SOUTH COAST AIR QUALITY MANAGEMENT DISTRICT
RULE 1301 - GENERAL
(Adopted Oct. 5, 1979)(Amended March 7, 1980) (Amended Sept. 10, 1982)(Amended July 12, 1985) (Amended Sept. 5, 1986) (Amended June 28, 1990) (Amended December 7, 1995)
This regulation sets forth pre-construction review requirements for new, modified, or relocated facilities, to ensure that the operation of such facilities does not interfere with progress in attainment of the national ambient air quality standards, and that future economic growth within the South Coast Air Quality Management District (District) is not unnecessarily restricted. The specific air quality goal of this regulation is to achieve no net increases from new or modified permitted sources of nonattainment air contaminants or their precursors.
In addition to nonattainment air contaminants, this regulation will also limit emission increases of ammonia, and Ozone Depleting Compounds (ODCs) from new, modified or relocated facilities by requiring the use of Best Available Control Technology (BACT).
(c) Effective Date
This regulation, as amended on December 7, 1995 shall become effective on February 1, 1996. Applications received by the District shall be subject to Regulation XIII as amended and in effect at the time such application is deemed complete, regardless of the date of equipment installation.
(d) State Standards
For the purpose of this regulation, all references to the national ambient air quality standards and nonattainment shall be interpreted to include state ambient air quality standards. This subsection shall not be included as part of any revision to the District's portion of the State Implementation Plan (SIP).
Failure to comply with the requirements of Regulation XIII - New Source Review, shall result in enforcement action pursuant to the California Health and Safety Code and/or the federal Clean Air Act.
