NORTHERN SONOMA COUNTY AIR POLLUTION CONTROL DISTRICT

RULE 350 - MAJOR EMISSION ASSESSMENT

(a) Any District Board in the North Coast Air Basin may, after notice and a public hearing, adopt a schedule of fees based on an assessment of emissions. For the purposes of this rule, such emission assessment shall be described as an assessment of those emissions which total an annual combined stationary source release of 25 tons or more of any air contaminant. This schedule shall apply and the indicated charges shall be assessed by the District prior to November 1 of any fiscal year in which the district revenues do not cover the cost of operation of the program requirements as outlined in Section 42311 of the Health and Safety Code. This emission source assessment shall be based upon combined total stationary source emissions for the previous calendar year. In determining the emission assessment, the district shall use a dollar based program deficiency factor which in no case shall exceed the amounts indicated in the unit fee column of part (b) of this rule.

(b) The total emission assessment upon each stationary source shall be calculated as follows:
