia; specifically, provisions to implement a clean screen program that allows a motor vehicle owner to voluntarily certify compliance with the emissions standards by means of on-road remote sensing. The regulation of the board affected by this regulatory action is: Regulation for the Control of Motor Vehicle Emissions in Northern Virginia, 9VAC5-91, Clean Screen (Rev. MN).

Purpose of notice: The board is seeking comments through the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) on the (i) proposal, (ii) costs and benefits of the proposal, (iii) effects of the proposal on farm and forest land preservation, and (iv) impacts of the proposal on small businesses. The board is also seeking comment as to whether infrared light remote sensing devices (RSD) are the only technology to be used for clean screening vehicles or whether the regulation should include other technologies such as remote on-board diagnostics (OBD III). To that end, the proposal in 9VAC5-91-185 contains Option A (language that includes only infrared RSD) and Option B (language that includes both infrared and OBDIII).

Public comment period: September 24, 2012, to October 25, 2012.

Public comment stage: Notice of Public Comment.

Description of proposal: The proposed amendments are being made to conform to state law for the testing of emissions, including remote sensing, from motor vehicles located or primarily operated in Northern Virginia. Sections 46.2-1176 through 46.2-1187.3 of the Virginia Air Pollution Control Law (Chapter 10 of Title 46.2 of the Code of Virginia) authorizes the State Air Pollution Control Board to promulgate regulations for the control of motor vehicle emissions and for emissions testing including remote sensing. Specifically, the 2012 amendments to § 46.2-1178 C require the establishment by regulation of a phase-in of on-road testing requirements according to the following schedule: 10% of eligible vehicles subject to inspection requirements between July 1, 2012, and before July 1, 2013; 20% between July 1, 2013, and before July 1, 2014; and 30% after July 1, 2014.

The major provisions of the proposal are summarized below:

1. Include definitions that address the requirement for a clean screen program including terms such as: "Clean screen vehicle," "Clean screen notification," Clean screen vehicle standard," "High emitter values," "Motor vehicle emissions," "On-road clean screen program," "On-road emissions inspector," "On-road emissions measurement," "On-road high emitter emissions standard" and "Specific engine family."

2. Modify definitions as necessary to incorporate the clean screen program into the existing emissions inspection program including: "Confirmation test," "Emissions inspector," "Enhanced emissions inspection program," "Inspection area," Inspection fee," and "Remote sensing."

3. Provide clarity to distinguish between the high emitter program and the clean screen program and the vehicle emission standards for both. Add language that allows the criteria for clean screen vehicle selection and standards to be adjusted to comply with federal program requirements.

4. Provide language to integrate the clean screen program into the registration requirements of the enhanced emissions inspection program to ensure compliance with any necessary provisions of the existing inspection program.

5. Add provisions to address the legislative mandate to implement the clean screen program according to the statutory schedule of no more than 10% starting January 2012; no more than 20% starting January 2013; and no more than 30% starting January 2014, and ensure the program is compatible with the timing of the vehicle registration renewal notice from DMV. This also includes provisions so that owners may utilize the clean screen notification as proof of emissions inspection for vehicle registration purposes and language to ensure the contractor identifying clean screen vehicles may charge a fee for such notification that is comparable to the fee currently charged at service stations conducting emissions inspections.

6. Provide language in the alternate language of 9VAC5-91-185, Option B, necessary to allow for an on-road clean screen program utilizing remote onboard diagnostics.

The current vehicle inspection program in Northern Virginia requires that affected vehicles be presented to emissions inspection stations biennially to receive an emissions inspection. This is accomplished through a network of service stations, repair garages, and other similar facilities that perform the inspections. Cars and trucks that weigh up to 10,000 pounds and are 24 years old and newer are subject to an exhaust emissions inspection using ASM equipment which tests cars under "loaded" conditions using a dynamometer. On-Board Diagnostics Systems (OBD) on vehicles so equipped is also inspected. In addition, random testing of vehicles is accomplished using a remote sensing device next to the roadway. Vehicles which fail the on-road test are required to report to an inspection for an out-of-cycle test.

Locality particularly affected: The geographic coverage of the program consists of the counties of Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun, Prince William, and Stafford and the cities of Alexandria, Fairfax, Falls Church, Manassas, and Manassas Park. The amendments to the regulation establish an additional means for an owner to demonstrate a vehicle's compliance with emissions standards with no impact on air quality expected. Therefore, no locality in the program area will bear any disproportionate material air quality impact from any other locality within the program area.

How to comment: DEQ accepts written comments by email, fax, and postal mail. All written comments must include the full name, address and telephone number of the person commenting and be received by DEQ on the last day of the comment period. Both oral and written comments are accepted at the public hearing. DEQ prefers that comments be provided in writing, along with any supporting documents or exhibits. All comments, exhibits and documents received are part of the public record.

To review regulation documents: The proposal and an analysis conducted by DEQ (including a summary, legal basis, purpose, substance, issues, requirements more restrictive than federal, localities particularly affected, public participation, economic impact, alternatives, regulatory flexibility analysis, regulatory advisory panel, and family impact), are available on the DEQ Air Public Notices for Regulations website (http://www.deq.state.va.us/Programs/Air/PublicNotices/AirRegulations.aspx).

STATE CORPORATION COMMISSION

Bureau of Insurance

October 1, 2012

Administrative Letter 2012-10

To: All Property and Casualty Insurers and Other Interested Parties

Re: Licensing of Public Adjusters in Virginia, effective January 1, 2013

During the 2012 General Assembly session, the Virginia General Assembly enacted legislation that established standards for the licensing of public adjusters in the Commonwealth of Virginia. House Bill No. 872 and Senate Bill No. 520, which currently appear in Article 4.1 of Chapter 18 (§§ 38.2-1845.1 through 38.2-1845.23) of Title 38.2 of the Code of Virginia, provide that beginning on January 1, 2013, any resident and nonresident individual or business entity that acts as a public adjuster in Virginia must obtain a license from the State Corporation Commission's Bureau of Insurance ("Bureau").

This licensing requirement applies to any individual or business entity that receives a salary, fee, commission, or other compensation, either directly or indirectly, for investigating, negotiating, adjusting, or providing advice to an insured in relation to first party claims arising under insurance contracts that insure real or personal property of an insured with the purpose of effecting the settlement of a claim on behalf of the insured.

All public adjuster applicants, including both individual and business entities, are required to meet certain pre-licensing and renewal requirements. All resident individual public adjuster applicants must: (i) pass the Virginia pre-licensing Public Adjuster examination, (ii) obtain a Virginia Criminal History Record Report from the Virginia State Police, (iii) pay a $250.00 nonrefundable application processing fee, (iv) meet the delineated continuing education ("CE") requirements discussed below, and (v) certify via electronic attestation that they have, and will keep in force for as long as the license remains in effect, a $50,000 bond in favor of the Commonwealth with corporate sureties licensed by the Commission.

All licensed public adjusters are required to renew their licenses every twenty-four (24) months from the original public adjuster license issue date. In conjunction with this renewal process, Virginia resident public adjusters must complete a minimum of twenty-four (24) hours of CE courses, including three (3) hours of ethics, and pay a nonrefundable $15 CE processing fee. If a resident public adjuster fails to meet such renewal or CE requirements, the resident public adjuster’s license will not be renewed.

Article 4.1 of Chapter 18 of Title 38.2 requires that nonresident public adjusters: (i) be in good standing and currently licensed or otherwise authorized as a resident public adjuster in their home state, and (ii) pay a $250.00 nonrefundable application processing fee. While nonresident public adjusters must comply with the renewal requirements discussed above, the corresponding CE requirements do not apply to nonresident public adjuster licensees who have met the CE requirements of their home state.

Visit www.scc.virginia.gov/boi/pro/adj.aspx to review the Public Adjuster Guide and beginning December 17, 2012, to submit the electronic public adjuster application.

To register for the public adjuster pre-licensing examination, which will be available on November 1, 2012, visit Pearson VUE's website, www.asisvcs.com/indhome.asp?CPCAT=1253INS.

DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY

Total Maximum Daily Load Study for Banister River in Halifax County

The Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) will host a public meeting on a water quality study for the Halifax County streams on Thursday, November 1, 2012. The meeting will start at 7 p.m. in the Mary Bethune Complex, Bethune Public Meeting Room located at 1030 Mary Bethune Street, Halifax, VA 24558. The purpose of the meeting is to provide information and discuss the study with interested local community members and local government.

Banister River (VAC-L71R_BAN06A08, VAC-L71R_BAN04A00, and VAC-L71R_BAN05A00) was identified in Virginia's Water Quality Assessment Integrated Report as impaired for not supporting the Primary Contact Use. The impairment is based on water quality monitoring data reports of sufficient exceedances of Virginia's water quality standard for bacteria.

Winn Creek (VAC-L71R_WNN01A06) was identified in Virginia’s Water Quality Assessment Integrated Report as impaired for not supporting the Primary Contact Use. The impairment is based on water quality monitoring data reports of sufficient exceedances of Virginia's water quality standard for bacteria.

Gibson Creek (VAC-L71R_GIB01A08) was identified in Virginia's Water Quality Assessment Integrated Report as impaired for not supporting the Aquatic Life Use. The impairment is based on water quality monitoring data reports of sufficient exceedances of Virginia's water quality standard for dissolved oxygen.

Section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act and § 62.1-44.19:7 C of the Code of Virginia require DEQ to develop total maximum daily loads (TMDLs) for pollutants responsible for each impaired water contained in Virginia's 303(d) TMDL Priority List and Report and subsequent Water Quality Assessment Reports.

During the study, DEQ will develop a total maximum daily load for the impaired water. A TMDL is the total amount of a pollutant a water body can contain and still meet water quality standards. To restore water quality, pollutant levels have to be reduced to the TMDL amount.

The public comment period on materials presented at the Halifax County meeting will extend from November 1, 2012, to December 3, 2012. For additional information or to submit comments, contact Paula Nash, Virginia Department of Environmental Quality, Blue Ridge Regional Office, 7705 Timberlake Road, Lynchburg, VA 24502, telephone (434) 582-6216 or email paula.nash@deq.viginia.gov.

Bacteria TMDL Modification of Pamunkey River Basin TMDL in Hanover, King William, and New Kent Counties

The Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) seeks public comment from interested persons on proposed minor modifications of the total maximum daily loads (TMDLs) developed for impaired segments Totopotomoy Creek (F13R-02) and the Pamunkey River (F13E-02). The TMDL was approved by the Environmental Protection Agency on August 2, 2006, and is available at http://www.deq.virginia.gov/portals/0/ DEQ/Water/TMDL/apptmdls/yorkrvr/pamunk.pdf.

Description of proposed changes to the Totopotomoy Creek (F13R-02) TMDL: The Totopotomoy Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) (permit #VA0089915) is a VPDES major municipal facility with a design flow of 0.010 MGD (million gallons per day). In a recent modification, this facility was mistakenly allocated to the Totopotomoy Creek watershed, when it should have been allocated to the Pamunkey River (F13E-02) watershed. To correct this error, DEQ proposes to revise the TMDL by taking the newly allocated WLA of 1.74E+10 E. coli (cfu/yr) that was assigned to the Totopotomoy STP and moving it to Future Growth. This change will not affect the total WLA or LA values and results in a 0% change with respect to the TMDL.

Description of proposed changes to the Pamunkey River (F13E-02) TMDL:

1. The Totopotomoy Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) (permit #VA0089915) is a VPDES major municipal facility with a design flow of 10 MGD (million gallons per day). DEQ proposes to revise the TMDL by assigning a WLA of 1.74E+13 E. coli (cfu/yr) to accommodate this facility at a maximum design flow of 10 MGD and an E. coli concentration at the WQS of 126 cfu/100 ml. DEQ proposes to allocate the WLA by retaining the existing Future Growth and subtracting from Load Allocation (non-point source), which results in a change of the LA value from 7.40E+12 to 7.22E+14 E. coli (cfu/yr). This will result in a cumulative change of 2.4% with respect to the TMDL.  In some circumstances, changes >1.0% change with respect to the TMDL necessitate the need to consider a re-evaluation of the TMDL model. In this case, the Tototpotomoy STP was a discharger mistakenly left out of the TMDL during development and the TMDL for this segment is contracted for redevelopment in 2013. Therefore, DEQ does not believe the proposed WLA for the facility will cause or contribute to the nonattainment of the Pamunkey River basin and the TMDL remodeling issue will be resolved over the next year in the new TMDL.

2. DEQ proposes to correct the bacteria load allocation and revise the reduction percentage values stated in Table 5.37 of the document to be consistent with Table 3.6 (where livestock reductions of 99% are described) and to accommodate load allocation revisions.

The public comment period for these modifications will begin on October 22, 2012, and will end on November 23, 2012. Please send comments to Margaret Smigo, Department of Environmental Quality, Piedmont Regional Office, 4969-A Cox Road, Glen Allen, VA 23060, email at margaret.smigo@deq.virginia.gov, or FAX (Attn. Margaret Smigo) at (804) 527-5106. Following the comment period, a modification letter and comments received will be sent to EPA for approval final approval. For more information please contact Margaret Smigo.

Proposed FY2013 Revolving Load Fund List

The Board is presenting its draft list of targeted FY 2013 loan recipients for public review and comment. A public meeting will be held at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, November 7, 2012, in the Department of Environmental Quality's (DEQs) 11th Floor Conference Room, 629 East Main Street, Richmond, VA 23219. The public review and comment period will end immediately following the public meeting.

On May 31, 2012, DEQ solicited applications from the Commonwealth's localities and wastewater authorities as well as potential land conservation applicants and Brownfield remediation clientele. July 13, 2012, was established as the deadline for receiving applications. Based on this solicitation, DEQ received thirteen (13) wastewater improvement applications requesting $53,083,546 and one (1) stormwater management application for an additional $1,060,650.

All 13 wastewater applications were evaluated in accordance with the program's "Funding Distribution Criteria" and the Board's "Bypass Procedures." In keeping with the program objectives and funding prioritization criteria, the staff reviewed project type and impact on state waters, the locality's compliance history and fiscal stress, and the project's readiness-to-proceed. The one stormwater application was reviewed in accordance with the Board's Priority Ranking Criteria for Stormwater projects, in consultation with the Department of Conservation and Recreation. All applications are considered to be of good quality and should provide significant water quality and environmental improvement.

Based on these considerations, the Board approved the staff recommendation to authorize funding for $54,144,196 for all 14 projects (City of Lynchburg, Town of Rural Retreat, City of Salem, Scott Co. Public Service Authority, Town of Grottoes, Augusta Co. Service Authority, Town of Clifton Forge, King George Co. Service Authority, City of Norfolk, Tazewell Co. Public Service Authority, Town of Coeburn, C-N-W Waste Water Treatment Authority, Loudoun Water, and City of Richmond - stormwater).
