Please join AWMA for a lunch meeting, where they will hear from Stefanie Rucker, who is the Oil and Gas Engineering Supervisor for the Colorado Air Pollution Control Division, and James Van Horne, a Senior Engineer with SLR’s air practice and registered Professional Engineer in the State of Colorado.

The Denver Front Range Ozone Non-Attainment Area is expected to be re-classified as “Serious” by early next year.  The change in classification will result in more sources becoming subject to the more stringent Title V and non-attainment new source review requirements. Stefanie Rucker from the Colorado Air Pollution Control Division will present on what sources will be affected by the rule, what the Division has done to prepare for re-classification, and summarize non-attainment new source review requirements.  James Van Horne from SLR will discuss what affected sources should do to prepare and strategies for avoiding non-attainment new source review.

Stefanie Rucker is the Oil and Gas Engineering Supervisor for the Colorado Air Pollution Control Division. She has bachelor and master of science degrees from Kansas State University in environmental engineering. She has spent her career handling oil and gas related air quality and regulatory issues, overseeing the development of policy and the implementation of the regulatory revisions. She manages oil and gas permitting statewide, including construction permits, Prevention of Significant Deterioration, and Nonattainment New Source Review.

James Van Horne is a Senior Engineer with SLR’s air practice and registered Professional Engineer in the State of Colorado.  He received his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Colorado State University. He supports industrial clients in complex air quality permitting and compliance matters throughout the US including Title V permitting and Non-Attainment New Source Review and Prevention of Significant Deterioration avoidance. His recent focus has been issues affecting oil and gas in Colorado both inside and outside the Ozone Non-Attainment Area.
