MOJAVE DESERT AIR QUALITY MANAGEMENT DISTRICT

RULE 710 - INTERDISTRICT COORDINATION
(Amended: September 26, 1977)

(a) The APCO shall establish and operate a capability for the purpose of exchanging air pollution episode information with other air pollution control districts within the Southeast Desert Air Basin. In using that facility, it shall be the APCO's objective to exchange air contaminant and meteorological information with other air pollution control districts so as to delineate source and receptor areas within the Southeast Desert Air Basin and to provide coordination of air-quality forecasts.

(b) Upon request of an air pollution control officer of an air pollution control zone for action to abate a second or third-stage episode occurring within that zone, the APCO shall consult with the Air Pollution Control Board to identify any significant source area within the geographical limits of the District and the episode stage, if any, to be declared in such source area. After such consultation and determination, and the need for action is confirmed, the APCO shall direct the implementation of the action required in Rules 707, 708 or 709 for any significant source area identified within the district.

(c) Within three hours of the receipt of the request for abatement actions specified in Rule 710(b), or as soon thereafter as reasonably possible, the APCO shall report to the requesting air pollution control district the actions being taken to reduce air contaminant emissions from the source areas within his jurisdiction.
