Rule 902

General Provisions

New Source Performance Standards



The provisions of this Regulation apply to new sources commencing

construction, modification or reconstruction after the dates

specified in the Performance Standards of this Regulation.

(a) Notification, Record Keeping and Reporting

(1) Any owner or operator subject to the provisions of

these rules and regulations shall furnish the Air

Pollution Control Officer written notification as

follows:

(A) A notification of the date construction (or

reconstruction) of an affected facility is

commenced no later than 30 days after such

date.

(B) A notification of the anticipated date of

initial startup of an affected facility not

more than 60 days nor less than 30 days prior

to such date.

(C) A notification of the actual date of initial

startup of an affected facility within 15

days after such date.

(D) A notification of any operational change to

an existing facility which may increase the

emission rate to which a standard applies,

except exempted modifications, 60 days or as

soon as practicable before the change is

commenced.

(E) A notification of the date upon which

demonstration of the continuous monitoring

system performance commences, not less than

30 days prior to such date.

(2) Any owner or operator subject to the provisions of

these rules and regulations shall maintain for a

period of two years a file of all measurements,

including monitoring and performance testing

measurements, and all other reports and records

required by all applicable rules.

(3) Any owner or operator subject to the provisions of

these rules and regulations shall maintain for a

period of two years a record of the occurrence and

duration of any startup, shutdown, or malfunction

in operation of any affected facility and a file

of all measurements including continuous

monitoring system, monitoring device and

performance testing measurements; all continuous

monitoring system performance evaluations; all

continuous monitoring system or monitoring device

calibration checks; adjustments and maintenance

performed on these systems or devices; and all

other information required by this rule recorded

in a permanent form suitable for inspection.

(4) A written report of excess emissions as defined in

applicable rules and the date and time identifying

each period during which the continuous monitoring

system was inoperative except for zero and span

checks and the nature of the system repairs or

adjustments shall be submitted to the Air

Pollution Control Officer by each owner or

operator for each calendar quarter. The report

shall include the magnitude of excess emissions as

measured by the required monitoring equipment

reduced to the units of the applicable standard,

the date, and time of commencement and completion

of each period of excess emissions. Periods of

excess emissions due to startup, shutdown, and

malfunction shall be specifically identified. The

nature and cause of any malfunction (if known),

the corrective action taken, or preventive

measures adopted shall be reported. Each

quarterly report is due by the 30th day following

the end of the calendar quarter. If there were no

excess emissions for a quarter a report shall be

submitted indicating that there were no excess

emissions. The reports and data required by this

Subsection shall be in addition to any reports

required under Rule 218.

(b) Performance Tests

(1) Within 60 days after achieving the maximum production

rate at which the affected facility will be operated

but not later than 180 days after initial startup of

such facility and at such other times as may be

required by the Air Pollution Control Officer, the

owner or operator of such facility shall conduct

performance test(s) and furnish the control officer a

written report of the results of such performance

test(s). The Air Pollution Control Officer may, at his

option, conduct the required performance tests and may

charge the owner or operator a fee not to exceed the

actual cost of such tests as specified in these rules

and regulations.

(2) Performance tests shall be conducted and data reduced

in accordance with the test methods and procedures

prescribed by the Air Pollution Control Officer.

(3) Performance tests shall be conducted under such

conditions as the Air Pollution Control Officer shall

specify to the plant operator based on representative

performance of the affected facility. The owner or

operator shall make available to the Air Pollution

Control Officer such records as may be necessary to

determine the conditions of the performance tests.

Operations during period of startup, shutdown, and

malfunction shall not constitute representative

conditions of performance tests unless otherwise

specified in the applicable rule.

(4) The owner or operator of an affected facility shall

provide the Air Pollution Control Officer 30 days prior

written notice of the performance test to afford the

Air Pollution Control Officer the opportunity to have

an observer present.

(c) Compliances

(1) Compliance with standards in these rules, other than

opacity standards, shall be determined only by

performance tests established by paragraph (b) of this

rule, except where performance tests are not specified.

(2) Compliance with the opacity standard shall be

determined by a qualified visible emissions observer.

Where the presence of uncombined water is the only

reason for failure to meet the opacity standard, such

failure shall not be a violation of this rule.

(d) A person shall not build, erect, install, alter or replace

any equipment subject to the provisions of this Regulation

unless that person first complies with the provisions of

rule 201 and all other provisions of these rules and

regulations.

(e) All procedural provisions and prohibitions of the rules and

regulations of the District shall be applicable to all

persons and sources coming under the purview of this

Regulation.

(f) If other rules in these rules and regulations are more

restrictive or contain additional emission standards, those

rules shall apply.
