(Adopted May 6, 1977)(Amended April 4, 1980)

RULE 705. TERMINATION OF EPISODES

(a) An attained episode shall be terminated whenever the air contaminant which caused the attainment of such episode has been verified by the Executive Officer to be below the episode criteria set forth in Rule 703 for the calling of such episode and the available scientific and meteorological data indicate that the concentration of such air contaminant will not immediately increase again so as to reach the standards set forth for such an episode in Rule 703.

When an attained episode is terminated but an episode is predicted for the next day, affected organizations with stationary source curtailment plans will be required to continue abatement actions between successive episodes.

(b) A predicted episode shall be terminated whenever the available scientific and meteorological data indicate that it is no longer likely that the air contaminant(s) that caused the prediction of the episode will reach or exceed the criteria set forth in Rule 703.

(c) The Executive Officer shall immediately communicate the termination of the episode in the manner provided in Rule 706.
