                              the Air Pollution Control Officer; and

                         b.   Such article, machine, equipment or

                              contrivance, is altered, if necessary, and

                              made to conform to the standards set forth in

                              Section 303 of this rule, elsewhere in these

                              rules and regulations, and in the California

                              Health and Safety Code.



                    303.3     In acting upon a permit to operate, if the

                              Air Pollution Control Officer finds that the

                              article, machine, equipment, or other

                              contrivance, the use of which may cause the

                              issuance of air contaminants or the use of

                              which may eliminate or reduce or control the

                              issuance of air contaminants, has not been

                              constructed in accordance with the authority

                              to construct, he or she shall deny the permit

                              to operate.  The Air Pollution Control

                              Officer shall not accept any further

                              application for a permit to operate the

                              article, machine, equipment, or other

                              contrivance so constructed until he or she

                              finds that the article, machine, equipment or

                              other contrivance has been reconstructed in

                              accordance with the authority to construct.



                    303.4     The Air Pollution Control Officer shall

                              require enforceable emission limitations as

                              permit conditions in authorities to construct

                              and permits to operate to assure the

                              permanence of surplus actual emissions

                              reductions applied for use as internal

                              reductions or emission reduction credits in

                              accordance with Rule 502, NEW SOURCE REVIEW;

                              Rule 504, EMISSION REDUCTION CREDITS; and

                              public notice, prior to approving an

                              application for an authority to construct

                              permit.



                    303.6     Approval to construct shall not relieve any

                              owner or operator of the responsibility to

                              comply fully with applicable requirements,

                              including applicable provisions of the

                              California State Implementation Plan,

                              Federal law.



                    303.7     No permit to operate shall be issued,

                              modified, or renewed for stationary sources

                              which are subject to Rule 507, FEDERAL

                              OPERATING PERMIT PROGRAM, unless the permit

                              contains conditions consistent with those

                              specified in that rule.



               304  PROVISION OF SAMPLING AND TESTING FACILITIES:  In

                    addition to the monitoring and testing required to

                    comply with State or Federal laws or regulations, the

                    Air Pollution Control Officer may, upon reasonable

                    written notice or before an authority to construct or

                    permit to operate is granted, require the applicant or

                    the owner or operator of any article, machine,

                    equipment, or other contrivance, the use of which may

                    cause the issuance of air contaminants, or the use of

                    which may eliminate, reduce, or control the issuance of

                    air contaminants to:



                    304.1     Provide and maintain such facilities as are

                              necessary for sampling and testing purposes

                              in order to secure information that will

                              disclose the nature, extent, quantity or

                              degree of air contaminants discharged into

                              the atmosphere from the equipment in

                              question.  In the event of such a

                              requirement, the Air Pollution Control

                              Officer shall notify the applicant in writing

                              of the required size, number and location of

                              sampling holes; the size and location of the

                              apparatus to measure emissions of air

                              contaminants when the Air Pollution Control

                              Officer has determined that such apparatus is

                              available and should be installed.

                         a.   Continuous emission monitoring systems as a

                              minimum shall be installed when required, and

                              to the event.

                         d.   Compliance with Subsection (b) and (c),

                              above, does not exempt the owner or operator

                              from applicable provisions of Rule 404, UPSET

                              CONDITIONS, BREAKDOWN AND SCHEDULED

                              MAINTENANCE, the emergency provisions of Rule

                              507, OPERATING PERMIT PROGRAM, pursuant to 40

                              CFR 70.6(g), or the separate reporting

                              requirements of other federal regulations to

                              which the stationary source or emissions unit

                              is subject.



                    304.3     If the Air Pollution Control Officer

                              determines that technological or economic

                              limitations on the application of measurement

                              methodology to a particular class of sources

                              would make the imposition of a numerical

                              emission standard infeasible, the Air

                              Pollution Control Officer may instead

                              prescribe a design, operational, or equipment

                              standard.  In such cases, the Air Pollution

                              Control Officer may require the installation

                              or modification of process monitoring devices

                              such that the design characteristics or

                              equipment will be properly maintained, or

                              that the operational conditions will be

                              properly performed, so as to continuously

                              achieve the assumed degree of control.  To

                              the extent applicable, reporting requirements

                              for process monitors shall be the same as for

                              continuous emission monitoring systems.



                    304.4     A person operating or using a stack

                              monitoring system shall, upon written notice

                              from the Air Pollution Control Officer,

                              provide a summary of the data obtained from

                              such systems.  This summary of the data shall

                              be in the form and manner prescribed by the

                              Air Pollution Control Officer.  The summary

                              of data shall be available for public

                              inspection at the office of the Air Pollution

                              Control District.  Records from the

                              monitoring equipment shall be kept by the

                              owner or operator for a period of two years,

                              during which time they shall be available to

                              the Air Pollution Control Officer in such

                              form as he or she directs.

                              304.4, above, submit data summaries and

                              retain monitoring records in accordance with

                              the applicable federal requirements of that

                              rule.

               305  TRANSFER:  An authority to construct or permit to

                    operate shall not be transferable, whether by operation

                    of law or otherwise, either from one location to

                    another, from one piece of equipment to another, or

                    from one person to another.  In the event any person

                              the source is being operated in compliance

                              with all local, State, and Federal

                              regulations which are part of the California

               411  CANCELLATION OF PERMIT TO OPERATE:  If, prior to the

                    surrender of the operating permit, the Air Pollution

                    Control Officer determines that the source or the

                    emissions unit has been removed or fallen into an

                    inoperable or un-maintained condition, the Air

                    Pollution Control Officer may notify the owner of the

                    intent to cancel the permit, providing the owner or

                    operator with 30 days to respond.  If the owner cannot

                    demonstrate to the satisfaction of the Air Pollution

                    Control Officer that the owner intended to operate

                    again, or the owner does not respond within 30 days

                    from the date a second noticing of the District's

                    intent to cancel the permit is mailed by the District

                    to the owner or operator, then the Air Pollution

                    Control Officer may cancel the permit and deem the

                    source or emissions unit shutdown as of the last known

                    date the source or emissions unit discharged emissions.



                    411.1     The owner or operator may request an

                              extension of time, in writing prior to the

                              end of the 60 day period following the

                              initial notice, from the Air Pollution

                              Control Officer.

                    411.3     The owner or operator may claim emissions

                              reductions resulting from the shutdown in

                              accordance with the provisions of Rule 504,

                              EMISSION REDUCTION CREDITS, prior to the end

                              of the 60 day period following the initial

                              notice, or prior to the expiration of an

                              extension.



                    411.4     The Air Pollution Control Officer shall

                              advise, in writing, the owner or operator of

                              the stationary source or emissions unit for

                              which a permit is cancelled of the

                              cancellation decision.



                    411.5     The owner or operator may appeal the decision

                              to cancel the permit pursuant to Section 413

                              of this rule.



               412  TEMPORARY PERMIT:  The Air Pollution Control Officer

                    may issue a temporary permit to operate.  The temporary

                    permit to operate shall specify a reasonable period of
