Rule 2:14. Testing Facilities:

Before an Authority to Construct or a Permit to Operate is granted, the Air Pollution Control Officer (APCO) may require the applicant to provide and maintain such facilities as are necessary for sampling and testing purposes in order to secure information that will disclose the nature, extent, quantity, or degree of air contaminants discharged into the atmosphere from the article, machine, equipment, or other contrivance described in the Authority to Construct or Permit to Operate.

In the event of such a requirement, the APCO shall notify the applicant in writing of the required size, number, and location of sampling holes; the size and location of the sampling platform; the access to the sampling platform; and the utilities for operating the sampling and testing equipment. The platform and access shall be constructed in accordance with the General Industry Safety Orders of the State of California.

A person operating or using any article, machine, equipment, or other contrivance for which these rules require a permit shall provide and maintain such sampling and testing facilities as specified in the Authority to Construct or Permit to Operate.

Any permittee or applicant for a variance may request the APCO to obtain test or emission data at the expense of the requesting party. The cost of such services shall be the actual cost to the District (including general overhead) of performing such services.
