KERAPCD RULE 210-6 SMALL SOURCE SITING ALLOWANCE
LAST REVISED 05/02/96

RULE 210.6 - Small Source Siting Allowance - Adopted 8/19/91, Rescinded 5/2/96

I. Purpose

The purpose of this Rule is to define procedures for distribution of emissions reductions from the Small Source Siting Allowance (SSSA) for offsets for qualifying new or modified emissions units for which application has been deemed complete pursuant to Rule 210.1 New and Modified Source Review.

II. Definitions

A. Unless otherwise defined, terms as used in this Rule are defined in District New Source Review and Emission Reduction Banking Rules.

B. Yearly Potential Emissions: the sum of maximum emissions from all emissions units at a stationary source, based on the maximum design capacity to emit, unless otherwise limited by enforceable conditions contained in Authorities to Construct and Permits to Operate.

III. Exemptions

Emissions units which are exempt from offset requirements by Rule 210.1 - New and Modified Source Review or exempt from permit by Rule 202 - Exemption shall not under any circumstances receive credits from the SSSA.

IV. Allocation of Emissions

A. The SSSA was established by the District to allow certain stationary sources to locate or modify in the District. Allocations from the SSSA shall be available, to the extent allowed pursuant to Subsections IV.B. through IV.H., to a stationary source that incorporates BARCT (where BARCT has not been determined by CARB for a source category RACT shall be considered BARCT) for all emissions units within the stationary source with a maximum ability to emit after the proposed construction (or modification) either less than 2 tons per year of each affected pollutant, or less than the following amounts:
 

Affected Pollutant
Daily Maximum in Lbs. Per Day
VOC's 30
Nitrogen Oxides (as NO2) 40
PM10 30
Sulfur Oxides (as SO2) 30

B. Allocations from the SSSA shall be made on the last Wednesday of each month or other schedule deemed practicable by the Control Officer for permit applicants meeting the criteria of Subsection IV.A. Monthly allocations for each affected pollutant shall not exceed the following percents of the total SSSA accumulation:
 

Affected Pollutant

Monthly Allocation Percent 

of SSSA Bank

VOC's 10
Nitrogen Oxides 10
PM10 10
Sulfur Oxides 10
 

C. If more emission credits are requested during a month than are available from the SSSA allocation, the allocation shall be distributed to:

  1. On site soil or ground water remediations performed by, or under the jurisdiction of, or pursuant to the requirements of, an authorized health officer, agricultural commissioner, fire protection officer, or other authorized governmental officer, provided the applicant has demonstrated offsets are not available, then
  2. Applicants requesting the lowest amount of credits, including SSSA credits previously obtained for this request (among applicants requesting the same amount of credit on a pollutant by pollutant basis shall be given according to the date applications were deemed complete). If during processing of an application additional credits are requested, the previously distributed credits shall be returned to the allocation and supplemental is requested shall be considered as a new request for the entire amount.
  3. If an applicant does not receive all requested SSSA offsets initially, the application shall be considered each subsequent month until the 145 day after the application has been deemed complete at which time the request for SSSA offsets expires.

D. If fewer emission credits are requested than are available as provided in Subsection IV.B., excess credits shall be added to the allocation for the following month.

E. Each stationary source shall maintain a balance of total SSSA credits obtained. In no case shall this amount exceed emissions listed in the Subsection IV.A. table.

F. For purposes of Rule 210.1 Subsection V. - Calculations Low-Emitting stationary sources with maximum daily emissions greater than those listed in Subsection IV.A. of this Rule and, gaining access to the SSSA solely because total emissions are less than 2 tons per year, shall have the corresponding maximum daily emissions calculated on an average yearly basis.

G. If a subject facility holds Banking Certificate(s) issued pursuant to Rule 210.3 - Banking, then that credit shall be used (including interpollutant offset of emissions) before access to the SSSA is allowed.

H. Allocations from the SSSA shall not be banked or transferred.

I. Authorities to Construct and Permits to Operate issued using SSSA for NSR approval shall not be transferable from one owner to another, Permit to Operate can be, provided the new owner qualifies for the SSSA (or provides the necessary offsets).

V. Return of SSSA Allocations

A. The portion of emissions reductions and offsets as described in Rule 210.1 shall be included in the SSSA accumulation.

B. A source which has received SSSA credits shall return credits to the SSSA accumulation if:

  1. . An Authority to Construct using SSSA credits is surrendered, expires or is revoked.
  2. A Permit to Operate using SSSA credits is surrendered, revoked or not renewed. In addition to SSSA credits any other actual emissions reductions from such action shall be credited to the SSSA accumulation.
  3. A continuous program of onsite construction is not commenced within 6 months of the ATC issuance date; the ATC shall thus become invalid.
C. Any other actual emissions reductions which the Control Officer determines to be surplus may also be included in the SSSA accumulation.
