  1. Authority to Construct:
    Before any person builds, erects, alters, or replaces any article, machine, equipment or other contrivance which may cause the issuance of air contaminants or the use of which may eliminate or reduce or control the issuance of air contaminants, such person shall obtain a separate written authority to construct for each permit unit from the Air Pollution Control Officer.  An authority to construct shall remain in effect until the permit to operate the equipment for which the application was filed is granted or denied or the application is cancelled.
     
  2. Permit to Operate:
    Before any article, machine, equipment or other contrivance described in Rule 200.1. may be operated or used, a separate written permit shall be obtained from the Air Pollution Control Officer for each permit unit.  No permit to operate or use shall be granted either by the Air Pollution Control Officer, or the Hearing Board for any article, machine, equipment or contrivance described in Rule 200.1. until the information required is presented to the Air Pollution Control Officer and such article, machine, equipment or contrivance is altered, if necessary, and made to conform to the standards set forth in Rule 208 and elsewhere in these rules and regulations.
     
  3. Review of Permits:
    The Air Pollution Control Officer may at any time require from an applicant for, or holder of, any Authority to Construct or Permit to Operate, such information, analyses, plans or specifications as will disclose the nature, extent, quantity or degree of air contaminants which are or may be discharged into the atmosphere.
