SAN DIEGO COUNTY AIR POLLUTION CONTROL DISTRICT

RULE 53.1 - SCAVENGER PLANTS
(Rev. Effective 01/22/97)

Where a separate source of air pollution is a scavenger or recovery plant, recovering pollutants which would otherwise be emitted to the atmosphere, the Air Pollution Control Officer may grant a temporary Permit to Operate where the total emission of pollutants is substantially less with the plant in operation than when closed, even though the concentration exceeds that permitted by Rule 53(a). The Air Pollution Control Officer shall report immediately in writing to the Air Pollution Control Board the granting of any such permit, together with the facts and reasons therefor.
