          100  GENERAL


               101  PURPOSE:  To establish the requirements for the

                    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)].


               102  APPLICABILITY:  The requirements of this rule are

                    applicable to every stationary source permitted by the

                    District which has actual emissions or potential in

                    excess of ten (10) tons or more per year of volatile

                    organic compounds or oxides of nitrogen.


               110  EXEMPTION, WAIVER:  The Air Pollution Control Officer

                    may waive the requirement to provide an emission

                    statement for any class or category of 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, but more than

                    ten (10) tons per year of volatile organic compounds or

                    oxides of nitrogen, pursuant to the requirements of

                    Section 401.


          200  DEFINITIONS:  Unless otherwise defined below, the terms used

               in this rule are defined in Rule 502, NEW SOURCE REVIEW.



               201  ACTUAL EMISSIONS - Measured or estimated emissions

                    which most accurately represent the emissions from an

                    emissions unit.  Fugitive emissions associated with the

                    emissions unit shall be included in the actual

                    emissions of the emissions unit.

                    only, volatile organic compounds (VOC) and oxides of

                    nitrogen (NOx) are the affected pollutants.



               203  RESPONSIBLE OFFICIAL -  An individual, who is

                    responsible for the completion and certification of the

                              for the corporation, or a duly authorized

                              representative of such person if the

                    requirements of Subsections 302.1 or 302.2, as follows:



                    302.1     Emission Inventory Data Report:  Unless

                              otherwise directed by the Air Pollution

                              Control Officer, the owner or operator of a

                              source regulated by this rule shall annually

                              conduct an emissions inventory of the actual

                              emissions discharged to the atmosphere in the

                              prior calendar year.  The emission data

                              report shall be submitted to the District no

                              later than March 1.

                              is regulated by this rule submits an annual

                              emission data report, 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 the date

                              the emission statement was sent to the owner

                              or operator by the District, and the

                              responsible official shall certify that the

                              emissions information is accurate, to the

                              best knowledge of the individual certifying

                              the statement.

                              emissions information submitted pursuant to

                              Section 302.1(b), the Air Pollution Control

                              Officer shall accept or reject the

                              information.  If accepted, the emission

                              statement shall be submitted to the

                              California Air Resources Board.  If the

                              emission statement is rejected, it shall be

                              returned to the source owner or operator with

                              the reason(s) for its rejection.  The source

                              owner or operator shall correct the emission

                              statement and resubmit it to the Air

                              Pollution Control Officer within 30 days of

                              the date the notice of rejection of the

                              emission statement was made (postmarked

                              date).

                    302.2     Emission Statement:  If so directed by the
