BAY AREA AIR QUALITY MANAGEMENT DISTRICT

REGULATION 2 - PERMITS
RULE 7 - ACID RAIN

(Adopted September 21, 1994)

The Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) hereby adopts and incorporates by reference the provisions of 40 CFR Part 72 for purposes of implementing an acid rain program that meets the requirements of Title IV of the Clean Air Act as of the date that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approves the District's Title V program (which is set forth in Regulation 2, Rule 6). The effective date of this rule shall be the date on which the District receives delegation from the EPA for the implementation of the Title V program.

For the purposes of this rule, the term "permitting authority", as that term is used in Part 72, shall mean the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, and the term "Administrator" shall mean the Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency.

For those facilities which are subject to this Rule, if the provisions or requirements of 40 CFR Part 72 are determined to conflict with Regulation 2, Rule 6, the provisions and requirements of Part 72 shall apply and take precedence.

In the event that EPA makes any subsequent amendments to Part 72, all such amendments shall be deemed to be included as part of this Rule without further action by the District.
