Case No. 2022-07-N (90-Day Variance) 
Sierra Resources, Inc.
PO Box 2788
Mammoth Lakes, CA 93546

HearingTo consider a Petition for a Regular Variance from District Rules 361.F.2 and 206, Permit to Operate 7744-R14, Conditions 3.d.i and 6.a, submitted on May 10, 2022, for continued operation of the boiler beyond the source test window. The required source test is scheduled to be completed as soon as possible during the variance period.

The required biennial source testing on the boiler was unable to be completed within the source test window, due to a faulty fuel regulator.  Until it is repaired, the boiler can only operate intermittently on low fire.  Necessary replacement parts were ordered the week of March 7, but supply chain issues have delayed the delivery and repair.  The Petitioner states there are no emissions exceedances with continued operation of the boiler.

The Petitioner operates the equipment described in the Petition at the Soladino Lease, located in Casmalia, CA.

Said Petition is on file with the Clerk of the APCD Hearing Board and available for public inspection.  Interested persons may submit written evidence, arguments concerning this matter, or make arrangements to view said Petition before the hearing by contacting the Hearing Board Clerk at:  [email protected], or 260 North San Antonio Rd., Suite A, Santa Barbara, California 93110.
