              101  PURPOSE:  To  reduce  air  pollutants which may reach or
                   have reached levels harmful  to  health,  and to protect
                   the  population at risk.  This rule establishes  control
                   and advisory  procedures when specified pollutant levels
                   have been reached, or are predicted to be reached by the
                   Air Pollution Control Officer.

                   may  request  the  Chairperson  of  the  California  Air
                   Resources  Board  to  confer  with  the  director of the
                   California Office of Emergency Services and jointly they
                   may  recommend  to  the  Governor that an air  pollution
                   disaster (State of Emergency) be declared.

              402  TERMINATION OF AN EPISODE  STAGE:    The  Air  Pollution
                   Control  Officer  shall  declare  an  episode  stage  as
                   terminated  when  the  concentration  of  a  episode air
                   pollutant falls below the level shown in Table 1 of this
                   rule, and when meteorological data indicate the  episode
                   air pollutant concentration is expected to decrease to a
                   lower pollutant threshold level.

              403  NOTIFICATION  OF TERMINATION OF AN EPISODE STAGE:   Upon
                   declaration of  termination of an episode stage, the Air
                   Pollution Control Officer shall notify those persons and
                   offices specified  in  Section  306  of this rule.  Such
                   notice  shall  also advise which  episode  stage  is  in
                   effect, if any, as specified in Section 308 herein.

              404  INTERDISTRICT COORDINATION:   Should  the  Air Pollution
                   Control Officer of a district adjacent to the Sacramento
                   District  declare a stage 1, 2 or 3 episode within  that
                   district  and  request  assistance,  the  Air  Pollution
                   Control  Officer  of  the  Sacramento  Metropolitan  Air
                   Quality Management District may take action to:
                   404.1   Make  a  determination as to the significance of
                           sources within  the  District  upon the adjacent
                           district,  or the impact of the significance  of
                           sources within  the  adjacent  district upon the
                           District.  After such determination and the need
                           for  action  is  confirmed,  the  Air  Pollution
                           Control Officer may implement such  notification
                           and control measures as described in  this rule,
                           as  if  such  episode  level  has  been measured
                           within the District;
                   404.2   Notify  the  requesting  adjacent  air pollution
                           control district of the actions being  taken  to
                           reduce pollutants affecting the declared stage.

          500 MONITORING AND RECORDS

              501  TEST  METHODS:  The concentration of an air pollutant is
                   measured  by ambient air monitoring.  The level of ozone
                   is measured  by  ARB  Method  14,  the  level  of carbon
                   monoxide is measured by ARB Method 11, and the level  of
                   PM10 is measured by ARB Method 71.
