                         Safety Orders of the State of California.
                   303.3 In acting upon a permit  to  operate,  if  the Air
                         Pollution  Control Officer finds that the article,
                         machine, equipment,  or other contrivance, the use
                         of   which   may  cause  the   issuance   of   air
                         contaminants or  the use of which may eliminate or
                         reduce   or   control    the   issuance   of   air
                         contaminants,   has   not  been   constructed   in
                         accordance  with the authority  to  construct,  he
                         shall  deny  the   permit   to  operate.  The  Air
                         Pollution  Control Officer shall  not  accept  any
                         further   application  for  permit  to operate the
                         article, machine, equipment, or other  contrivance
                         so  constructed  until  he finds that the article,
                         machine, equipment or other  contrivance  has been
                         reconstructed in accordance with the authority  to

                   303.4 The  Air Pollution Control Officer shall determine
                         that an  applicant  has  complied  with applicable
                         requirements  of  Health  and Safety Code  Section
                         42301.6,  preparation and distribution  of  public
                         notice, prior  to  approving an application for an

                   operate.
                   404.1 In the event said notification  is not received by
                         applicant  within  30  days of the filing  of  the
                         application,  or  within  30   days  of  providing
                         further information as required  by  Section  403,

               405 CONDITIONAL APPROVAL: The Air Pollution Control  Officer
                   may  issue  an  authority  to  construct  or a permit to
                   operate  subject  to  conditions  which  will bring  the
                   operation  of any article, machine, equipment  or  other
                   contrivance,  the use of which may cause the issuance of
                   air contaminants  or  the  use of which may eliminate or
                   reduce  or  control  the issuance  of  air  contaminants
                   within the standards of  Section  303  of  this  rule in
                   which case the conditions shall be specified in writing.
                   Commencing work under such an authority to construct  or
                   operation under such a permit to operate shall be deemed
                   acceptance  of  all the conditions so specified. The Air
                   Pollution Control  Officer  shall  issue an authority to
                   construct or a permit to operate with revised conditions
                   upon  receipt  of  a  new application if  the  applicant
                   demonstrates  that the article,  machine,  equipment  or
                   other contrivance,  the  use  of  which  may  cause  the
                   issuance  of  air  contaminants,  can operate within the
                   standards of Section 303 of this rule  under the revised
                   conditions.

               406 DENIAL  OF  APPLICATION:  In the event of denial  of  an
                   authority to construct or permit  to  operate,  the  Air
                   Pollution  Control Officer shall notify the applicant in
                   writing  of  the  reasons  therefore.  Service  of  this
                   notification may  be made in person or by mail, and such
                   service may be proved  by the written acknowledgement of
                   the persons served or affidavit of the person making the
                   service. The Air Pollution  Control  Officer  shall  not
                   accept  a  further  application unless the applicant has
                   complied  with  the  objections  specified  by  the  Air
                   Pollution Control Officer  as  his reasons for denial of
                   the authority to construct or the  permit to operate. If
                   the  Air Pollution Control Officer denies  a  permit  to
                   operate, then the authority to construct associated with
                   the permit to operate shall also be deemed denied.

               407 SUSPENSION:   The  Air  Pollution  Control  Officer  may
                   suspend a permit  if  a  holder of such permit willfully
                   fails  and  refuses  to furnish  information,  analyses,
                   plans, and specifications,  within a reasonable time, as
                   requested by the Air Pollution  Control Officer pursuant
                   to Health and Safety code Section  42303, District Rules
                   and  Regulations,  or  any other law, rule,  regulation,
                   agreement, or order enforceable  by  the  District.  The
                   Air  Pollution  Control  Officer shall serve notice,  in
                   writing, of such suspension  and  the reasons therefore.
                   The permit shall be reinstated when  furnished  with all
                   requested     information,    analyses,    plans,    and
                   specifications.

               408 APPEALS: Within  ten  days  after  notice,  by  the  Air
                   Pollution  Control  Officer,  of  suspension, denial, or
                   conditional  approval  of  an  authority  to  construct,
                   permit  to  operate,  or  emissions   reduction  credits

                   who participated in the permit issuance proceedings  may
                   petition  the  Hearing  Board,  in writing, for an order
                   modifying or reversing that decision.  The Hearing Board
                   after  notice  and  a public hearing held within  thirty
                   days after filing the  petition,  may sustain or reverse
                   the  action of the Air Pollution Control  Officer;  such
                   order may be made subject to specified conditions.
