           Construct, and other permit actions in the District's
           permit system.


1.2      Applicability

           This Rule shall apply to all owners and operators of stationary

1.3      Exemptions

           following of the California Health and Safety Code, relating 
           to district permit systems and fees.  The requirement for 
           Emission Statements derives from Section 182 of the federal 
           Clean Air Act.

PART 3   PERMIT FEES


3.1      Filing Fee

           Every applicant for an Authority to Construct or a Permit to 
           Operate any article, machine, equipment, or other contrivance 
           for which an Authority to Construct or Permit to Operate is 
           required by State law or District rule shall pay a filing fee 
           of $100.00.

    3.1.1    Any filing fee shall be tendered along with the application 
             for which it is due.  Any application for an Authority to 
             Construct or Permit to Operate shall not be complete until 
             the filing fee and applicable permit fee(s) are paid.


3.2      Permit to Operate

           Every applicant for a Permit to Operate for an existing source, 
           which does not presently hold any current District permit, 
           shall, in addition to the filing fee prescribed herein, pay 
           the permit fee(s) prescribed by the applicable schedule(s) set
           forth in District Rule 301.

    3.2.1    The permit fee(s) determined from Rule 301 shall be tendered 
             along with the completed application and the filing fee.  
             An application for a Permit to Operate is not complete until 
             the applicable permit fee(s) and filing fee are paid.

    3.2.2    In the event any additional permit fee is incurred prior to 
             issuance of the Permit to Operate, the applicant shall pay 
             the additional fee within 30 days of the District's subsequent 
             billing(s).  Additional permit fees are incurred when the
             applicant requests revisions to the project, or where, due 
             to some other circumstance, the District's actual cost to 
             complete the permit process, at $80.00 per hour of staff time, 
             exceeds the Rule 301 fee(s) paid.

         3.2.2.1   The District may bill the applicant for additional 
                   permit fee(s) incurred  when it has completed its 
                   processing of the application.  The Permit to Operate
                   shall be issued upon receipt of the applicant's payment 
                   of this final billing.  If no additional permit fee has 
                   been incurred, the Permit to Operate shall be issued 
                   upon the District's completion of its evaluation and 
                   determination that the requested permit may be issued.

         3.2.2.2   Alternatively, the District may bill the applicant 
                   periodically for additional permit fee(s) incurred in 
                   the course of a project of long duration. Upon good
                   cause, the District may suspend action on the application 
                   until payment of periodic billing statements is received, 
                   but such suspension is not mandatory.  The Permit to 
                   Operate shall be issued upon the District's completion 
                   of its processing of the application and receipt of the 
                   applicant's payment of the final billing statement.


3.3      Authority to Construct

           Every applicant for an Authority to Construct for a new source 
           or for modification(s) to an existing source shall, in addition 
           to the filing fee prescribed herein, pay the permit fee(s) 
           prescribed by the applicable schedule set forth in District 
           Rule 301.  

    3.3.1    The permit fee(s) determined from Rule 301 shall be tendered 
             along with the completed application and the filing fee.  
             An application for an Authority to Construct is not complete 
             until the applicable permit fee(s) and filing fee are paid.

    3.3.2    In the event any additional permit fee is incurred prior to 
             issuance of the final Permit to Operate, the applicant shall 
             pay the additional fee within 30 days of the District's 
             subsequent billing(s).  Additional permit fees are incurred 
             when the applicant requests revisions to the project, or 
             where, due to some other circumstance, the District's actual 
             cost to complete the permit process, at $80.00 per hour of 
             staff time, exceeds the Rule 301 fee(s) paid.

         3.3.2.1   The District may bill the applicant for additional 
                   permit fee(s) incurred  when it has completed its 
                   processing of the application.  The final Permit to
                   Operate for the project shall be issued upon receipt 
                   of the applicant's payment of this final billing.  
                   If no additional permit fee has been incurred, the 
                   final Permit to Operate shall be issued upon the 
                   District's completion of its evaluation and 
                   determination that the final Permit to Operate may be
                   issued.

         3.3.2.2   Alternatively, the District may bill the applicant 
                   periodically for additional permit fee(s) incurred in 
                   the course of a project of long duration. Upon good 
                   cause, the District may suspend action on the 
                   application until payment of periodic billing statements 
                   is received, but such suspension is not mandatory.
                   The final Permit to Operate shall be issued upon the 
                   District's completion of its processing of the 
                   application and receipt of the applicant's payment of 
                   the final billing statement.


3.4      Transfer of Ownership

           Where an application is filed for the transfer from the prior 
           permittee to a successor in interest of a Permit to Operate or 
           an Authority to Construct, by reason of the transfer of 
           ownership of the facility, and where no alteration, addition, 
           or change in location of the permitted equipment has been made, 
           the applicant shall pay a $80.00 transfer of ownership fee.

    3.4.1    Only a valid Permit to Operate or Authority to Construct may 
             be transferred.  If any such permit has not been renewed by 
             payment of the Annual Renewal Fee pursuant to Section 4.1, 
             for which a billing statement is outstanding, the transfer
             of ownership fee shall include the outstanding Annual Renewal 
             Fee.  The transfer of ownership fee shall not include any 
             Part 5 delinquency penalties associated with the outstanding 
             Annual Renewal Fee, except where the successor in interest 
             includes any person who was a partner or equity holder in the 
             transferring business.

    3.4.2    Any transfer of ownership fee shall be tendered along with 
             the application for which it is due.  Any application for 
             transfer of an Authority to Construct or Permit to Operate 
             shall not be complete until the transfer of ownership fee is
             paid and a completed Annual Renewal Information Request is 
             submitted, if such Information Request is outstanding at the 
             time of application.


3.5      Transfer of Location

           Where an application is filed for a revised Permit to Operate 
           by reason of a transfer of the location of already-permitted 
           equipment, where there is no change in ownership and no 
           modification of the transferred equipment, the applicant shall 
           pay only the filing fee required pursuant to Section 3.1.

    3.5.1    Any such filing fee shall be tendered along with the 
             application for which it is due.  Any application for transfer 
             of location is not complete until the filing fee is paid.


3.6      Identical Replacement

           Where an application is filed for a revised Permit to Operate 
           by reason of an identical replacement of an entire permitted 
           unit or a component thereof, where a revision to the equipment 
           description of the existing permit is necessary, the applicant 
           shall pay only the filing fee required by Section 3.1.

    3.6.1    Any such filing fee shall be tendered along with the 
             application for which it is due.  Any application for an 
             identical replacement is not complete until the filing fee 
             is paid.


3.7      Permit Granted by Hearing Board

           In the event a Permit to Operate or Authority to Construct is 
           granted by the Hearing Board after denial by the Air Pollution 
           Control Officer, the permit fee provisions prescribed by 
           Sections 3.2 or 3.3 shall apply, except that the applicable fee 
           shall be paid within 30 days of the date of billing by the 
           District.


3.8      Revising Permit Terms or Conditions

           Where an application is filed requesting revisions to the terms 
           or conditions of an existing Permit to Operate, or when the 
           District issues a revised Permit to Operate pursuant to Rule 217, 
           the applicant shall pay the actual cost incurred by the District 
           in processing the application or completing the Rule 217 
           revisions.  Such fee shall be paid within 30 days of the date of 
           billing by the District, and shall be based on the rate of 
           $80.00 per hour of staff time expended in processing the 
           application or completing the Rule 217 permit revisions. 

    3.8.1    Any application requesting revisions to the terms or conditions 
             of an existing Permit to Operate shall be accompanied by a 
             filing fee of $100.00, and the application shall not be 
             complete until the filing fee is paid.

    3.8.2    The revised Permit to Operate requested by the applicant 
             shall be issued upon the District's receipt of the applicant's 
             payment of the revision fee  pursuant to Section 3.8.

    3.8.3    The revised Permit to Operate initiated by the District 
             pursuant to Rule 217 shall be issued upon its completion.  
             The Rule 217 revision fee incurred pursuant to Section 3.8 
             above may be billed along with the next annual permit renewal 
             fee billing issued by the District pursuant to Part 4 below, 
             or it may be billed separately, upon the District's election.

    3.8.4    The annual renewal date of any revised Permit to Operate shall 
             continue to be the anniversary date of the original permit.


3.9      Withdrawal or Denial

           When an application for any of the above permit actions is 
           submitted to the District it initiates action by the District, 
           which commits staff resources in reliance upon the request of 
           the applicant.  In the event an applicant withdraws or cancels 
           its application, or the District denies the requested Permit to 
           Operate or Authority to Construct, the resources expended by 
           the District in processing the application become an obligation 
           owing to the District as follows:

    3.9.1    Any filing fee, transfer of ownership fee, transfer of 
             location fee, or identical replacement fee, prescribed by 
             Sections 3.1, 3.4, 3.5, or 3.6, is utilized in the initial 
             processing of the application and is nonrefundable upon any 
             withdrawal or denial.

    3.9.2    The unused portion of any permit fee paid pursuant to 
             Section 3.2 or 3.3  shall be refunded by the District after 
             an application has been withdrawn or denied.  The unused 
             portion shall be determined by subtracting the time spent on 
             the application at $80.00 per hour from the amount of the 
             fee paid by the applicant.

    3.9.3    The actual time spent by the District in processing any 
             application for a revision to permit terms or conditions, 
             pursuant to Section 3.8, shall be billed by the District at 
             the rate of $80.00 per hour upon withdrawal or denial of the
             application.  Such fee shall be paid within 30 days of the 
             date of billing, and constitutes a legal obligation owing to 
             the District for work done in reliance upon the applicant's 
             request.


3.10       Multiple Location

           When any permit has been issued to operate movable equipment, 
           or to operate equipment at more than one location, only one 
           annual renewal fee will be charged.  The annual renewal date 
           will be the anniversary date of the issuance of the original
           permit.


3.11       Government Agencies

           Federal, State, or local governmental agencies, offices, or 
           special districts shall pay the fees set forth in this Rule 
           to the extent allowed under Chapter 2, Division 7, Table 1 of 
           the California Government Code (commencing with Section 6103) 
           and Chapter 55, Part 3, Division 26 of the California Health 
           and Safety Code (commencing with Section 42311).


3.12       Professional Services, Materials, Equipment

           Where the District supplies professional services, materials, 
           or equipment at the request of any applicant for, or holder of, 
           a District permit, the requesting party(ies) shall pay the 
           actual cost incurred by the District in providing such services, 
           materials or equipment.  Such fee shall be based on the rate of 
           $80.00 per hour of staff time spent performing the services, 
           and upon the actual cost of any materials and equipment supplied, 
           and shall be paid within 30 days of the date of billing by the
           District.  The District may bill for such services, materials or 
           equipment either in conjunction with the next annual renewal fee 
           billing or it may issue billing statements periodically for work 
           it has completed.  Where the request is from a small, 
           identifiable group of permittees, the fee may be prorated among 
           them.

         3.12.1    District costs for such services, materials or equipment 
                   may not be recovered pursuant to this Section where 
                   funding is otherwise available from other fee schedules.  
                   The District may elect to provide such services, 
                   materials or equipment without charge or at reduced cost 
                   to promote legitimate District interests.


3.13       CEQA Compliance

           Where the District performs any of the requirements of the 
           California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) in connection with 
           its evaluation and issuance of any Permit to Operate or Authority 
           to Construct, the applicant or permit holder shall pay the actual
           cost incurred by the District in performing such requirements.  
           Such fee shall be an addition to any other permit fee(s) 
           determined pursuant to this Rule, and shall be based on the 
           rate of $80.00 per hour of staff time spent performing the 
           requirements plus the actual cost of any contractors retained 
           to perform any of the requirements, and it shall be paid within 
           30 days of the date of billing by the District. 


3.14       Payment of Fees

    3.14.1   No Permit to Operate or Authority to Construct shall be 
             issued to any applicant until any applicable fee pursuant 
             to this Rule, and any other fee obligation of the applicant 
             arising under any other District rule, is paid in full.

    3.14.2   All fees prescribed by this Rule must be paid in full by 
             check or money order within the time periods specified.  
             Partial payments are not accepted and will not constitute 
             satisfaction of the obligation established by this Rule, 
             nor will they suspend the running of the period of time 
             during which payments must be made.  In the event fees are 
             not paid within the periods set forth herein, the provisions 
             of Part 5 shall apply.



PART 4   ANNUAL RENEWAL FEES (ARFs)


4.1      Renewing Permits

           Every Permit to Operate and Authority to Construct issued by 
           the District is valid for a period of one year from the date 
           of its issuance or renewal.  Each Permit to Operate and 
           Authority to Construct is renewable one year after the date of 
           issuance, and annually thereafter, upon payment of the Annual 
           Renewal Fee determined in accordance with the provisions of 
           this Part.  When a Permit to Operate is issued for a project 
           previously issued an Authority to Construct, the annual renewal 
           date of the Permit to Operate shall remain the same as the 
           renewal date of the Authority to Construct.

    4.1.1    Any Permit to Operate or Authority to Construct which is not 
             renewed in accordance with the provisions of this Part shall 
             expire and become void as provided in Part 5.  After such 
             expiration of any Permit to Operate or Authority to Construct, 
             continued operation, building, or modification of the subject 
             unit or facility is prohibited until such time as a complete 
             application for a replacement Permit to Operate or Authority 
             to Construct is submitted to the District.

    4.1.2    Any Rule 217 permit revision fee which has accrued pursuant 
             to Section 3.8 within the prior 12 months shall be included 
             on the annual renewal fee billing statement(s) issued by the 
             District.

    4.1.3    No Permit to Operate or Authority to Construct may be renewed 
             until all outstanding fees pursuant to this Rule, and any 
             other fee obligation(s) of the permit owner arising under 
             any other District rule, is paid in full.


4.2      Renewal Procedure; Sources with Annual Emissions Less than 300 
         Tons per Year 
           
           All sources whose combined annual emissions of affected 
           pollutants from all aggregated permit units are less than 
           300 tons per year, as determined from the prior year's annual 
           renewal emission determination, shall complete and return the 
           Annual Renewal Information Request provided by the District 
           within the time period specified in the Request.  Failure to 
           timely complete and submit the Request may result in suspension 
           of the Permit to Operate or Authority to Construct.

    4.2.1    Upon determination of the permittee's annual emissions and 
             the corresponding Annual Renewal Fee, the District shall 
             notify the permittee by mail of the Annual Renewal Fee due 
             and the date by which it must be submitted to the District.  
             The Annual Renewal Fee and the Rule 217 revision fee, if any, 
             must be submitted within the time period specified in the 
             renewal fee billing statement in order to complete the renewal 
             of the Permit to Operate or Authority to Construct.


4.3      Renewal Procedure; Sources with Annual Emissions Greater than 
         300 Tons per Year

           All sources whose combined annual emissions of affected 
           pollutants from all aggregated permit units are more than 
           300 tons per year, as determined from the District's annual 
           renewal emission determination for the facility's operations 
           two years prior, shall complete the Annual Renewal Information 
           Request provided by the District within the time period specified 
           in the Request.  Failure to timely complete and submit the 
           Request may result in suspension of the Permit to Operate or 
           Authority to Construct.

    4.3.1    After the District's determination of the permittee's Billable 
             Emissions and Annual Renewal Fee, based on $88 per ton of 
             Billable Emissions, it will issue semi-annual billing 
             statements to recover the renewal fee plus any Rule 217 
             revision fee. Every permittee shall submit each semi-annual 
             fee payment within the time period specified in each semi-
             annual billing statement in order to successfully complete 
             the renewal of the Permit to Operate or Authority to Construct.  The annual renewal of each Permit to Operate or Authority to
             Construct held by the permittee is complete upon the submission 
             of the final semi-annual fee payment.


4.4      Emission Statements

           For all sources whose combined annual emissions from the entire 
           facility are greater than 25 tons of either nitrogen oxides 
           (NOx) or reactive organic compounds (ROC), as derived from the 
           prior year's annual renewal emission determination, the permittee
           shall submit an Emission Statement for each Permit to Operate 
           and Authority to Construct as described below, in accordance 
           with the mandatory provisions of Section 182(a)(3)(B)(ii) of 
           the federal Clean Air Act. In addition, the District may require 
           any other permittee to submit an Emission Statement where the 
           District has reason to believe the facility's annual emissions 
           should be certified by the permittee.

    4.4.1    Any permittee receiving an Emission Statement form from the 
             District shall certify the process information and annual 
             emissions described therein by completing the Emission 
             Statement.  Such certification shall be made by an official of 
             the permittee having authority to represent it.  Upon 
             certification the permittee shall return the completed 
             Emission Statement to the District along with its submission 
             of the Annual Renewal Fee payment.

    4.4.2    In the event the permittee determines it cannot certify the 
             information on the Emission Statement it shall prepare a 
             statement indicating what it believes its process information 
             and annual emissions actually were during the reporting period 
             of the Emission Statement, along with a detailed explanation 
             of its rationale therefor, signed by a responsible 
             representative of the permittee, and return it to the District 
             along with the original Emission Statement form and its 
             submission of the Annual Renewal Fee payment.

    4.4.3    The requirement to submit an Emission Statement shall not 
             alter the time period for completing a permittee's renewal of 
             any Permit to Operate or Authority to Construct by the payment 
             of the applicable Annual Renewal Fee.


4.5      Billable Emissions

           Annual renewal fees for all Permits to Operate and Authorities 
           to Construct which are determined with reference to annual 
           emissions shall be based upon the billable emissions from each 
           permit unit or source. Billable emissions are the quantity, 
           rounded to the nearest ton, of the combined annual emissions of 
           nitrogen oxides (expressed as nitrogen dioxide), total organic 
           gases (except those containing sulfur), gaseous sulfur compounds, 
           expressed as sulfur dioxide, and all particulate matter, plus 
           25 percent of the annual emissions of carbon monoxide.


4.6      Annual Renewal Fee Determination;  All Sources except Gasoline 
         Dispensing Facilities, Wastewater Treatment Facilities, and 
         NESHAP Sources 

           The annual renewal fee for each Permit to Operate held by 
           sources with combined emissions of affected pollutants from 
           all aggregated permit units of less than 300 tons per year 
           shall be determined according to the following schedule:

           Billable Emissions                  Annual Renewal Fee
           per Permit; Tons per Year                 per Permit    
         _________________________             __________________

    4.7.1    The annual renewal fee for each Permit to Operate for gasoline 
             storage tanks with annual gasoline throughput of less than 
             120,000 gallons per year, and which do not have installed 
             Phase II vapor recovery systems, shall be determined by the 
             following schedule:

           Annual Gasoline Throughput              Annual Renewal Fee    
         __________________________              __________________

         0     -      < 7500 gal/yr                      $ 15.00   
         7500    -   < 120,000 gal/yr                    $ 88.00 
 
    4.7.2    The annual renewal fee for each Permit to Operate for gasoline 
             dispensing facilities with installed Phase II vapor recovery 
             systems shall be determined by the following formula:

                           Fee = a + b

           where "a" = a nozzle fee determined by multiplying the total 
                       number of gasoline nozzles at the facility times 
                       $27.00 per nozzle; and

                 "b" = a throughput fee based on the annual gasoline 
                       throughput at the facility, determined with 
                       reference to the following schedule: 


           Annual Gasoline Throughput           Throughput Fee
          __________________________            ______________

             0   -   < 400,000 gal/yr            $  135.00

4.8      Annual Renewal Fee Determination; Wastewater Treatment Facilities

           The annual renewal fee for each Permit to Operate for wastewater 
           treatment facilities, separate from permits for ancillary 
           equipment, shall be the greater of $88.00 and the fee determined 
           by the formula:

                 Fee = Actual flow in million gallons per day x $810.00

           where actual flow is determined from the facility during 
           FY 96-97, as reported on the Annual Renewal Information Request.  
           The total fees collected from all wastewater treatment plants 
           shall be equal to the actual costs incurred by the District in 
           activities related to wastewater treatment facilities during 
           FY 94-95.


4.9      Annual Renewal Fee Determination; NESHAPS Sources

           The annual renewal fee for all aggregated Permits to Operate 
           for facilities which are subject to the requirements contained 
           in District Rule 424 Part 4, Subpart M (National Emission 
           Standards for asbestos) shall be $ 6231.00 for each entire

4.10       Annual Renewal Fee Determination; Authorities to Construct

           The annual renewal fee for each Authority to Construct (AC) 
           held by sources with combined emissions of affected pollutants 
           of less than 300 tons per year from all aggregated permit units 
           shall be determined by the following formula:

                             Fee = t + e

           where:

           "t" is a time fee based on the actual costs incurred by the 
           District for staff time spent working on the Authority to 
           Construct project at the rate of $80.00 per hour.

           "e" is an emission fee based on the billable emissions, defined 
           at Section 4.5, which shall be determined from the following 
           schedule:


           Billable Emissions                      Emission Fee

PART 5   DELINQUENCY PENALTIES


5.1      Permit Fee and Annual Renewal Fee Delinquency Penalties

           If any fee payment required pursuant to Part 3 or Part 4 of 
           this Rule is not submitted within 30 days of the issuance date 
           of the District's billing statement, it shall be considered 
           delinquent, and penalties for the delinquency shall be imposed 
           as set forth below.

    5.1.1    For purposes of this Part any fee payment shall be considered 
             to be timely if it is postmarked on or before the 30th day 
             following the statement issuance date.  If the 30th day falls 
             on a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday, the fee payment may be
             postmarked on the next business day with the same effect as 
             if it had been postmarked on the 30th day.

    5.1.2    If no fee payment is submitted within the time prescribed by 
             Section 5.1.1 , a delinquency penalty of 50 percent of the 
             amount of the billed fee, to a maximum of $5000.00, shall be 
             added to the amount of fee due, and the permittee shall 
             thereupon be notified by mail of the increased fee.

    5.1.3    If a fee payment is timely paid, but the tendered amount is 
             less than the amount due, the payment shall not be accepted, 
             and the time for proper payment continues to run.

    5.1.4    If an annual renewal fee (Part 4), requested revision fee or 
             Rule 217 revision fee (Section 3.8) payment is delinquent and 
             the fee plus the delinquency penalty is not received within 
             15 days of the District's notification pursuant to Section 
             5.1.2, the delinquency penalty shall be increased to 75 
             percent of the original amount due, to a maximum of $7500.00, 
             and the permittee shall thereupon be notified by mail of the
             increased fee.

    5.1.5    If, in the case of a failure to pay permit fees required 
             pursuant to Part 3 (except Section 3.8), the delinquent fee 
             plus penalties assessed pursuant to Section 5.1.2 are not 
             received within 30 days of the date of the District's 
             notification, the permittee shall be considered to be in 
             default of its permit fee obligation and in violation of
             this Rule.  In such case the District shall immediately notify 
             the applicant that its Permit to Operate or Authority to 
             Construct is denied and that further operation of the subject 
             equipment without a valid permit is prohibited.  Such denial 
             shall not preclude the applicant from submitting another 
             permit application and beginning the process anew, although 
             the delinquent fee and penalty shall become an obligation 
             owing to the District, which may be recovered along with any 
             permit fee from such new application.

    5.1.6    If, in the case of a failure to pay Rule 217 revision fees 
             (Section 3.8), or annual renewal fees (Part 4), the delinquent 
             Annual Renewal Fee plus penalties assessed pursuant to 
             Section 5.1.4 are not submitted within 30 days of the date of 
             the District's notification, any affected Permit to Operate 
             or Authority to Construct shall automatically expire.  In such 
             case, the District shall immediately notify the permittee that 
             its Permit to Operate or Authority to Construct has expired 
             and that further operation of the subject equipment without a 
             valid permit is prohibited.  Such expiration shall not preclude 
             the permittee from submitting an application for a replacement 
             permit, although the delinquent fee and penalty shall become an
             obligation owing to the District, which may be recovered along 
             with any permit fee from such new application.

         5.1.6.1   In the event the person whose permit has expired applies 
                   for a new permit, the unpaid annual renewal fee portion 
                   of this delinquent fee  shall be prorated from the 
                   original permit's annual renewal date to the date of 
                   billing for the replacement permit and added to the 
                   permit fee for the replacement permit.

    5.1.7    If, in the case of a failure to pay the permit fee for a permit 
             issued by the Hearing Board (Section 3.7), the delinquent fee 
             plus penalty assessed pursuant to Section 5.1.2 is not received 
             within 30 days of the date of the District's notification, the
             delinquency penalty shall be increased to 75 percent of the 
             original amount due, to a maximum of $7500.00, and the 
             permittee shall thereupon be notified by mail of the increased 
             fee.

         5.1.7.1   If the delinquent permit fee plus penalties assessed 
                   pursuant to Sections 5.1.2 and 5.1.7 are not submitted 
                   within 30 days of the District's notification, the 
                   permittee shall be in default of its fee obligation and 
                   in violation of this Rule.  In such case, the Air 
                   Pollution Control Officer shall petition the District
                   Hearing Board to hold a hearing to determine whether 
                   any or all of the facility's permits should be revoked 
                   pursuant to Health and Safety Code Section 42307.

         5.1.7.2   After the District has initiated a permit revocation 
                   action through the filing of an accusation with the 
                   Hearing Board, but before the revocation hearing is
                   held, the permittee may still cure its default by 
                   submitting all outstanding fees, plus delinquency 
                   penalties and a $250 revocation initiation fee.

         5.1.7.3   If any Permit to Operate is revoked by the Hearing 
                   Board on account of such default, it may be reinstated 
                   or replaced with a new permit, upon written request of 
                   the permittee and upon full payment of all outstanding 
                   fees, penalties, revocation initiation fee, and a 
                   reinstatement fee of $375.
