RULE 360 - ACID DEPOSITION RESEARCH SURCHARGE

Applicable in the North Coast Unified AQMD only:

Any stationary source which emits to the atmosphere nitrogen oxides or sulfur oxides, expressed as nitrogen dioxide or sulfur dioxide, respectively, in an amount equal to or exceeding 1000 tons in the calender year prior to fee billing shall be assessed an acid deposition research surcharge pursuant to Section 90604-90607, California Administrative Code. Said surcharge shall be assessed to the permittee by the District prior to November 1 of each year based upon emissions for the prior calendar year and shall be calculated according to the formula:

  1. Surcharge = $ 5.00 x E, where  
    E = Mass of emissions, in tons per calendar year, of nitrogen oxides and/or sulfur oxides, expressed as nitrogen dioxide or sulfur dioxide, from the stationary source as determined by the Control Officer. If only one pollutant is emitted in the amount of 1000 tons or more per year the mass of emissions shall be determined based only on that one pollutant.
     
  2. Said surcharge shall be past due sixty days after notice of the assessment by the District and subject to the penalty and suspension procedures as specified in Rule 300(f).
