Thursday, October 29 2:00-3:15pmTrack 1 New Health Risk Assessment Procedures: What they mean to you and your organization The California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) has developed new human health risk assessment guidelines that have been incorporated into local regulations. These changes to air toxic risk factors can result in up to a threefold increase in calculated toxic risk impacts. Gain insight into how these changes will affect operation of stationary air toxic emission sources for both new and existing sources. Our speakers will provide insight to the dynamics of environmental protection, navigating the new regulatory challenges, and maintaining operational flexibility in this changing landscape. Moderator: Andrea White (CH2M) Panelists: Archi de la Cruz (SDAPCD), Cara Bandera (BAE Systems), Eric Carlson (AECOM)Track 2 Energy Reliability and Flexibility—What are our guarantees? Renewable energy integration incorporates renewable energy, distributed generation, energy storage, and demand response into the electric distribution and transmission system. How is this affecting the system design, planning, and operation of the electric grid? This requires even more dependency on natural gas fired generation to provide reliable electric service. SDGE’s priority is to implement safety requirements on the gas pipelines. With only two major gas pipelines serving the entire San Diego Gas and Electric service territory – and one of these pipelines delivering 90% of the natural gas needs of the region, what are the risks and how can this be mitigated? Moderator: Dinah Willier (SDG&E) Panelists: Robb Anderson (SDG&E), Estela de Llanos (SDG&E), Randy Palombi (Stem), Phil Pettingil (Cal/ISO)Track 3 Contaminants of Emerging Concern—Challenges, Perspectives, and Risk Considerations Chemicals are being discovered in environmental media that previously had not been detected or are being detected at levels that may be significantly different than expected. These are often referred to as “contaminants of emerging concern” because the risk to human health and the environment associated with their presence, frequency of occurrence, or source may not be known. These knowledge-gaps present significant challenges for entities responsible for protecting human health and the environment and managing water quality and supply. This session will discuss the current challenges, perspectives, and approaches to addressing concerns associated with emerging contaminants. Moderator: Bridgette DeShields (Integral Consulting, Inc.) Panelists: Nathan Dodder (SCCWRP), Jeff Armstrong (OC Sanitation District), Garrett Jansma (Latham & Watkins), Kirk Wilkinson (Latham & Watkins)

Thursday, October 29 3:30-4:45pmTrack 1 Evolving Sustainability: Why & How to Build Business Resiliency The term “sustainability” is evolving from a buzzword for green initiatives back to its original meaning of “the ability to survive and grow over time”. As we endeavor to expand the reach of our organization’s we encounter risks tied to the globalization of markets, increasing regulations, and resource vulnerabilities. Creating business value, therefore, must include preserving business continuity, assessing vulnerabilities, and managing triple bottom line risks. In nature and business, the communities that are resilient and adaptable survive and thrive as conditions around them change. How sustainable resilient are you? Moderator: David Lange (Haley & Aldrich) Panelists: Tamsin Woolley-Barker (Biomimicry San Diego), Brendan Reed (San Diego County Regional Airport Authority), Nik Steinberg (427)Track 2 Energy Reliability Part 2 This session is focused on microgrid implementations in multiple areas of the U.S. and an energy monitoring & storage technology. Additional emphasis will highlight a DOE Sponsored Technical Assistance Programs for Combined Heat & Power and Self Generation Incentive Programs managed by The Center for Sustainable Energy personnel.

Friday, October 30 12:30-3:00pmTrack 1—Air Permitting 101 Workshop The Permitting 101 Workshop/Training will present characteristics of air quality permitting processes and notable recent or proposed changes to permitting rules in San Diego, the State of California, and the United States. The discussion will begin with a general description of the air permitting process including timeline, new source review (NSR) and other considerations. Recent changes in health risk assessment methodology published by the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) went into effect July 1, 2015 in most air districts and reportedly increase cancer risk estimates by 1.8 to 3.6 times. Risk management decisions made by the Air Resources Board and individual air districts in response to the “on paper” increase in cancer risk will be presented along with potential issues that are expected and/or have been identified by industry and APCD staff to date. Best Available Control Technology (BACT) and/or Toxic- BACT are required for many new and modified sources. Use of BACT clearinghouses, the “top-down” BACT analysis methodology, and differences between BACT and T-BACT determination processes will be discussed. Lastly, the federal permitting program required by Title V of the Clean Air Act affects major sources of air pollutants will be discussed. The Title V permit format and content will be compared and contrasted with typical local air permit format and content.
