101 PURPOSE: To establish the requirement for submittal of emission statements from specified stationary sources pursuant to the requirements of the 1990 amendments to the federal Clean Air Act [Section 182(a)(3)(B)].
110 EXEMPTION: Stationary sources which emit (based on actual emissions for the twelve months prior to the reporting period requested) less than twenty-five (25) tons per year of both volatile organic compounds and oxides of nitrogen, each taken separately, are exempt from the requirements of this rule.
201 ACTUAL EMISSIONS: Measured or estimated emissions which most accurately represent the emissions from an emissions unit.
202 AFFECTED POLLUTANTS: Volatile organic compounds (VOC), and oxides of nitrogen (NOx).
203 EMISSIONS UNIT: An identifiable operation or piece of process equipment such as an article, machine, or other contrivance which controls, emits, may emit, or results in the emissions of any affected pollutant directly or as fugitive emissions.
204 RESPONSIBLE OFFICIAL: An officer of the company or business operating an emissions unit, who is responsible for the completion and certification of the emission statement, and who accepts legal responsibility for the emission statement's accuracy.
205 VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUND (VOC): For the purposes of this rule, "volatile organic compound" has the same meaning as in Rule 101—GENERAL PROVISIONS AND DEFINITIONS.
301 EMISSION STATEMENT:
301.1 The owner or operator of any stationary source which emits twenty-five (25) tons or more per year of either oxides of nitrogen or volatile organic compounds shall, annually, provide the District with a written emission statement showing actual emissions of volatile organic compounds and oxides of nitrogen from that source.
301.2 The emission statement shall be in a form provided by the Air Pollution Control Officer, and shall contain the following information:
a. Information contained in the California Air Resources Board's Emission Inventory Turn Around Document as described in Instructions for the Emission Data System Review and Update Report (August, 1991); and
b. Actual emissions of volatile organic compounds and oxides of nitrogen, in tons per year, for the calendar year prior to the preparation of the emission statement; and
c. Information regarding any seasonal or diurnal peaks in the emission of affected pollutants; and
d. Certification by a responsible official of the company that the information contained in the emission statement is accurate to the best knowledge of the individual certifying the emission statement.
301.3 After April 20, 1993, the first emission statement shall cover actual emissions of volatile organic compounds and oxides of nitrogen for calendar year 1992, and shall be submitted to the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District within 30 days of written notification by the District to submit an emission statement, but not later than November 15, 1993. Thereafter, Annual Emission Inventory Survey Forms, which will be used to develop the second and subsequent emissions statement, shall be submitted to the District no later than March 15.
301.4 The owner or operator of any source subject to this section may comply with the provisions of this section by satisfying either of the following requirements:
a. Once the owner or operator of a source that is regulated by this rule submits an Annual Emission Inventory Survey Form (by March 15), the District will prepare an emission statement for certification by the responsible official. The responsible official must certify the emission statement and return it to the District within 30 days after the date it was mailed by the District (postmarked date).
b. If the owner or operator believes that the information in the emission statement provided by the District is not correct, the owner or operator may revise the emissions information, using a form and methodology approved by the Air Pollution Control Officer. The revised emission information shall be returned to the Air Pollution Control Officer within 30 days of receipt of the emissions statement provided by the District, and the responsible official shall certify that the revised emission information is accurate, to the best knowledge of the individual certifying the statement.
401 DISTRICT REQUIREMENTS:
401.1 The Air Pollution Control Officer shall prepare an emission statement for each source within the District emitting 25 tons or more per year of either volatile organic compounds or oxides of nitrogen, based on the information contained in the Annual Emission Inventory Survey Form. If not exempted pursuant to Section 110, the Air Pollution Control Officer shall also prepare an emission statement for sources emitting less than twenty-five (25) tons per year of either volatile organic compounds or oxides of nitrogen. The emission statement shall be submitted to the owner or operator of the source on an annual basis, for certification by a company or agency responsible official.
401.2 If exempted by Section 110, the Air Pollution Control Officer will provide the California Air Resources Board with an emission inventory for sources emitting more than ten (10) tons per year of either volatile organic compounds or oxides of nitrogen.
402 REVISED EMISSION INFORMATION: Within 30 days of receipt of revised emissions information submitted pursuant to Section 301.4(b), the Air Pollution Control Officer shall accept or reject the information. If accepted, the revised emissions information shall be submitted to the California Air Resources Board. If the revised emissions information is rejected, it shall be returned to the source owner or operator with the reason(s) for its rejection. Within 30 days of receipt of the rejected information and the reason(s) for its rejection, the source owner or operator shall correct the information and resubmit it to the Air Pollution Control Officer.
500 MONITORING AND RECORDS:
A person subject to this rule shall maintain records used in the preparation of the Annual Emission Inventory Survey Forms for two years and make these records available for review by the Air Pollution Control Officer upon request.
