SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY UNIFIED AIR POLLUTION CONTROL DISTRICT
RULE 1160 - EMISSION STATEMENTS
(Adopted November 18, 1992)
The purpose of this rule is to provide the District with an accurate accounting of emissions from significant sources with which the District and ARB can compile an accurate inventory.
The provisions of this rule apply to all owners and operators of any stationary source category which emits or may emit nitrogen oxides or reactive organic compounds.
3.1 Emission Data Survey Form: a form provided by the APCO that specifies information necessary to calculate estimated actual emissions.
3.2 Responsible Official: the person officially responsible for data presented in the emissions statement; the responsible official is liable to legal review or in case of fault, to penalties.
3.3 Stationary Source: any building, structure, facility, or installation which emits or may emit any air pollutant.
The APCO may waive the requirements of this section for any class or category of stationary sources which emit less than 25 tons per year of nitrogen oxides or reactive organic gases if the District provides the Air Resources Board with an emission inventory of sources emitting greater than 10 tons per year of nitrogen oxides or reactive organic gases based on the use of emission factors acceptable to the Air Resources Board.
The owner or operator of any stationary source operation that emits or may emit nitrogen oxides or reactive organic compounds shall provide the APCO with a written statement in such form that the APCO prescribes, showing actual emissions of nitrogen oxides and reactive organic compounds from that source. At a minimum the Emission Statement shall contain all of the information contained in the Air Resources Board's Emission Inventory Turn Around Document as described in "Instructions for the Emission Data System Review and Update Report."
The owner or operator of any stationary source subject to this section may comply with the provisions of this section by satisfying either of the following requirements:
5.1 The owner or operator shall return an Emission Statement to the APCO. The Emission Statement shall contain all information requested in the Emission Data Survey Form and emission estimates. This Emission Statement shall be certified by the responsible official of the source and shall state that the information contained in the Emission Statement is accurate to the best knowledge of the individual certifying the statement.
5.2 The owner or operator shall complete and return an Emission Data Survey Form to the APCO. The District shall estimate actual emissions based on the data contained in the Emission Data Survey Form. The emissions estimates calculated by the District shall be provided to the owner or operator of the source and shall be certified by the responsible official and returned to the District. This Emission Statement shall state that the information contained in the Emission Statement is accurate to the best knowledge of the individual certifying the statement.
6.0 Compliance Schedule
The first Emission Statement shall cover calendar year 1992 emissions and shall be submitted to the District by June 1, 1993. Emission Statements shall be submitted annually thereafter.
