VENAPCD RULE 26.2 NEW SOURCE REVIEW - REQUIREMENTS

LAST REVISED 10/22/91

Rule 26.2. New Source Review - Requirements (Adopted 10/22/91)

A.Best Available Control Technology

1. The Air Pollution Control Officer (APCO) shall deny

an applicant an Authority to Construct for any new,

replacement, modified, or relocated emissions unit

which would have a potential to emit any of the

pollutants specified in Table A-1, unless the emissions

unit is equipped with the current Best Available

Control Technology for such pollutants.

Table A-1.

Reactive Organic Compounds (ROC)

Nitrogen Oxides (NOx)

Particulate Matter (PM10)

Sulfur Oxides (SOx)

2. The APCO shall deny an applicant an Authority to

Construct for any new, replacement, modified, or

relocated emissions unit with an emission increase of

any of the pollutants specified in Table A-2 and where

the potential to emit for all the new, replacement,

modified, and relocated emissions units at the

stationary source, which are covered by the application

for such Authority to Construct, would be greater than

or equal to the limits specified in Table A-2, unless

the emissions unit is equipped with the current Best

Available Control Technology for such pollutants.

Table A-2.

Carbon Monoxide 30.0 ton/yr

Lead 0.6 ton/yr

Asbestos 0.007 ton/yr

Beryllium 0.0004 ton/yr

Mercury 0.1 ton/yr

Vinyl Chloride 1.0 ton/yr

Fluorides 3.0 ton/yr

Sulfuric Acid Mist 7.0 ton/yr

Hydrogen Sulfide 10.0 ton/yr

Total Reduced Sulfur 10.0 ton/yr

Reduced Sulfur Compounds10.0 ton/yr

B. Offsets

1. The APCO shall deny an applicant an Authority to

Construct for any new, replacement, modified or

relocated emissions unit which would have a potential

to emit either ROC or NOx, unless offsets are provided

for any emission increases of such pollutants from the

new, replaced, modified, or relocated emissions unit.

2. The APCO shall deny an applicant an Authority to

Construct for any new, replacement, modified or

relocated emissions unit with an emission increase of

any of the pollutants specified in Table B-1 and where

the potential to emit of the stationary source would be

greater than or equal to the limits specified in Table

B-1, unless offsets are provided for any emission

increases of such pollutants from the new, replaced,

modified, or relocated emissions unit.

Table B-1.

PM10 15.0 ton/yr

SOx 15.0 ton/yr

3. An applicant who is not eligible to obtain credits

from the community bank shall use emission reduction

credits to provide offsets. The use of emission

reduction credits to offset an emission increase shall

be restricted to only those emission reduction credits

which are not subject to reduction pursuant to Rules

26.4.D.1 or 26.4.D.2 during the reasonably expected

duration of such emission increase.

a. For any stationary source where the potential to

emit would be equal to or greater than the limits

specified in Table B-2, offsets for ROC and NOx

shall be provided at the tradeoff ratio specified

in Appendix A, multiplied by a factor of 1.1.

b. For any stationary source where the potential to

emit would be less than the limits specified in

Table B-2, offsets for ROC and NOx shall be

provided at the tradeoff ratio specified in

Appendix A.

c. Offsets for PM10 and SOx shall be provided at

the tradeoff ratio specified in Appendix A,

multiplied by a factor of 1.1.

Table B-2.

ROC 25.0 ton/yr

NOx 25.0 ton/yr

4. An applicant who is eligible to obtain credits from

the community bank may use such credits to provide

offsets. Offsets for ROC and NOx shall be provided at

the tradeoff ratio of 1.0. If no credits are available

from the community bank pursuant to the provisions of

Rule 26.5, the applicant shall provide offsets using

emission reduction credits at a tradeoff ratio of 1.0.

5. For any applicant who is using emission reduction

credits to provide offsets, the quarterly profile of

the emission reduction credits and the quarterly

profile of the emission increase for which the

applicant is proposing to utilize the emission

reduction credits as offsets shall satisfy the profile

check for offsets as calculated pursuant to Rule

26.6.F.

6. An applicant for a new, replacement, modified or

relocated emissions unit in one of the following

categories shall be exempt from providing offsets:

a. Gasoline dispensing facilities which dispense

gasoline into the fuel tanks of motor vehicles or

marine pleasure craft.

b. Dry cleaning facilities which use only

perchloroethylene or chlorofluorocarbons.

For the categories listed above, the APCO shall

evaluate the total annual permitted emissions from each

category, as of July 1, 1991. Thereafter, the APCO

shall perform this evaluation on an annual basis during

the month of July. In these evaluations, the total

annual permitted emissions for each category shall be

adjusted to reflect the implementation of any District

rules. If the total annual permitted emissions from a

category has increased since the last evaluation,

community emission reduction credits shall be removed

from the community bank. The amount of community

emission reduction credits removed from the community

bank shall be equal to the increase in total annual

permitted emissions from such category since the last

evaluation. If the total annual permitted emissions

from a category has decreased since the last

evaluation, community emission reduction credits shall

be added to the community bank. The amount of

community emission reduction credits returned to the

community bank shall be equal to the decrease in total

annual permitted emissions from such category since the

last evaluation. Notwithstanding the previous two

sentences, the total amount of community emission

reduction credits returned to the community bank

pursuant to this subsection shall not exceed the total

amount of community emission reduction credits supplied

to a category since July 1, 1991. In no case shall any

emission reduction, which results from any facility

subject to this subsection, be eligible for banking

pursuant to Rule 26.4.

C. Protection of Ambient Air Quality Standards

The APCO shall deny an applicant an Authority to Construct

for any new, replacement, modified or relocated emissions

unit which would cause the violation of any ambient air

quality standard. In making this determination the APCO

shall take into account any offsets which were provided for

the purpose of mitigating the emission increase.

D. Certification of Statewide Compliance

The APCO shall deny an applicant an Authority to Construct

for any new, replacement, modified or relocated emissions

unit at a stationary source which would have a potential to

emit equal to or greater than the limits specified in Table

D-1, unless the applicant certifies that all stationary

sources located in California which have a potential to emit

of 100 tons per year of any pollutant, and which are owned

or operated by the applicant, or by any entity controlling,

controlled by, or under common control with such applicant,

are in compliance or on a schedule for compliance with all

applicable emission limitations and standards.

Table D-1.

NOx 25.0 ton/yr

ROC 25.0 ton/yr

PM-10 15.0 ton/yr

SOx 15.0 ton/yr

NOTE: At this point in the hard copy version of this rule, the

district has provided a one page table entitled "Distance

Ratios for Offsets" identifying the "location of emission

source" and associated location of offset." If you need

a copy of this table, please contact the district.



Appendix A

With the exception of the north zone of the District, south zone

of Santa Barbara County, San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara

Counties, and the outer continental shelf, all locations

presented in Appendix A are based on the growth and non-growth

areas of Ventura County. The growth and non-growth areas were

developed by the Countywide Planning Program Advisory Committee

and were approved by the Ventura County Board of Supervisors on

May 7, 1985. The locations that are not based on the growth and

non-growth areas are described as follows:

1. "North Zone of the District": as defined in Rule 7.

2. "South Zone of Santa Barbara County": as defined in Rule

26.1.

3. "Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties": San Luis

Obispo County and the portion of Santa Barbara County which

is not included in the south zone of Santa Barbara County.

4. "Outer Continental Shelf": as defined in Rule 26.1.
