Chapter I. -- PURPOSE AND GENERAL REQUIREMENTS

Rule 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.
