          SUBPART O    - Standards of Performance for Sewage Treatment
                         Plants  (Delegation Effective 9/17/87)


               RULE 260.150.  APPLICABILITY AND DESIGNATION OF AFFECTED
                              FACILITY

               (a)  The affected facility is each incinerator that combusts
          wastes containing more than 10 percent sewage sludge (dry basis)
          produced by municipal sewage treatment plants, or each incin-
          erator that charges more than 1000 kg (2205 lb) per day municipal
          sewage sludge (dry basis)

               (b)  Any facility under Section (a) of this rule that
          commences construction or modification after June 11, 1973, is
          subject to the requirements of this subpart.


               RULE 260.151.  DEFINITIONS

               As used in this subpart, all terms not defined herein shall
          have the meaning given them in the Act and in Subpart A of this
          Regulation.


               RULE 260.152.  STANDARD FOR PRATICULATE MATTER

               (a)  On and after the date on which the performance test
          required to be conducted by Rule 206.8 is completed, no owner or
          operator of any sewage sludge incinerator subject to the provi-
          sions of this subpart shall discharge or cause the discharge into
          the atmosphere of:

                    (1)  Particulate matter at a rate in excess of 0.65
               g/kg dry sludge input (1.30 lb/ton dry sludge input).

                    (2)  Any gases which exhibit 20 percent opacity or
               greater.


               RULE 260.153.  MONITORING OF OPERATIONS

               (a)  The owner or operator of any sludge incinerator subject
          to the provisions of this subpart shall:

                    (1)  Install, calibrate, maintain, and operate a flow
               measuring device which can be used to determine either the
               mass or volume of sludge charged to the incinerator.  The
               flow measuring device shall have an accuracy of +5 percent
               over its operating range.

                    (2)  Provide access to the sludge charged so that a
               well-mixed representative grab sample of the sludge can be
               obtained.

                    (3)  Install, calibrate, maintain, and operate a
               weighing device for determining the mass of any municipal
               solid waste charged to the incinerator when sewage sludge
               and municipal solid waste are incinerated together.  The
               weighing device shall have an accuracy of +5 percent over
               its operating range.


               RULE 260.154.  TEST METHODS OF PROCEDURES

               Tests shall be conducted as specified in Part 60, Title 40,
          Code of Federal Regulations, Section 60.154.
