LAST REVISED 11/11/11

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 500 tons in a calender year selected by the Air Resources Board, shall be assessed an Acid Deposition Research Surcharge pursuant to Section 90620 - 90623 and subsequent amendments of the California Code of Regulations. The surcharge assessment shall occur once the Office of Administrative Law has approved the adopted State Regulations. This surcharge, in addition to an administrative fee, shall be assessed to the permittee by the District each year and will be based upon emissions from a base year inventory and a dollar per ton selected by the Air Resources Board and shall be calculated according to the formula:

(a) Surcharge = $/Ton 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 500 tons or more per year the mass of emissions shall be determined based only on that one pollutant.

(b) 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).
