MARTINEZ -- The Contra Costa County Zoning Administrator will hold a compliance meeting Monday on the land use permit of the Phillips 66 refinery in Rodeo.

At issue is whether a fence line pollution monitoring system, deemed deficient in October, has been fixed. The system is supposed to function 95 percent of the time, according to an agreement between the refinery and an environmental working group that is a condition of a Clean Fuels Expansion Project.

County staff reports that the refinery has made significant progress toward meeting its compliance goals, but the environmental working group disagrees. According to the staff report, a contractor found the monitoring system exceeded the 95 percent standard during four months of a 10-month period, and failed to meet the standard during six of those months.

The meeting begins at 1:30 p.m., 30 Muir Road, Martinez.
