          100. GENERAL


               101. Purpose:   The  purpose  of this rule is to comply with

                    Title 17 and Title 26, California  Code  of Regulations

                    regarding the use of serpentine material for surfacing.


               102. Exemption,  Sand and Gravel Operations: The  provisions

                    of Section 302  through  Section 305 shall not apply to

                    sand and gravel operations.


               103. Exemption, Roads, Mines and  Deposits:   The provisions

                    of  Section  301  shall  not apply to roads located  at

                    serpentine quarries, asbestos  mines,  or mines located

                    in serpentine deposits.


               104. Exemption, Road Maintenance:  The provisions of Section

                    301  shall not apply to maintenance operations  on  any

                    existing  road  surfaces, or at the construction of new

                    roads in serpentine  deposits, as long as no additional

                    asbestos-containing serpentine  material  is applied to

                    the road surface.



               105. Emergency  Road  Repairs:  The  Air  Pollution  Control

                    Officer  may  issue  a  temporary  exemption  from  the

                    requirements   of  Section  301  to  an  applicant  who

                    demonstrates that  a  road repair is necessary due to a

                    landslide, flood, or other  emergency  and that the use

                    of material other than serpentine is not  feasible  for

                    this  repair.   The Air Pollution Control Officer shall

                    specify the time  during  which such exemption shall be

                    effective, provided that no  exemption  shall remain in

                    effect longer than six (6) months.

                    Section 300 shall not apply to serpentine material that

                    is an integral part  of  bituminous  concrete, portland

                    cement concrete, bituminous surface, or  other  similar

                    cemented materials.

                    following statement:   "Serpentine material may have an

                    asbestos content greater  than five percent (5.0%).  It

                    is unlawful to use serpentine  material  for  surfacing

                    unless  the  material  has  been  tested  and  found to

                    contain  less  than  or  equal  to  five percent (5.0%)

                    asbestos.   All  tests  for asbestos content  must  use

                    California Air Resources  Board  Test Method 435, and a

                    sells, supplies, or offers for sale serpentine material

                    that he or she represents, either orally or in writing,

                    to  be  suitable  for  surfacing or to have an asbestos

                    content  that is five percent  (5.0%)  or  less,  shall

                    provide to  each  purchaser  or  person  receiving  the

                    serpentine  material  a written receipt which specifies

                    the following information:   the  amount  of serpentine

                    material   sold   or   supplied;  the  dates  that  the

                    serpentine material was  produced, sampled, tested, and

                    supplied  or  sold; and the  asbestos  content  of  the

                    serpentine material as measured by ARB Test Method 435.

                    A copy of the receipt  must,  at all times, remain with

                    the serpentine material during transit and surfacing.



               304. Any  person who sells, supplies,  or  offers  for  sale

                    serpentine  material,  shall  retain for a period of at

                    least  seven  years from the date  of  sale  or  supply

                    copies of all receipts  and  copies  of  any analytical

                    test  results  from asbestos testing of the  serpentine

                    material.   All receipts  and  test  results  shall  be

                    provided to the  Air  Pollution  Control Officer or his

                    designee for review upon request.



               305. If ARB Test Method 435 has been used  to perform two or

                    more  tests  on any one volume of serpentine  material,

                    whether  by  the   same  or  a  different  person,  the

                    arithmetic average of  these test results shall be used

                    to determine the asbestos  content  of  the  serpentine

                    material.



          400. ADMINISTRATIVE REQUIREMENTS



               401. Any  person subject to this rule shall comply with  all
