100 GENERAL

101 PURPOSE: The purpose of this rule is to provide for the review of new and modified stationary air pollution sources and to provide mechanisms, including emission offsets, by which authorities to construct such sources may be granted without interfering with the attainment or maintenance of ambient air quality standards.

A facility in possession of a valid Title V Operating Permit issued pursuant to Rule 207, TITLE V - FEDERAL OPERATING PERMIT PROGRAM, seeking a permit for a new emissions unit or a modified emissions unit which qualifies as a significant Title V modification, may choose to have their permit reviewed through an Enhanced New Source Review process, thereby meeting all the procedural requirements specified in Sections 401 through 408 of Rule 207, TITLE V - FEDERAL OPERATING PERMIT PROGRAM and the compliance requirements in Section 305 of Rule 207, TITLE V - FEDERAL OPERATING PERMIT PROGRAM. The Title V Operating Permit would then be amended administratively to reflect this permitting action.

102 APPLICABILITY: This rule shall apply to all new stationary sources and emissions units and all modifications to existing stationary sources and emissions units which are subject to Rule 201, GENERAL PERMIT REQUIREMENTS and which, after construction or modification, emit or may emit any affected pollutants. This rule shall not apply to prescribed burning of forest, agriculture or range land, road construction or any other non-point source common to timber harvesting or agricultural practices. This Section 102 shall not be used to exempt any stationary source or modification, which would be subject to review under US Environmental Protection Agency regulations, from permit requirements.

The Enhanced New Source Review process applies only to facilities in possession of a valid Title V Operating Permit issued pursuant to Rule 207, TITLE V - FEDERAL OPERATING PERMIT PROGRAM, which are installing a new emissions unit or performing a significant Title V modification as defined in Section 233 of Rule 207, TITLE V - FEDERAL OPERATING PERMIT PROGRAM, and which have specifically requested in writing, in the permit application package, to have the application reviewed pursuant to the Enhanced New Source Review process.

103 SEVERABILITY: If a court of competent jurisdiction issues an order that any provision of this rule is invalid, it is the intent of the Board of Directors of the District that other provisions of this rule remain in full force and affect, to the extent allowed by law.

110 EXEMPTION - EMERGENCY EQUIPMENT: The Air Pollution Control Officer shall exempt an emissions unit from the requirements of Sections 302, and 303, if it would provide emergency electrical power, emergency water pumping for flood control or fire fighting provided the following requirements are met.

111 EXEMPTION - TEMPORARY SOURCE: The Air Pollution Control Officer shall exempt an emissions unit from the requirements of Sections 302 and 303, if it is a temporary source and is not a major stationary source or major modification or is not located at a major stationary source.

112 EXEMPTION - NOTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS: Except for applications reviewed under the Enhanced New Source Review process pursuant to Section 404, the requirements of Sections 405, 406, 407, and 408.2 relating to notification, publication, and public inspection of Preliminary Decisions; and notification, publication, and public inspection of Final Action shall not apply if the application is for a new or modified stationary source or emissions unit which has an increase in potential to emit, calculated pursuant to Sections 415, 416 or 417, as applicable, of less than:

Pollutant   Pounds per quarter
Reactive organic compounds ................................................ 7,500
Nitrogen oxides ................................................ 7,500
Sulfur oxides ................................................ 13,650
PM10 ................................................ 7,500
Carbon monoxide ................................................ 49,500

113 EXEMPTION: REPLACEMENT EQUIPMENT: The requirements of Sections 302 and 303 shall not apply to replacement equipment.

114 EXEMPTION: RULE COMPLIANCE: The requirements of Sections 302 and 303 shall not apply to modifications necessary to comply with standards contained in Regulation 4, PROHIBITIONS, or in the State Implementation Plan. Where more than one compliance option is allowed, then this exemption only applies to the emissions resulting from the least emissive option. The incremental emissions difference between the least emissive option and the selected option must comply with Sections 302 and 303. This exemption shall not apply to modifications in production rate, hours of operation, or other changes or additions to existing equipment not necessary for compliance with standards contained in District Regulation 4, PROHIBITIONS, or in the State Implementation Plan.

200 DEFINITIONS:

Unless otherwise defined below, the terms in this rule are defined in Rule 201, GENERAL PERMIT REQUIREMENTS, Rule 204, EMISSION REDUCTION CREDITS, and Rule 207, TITLE V - FEDERAL OPERATING PERMIT PROGRAM.

201 ACTUAL EMISSIONS: Measured or estimated emissions which most accurately represent the emissions from an emissions unit.

202 ACTUAL EMISSIONS REDUCTIONS: Reductions of historic actual emissions from an emissions unit selected for on-site or off-site emissions offsets. Historic actual emission reductions shall be calculated, adjusted and certified pursuant to Rule 204, EMISSION REDUCTION CREDITS.

203 ACTUAL INTERRUPTIONS OF ELECTRICAL POWER: When electrical service is interrupted by an unforeseeable event.

204 ACTUAL OPERATING DAYS: Any day of operation which results in the emission of an affected pollutant from the emissions unit.

205 AFFECTED POLLUTANTS: Reactive organic compounds (ROC), nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulfur oxides (SOx), PM10, carbon monoxide (CO), lead, asbestos, beryllium, mercury, vinyl chloride, fluorides, sulfuric acid mist, hydrogen sulfide, total reduced sulfur, and reduced sulfur compounds, and municipal waste organics, municipal waste metals, and municipal waste acid gases, as defined in 40 CFR Part 60 Subpart Ea.

206 AMBIENT AIR QUALITY STANDARDS: State and federal ambient air quality standards. For the purpose of submittal to the US Environmental Protection Agency for inclusion in the California State Implementation Plan all references in this rule to Ambient Air Quality Standards shall be interpreted as National Ambient Air Quality Standards.

207 BEST AVAILABLE CONTROL TECHNOLOGY (BACT):

208 CARGO CARRIERS: Cargo carriers are trains dedicated to a specific source.

209 CEQA: The California Environmental Quality Act, Public Resources Code, Section 21000, et seq.

210 CONTIGUOUS PROPERTY: Two or more parcels of land with a common boundary or separated solely by a public roadway or other public right-of-way.

211 COST-EFFECTIVE: A cost per unit of emissions reduction which is lower than or equivalent to the maximum unit costs, for the affected pollutant or source category, of the same emission reduction through the use of Best Available Control Technology, calculated in current year dollars, in accordance with methodology and criteria specified in the BACT Cost-Effectiveness Guidelines developed by the District.

212 EMISSION OFFSET: An emission reduction credit that compensates for an emission increase of an affected pollutant from a new or modified source subject to the requirements of Sections 302 and 303.

213 EMISSIONS LIMITATION: One or more permit conditions specific to an emissions unit which restricts its maximum emissions, at or below the emissions associated with the maximum design capacity. An emissions limitation shall be:

214 EMISSIONS UNIT: An identifiable operation or piece of process equipment such as an article, machine, or other contrivance which controls, emits, may emit, or results in the emissions of any affected pollutant or hazardous air pollutant (HAP), directly or as fugitive emissions. Emissions unit shall not include the open burning of agricultural biomass.

215 FLUORIDES: Elemental fluorine and all fluoride compounds.

216 FUGITIVE EMISSIONS: Those emissions which could not reasonably pass through a stack, chimney, vent or other functionally equivalent opening.

217 HAZARDOUS AIR POLLUTANT (HAP): Any air pollutant listed pursuant to Section 112(b) (42 U.S.C Section 7412(b) of the Federal Clean Air Act).

218 HISTORIC ACTUAL EMISSIONS: Actual emissions for the existing emissions unit averaged over the two year period immediately preceding the date of application for an Authority to Construct. If the last two years are unrepresentative of normal source operations as determined by the Air Pollution Control Officer, then any two consecutive years of the last five years that represent normal source operation may be used. If, at any time during the two year period, actual emissions exceeded allowed or permitted emission levels, then actual emissions shall be reduced to reflect emission levels that would have occurred if the unit were in compliance with all applicable limitations and rules. If less than one year has passed since the date of issuance of the Permit to Operate then the historic actual emissions shall be zero. If less than two years have passed since the date of issuance of the Permit to Operate then the historic actual emissions shall be the actual emissions over the one year period immediately preceding the date of application.

219 HISTORIC POTENTIAL EMISSIONS: Emissions based on the potential to emit of the emissions unit prior to modification. In determining the historic potential to emit, emissions limitations shall be treated as part of an emissions unit's design only if the limitations are representative of normal operations or if emission offsets were provided from a previous permitting action. For the purposes of the above determination, "normal operations" is defined as the usual or typical operation of an emissions unit resulting in actual emissions which are at least 80% of the specific limits contained in the emission unit's Authority to Construct or Permit to Operate. If there are no enforceable limiting conditions, an emissions unit's potential to emit shall be the unit's historic actual emissions. For a new emissions unit, historic potential emissions are equal to zero. For BACT purposes, historic potential emissions are equal to the potential to emit without regards to the 80%.

220 MAJOR STATIONARY SOURCE: A stationary source that emits or has the potential to emit an affected pollutant in quantities equal to or exceeding any of the following thresholds:

Emissions associated with emissions units exempt from permit requirements pursuant to Rule 201, GENERAL PERMIT REQUIREMENTS shall be included in the potential to emit of the stationary source. Fugitive emissions associated with the emissions unit or stationary source shall not be included in the potential to emit of the emissions unit or stationary source unless the source belongs to one of the categories of stationary sources included in Rule 207, TITLE V - FEDERAL OPERATING PERMIT PROGRAM, Section 219.3.

221 MAJOR MODIFICATION: Modification to a major stationary source which results in an increase in the potential to emit equal to or exceeding any of the following thresholds when aggregated with all other creditable increases and decreases in emissions from the source over the period of five consecutive years before the application for modification, and including the calendar year of the most recent application:

222 MODIFICATION: Any physical change, change in method of operation (including change in fuel characteristics), addition to, or any change in hours of operation, or change in production rate, which:

223 NONATTAINMENT POLLUTANT: Any pollutant and any precursors of such pollutants which have been designated "nonattainment" for the District by the US Environmental Protection Agency in the Federal Register, or which have been designated nonattainment for the District by the California Air Resources Board pursuant to Section 39607 of the Health and Safety Code.

224 PEAKING POWER PLANT: A fossil-fueled combustion turbine power generation unit with an annual capacity factor of 25% or less, which is used during peak electricity demand periods, and may operate for short periods, with frequent start-ups and shutdowns.

225 PM10: Particulate matter with an aerodynamic diameter smaller than or equal to a nominal 10 microns as measured by an applicable reference test method or methods found in Article 2, Subchapter 6, Title 17, California Code of Regulations (commencing with Section 94100).

226 PORTABLE EQUIPMENT: Equipment which is periodically relocated and is not operated more than a total of 180 days at any one stationary source in the District within a continuous 12 month period.

227 POTENTIAL TO EMIT: The maximum physical and operational design capacity to emit a pollutant. Limitations on the physical or operational design capacity, including emissions control devices and limitations on hours of operation, may be considered only if such limitations are incorporated into the applicable Authority to Construct and Permit to Operate. The potential to emit shall include directly emitted fugitive emissions.

228 PRECURSOR: A pollutant that, when emitted into the atmosphere, may undergo either a chemical or physical change which then produces another pollutant for which an ambient air quality standard has been adopted, or whose presence in the atmosphere will contribute to the violation of one or more ambient air quality standards. The following precursor- secondary air contaminant relationships shall be used for the purposes of this rule:

304 INTERPOLLUTANT EMISSION OFFSETS: Interpollutant emission offsets are discouraged and may only be allowed between precursor contaminants. The Air Pollution Control Officer may approve interpollutant emission offsets for precursor pollutants on a case by case basis, provided that the applicant demonstrates through the use of an air quality model that the emission increases from the new or modified source will not cause or contribute to a violation of an ambient air quality standard. In such cases, the Air Pollution Control Officer shall impose, based on an air quality analysis, emission offset ratios in addition to the requirements of Section 303. Interpollutant emission offsets between PM10 and PM10 precursors may be allowed. PM10 emissions shall not be allowed to offset nitrogen oxides or reactive organic compound emissions in ozone nonattainment areas, nor be allowed to offset sulfur oxide emissions in sulfate nonattainment areas. In no case shall the compounds excluded from the definition of Reactive Organic Compounds be used as offsets for Reactive Organic Compounds. Interpollutant emission offsets used at a major stationary source must receive written approval by the US Environmental Protection Agency.

305 AMBIENT AIR QUALITY STANDARDS: In no case shall emissions from a new or modified stationary source, prevent or interfere with the attainment or maintenance of any applicable ambient air quality standard. The Air Pollution Control Officer may require the use of an air quality model to estimate the effects of a new or modified stationary source. In making this determination the Air Pollution Control Officer shall take into account the mitigation of emissions through emission offsets obtained pursuant to this rule.

306 DENIAL, FAILURE TO MEET STANDARDS: The Air Pollution Control Officer shall deny any Authority to Construct or Permit to Operate if the Air Pollution Control Officer finds that the subject of the application would not comply with the standards set forth in District, state, or federal rules, regulations or statutes.

307 DENIAL, FAILURE TO MEET CEQA: The Air Pollution Control Officer shall deny an Authority to Construct or Permit to Operate if the Air Pollution Control Officer finds that the project which is the subject of the application would not comply with CEQA.

400 ADMINISTRATIVE REQUIREMENTS:

The following administrative requirements in Sections 401-417 shall apply to any activities regulated by this rule, except for the review of power plants over 50 megawatts. Power plants over 50 megawatts shall be subject to the review requirements of Section 418.

401 ALTERNATIVE SITING: For those sources for which an analysis of alternative sites, sizes, and production processes is required under Section 1723 of the Clean Air Act, the Air Pollution Control Officer shall require the applicant to prepare an analysis functionally equivalent to the requirements of Division 13 of the Public Resources Code (California Environmental Quality Act-CEQA).

402 COMPLETE APPLICATION: The Air Pollution Control Officer shall determine whether the application is complete not later than 30 days after receipt of the application, or after such longer time as both the applicant and the Air Pollution Control Officer have agreed in writing. If the Air Pollution Control Officer determines that the application is not complete, the applicant shall be notified in writing of the decision specifying the information required. Upon receipt of any re-submittal of the application, a new 30-day period to determine completeness shall begin. Completeness of an application or re-submitted application shall be evaluated on the basis of the information requirements set forth in the District's List and Criteria (adopted pursuant to Article 3, 65940 through 65944 of Chapter 4.5 of Division l of Title 7 of the California Government Code) as it exists on the date on which the application or re-submitted application was received, and on payment of the appropriate fee pursuant to Rule 301 - PERMIT FEES, STATIONARY SOURCES. The Air Pollution Control Officer may, during the processing of the application, request an applicant to clarify, amplify, correct, or otherwise supplement the information submitted in the application.

403 AIR QUALITY MODELS: All air quality models used for the purposes of this rule shall be consistent with the requirements provided in the most recent edition of US Environmental Protection Agency "Guidelines on Air Quality Models, OAQPS 1.2-080" unless the Air Pollution Control Officer finds that such model is inappropriate for use. After making such finding the Air Pollution Control Officer may designate an alternate model only after allowing for public comment, and only with concurrence of the US Environmental Protection Agency. Credit shall not be given for stacks higher than that dictated by good engineering practice. All modeling costs associated with the siting of a stationary source shall be borne by the applicant.

404 ENHANCED NEW SOURCE REVIEW: Applications for which the applicant has requested review pursuant to this Section and Section 101 shall be reviewed in accordance with the procedural requirements specified in Sections 401 through 408 of District Rule 207, TITLE V FEDERAL OPERATING PERMIT PROGRAM, and Sections 70.6(a) through 70.6(g), 70.7(a), and 70.7(b), Part 70, Title 40, Code of Federal Regulations (40 CFR).

405 PRELIMINARY DECISION: Except as provided in Section 112, following acceptance of an application as complete, the Air Pollution Control Officer shall perform the evaluations required to determine compliance with all applicable district, state and federal rules, regulations, or statutes and shall make a preliminary written decision as to whether an Authority to Construct should be approved, conditionally approved, or denied. The decision shall be supported by a succinct written analysis.

406 PUBLICATION AND PUBLIC COMMENT: Except as provided in Section 112, within ten calendar days following a preliminary decision pursuant to Section 300, Standards, of this rule, the Air Pollution Control Officer shall publish in at least one newspaper of general circulation in the District a notice stating the preliminary decision of the Air Pollution Control Officer, noting how pertinent information can be obtained, and inviting written public comment for a 30-day period following the date of publication. The notice shall include the time and place of any hearing that may be held, including a statement of procedure to request a hearing (unless a hearing has already been scheduled). The Air Pollution Control Officer shall give notice of any public hearing at least 30 days in advance of the hearing.

407 PUBLIC INSPECTION: Except as provided in Section 112, the Air Pollution Control Officer shall make available for public inspection at the District's office the information submitted by the applicant and the Air Pollution Control Officer's analysis no later than the date the notice of the preliminary decision is published, pursuant to Section 406. All such information shall be transmitted no later than the date of publication to the California Air Resources Board and the US Environmental Protection Agency regional office, and to any party which requests such information. Information submitted which contains trade secrets shall be handled in accordance with Section 6254.7 of the California Government Code and relevant sections of the California Administrative Code.
