RULE 2:1 - GENERAL REQUIREMENTS
(Adopted 8/10/1971)

A. No person shall cause or permit the construction or modification of any new source without first obtaining an authority to construct or modify from the Air Pollution Control Officer as to the location and design of such new source to comply with applicable rules and regulations and ambient air quality standards.
     
B. The Air Pollution Control Officer shall not approve such construction or modification unless the applicant demonstrates to the satisfaction of the Air Pollution Control Officer that the new source can be expected to comply with all applicable state, federal and local regulations.
     
  1. The Air Pollution Control Officer will provide permit applicants with a list of information and criteria he deems necessary for proper evaluation of the application. Within 30 days after receiving an application, the Air Pollution Officer will advise the applicant whether the application is complete. If deemed incomplete, the applicant will be apprised of the additional information necessary. A new 30 day review period will be established on receipt of the revised application. If no action is taken within either of these 30 day periods, the applicant may deem the application complete.
     
  2. After determining that an application is complete, the Air Pollution Control Officer may ask the applicant to clarify, supplement, or expand upon any information required in the list of criteria. However, the Air Pollution Control Officer may not require information not cited in the list of criteria.
     
  3. The Air Pollution Control Officer must act on the application within 180 days after the applicant has been notified that the application is complete, or within 180 days after the lead agency has approved the project, whichever is later. If the Air Pollution Officer does not take action to approve or disapprove the application during that period of time, the permit may be deemed granted by operation of law.
