                   Great Basin Unified Air Pollution Control District

                                Request For Proposals

                Mono Basin PM-10 State Implementation Plan Development

          A. Introduction

               Great Basin is seeking  proposals from qualified consultants

               to assist with the development  of an air quality management

               plan to control the dust emissions  from  the  exposed playa

               around  Mono Lake in Mono County, California.  The  plan  is

               intended  to  be used as the State Implementation Plan (SIP)

               for the Mono Basin  PM-10  planning  area.  Assistance shall

               include, but not be limited to: summarizing  air quality and

               soil  erosion  data,  researching  and summarizing  the  air

               quality  related  information  for the  SIP  and  ultimately

               writing  the  SIP  under the direction  of  the  Deputy  Air

               Pollution  Control Officer.   Presented  below  is  a  brief

               background,  the objectives of the proposed project, a scope

               of work and a schedule.

          B. Background

               Recent ambient  air monitoring for PM-10 (particulate matter

               less than 10 microns nominal aerodynamic diameter) has shown

               that violations of  the  Federal  PM-10 National Ambient Air

               Quality Standard (Standard) occur in  the  area  around Mono

               Lake.   These violations are caused by wind blown dust  that

               is generated  from the exposed lakebed around Mono Lake.  In

               December 1992,  the  U.S.  Environmental  Protection  Agency

               (EPA)  gave  notice  to  the Governor of California that the

               U.S. EPA intended to designate  the  Mono  Basin  as  a non-

               attainment  area  for the federal PM-10 Standard.  With this

               designation the U.S.  EPA will require the State to submit a

               SIP for the Mono Basin  that  will  assess the source of the

               violations and will propose a solution  that  will bring the

               area  into  attainment  with the PM-10 standard as  soon  as


          C. Project Objectives

               1.   Summarize meteorological and ambient air quality data.

               2.   Assess the source areas for PM-10 dust production.

               3.   Determine  the effects  of  control  methods  on  PM-10

                    production and the associated impact on air quality.

               4.   Write a SIP suitable for adoption.

          D. Scope of Work

               The consultant shall  work under the direction of the Deputy

               Air  Pollution  Control Officer  (DAPCO).   All  assignments

               shall be approved  by  the  DAPCO  prior  to implementation.

               Information and reports from tasks 1 through  3 are intended

               to be used in the draft SIP in task 4.

               Task 1:   Summarize meteorological and ambient  air  quality

                         data for inclusion in the SIP.

               The  objective  of  this  task  is to determine the relative

               frequency of high wind events that  could cause a dust storm

               at  Mono Lake and a violation of the PM-10  standard.   Data

               will  be  provided  by  Great  Basin  in  a  computer format

               suitable for a computer spreadsheet or data base.

               Task 2:   Assess PM-10 source areas.

               The  objective  of  this  task  is  summarize  the available

               information  on  the  source  areas  for  PM-10  production,

               including  locations, size, frequency of blowable emissions,

               and erosion  rates.   We  estimate  there  will  be  5  data

               collection  periods  (dust  storms)  to summarize.  Maps and

               reports will be provided by Great Basin.

               Task 3:   Determine the effects of control techniques on PM-

                         10  dust  production  and the impact  on  the  air


               This  task  will  include  summarizing  and,  if  necessary,

               refining the results from the  air  quality modeling that is

               being performed to assess the impact  of the wind blown dust

           air quality management plan to control fugitive dust emissions

           from Owens Dry Lake.

           Proposals  should  clearly  specify how the proposed work will

           aid in the development of the  solution  to  the fugitive dust

           problem. Proposals should contain enough detail  to  allow the

           District  to  determine  the  type  and  amount  of work to be

           performed, the products to be furnished and the estimated cost

           to accomplish the work. Specifically proposals should include:

           a cover letter summarizing the proposal, a work plan,  project

           organization  and staffing, work products, related experience,

           project schedule and project cost.

           The District Board  will approve the final list of projects to

           be funded based on: a  demonstrated understanding of the Owens

           Lake fugitive dust problem, applicability of the proposed work

           to the development of a solution to the problem, applicability

           of  the proposed work to  the  District's  current  mitigation

           efforts,   scientific  soundness  of  the  proposed  work  and

           available funding.

           All proponents  approved  for  funding  will  be  required  to

           provide  insurance coverage and enter into a contract with the

           District to  perform  the  work.  On request, the District can

           provide interested proponents with  a  copy  of the District's

           standard contract.
