YOLO-SOLANO AIR QUALITY MANAGEMENT DISTRICT

RULE 2.19 - PARTICULATE MATTER PROCESS EMISSION RATE

  1. No person shall discharge in any one hour from any process unit except for motor vehicles, implements of husbandry, and certain agricultural facilities as given in b. and c. particulate matter of a weight in excess of the amount shown for the corresponding process weight per hour in the following table. Use the process weight per hour as defined in Rule l.2.y. to find the corresponding allowable process emission rate.
  2. Where the requirements of the Federal Primary Air Quality Standards for Particulate Matter are met in the vicinity of any new facility and associated operations which are necessary to sustain agricultural operations, the process weight emission requirements for particulate matter shall apply only to those emissions of aerodynamic size diameter of 10 microns or less provided that any emissions do not constitute a nuisance and provided that:
    1. No more than 10 family residences are within a l/4 mile radius of the facility;
    2. No zoned boundaries for other than agricultural and heavy industry are within one (l) mile of the facility;
    3. No city limit is within two (2) miles of the facility.
  3. Where the requirements of the Federal Primary Air Quality Standards for Particulate Matter are met in the vicinity of any existing facility and associated operations which are necessary to sustain agricultural operations, the process weight emission requirements shall apply only to those emissions of aerodynamic size diameter of 10 microns or less provided that any emissions do not constitute a nuisance.
