RULE 206. STANDARDS FOR GRANTING APPLICATIONS

(Adopted 9-1-74, Revised 5-16-90)
 
  1. The Air Pollution Control Officer shall deny an Authority to Construct, Permit to Operate or use, except as provided in Rule 208 if the applicant does not show that every 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, is so designed, controlled, or equipped with such air pollution control equipment that it may be expected to operate without emitting air contaminants in violation of Section 41700, 41701, or 44300 (et.seq.) of the Health & Safety Code, or of the District Rules and Regulations.
     
  2. Before an Authority to Construct or Permit to Operate is granted, the Air Pollution Control Officer may require the applicant to provide and maintain such facilities as are necessary for sampling and testing purposes in order to secure information that will disclose the nature, extent, quantity or degree of air contaminants discharged into the atmosphere from the article, machine, equipment or other contrivance described in the Authority to Construct or Permit to Operate.  In the event of such requirement, the Air Pollution Control Officer shall notify the applicant in writing of the required size, number and location of sampling holes; the size and location of the sampling platform; the access to the sampling platform; and, the utilities for operating the sampling and testing equipment.  The platform and access shall be constructed in accordance with the General Industrial Safety Orders of the State of California.
     
  3. In acting upon a Permit to Operate, if the Air Pollution Control Officer finds that the article, machine, equipment or other contrivance has not been constructed in accordance with the Authority to Construct, he shall deny the Permit to Operate.  The Air Pollution Control Officer shall not accept any further application for permit to operate that article, machine, equipment, or other contrivance so constructed until he finds that the article, machine, equipment or other contrivance has been constructed in accordance with the Authority to Construct.
     
  4. The granting of a permit does not exempt the holder from present and future regulations of the Air Pollution Control District.
