RULE 4.1 - PERMITS REQUIRED
(Adopted 8/91; Amended 11/93)
- Authorization to Construct: Any person building, erecting, altering or replacing any article, machine,
equipment or other contrivance, the use of which may cause the issuance of air contaminants or the use of which
may eliminate or reduce or control the issuance of air contaminants, shall first obtain written authorization for
such construction from the APCO. An Authorization to Construct shall remain in effect for two years or until the
Permit to Operate the equipment for which the application was filed is granted or denied or the application is
canceled, but must be renewed annually.
- Permit to Operate: Before any article, machine, equipment or other contrivance for which an Authorization
to Construct has been issued, may be operated or used, a Permit to Operate shall first be obtained from the APCO.
Whenever necessary and appropriate to ensure compliance with all applicable permit conditions, the APCO may issue
a temporary permit to operate. The temporary permit to operate shall specify a reasonable period of time during
which the equipment so permitted may be operated in order for the District to determine whether it will operate
in accordance with the conditions specified in the Authority to Construct.
- Federal Operating Permit: A source subject to Rule 10.3 shall obtain a Federal Operating Permit from
the District under Title V of the Federal Clean Air Act as amended in 1990. The District will issue a Federal Operating
Permit separately from, and in addition to, the permits required pursuant to Regulation IV. The requirements of
Rule 10.3 shall augment and take precedence over conflicting administrative requirements of other provisions of
the District's Rules and Regulations.
