HB 190 FISCAL NOTE

AN ACT relative to the installation of continuous emission monitoring systems on stationary air pollution sources and devices.

FISCAL IMPACT:

The Department of Environmental Services indicates state expenditures will increase by $11,738,133 in FY 2006, $3,776,166 in FY 2007, $3,791,105 in FY 2008, $3,806,755 in FY 2009. County expenditures will increase by $3,275,607 in FY 2006 and by $975,713 in FY 2007 and each year thereafter. Local expenditures will increase by $11,137,061 in FY 2006, $3,317,423 in FY 2007 and each year thereafter. There will be no fiscal impact on state, county and local revenue.

METHODOLOGY:

The Department has based its first year costs for continuous emission monitoring systems (CEMS) on “CEMS Cost Model Version 3.0 – 2/10/98” (computer program found at where the cost of an EPA-acceptable CEMS is determined). The average CEMS cost used is $185,850 per system, which was the average of four systems cost ranging from $148,400 to $225,400. This cost includes sampling system (including heated umbilical from stack, conditioning system, extraction pump, etc.), computer data acquisition system, CEMS shelter (small trailer), individual component gas analyzers, labor for installing system, etc. All of this is typical of a CEMS installation. The $185,850 per system cost is an average value of current established CEMS that could be installed (e.g. CO/NOX/O2/opacity). Cost for a mercury or metals CEMS have not been included in the estimate and would add significantly to the cost of a CEMS. Annual maintenance, quality assurance/quality control costs, Environmental Protection Agency testing required is estimated from the cost program referenced above to be approximately 35% of the initial cost. The Department did not take into consideration any inflation factors to update the 1998 dollars to 2006 dollars. For state costs, there is an additional Department cost factored in which takes into account staffing necessary to review, verify data, and oversee continuous monitoring activities throughout the state. It is assumed that it will take six (6) additional people to do this. The six people would have oversight on approximately 30 CEMS at 9-10 facilities. The average salary for the six employees is based on APC Engineer III, labor grade 24. Step increases are included in the salaries. Also an overhead factor of 1.52 (based on a .44 additional factor for benefits and a .08 additional factor for office facilities) is used.
