RULE 8010 - FUGITIVE DUST ADMINISTRATIVE REQUIREMENTS FOR CONTROL OF FINE PARTICULATE MATTER (PM-10)



(Adopted October 21, 1993; Amended September 14, 1994; Amended April 25, 1996)


1.0 Purpose

The purpose of Regulation VIII is to reduce the amount of fine particulate matter (PM-10) entrained in the ambient air as a result of emissions generated from anthropogenic (man-made) fugitive dust sources by requiring actions to prevent, reduce, or mitigate PM-10 emissions. The Rules contained in this regulation are required to reduce PM-10 emissions which violate the National Ambient Air Quality Standards for PM-10 and implement control measures contained in the District PM-10 Nonattainment Area State Implementation Plan.

The Rules contained in this Regulation have been developed pursuant to United States Environmental Protection Agency guidance for Moderate Nonattainment Areas. The Rules are applicable to specified man-made fugitive dust sources. Fugitive dust emissions are used as an indicator of PM-10 emissions. Fugitive dust contains PM-10 and particles larger than PM-10. Controlling fugitive dust emissions when visible emissions are detected will not prevent all PM-10 emissions, but will substantially reduce emissions.

2.0 Applicability

The provisions of this Regulation are applicable to specified outdoor anthropogenic sources of PM-10. The definitions, exemptions, requirements, administrative requirements, and fees set forth in Rule 8010 are applicable to all Rules in Regulation VIII of the Rules and Regulations of the San Joaquin Valley Unified Air Pollution Control District.
