If this looks familiar, it’s because it is.
From TCEQ testing at the Ruggiero’s.
From the conclusion of the report:
Continuous operations of three diesel engines greater than 400 horsepower at this site resulted in significant emissions of nitrogen oxides. An estimate of maximum nitrogen oxide concentration over one hour on the complaintant’s property was predicted using SCREEN3, an air dispersion model, to be 380 parts per billion. The current National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) for nitrogen dioxide is 53 parts per billion averaged over one year. The United States Environmental Protection Agency has proposed a standard of 80 to 100 parts per billion nitrogen dioxide averaged over one hour. Aruba should consider using nitrogen oxide controls on its diesel engines in situations where potential off-site impacts are high.
The TCEQ inspector was meticulous in his reporting which reminds us that there are people in the trenches who go to work each day, care and try to do a good job.
I think I’ll send this to my contact at the EPA.
