41-2132. Stage I and stage II vapor recovery systems

A. A person shall not offer for sale, sell, install or use a new gasoline vapor recovery system, or any new or rebuilt component parts of the system, unless the system or component part has been certified by the California air resources board as of March 31, 2001 or after that date, or has been approved by a third party accredited to test equipment and recognized by industry and the department, and has not been rejected by the department. The department shall maintain and keep current a list of stage I and stage II vapor recovery systems and component parts that are approved by the department. Only those systems that are approved shall be used in this state. All certified vapor recovery components must be clearly identified by a permanent identification affixed by the certified manufacturer or rebuilder.

B. For gasoline dispensing sites with a throughput of over ten thousand gallons per month in area A or area B as defined in section 49-541, and beginning on January 1, 2001 for gasoline dispensing sites with a throughput of over ten thousand gallons per month in area A but outside of the Phoenix area Maricopa county ozone nonattainment area as prescribed in 40 Code of Federal Regulations section 81.303, a person shall not transfer or allow the transfer of gasoline into storage tanks at gasoline dispensing sites unless the storage tank is equipped with either of the following:

1. A stage I vapor collection system consisting of a vapor-tight return line from the storage tank or its vent to the gasoline transport vehicle.

2. A properly installed on-site vapor control system connected to a vapor collection system.

C. In an ozone nonattainment area designated as moderate, serious, severe or extreme by the United States environmental protection agency under section 107(d) of the clean air act, area A or other geographical area as provided in subsection I of this section, an owner or operator of a gasoline dispensing site shall not transfer or allow the transfer of gasoline into a motor vehicle fuel tank at a gasoline dispensing site unless the gasoline dispensing site is equipped with a stage II vapor collection system. This subsection does not apply to gasoline dispensing sites with a throughput of less than ten thousand gallons per month, or to a gasoline dispensing site with a throughput of less than fifty thousand gallons per month in the case of an independent small business marketer of gasoline as defined in section 324 of the clean air act or to a gasoline dispensing site that is located on a manufacturer's proving ground. Beginning on January 1, 2001, this subsection applies to gasoline dispensing sites that are located within area A but outside the Phoenix area Maricopa county ozone nonattainment area as defined in 40 Code of Federal Regulations section 81.303.

D. An owner or operator of a gasoline storage tank, gasoline transport vehicle or gasoline dispensing site subject to stage I or stage II vapor collection requirements shall comply with the following:

1. Install all necessary stage I and stage II vapor collection and control systems and make any modifications necessary to comply with the requirements.

2. Provide adequate training and written instructions to the operator of the affected gasoline dispensing site and the gasoline transport vehicle.

3. Replace, repair or modify any worn or ineffective component or design element to ensure the vapor-tight integrity and efficiency of the stage I and stage II vapor collection systems.

4. Connect and ensure proper operation of the stage I and stage II vapor collection systems whenever gasoline is being loaded, unloaded or dispensed.

5. Have the stage II vapor recovery system tested annually by a registered service representative licensed by the department.

E. Before the initial installation or modification of any stage I or stage II recovery system, the owner or operator of a gasoline storage tank, gasoline transport vehicle or gasoline dispensing site shall obtain a plan review and approval from the department. Application for the plan review and approval shall be on forms prescribed and provided by the department.

F. The operator of each gasoline dispensing site using a stage II vapor recovery system shall conspicuously post operating instructions for the system in the gasoline or oxygenated fuel dispensing area. The instructions shall clearly describe how to fuel vehicles correctly with the vapor recovery nozzles used at the station and shall include a warning that topping off may result in spillage or recirculation of gasoline or oxygenated fuel and is prohibited.

G. The department of weights and measures in consultation with the department of environmental quality and the state fire marshal shall establish by rule standards for the installation and operation of stage I and stage II vapor recovery systems. The department of weights and measures shall establish by rule plan review and approval fees. In establishing those rules and standards, the director shall consider requirements in other states to assure that only state of the art technology is used.

H. Approval of a stage I or stage II vapor collection system by the department does not relieve the owner or operator of the responsibility to comply with other applicable statutes, codes and rules pertaining to fire prevention, environmental quality and safety matters.

I. Any county, city or town outside an ozone nonattainment area designated as moderate, serious or severe by the environmental protection agency under section 107(d) of the clean air act or outside of area A as defined in section 49-541 may require gasoline dispensing sites with a throughput greater than ten thousand gallons per month or fifty thousand gallons per month in the case of an independent small business marketer of gasoline as defined in section 324 of the clean air act to install, operate and maintain stage II vapor collection systems in accordance with this section. For a county, city or town considering the adoption of a resolution to require stage II vapor collection systems within its jurisdiction and on request, the department of environmental quality shall provide technical assistance in evaluating the air quality in that county, city or town and shall provide final review and approval of an adopted resolution.

J. A county board of supervisors or governing body of a city or town shall submit a resolution approved by the department of environmental quality to the director of the department of weights and measures requesting the imposition of the requirements for stage II vapor collection systems within its jurisdiction.

K. The director shall adopt, by rule, compliance schedules for gasoline dispensing sites located within the jurisdiction requesting stage II vapor collection system requirements no later than twelve months after receipt of the resolution from the county board of supervisors or governing board of a city or town. All gasoline dispensing sites other than those that are exempt pursuant to subsection C of this section shall be required to comply with stage II vapor collection system rules within twenty-four months after the rules have been filed with the secretary of state.

L. A county board of supervisors or governing body of a city or town that adopts the requirements for stage II vapor collection systems may repeal those requirements by adopting a resolution to remove the imposition of those requirements within its jurisdiction unless the county, city or town is in an ozone nonattainment area that has since been designated as moderate, serious or severe by the United States environmental protection agency under section 107(d) of the clean air act. On receipt of the resolution, the director of the department of weights and measures shall consult with the director of the department of environmental quality to verify that a county, city or town is outside of an ozone nonattainment area designated as moderate, serious or severe by the United States environmental protection agency under section 107(d) of the clean air act. After consultation with the department of environmental quality, the director of the department of weights and measures shall revise the rules to repeal the requirements for stage II vapor collection systems within that jurisdiction as soon as practicable.
