          Procedures for Issuing Permits to Operate for Sources Subject to
          Title V of the Federal Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990

          [Reference:  40 CFR Parts 70.1,70.4,70.6(a)(6),70.7(a)(6) and
          70.7(b)]


          Chapter I.  PURPOSE AND GENERAL REQUIREMENTS


          Rule 5.100 PURPOSE

          The purpose of Regulation 5 is to implement the requirements of
          Title V of the federal Clean Air Act, as amended in 1990, for
          permits to operate.  Additionally, Regulation 5 is used to
          implement the Phase II acid deposition control provisions of
          Title IV of the Clean Air Act, including provisions for Acid Rain
          Permits.

          Rule 5.110 GENERAL REQUIREMENTS OF REGULATION 5

          After the effective date of Regulation 5, the Mendocino County
          Air Quality Management District will implement an operating
          permit program pursuant to the requirements of this Regulation,
          as provided in Title V.  Title V provides for the establishment
          of operating permit programs for sources which emit regulated air
          pollutants, including attainment and nonattainment pollutants.

          Sources subject to Regulation 5 include major sources, acid rain
          units subject to Title IV of the Clean Air Act, solid waste
          incinerators subject to section 111 or 129 of the Clean Air Act,
          and any other sources specifically designated by rule of the U.S.
          EPA.

          Sources subject to Regulation 5 shall obtain permits to operate
          pursuant to it.  Each permit to operate issued pursuant to
          Regulation 5 will contain conditions and requirements adequate to
          ensure compliance with and the enforceability of the following:

          (a)  All applicable provisions of Division 26 of the Health and
               Safety Code, commencing with section 39000;

          (b)  All applicable orders, rules, and regulations of the District
               and the California Air Resources Board;

          (c)  All applicable provisions of the applicable state
               implementation plan required by the Clean Air Act;

          (d)  Each applicable emission standard or limitation, rule,
               regulation, or requirement adopted or promulgated to implement
               the Clean Air Act; and

          (e)  The requirements of all preconstruction permits issued
               pursuant to Parts C and D of the Clean Air Act.

          The operation of an emissions unit to which Regulation 5 is
          applicable without a permit or in violation of any applicable
          permit condition or requirement constitutes a violation of
          Regulation 5.

                              [Reference: 40 CFR 70.6(a)(6)(i) and 70.7(b)]

          Rule 5.120 PRECEDENCE OVER CONFLICTING REQUIREMENTS AND
                     CONTINUATION OF EXISTING PROGRAM

          The requirements of Regulation 5 shall augment and take
          precedence over conflicting administrative requirements of other
          provisions of the District's rules and regulations, if any.
          Regulation 5 does not alter any applicable requirement that a
          source obtain preconstruction permits, or permits to operate
          pursuant to Health and Safety Code Section 42301.  The District
          will continue to implement its existing program pertaining to
          prevention of significant deterioration, Regulation 1, Rule 220,
          and permits required by Regulation 1, Rules 200, 220 and 240,
          including authorities to construct, Rule 200 or new source
          review, Rule 220.  Nothing in Regulation 5 limits the authority
          of the District, including the hearing board, to deny, revoke or
          terminate a permit pursuant to provisions of state law, including
          California Health and Safety Code Sections 40808 and 42301-42309,
          or to impose conditions on a permit pursuant to state law.

          (p2) Potential to Emit

          For the purposes of Regulation 5, "potential to emit" as it
          applies to an emissions unit and a stationary source is defined
          below.

              (1) Emissions Unit

          The "potential to emit" for an emissions unit is the maximum
          capacity of the unit to emit a regulated air pollutant or
          hazardous air pollutant considering the unit's physical and
          operational design.  Physical and operational limitations on the
          emissions unit shall be treated as part of its design,  if the
          limitations are set forth in permit conditions which address
          applicable federal requirements.  Physical and operational
          limitations include, but are not limited to the following:
          limits placed on emissions; and restrictions on operations such
          as hours of operation and type or amount of material combusted,
          stored, or processed;

              (2) Stationary Source

          The "potential to emit" for a stationary source is the sum of the
          potential to emit from all emissions units at the stationary
          source.  If two or more hazardous air pollutants are emitted at a
          stationary source, the potential to emit for each of those
          hazardous air pollutants shall be combined to determine
          applicability.  Fugitive emissions shall be considered in
          determining the potential to emit for sources as specified in 40
          CFR Part 70.2 Major Source (2), and sources of hazardous air
          pollutant emissions.  Notwithstanding the above, any hazardous
          air pollutant emissions from any oil or gas exploration or
          production well (with its associated equipment) and any pipeline
          compressor or pump station shall not be aggregated with emissions
          of similar units for the purpose of determining a major source of
          hazardous air pollutants, whether or not such units are located
          in contiguous areas or are under common control.

             [Reference: 40 CFR 70.2 Potential to Emit and Major Source(2)]

          (p3) Preconstruction Permit

          A "preconstruction permit" is a permit issued prior to
          construction which authorizes construction, including:


              (1) An Authority To Construct issued pursuant to the
          District's program for the prevention of significant
          deterioration of air quality required by section 165 of the Clean
          Air Act or Regulation 1, Rule 220 of the District; or

              (2) An Authority To Construct issued pursuant to the
          District's new source review program required by sections 172 and
          173 of the Clean Air Act, or Regulation 1, Rule 220.

          (r1) Regulated Air Pollutant

          A "regulated air pollutant" is any pollutant which is emitted
          into or otherwise enters the ambient air, and for which the U.S.
          EPA has adopted an emission limit, standard, or other
          requirement.  Regulated air pollutants include the following:

              (1) Oxides of nitrogen and volatile organic compounds;

              (2) Any pollutant for which a national ambient air quality
          standard has been promulgated pursuant to section 109 of the
          Clean Air Act;

              (3) Any pollutant subject to a new source performance standard
          promulgated pursuant to section 111 of the Clean Air Act;

              (4) Any ozone-depleting substance specified as a Class I
          (chlorofluorocarbons) or Class II (hydrofluorocarbons) substance
          pursuant to Title VI of the Clean Air Act; and

              (5) Any pollutant subject to a standard or requirement
          promulgated pursuant to section 112 of the Clean Air Act, including:

                  A.  Any pollutant listed pursuant to section 112(r) of the
          Clean Air Act (Prevention of Accidental Releases) shall be
          considered a "regulated air pollutant" upon promulgation of the
          list;

                  B.  Any hazardous air pollutant subject to a standard or
          other requirement promulgated by the U.S. EPA pursuant to section
          112(d) or adopted by the District pursuant to 112(g) and (j) of
          the Clean Air Act shall be considered a "regulated air pollutant"
          for all sources or categories of sources:  1) upon promulgation
          of the standard or requirement, or 2) 18 months after the
          standard or requirement was scheduled to be promulgated pursuant
          to section 112(e)(3) of the Clean Air Act;

                  C.  Any hazardous air pollutant subject to a District case-
          by-case emissions limitation determination for a new or modified
          source, prior to the U.S. EPA promulgation or scheduled
          promulgation of an emissions limitation shall be considered a
          "regulated air pollutant" when the determination is made pursuant
          to section 112(g)(2) of the Clean Air Act.  In case-by-case
          emissions limitation determinations, the hazardous air pollutant
          shall be considered a "regulated air pollutant" only for the
          individual source for which the emissions limitation
          determination was made.

                           [Reference: 40 CFR 70.2 Regulated Air Pollutant]

          Chapter IV  ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEDURES FOR SOURCES


          Rule 5.400 PERMIT REQUIREMENT AND APPLICATION SHIELD

          (a) Permit Requirement

          No person shall operate an emissions unit at a stationary source
          subject to the requirements of Regulation 5 except in compliance
          with permits to operate issued pursuant to Regulation 5 or under
          the protection of the application shield of subsection (b).
          Except as provided in subsection (b) and in Rule 5.405(c),
          operation of an emissions unit at a source subject to Regulation
          5 without a permit issued pursuant to Regulation 5 constitutes a
          violation of Regulation 5.  Operation of an emissions unit at a
          permitted source out of compliance with the terms of the permit
          constitutes a violation of Regulation 5.

          Regulation 5 does not alter any applicable requirement that a
          source obtain preconstruction permits.

                                      [Reference 40 CFR 70.7(a)(6) and (b)]

          (b) Application Shield

          If a responsible official submits, pursuant to Regulation 5, a
          timely and complete application for a permit, a source shall not
          be deemed in violation of the requirement to have a permit to
          operate until the Air Pollution Control Officer takes final
          action on the application.

                                  [Reference: 40 CFR 70.7(b) and (e)(2)(v)]

          This application shield does not apply to sources applying for
          permit modifications.  For permit modifications, a source shall
          operate in accordance with the applicable federal requirements,
          the permit to operate issued pursuant to Regulation 5 and any
          temporary permit to operate issued pursuant to section 42301.1 of
          the Health and Safety Code.

                 [Reference: 40 CFR 70.7(a)(6)(iii), 70.7(b) and (e)(2)(v)]

          (c) Compliance With Other Permit Requirements

          If a responsible official submits a timely and complete
          application for an initial permit, the source shall operate in
          accordance with the requirements of any valid permit to operate
          issued pursuant to section 42301 of the Health and Safety Code
          until the Air Pollution Control Officer takes final action on the
          application.  If a responsible official submits a timely and
          complete application for renewal of a permit to operate, the
          source shall operate in accordance with the permit to operate
          issued pursuant to Regulation 5, notwithstanding expiration of
          this permit, until the Air Pollution Control Officer takes final
          action on the application.

          (d) Termination of Application Shield

          The application shield of subsection (b) shall cease to insulate
          a source from enforcement action if a responsible official of the
          source fails to submit any additional information requested by
          the Air Pollution Control Officer pursuant to  Rule 5.420 in a
          timely manner as specified by the Air Pollution Control Officer.

          state;

             (2) The Air Pollution Control Officer shall provide a copy of
          the revised permit to the responsible official and the U.S. EPA;

             (3) While the Air Pollution Control Officer need not make a
          completeness determination on a written request, the Air
          Pollution Control Officer shall notify the responsible official
          if the Air Pollution Control Officer determines that the permit
          can not be revised as an administrative permit amendment.

                                             [Reference: 40 CFR 70.7(d)(3)]

             (1) The need to correct a material mistake or inaccurate
          statement;

             (2) The need to revise or revoke a permit to operate to assure
          compliance with applicable federal requirements;
             
             (3) The need to incorporate any new, revised, or additional
          applicable federal requirements, if the remaining authorized life
          of the permit is 3 years or greater, no later than 18 months

          (b) In processing a permit reopening, the Air Pollution Control
          Officer shall use the same procedures as for an initial permit
          and additionally:

             (1) Provide written notice to a responsible official and the
          U.S. EPA at least 30 days, or a shorter period in the case of an
          emergency, prior to reopening a permit; and

             (2) Complete action to revise the permit as specified in the
          notice of reopening within 60 days after the written notice to
          the U.S. EPA pursuant to Rule 5.540(d), if the U.S. EPA does not
          object, or after the Air Pollution Control Officer has responded
          to U.S. EPA objection pursuant to Rule 5.545(b).

          Rule 5.580 OPERATIONAL FLEXIBILITY

          The Air Pollution Control Officer shall allow specified changes
          in operations at a source without requiring a permit revision for
          conditions that address an applicable federal requirement.  The

          constitute a modification under Title I of the Clean Air Act or
          Regulation 1, Rules 130(m2), 200, or 220, or that result in an
          exceedance of the emissions allowable under the facility's
          permit, whether expressed therein as a rate of emissions or in
          terms of total emissions without revision to the permit.  The
          source may gain operational flexibility through use of the
          following options:

                           [Reference: 40 CFR 70.4(b)(12) and (d)(3)(viii)]

          (a) Alternative Operating Scenarios

          The Air Pollution Control Officer shall allow the use of
          alternative operating scenarios provided that:

             (1) Terms and conditions applicable to each operating scenario
          are identified by the responsible official in the permit
          application; and

             (2) The terms and conditions are approved by the Air Pollution
          Control Officer; and

             (3) The terms and conditions are incorporated into the permit;
          and

             (4) The terms and conditions are in compliance with all
          applicable District, state, and federal requirements.

          A permit condition shall require a contemporaneous log to record
          each change made from one operating scenario to another.

                                            [Reference: 40 CFR 70.6(a)(9)]

          (b) Voluntary Emissions Caps

          The Air Pollution Control Officer shall issue a permit that
          contains terms and conditions that allow for trading of emissions
          increases and decreases within the stationary source solely for
          the purpose of complying with a voluntary emissions cap
          established in the permit independent of otherwise applicable
          federal requirements provided that:

             (1) The requirements of subsections (a)(1), (a)(3) and (a)(4),
          above, are met;

             (2) The terms and conditions are approved by the Air Pollution
          Control Officer as quantifiable and enforceable; and

             (3) The terms and conditions are consistent with the applicable
          preconstruction permit.

          A permit condition shall require that a responsible official
          provide written notice to the Air Pollution Control Officer 30
          days in advance of a change by clearly requesting operational
          flexibility under this Rule.  The written notice shall describe
          the change, identify the emissions unit which will be affected,
          the date on which the change will occur and the duration of the
          change, any change in emissions of any air pollutant, whether
          regulated or not, and any new emissions of any air pollutant not
          emitted before the change, whether regulated or not.

          [Reference: 40 CFR 70.4(b)(12)(iii) and 70.6(a), (a)(10) and (c)]

          (c) Contravening an Express Permit Condition

          The Air Pollution Control Officer shall allow for changes in
          operation that contravene an express condition addressing an
          applicable federal requirement in a permit to operate provided
          that the following conditions are met:

             (1) The change will not violate any applicable federal
          requirement;
             
             (2) The change will not contravene federally-enforceable
          conditions that are monitoring (including test methods),
          recordkeeping, reporting, or compliance certification
          requirements;

             (3) The change is not a modification under Title I of the Clean
          Air Act or any provision of Regulation 1, Rule 220;

             (4) The change does not result in exceeding the emissions
          allowable under the permit, whether expressed therein as a rate
          of emissions or in terms of total emissions;

             (5) Written notice is given to the Air Pollution Control
          Officer 30 days in advance of a change, and the notice clearly
          indicates which term or condition will be contravened, requests
          operational flexibility under this subsection, describes the
          change, identifies the emissions units which will be affected,
          the date on which the change will occur, the duration of the
          change, any change in emissions of any air pollutant, whether
          regulated or not, and any new emissions of any air pollutant not
          emitted before the change, whether regulated or not; and

             (6) The Air Pollution Control Officer has not provided a
          written denial to the responsible official within 30 days of
          receipt of the request for an operational change.

          Rule 5.600 APPLICABLE FEDERAL REQUIREMENTS

          A permit to operate issued pursuant to Regulation 5 shall contain
          permit conditions that will assure compliance with all applicable
          federal requirements.  A permit to operate shall incorporate all
          applicable federal requirements as permit conditions.  The
          following procedure shall be used to incorporate an applicable
          federal requirement as a permit condition:

          (a) A permit condition that addresses an applicable federal
          requirement shall be specifically identified in the permit, or
          otherwise distinguished from any requirement that is not
          enforceable by the U.S. EPA;

          (b) Where an applicable federal requirement and a similar
          requirement that is not federally enforceable apply to the same
          emissions unit, both shall be incorporated as permit conditions,
          provided that they are not mutually exclusive; and

          (c) Where an applicable federal requirement and a similar
          requirement that is not federally enforceable apply to the same
          emissions unit and are mutually exclusive (e.g., require
          different air pollution control technology), the requirement
          specified in the preconstruction permit (or, in the case of
          sources without preconstruction permits, the more stringent
          requirement) shall be incorporated as a permit condition and the
          other requirement shall be referenced.

          enforcement action by the District, including monetary civil
          penalties, permit termination, revocation and reissuance of the
          permit, permit modification, or denial of permit renewal;

             (4) The "need to halt or reduce a permitted activity in order
          to maintain compliance" shall not constitute a defense for non-
          compliance with any permit condition;

             (5) A pending permit action or notification of anticipated non-
          compliance does not stay any permit condition; and

             (6) Within a reasonable time period, the permittee shall
          furnish any information requested by the Air Pollution Control
          Officer, in writing, for the purpose of determining compliance

          for a fixed term not to exceed five years from the time of
          issuance.  A permit to operate for an acid rain unit shall have a
          fixed permit term of five years.  A permit to operate for a solid
          waste incinerator shall have a permit term of 12 years; however,
          the permit shall be reviewed at least every five years.

          schedule.  If fees are not paid on schedule, the permit is
          forfeited.  Operation without a permit subjects the source to
          potential enforcement action by the District and the U.S. EPA
          pursuant to section 502(a) of the Clean Air Act.

          unit, a permit issued pursuant to Regulation 5 shall contain
          specific conditions for each operating scenario, including each
          alternative operating scenario.  Each operating scenario,
          including each alternative operating scenario, identified in the
          permit must meet all applicable federal requirements and all of
          the requirements of this section.  Furthermore, the source is
          required to maintain a contemporaneous log to record each change
          from one operating scenario to another.

          all applicable federal requirements, including those authorizing
          emissions averaging;

          (b) Emissions from any individual emissions unit shall not exceed
          any emissions limitation, standard, or other requirement;

          (c) Any emissions limitation, standard, or other requirement shall
          be enforced through continuous emission monitoring, where
          applicable; and

          (d) All affected emissions units under a voluntary emissions cap
          shall be considered to be operating in violation of the permit,
          if the voluntary emissions cap is exceeded.

          require compliance with any federal standard or requirement
          promulgated pursuant to Title IV (Acid Deposition Control) of the
          Clean Air Act and any federal standard or requirement promulgated
          pursuant to Title V of the Clean Air Act, except as modified by
          Title IV.  Acid rain unit permit conditions shall include the
          requirements of 40 CFR Part 72.9 and the following provisions:

          (a) The sulfur dioxide emissions from an acid rain unit shall not
          exceed the annual emissions allowances (up to one ton per year of
          sulfur dioxide may be emitted for each emission allowance
          allotted) that the source lawfully holds for that unit under
          Title IV of the Clean Air Act or the regulations promulgated
          pursuant to Title IV;

          (b) Any increase in an acid rain unit's sulfur dioxide emissions
          authorized by allowances acquired pursuant to Title IV of the
          Clean Air Act shall not require a revision of the acid rain
          portion of the operating permit provided such increases do not
          require permit revision under any other applicable federal
          requirement;

          (c) Although there is no limit on the number of sulfur dioxide
          emissions allowances held by a source, a source with an acid rain
          unit shall not use these emissions allowances as a defense for
          noncompliance with any applicable federal requirement or District
          requirement, including Regulation 1, Rule 220; and

          (d) An acid rain unit's sulfur dioxide allowances shall be
          accounted for according to the procedures established in
          regulations promulgated pursuant to Title IV of the Clean Air
          Act.
