(F) any SOx source or process unit elected by the Facility Permit holder or required by the Executive Officer or designee to be monitored with a CEMS or equivalent monitoring device;

(G) any SOx source or process unit for which SOx emissions reported pursuant to Rule 301 - Permit Fees, were equal to or greater than 10 tons per year for any calendar year between 1987 to 1991, inclusive, excluding any SOx source or process unit which has reduced SOxemissions to below 10 tons per year prior to January 1, 1994.

  1. The Facility Permit holder of a major SOx source shall:

(A) install, maintain, and operate a direct monitoring device for each major SOx source to continuously measure the concentration of SOx emissions or fuel sulfur content and all other applicable variables specified in Table 2011-1 and Appendix A, Chapter 2, Table 2-A; or

(B) install, maintain, and operate an alternative monitoring device which has been determined by the Executive Officer or designee to be equivalent to CEMS in relative accuracy, reliability, reproducibility and timeliness according to the requirements set forth in Appendix A, Chapter 2.

(C) The operating requirements specified in subparagraph (c)(2)(A) or (c)(2)(B) shall not apply during any time period not to exceed 96 hours provided that all of the following are met:

(i) the Facility Permit holder reports emissions as specified in Appendix A;

(ii) the direct monitoring device has been either:

(I) shut down for maintenance performed pursuant to the facility's Quality Assurance and Quality Control Program or

(II) damaged in a fire or mechanical or electrical failure caused by circumstances beyond the Facility Permit holder's control; and

(iii) Whenever the monitoring device is non-operational for more than 24 hours, the Facility Permit holder shall submit a report to the Executive Officer within 96 hours after the device becomes non-operational. Such report shall include information as prescribed by the Executive Officer including at a minimum the cause of the shutdown, the time the monitoring device became non-operational, the time or estimated time the monitoring device returned to normal operation, and the maintenance performed or corrective and preventative actions taken to prevent future non-operational conditions.

  1. The Facility Permit holder of a major SOx source shall:

(A) install, maintain, and operate a reporting device to electronically report to the District Central SOx Station for each major SOxsource: total daily mass emissions of SOx and daily status codes. Such data shall be transmitted by 5:00 p.m. of the following day. If the facility experiences a power, computer, or other system failure that prevents the reporting of total daily mass emissions of SOx and daily status codes, the Facility Permit holder shall be granted 12 hours to submit the required report. Between July 1, 1995 and December 31, 1995, SOx emissions after the 12-hour extension, shall be calculated using interim reporting procedures set forth in Appendix A, Chapter 2. Starting January 1, 1996 and thereafter, SOx emissions after the 12-hour extension shall be calculated pursuant to the missing data requirements set forth in Appendix A, Chapter 2; and

(B) submit Monthly Emissions Report aggregating SOx emissions from all major sources within 10 days following the end of each calendar month. In its Monthly Emissions Report, the Facility Permit holder may correct daily transmitted data for that month, provided such corrections are clearly identified and justified.

  1. Super Compliant Facilities

(A) Facilities operating at or below their adjusted 2003 Allocation as of their 1994 compliance year.

(i) The Facility Permit holder of major SOx sources may reclassify its major SOx sources to SOx process units provided that (1) the facility's annual SOx emissions as properly reported in its 1994 compliance year APEP report are already at or below the level of its adjusted compliance year 2003 SOx Allocation. The adjusted compliance year 2003 SOx Allocation shall be the compliance year 2003 SOx Allocation as calculated pursuant to Rule 2002 subdivision (e) plus any compliance year 2003 SOx RTCs resulting from conversion of ERCs which the Facility Permit holder had applied to own by July 1, 1994 and has continuously owned, unless such RTCs have already been accounted for in the compliance year 2003 Allocation as established pursuant to Rule 2002 subdivision (e); and (2) it submits a complete application for SOx Super Compliance status on or before December 2, 1996. The Executive Officer will provisionally approve for purposes of paragraph (c)(5) such application if the Facility Permit holder has retired all SOx RTCs in excess of the facility's adjusted compliance year 2003 Allocation for each of the compliance years from the year of application submittal through the 2010 compliance year. The Facility Permit holder need not retire any RTCs (excluding converted ERCs) which are held by transfer pursuant to Rule 2007 paragraph (e)(2); however, such non-retired RTCs must be converted into RTC certificates pursuant to Rule 2007 subdivision (g), transferred to a different holder, or retired. For the purposes of this rule, converted ERCs shall mean SOxRTCs resulting from conversion of ERCs which the Facility Permit holder had applied to own by July 1, 1994 and has continuously owned.

(ii) Final approval of SOx Super Compliant status shall be granted if the Executive Officer or designee approves the initial source test required by subparagraph (c)(4)(C) and the facility's total annual SOx emissions has not exceeded its adjusted compliance year 2003 Allocation.

(B) Facilities not operating at or below their adjusted 2003 Allocation as of their 1994 compliance year.

(i) On or before December 2, 1996 the facility Permit holder of major SOx sources may submit a complete application for SOx Super Compliant status. Such applications must also include a complete application for permit modifications to install SOx emission reduction equipment or to make any other physical modifications to substantially reduce emissions from each major SOx source to be reclassified as a SOx process unit. The Executive Officer shall deny the application for Super Compliant status unless the applicant demonstrates the proposed modifications would comply with all applicable District rules and would permanently reduce the facility's total annual SOx emissions to a level not to exceed its adjusted compliance year 2003 SOx Allocation as defined in clause (c)(4)(A)(i), would not result in any increases in the mass emissions of any other air contaminant or in emissions to any other media, and would not result in any increases in receptor concentrations of any air contaminant in excess of the values identified in Table A-2 of Rule 1303;

(ii) Upon issuance of the permit to construct for the modification specified in clause (c)(4)(B)(i), the Executive Officer shall also issue a provisional approval of the facility's application for SOx Super Compliant status for purposes of paragraph (c)(5).

(iii) Final approval of SOx Super Compliant status shall be granted if the following provisions are met:

(I) An approved permit to operate has been issued for the modification specified in clause (c)(4)(B)(i);

(II) The facility's total annual SOx emissions as reported in its APEP report are at a level at or below the facility's adjusted compliance year 2003 SOx Allocation on a permanent basis no later than the facility's 1998 compliance year;

(III) The Facility Permit holder has retired all SOx RTCs in excess of the facility's adjusted compliance year 2003 Allocation for each of the compliance years from the earlier of the facility's 1998 compliance year or the facility's first full compliance year with SOx Super Compliant Facility status through the facility's 2010 compliance year. The Facility Permit holder need not retire any RTCs (excluding converted ERCs as defined in clause (c)(4)(A)(i) which are held by transfer pursuant to Rule 2007 paragraph (e)(2); however, such non-retired RTCs must be converted into RTC certificates pursuant to Rule 2007 subdivision (g), transferred to a different holder, or retired; and

(IV) The facility Permit holder has an approved initial source test as required under subparagraph (c)(4)(C).

(C) The Facility Permit holder shall have initial source tests conducted to establish an alternative emission factor, for each major source to be reclassified as a SOx process unit, pursuant to Appendix A, Chapter 4, Subdivision E prior to January 1, 1998 for Cycle 1 facilities and prior to July 1, 1998 for Cycle 2 facilities.

(D) Requirements to maintain Super Compliant status.

Super Compliant status is contingent upon the Facility Permit holder meeting at all times the following provisions:

(i) Every major SOx source at a Super Compliant SOx facility which is reclassified as a SOx process unit shall be source tested a minimum of once every twelve months in order to establish an alternative emission factor, pursuant to Appendix A, Chapter 4, Subdivision E. These source tests shall be conducted every four calendar quarters after the initial source test. If a source test is not conducted within three months after the required date, the facility shall no longer be considered Super Compliant, unless upon good cause the Executive Officer has granted a written extension of time. The source test results shall, upon approval, constitute the basis for assigning alternative emission factors which shall be used for purposes of reporting emissions and determining compliance.

(ii) The facility's total annual SOx emissions, as reported in its APEP report, shall not exceed the facility's adjusted compliance year 2003 SOx Allocation. If there are such exceedances for two consecutive years or in any three years, the facility shall no longer be considered Super Compliant.

  1. Any Facility Permit holder of a facility which is provisionally approved for SOx Super Compliant status shall have the option for each major SOx source to be reclassified as a SOx process unit, in lieu of following the procedures specified in clauses E(1)(d)(i), E(1)(d)(ii), and E(1)(d)(iii) of Appendix A Chapter 2, to monitor and report emissions pursuant to paragraph (d)(2). This option shall be available to the Facility Permit holder retroactively from July 1, 1995 if the complete application for SOx Super Compliant status is submitted on or before January 2, 1996, or retroactively from the date of application submittal if the complete application is submitted after January 2 and before December 3, 1996. If the facility is unsuccessful at obtaining final approval as a SOx Super Compliant Facility then the procedures specified in clauses E(1)(d)(i), E(1)(d)(ii), and E(1)(d)(iii) of Appendix A Chapter 2 shall apply retroactively to each major SOx source reclassified as a process unit for which SOx emissions had been calculated pursuant to paragraph (d)(2) from the date the facility began monitoring and reporting major SOx source emissions as SOx process unit emissions to the date a CEMS is installed and certified.


  2. After final approval of Super Compliant status, a Facility Permit holder may elect to discontinue its Super Compliant status and increase its annual Allocations above the level of its adjusted compliance year 2003 Allocation provided it first meets all of the following requirements:

(A) The Facility Permit holder submits an application to discontinue SOx Super Compliant status and to have all sources at the facility that were reclassified from major SOx sources to SOx process units pursuant to paragraph (c)(4) permanently revert back to major SOx sources;

(B) The Facility Permit holder installs, operates, and certifies in compliance with Rule 2012 paragraphs (c)(2) and (c)(3) monitoring and reporting systems on each source at the facility that was reclassified from a major SOx source to a SOx process unit pursuant to paragraph (c)(4); and

(C) The Facility Permit holder acquires, pursuant to Rule 2007, sufficient RTCs to ensure that the facility continuously operates in compliance with Rule 2004 subdivision (d).

  1. If a facility designated as a SOx Super Compliant Facility pursuant to paragraph (c)(4) exceeds its adjusted compliance year 2003 SOx Allocation, then the facility shall acquire, pursuant to Rule 2007, sufficient RTCs to cover such exceedance and shall be considered in violation of Rule 2004(d)(1).


  2. If the Executive Officer determines that a facility designated as a SOx Super Compliant Facility exceeds its adjusted compliance year 2003 SOx Allocation for two consecutive years or any three years, then that facility shall no longer be considered Super Compliant. If a facility loses its Super Compliant status pursuant to this paragraph or subparagraph (c)(4)(D), all sources at the facility that were reclassified from major SOx sources to SOxprocess units pursuant to paragraph (c)(4) shall permanently revert back to major SOx sources and shall become subject to the monitoring and reporting requirements of paragraphs (c)(2) and (c)(3) according to the following schedule:

(A) Within 1 month from the end of the compliance year, submit a monitoring, reporting, and recordkeeping plan specifying the use of CEMS;

(B) During the shorter of the first twelve months from the end of the compliance year or until the facility complies with paragraphs (c)(2) and (c)(3), the Facility Permit holder shall comply with the monitoring requirements of paragraph (f)(3) of this rule; and

                      emissions of SOx and daily status codes.  Such
data 
                      shall be transmitted by 5:00 p.m. of the
following 
                      day.  If the facility experiences a power,
computer, 
                      or other system failure that prevents the
reporting of
                      total daily mass emissions of SOx and daily
status 
                      codes, the Facility Permit holder shall be
granted 
                      12 hours to submit the required report.  Between

                      July 1, 1995 and December 31, 1995, SOx
emissions 
                      after the 12-hour extension, shall be calculated
using
                      interim reporting procedures set forth in
Appendix A, 
                      Chapter 2.  Starting January 1, 1996 and
thereafter, 
                      SOx emissions after the 12-hour extension shall
be 
                      calculated pursuant to the missing data
requirements 
                      set forth in Appendix A, Chapter 2; and

                  (B) submit Monthly Emissions Report aggregating SOx
                      emissions from all major sources within 10 days 
                      following the end of each calendar month.  In
its 
                      Monthly Emissions Report, the Facility Permit
holder 
                      may correct daily transmitted data for that
month, 
                      provided such corrections are clearly identified
and
                      justified.

              (4) Super Compliant Facilities

                  (A) Facilities operating at or below their adjusted
2003
                      Allocation as of their 1994 compliance year.

                      (i)  The Facility Permit holder of major SOx
sources 
                           may reclassify its major SOx sources to SOx

                           process units provided that (1) the
facility's 
                           annual SOx emissions as properly reported
in its 
                           1994 compliance year APEP report are
already at 
                           or below the level of its adjusted
compliance 
                           year 2003 SOx Allocation.  The adjusted 
                           compliance year 2003 SOx Allocation shall
be the 
                           compliance year 2003 SOx Allocation as
calculated 
                           pursuant to Rule 2002(e) plus any
compliance 
                           year 2003 SOx RTCs resulting from
conversion of 
                           ERCs which the Facility Permit holder had
applied 
                           to own by July 1, 1994 and has continuously
owned, 
                           unless such RTCs have already been
accounted for 
                           in the compliance year 2003 Allocation as 
                           established pursuant to Rule 2002(e); and
(2) it 
                           submits a complete application for SOx
Super 
                           Compliance status on or before December 2,
1996.  
                           The Executive Officer will provisionally
approve 
                           for purposes of paragraph (c)(5) such
application 
                           if the Facility Permit holder has retired
all SOx
                           RTCs in excess of the facility's adjusted 
                           compliance year 2003 Allocation for each of
the 
                           compliance years from the year of
application 
                           submittal through the 2010 compliance year. 
The
                           Facility Permit holder need not retire any
RTCs 
                           (excluding converted ERCs) which are held
by 
                           transfer pursuant to Rule 2007 (e)(2);
however, 
                           such non-retired RTCs must be converted
into RTC
                           certificates pursuant to Rule 2007 (g), 
                           transferred to a different holder, or
retired.  
                           For the purposes of this rule, converted
ERCs 
                           shall mean SOx RTCs resulting from
conversion of
                           ERCs which the Facility Permit holder had
applied 
                           to own by July 1, 1994 and has continuously
owned.

                      (ii) Final approval of SOx Super Compliant
status 
                           shall be granted if the Executive Officer
or 
                           designee approves the initial source test 
                           required by subparagraph (c)(4)(C) and the
                           facility's total annual SOx emissions has
not 
                           exceeded its adjusted compliance year 2003 
                           Allocation.

                  (B) Facilities not operating at or below their
adjusted 
                      2003 Allocation as of their 1994 compliance
year.

                      (i)   On or before December 2, 1996 the facility

                            Permit holder of major SOx sources may
submit a 
                            complete application for SOx Super
Compliant 
                            status.  Such applications must also
include a 
                            complete application for permit
modifications to 
                            install SOx emission reduction equipment
on the 
                            SOx sources and/or to make any other
physical 
                            modifications to SOx emitting equipment. 
The
                            Executive Officer shall deny the
application 
                            for Super Compliant status unless the
applicant 
                            demonstrates the proposed modifications
would 
                            comply with all applicable District rules
and
                            would permanently reduce the facility's
total 
                            annual SOx emissions to a level not to
exceed 
                            its adjusted compliance year 2003 SOx
Allocation 
                            as defined in clause (c)(4)(A)(i), would
not 
                            result in any increases in the mass
emissions of 
                            any other air contaminant or in emissions
to any 
                            other media, and would not result in any 
                            increases in receptor concentrations of
any air
                            contaminant in excess of the values
identified 
                            in Table A-2 of Rule 1303;

                       (ii) Upon issuance of the permit to construct
for the
                            modification specified in clause
(c)(4)(B)(i), 
                            the Executive Officer shall also issue a 
                            provisional approval of the facility's 
                            application for SOx Super Compliant status
for 
                            purposes of paragraph (c)(5).

                      (iii) Final approval of SOx Super Compliant
status 
                            shall be granted if the following
provisions are 
                            met:

                            (I)   An approved permit to operate has
been 
                                  issued for the modification
specified in 
                                  clause (c)(4)(B)(i);

                            (II)  The facility's total annual SOx
emissions 
                                  as reported in its APEP report are
at a 
                                  level at or below the facility's
adjusted 
                                  compliance year 2003 SOx Allocation
on a
                                  permanent basis no later than the 
                                  facility's 1998 compliance year;

                            (III) The Facility Permit holder has
retired all 
                                  SOx RTCs in excess of the facility's

                                  adjusted compliance year 2003
Allocation 
                                  for each of the compliance years
from the 
                                  earlier of the facility's 1998
compliance 
                                  year or the facility's first full 
                                  compliance year with SOx Super
Compliant 
                                  Facility status through the
facility's 
                                  2010 compliance year.  The Facility
Permit 
                                  holder need not retire any RTCs
(excluding 
                                  converted ERCs as defined in 
                                  clause (c)(4)(A)(i)) which are held
by 
                                  transfer pursuant to Rule 2007
(e)(2); 
                                  however, such non-retired RTCs must
be 
                                  converted into RTC certificates
pursuant to 
                                  Rule 2007 (g), transferred to a
different 
                                  holder, or retired; and

                            (IV)  The facility Permit holder has an
approved
                                  initial source test as required
under 
                                  subparagraph (c)(4)(C).

                  (C) The Facility Permit holder shall have initial
source
                      tests to establish an alternative emission
factor, for 
                      each major source to be reclassified as a SOx
process 
                      unit and, if applicable, for any SOx process
unit 
                      included in the application specified in 
                      clause (c)(4)(B)(i) conducted pursuant to
Appendix A, 
                      Chapter 4, Subdivision E prior to January 1,
1998 for 
                      Cycle 1 facilities and prior to July 1, 1998 for

                      Cycle 2 facilities.

                  (D) Requirements to maintain Super Compliant status

                      Super Compliant status is contingent upon the
Facility
                      Permit holder meeting at all times the following

                      provisions:

                      (i)  Every major SOx source at a Super Compliant
SOx
                           facility which is reclassified as a SOx
process 
                           unit shall be source tested a minimum of
once 
                           every twelve months in order to establish
an 
                           alternative emission factor, pursuant to 
                           Appendix A, Chapter 4, Subdivision E. 
These 
                           source tests shall be conducted every 
                           four calendar quarters after the initial
source 
                           test.  If a source test is not conducted
within 
                           three months after the required date, the 
                           facility shall no longer be considered
Super
                           Compliant, unless upon good cause the
Executive 
                           Officer has granted a written extension of
time.  
                           The source test results shall, upon
approval, 
                           constitute the basis for assigning
alternative 
                           emission factors which shall be used for 
                           purposes of reporting emissions and
determining 
                           compliance.

                      (ii) The facility's total annual SOx emissions,
as
                           reported in its APEP report, shall not
exceed the 
                           facility's adjusted compliance year 2003
SOx 
                           Allocation.  If there are such exceedances
for 
                           two consecutive years or in any three
years, the
                           facility shall no longer be considered
Super 
                           Compliant.

              (5) Any Facility Permit holder of a facility which is
                  provisionally approved for SOx Super Compliant
status 
                  shall have the option of, in lieu of following the 
                  procedures specified in clauses E(1)(d)(i),
E(1)(d)(ii), 
                  and E(1)(d)(iii) of Appendix A Chapter 2, monitoring
and 
                  reporting emissions pursuant to paragraph (d)(2). 
This 
                  option shall be available to the Facility Permit
holder 
                  retroactively from July 1, 1995 if the complete
                  application for SOx Super Compliant status is
submitted on 
                  or before January 2, 1996, or retroactively from the
date 
                  of application submittal if the complete application
is 
                  submitted after January 2 and before December 3,
1996.  If 
                  the facility is unsuccessful at obtaining final
approval 
                  as a SOx Super Compliant Facility then the
procedures 
                  specified in clauses E(1)(d)(i), E(1)(d)(ii), and 
                  E(1)(d)(iii) of Appendix A Chapter 2 shall apply
                  retroactively to each major source which had been
for 
                  which SOx emissions had been calculated pursuant to
this 
                  paragraph (c)(5) from the date the facility began 
                  monitoring and reporting major SOx source emissions
as 
                  SOx process unit emissions to the date a CEMS is
installed 
                  and certified.

              (6) After final approval of Super Compliant status, a
Facility
                  Permit holder may elect to discontinue its Super
Compliant 
                  status and increase its annual Allocations above the
level 
                  of its adjusted compliance year 2003 Allocation
provided 
                  it first meets all of the following requirements:

                  (1) The Facility Permit holder submits an
application to
                      discontinue SOx Super Compliant status and to
have all 
                      sources at the facility changed from major SOx
sources 
                      to SOx process units pursuant to paragraph
(c)(4) 
                      permanently reclassified as major SOx sources;

                  (2) The Facility Permit holder installs, operates,
and
                      certifies in compliance with 2011(c)(2) and
2011(c)(3) 
                      monitoring and reporting systems on each source
at the 
                      facility changed from a major SOx source to a
SOx 
                      process unit pursuant to paragraph (c)(4); and

                  (3) The Facility Permit holder acquires, pursuant to

                      Rule 2007, sufficient RTCs to ensure that the
facility 
                      continuously operates in compliance with Rule
2004(d).

          (d) SOx Process Unit

              (1) SOx process unit is any piece of SOx emitting
equipment
                  which is not a major SOx source or a piece of
equipment
                  designated in Rule 219 - Equipment Not Requiring a
Written 
                  Permit Pursuant to Regulation II.

              (2) The Facility Permit holder of a SOx process unit
shall
                  comply with paragraphs (c)(2) and (c)(3) for any SOx

                  process unit, or elect to comply with the following:

                  (A) install, maintain, and operate a totalizing fuel
meter
                      and/or timer, or any device approved by the
Executive 
                      Officer or designee to be equivalent in
accuracy, 
                      reliability, reproducibility and timeliness, for
the 
                      SOx process unit, to measure quarterly fuel
usage or 
                      other applicable measured variables specified in

                      Table 2011-1, and Appendix A, Chapter 3, Table
3-A; 
                      and

                  (B) report quarterly mass emission of SOx to the
District
                      Central Station for each process unit using a
modem or 
                      any reporting device approved by the Executive
Officer 
                      to be equivalent in accuracy, reliability, and 
                      timeliness; and

                  (C) accept the emission factor as specified pursuant
to
                      paragraphs (d)(3), (d)(4), or (d)(5) in the
Facility 
                      Permit, as the sole method for determining mass 
                      emissions for all purposes, including, but not
limited 
                      to, determining:

                      (i)   compliance with the annual allocations;

                      (ii)  excess emissions;

                      (iii) the amount of penalties; and

                      (iv)  fees.

              (3) Starting January 1, 1994 for Cycle 1 facilities, and

                  July 1, 1994 for Cycle 2 facilities, calculations of
mass 
                  emissions from each process unit shall be based upon
the 
                  emission factor specified in Rule 2002 - Allocations
for 
                  Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) and Oxides of Sulfur (SOx). 
The 
                  emission factor for each process unit will be
specified in 
                  the Facility Permit and will remain valid unless
amended by 
                  the Executive Officer or designee pursuant to 
                  paragraphs (d)(4) or (d)(5).
             
              (4) A Facility Permit holder may apply to the Executive
Officer
                  or designee to amend the emission factor to an
alternative
                  emission factor in the Facility Permit for a SOx
process 
                  unit at any time.  If the applicant demonstrates to
the 
                  Executive Officer or designee that the alternative
emission 
                  factor is reliable, accurate, and representative for
the 
                  purpose of calculating SOx emissions, the Executive
Officer 
                  or designee will amend the Facility Permit to
incorporate 
                  the alternative emission factor.  The alternative
emission 
                  factor shall take effect prospectively from the date
the 
                  Facility Permit is amended.

              (5) The Executive Officer or designee may amend the
Facility
                  Permit at any time to specify an alternative
emission 
                  factor for a SOx process unit if the alternative
emission 
                  factor is determined to be more reliable, accurate,
or 
                  representative of that unit's emissions than the
previous 
                  emission factor stated in the Facility Permit.  The 
                  alternative emission factor shall take effect
prospectively 
                  from the date the Facility Permit is amended.

              (6) If a facility designated as a SOx Super Compliant
Facility
                  pursuant to paragraph (c)(4) exceeds its adjusted 
                  compliance year 2003 SOx Allocation, then the
facility 
                  shall acquire, pursuant to Rule 2007, sufficient
RTCs to 
                  cover such exceedance and shall be considered in
violation 
                  of Rule 2004(d)(1).

              (7) If the Executive Officer determines that a facility
                  designated as a SOx Super Compliant Facility exceeds
its 
                  adjusted compliance year 2003 SOx Allocation for 
                  two consecutive years or any three years, then that 
                  facility shall no longer be considered Super
Compliant.  
                  If a facility loses its Super Compliant status
pursuant 
                  to this paragraph or subparagraph (c)(4)(D), all
sources
                  at the facility changed from major SOx sources to
SOx 
                  process units pursuant to paragraph (c)(4) shall be 
                  permanently reclassified as major SOx sources and
shall 
                  become subject to the monitoring and reporting 
                  requirements of paragraphs (c)(2) and (c)(3)
