Broomfield Participates in the Air Quality Control Commission's Regulation 3 & 7 Rulemaking

The Colorado Air Quality Control Commission (AQCC) rulemaking on air emissions is scheduled for the AQCC December 17-19, 2019, hearing. Broomfield is participating as part of the Local Government Coalition with Boulder County, Lafayette, and the City and County of Denver and more than 20 other local governments. The LGC supports revisions to the AQCC oil and gas rules that will minimize emissions of smog-forming volatile organic compounds and climate-altering methane from production and gathering and boosting facilities as well as minimize methane emissions from transmission facilities. Broomfield's air quality program was cited as support for the rule changes in the LGC pre-hearing statement linked here, and the exhibits are linked here.
