RULE 014.13.20-003. Rule No 19, Rules of the Arkansas Plan of Implementation for Air Pollution Control; Docket No. 20-002-R Miunte Order 20-13

CHAPTER 1: TITLE, INTENT, AND PURPOSE

Rule 19.101 Title

The following rules, adopted in accordance with the provisions of Subchapter 2 of the Arkansas Water and Air Pollution Control Act, Arkansas Code Annotated (Ark. Code Ann.) § 8-4-201et seq., shall be known as "Rules of the Arkansas Plan of Implementation of Air Pollution Control," hereinafter referred to as the "Rules of the Plan," and "Rule 19."

Rule 19.102 Applicability

These rules are applicable to any stationary source which has the potential to emit any federally regulated air pollutant.

Rule 19.103 Intent and Construction

(A) The purpose and intent of Rule 19, as amended, is to provide a clear delineation of those rules that are promulgated by the Commission in satisfaction of certain requirements of the federal Clean Air Act, 42 United States Code (U.S.C.) § 7401 et seq., as of July 1, 1997, and the federal regulations stemming therefrom. Federal programs that the Division is responsible for administering include, but are not limited to, the attainment and maintenance of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (40 Code of Federal Regulations [C.F.R.] Part 50), certain delegated subparts of the New Source Performance Standards (40 C.F.R. Part 60), provisions designed for the Prevention of Significant Deterioration (40 C.F.R. § 52.21), minor new source review as described in Chapter 4 (40 C.F.R. Part 51), and certain delegated subparts of the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (40 C.F.R. Parts 61 and 63) as of July 1, 1997. This subsection shall not be construed as limiting the future delegation of federal programs to the Division for administration.

(B) Rule 19, as amended, is further intended to limit the federal enforceability of its requirements to only those mandated by federal law. Rule 19, as amended, is also intended to facilitate a permit system for stationary sources within the State, which permit shall provide which provisions are federally enforceable and which provisions are state enforceable.

(C) Rule 19, as amended, presumes a single-permit system, encompassing both federal and state requirements. A regulated facility which is subject to permitting under Rule 19 shall be required to apply for and comply with only one permit, even though that permit may contain conditions derived from the federal mandates contained in Rule 19, as well as conditions predicated solely on state law. Rule 19, through construction or implication, shall not support the conclusion that all conditions of a permit have become federally enforceable because the permit contains provisions derived from Rule 19. Permits or permit conditions issued under the authority of state law, or enforcement issues arising out of state law, shall not be federally enforceable.

(D) To the extent consistent with state law and efficient protection of the State's air quality, Rule 19 shall be construed in a manner that promotes a streamlined permitting process, mitigation of regulatory costs, and flexibility in maintaining compliance with federal mandates. Any applicable documents (e.g. "White Papers," regulatory preambles, or interpretive memoranda) issued by the EPA which are consistent with this policy and the legislative intent of state laws governing air pollution control (Ark. Code Ann. § 8-4-301et seq.) are aids for construing the requirements of Rule 19. Any procedure applicable to major sources that promotes operational flexibility are presumed to be authorized by this rule unless manifestly inconsistent with its substantive terms.

(E) Nothing in Rule 19 shall be construed as curtailing the Division's or Commission's authority under state law.

Rule 19.104 Severability

If any provision of Rule 19 is determined to be invalid, such invalidity shall not affect other provisions of Rule 19.

If federal legislation or a federal court stays, invalidates, delays the effective date of, or otherwise renders unenforceable, in whole or in part, EPA's regulation of greenhouse gases, then the provisions of Rule 19 concerning greenhouse gases based thereon shall be stayed and shall not be enforceable until such time as the Commission makes a final decision on whether or not to revise Rule 19 due to the federal legislation or federal court order.

CHAPTER 3: PROTECTION OF THE NATIONAL AMBIENT AIR QUALITY STANDARDS

Rule 19.301 Purpose

The purpose of this chapter is to state the responsibilities of the Division and regulated sources in meeting and maintaining the NAAQS. If any area of the state is determined to be in violation of the NAAQS, all applicable requirements contained in the Clean Air Act, as amended, and all regulations promulgated thereto shall be met by the Division.

Rule 19.302 Division Responsibilities

The Division shall be responsible for taking the following precautions to prevent the NAAQS from being exceeded:

(A) Ambient air monitoring in any area that can reasonably be expected to be in excess of the NAAQS.

(B) Computer modeling of regulated air pollutant emissions for any area that can reasonably be expected to be in excess of the NAAQS, and review of the ambient air impacts of any new or modified source of federally regulated air emission that is the subject of the requirements of this Plan. All computer modeling shall be performed using EPA-approved models, and using averaging times commensurate with averaging times stated in the NAAQS.

Rule 19.303 Regulated Sources Responsibilities

Any source subject to the provisions of this Plan shall be responsible for taking the following precautions to prevent the NAAQS from being exceeded:

(A) When required by law or this rule, obtaining a permit from the Division prior to construction of a new source of federally regulated air pollutant emissions or prior to the modification of an existing source of air emissions.

(B) Operating equipment in such a manner as to meet any applicable permit requirement or any applicable rules.

(C) Repairing malfunctioning equipment and pollution control equipment as quickly as possible. If the malfunctioning equipment is causing, or contributing to, a violation of the NAAQS, as determined by computer modeling, the source is responsible for ceasing operations of the affected equipment until such time that it is repaired.

Rule 19.304 Delegated Federal Programs

Sources subject to this rule shall also comply with all Federal programs that the Division is responsible for administering including certain delegated subparts of the New Source Performance Standards (40 C.F.R. Part 60), provisions designed for the Prevention of Significant Deterioration (40 C.F.R. § 52.21), and certain delegated subparts of the National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (40 C.F.R. Parts 61 and 63), which were promulgated as of January 27, 2006. These delegated subparts only apply to major sources. (There are subparts that apply to minor sources, but the Division has not requested delegation of them as of April 28, 2006.)

CHAPTER 4: MINOR SOURCE REVIEW

Rule 19.401 General Applicability

No person shall cause or permit the operation, construction, or modification of a stationary source, whose actual emissions are:

Seventy-five (75) tons per year or more of carbon monoxide;

Forty (40) tons per year or more of nitrogen oxides;

Forty (40) tons per year or more of sulfur dioxide;

Forty (40) tons per year or more of volatile organic compounds;

Ten (10) tons per year or more of direct PM2.5;

Fifteen (15) tons per year or more of PM10;

One-half (0.5) ton per year or more of lead;

Two (2) tons per year or more of any single hazardous air pollutant; or

Five (5) tons per year or more of any combination of hazardous air pollutants without first obtaining a permit from the Division pursuant to the provisions of this chapter.

Rule 19.402 Approval Criteria

No permit shall be granted or modified under this chapter unless the owner/operator demonstrates to the reasonable satisfaction of the Division that the stationary source will be constructed or modified to operate without resulting in a violation of applicable portions of this rule or without interfering with the attainment or maintenance of a national ambient air quality standard.

Rule 19.403 Owner/Operator's Responsibilities

Issuance of a permit by the Division does not affect the responsibility of the owner/operator to comply with applicable portions of this rule.

Rule 19.404 Required Information

(A) General

Application for a permit shall be made on such forms and contain such information as the Division may reasonably require, including but not limited to:

(1) information on the nature and amounts of federally regulated air pollutants to be emitted by the stationary source; and

(2) such information on the location, design, and operation of stationary source as the Division may reasonably require.

(B) Duty to Supplement Submittal

If, while processing an application that has been determined to be complete, the Division determines that additional information is necessary to evaluate or take final action on that application, the Division may request such information in writing and set a reasonable deadline for a response.

(C) Duty to Correct Submittal

Any owner/operator who fails to submit any relevant facts or who has submitted incorrect information, shall, upon becoming aware of such failure or incorrect submittal, promptly submit such supplementary facts or corrected information. In addition, an applicant shall provide additional information as necessary to address any relevant requirements that become applicable to the stationary source before final action is taken on its application.

Rule 19.405 Action on Application

(A) Technical Review

The Division will review the application submitted under this chapter in order to ensure to their reasonable satisfaction that:

(1) the stationary source will be constructed or modified to operate without interfering with attainment or maintenance of a national ambient air quality standard;

(2) the stationary source will be constructed or modified to operate without violating any applicable regulation adopted by the EPA pursuant to §§ 111, 112, and 114 of the Clean Air Act as amended;

(3) the stationary source will be constructed or modified to operate without resulting in a violation of any applicable provisions of this rule;

(4) the emission rate calculations are complete and accurate; and

(5) if the facility wishes to measure and/or monitor operating parameters rather than actual emissions, the application describes a process which will be used to ensure that the calculations are translated into enforceable limits on operational parameters rather than emissions.

(B) Proposed Action

(1) If the Division initially determines the requirements of Rule 19.405(A) are met, they shall prepare a draft permit which:

(a) contains such conditions as are necessary to comply with this Rule;

(b) addresses all federally regulated air pollutant emissions and all federally regulated air pollutant emitting equipment at the stationary source except pollutants or equipment specifically exempt or as specifically provided for in paragraph (c) below; and

(c) establishes Best Available Control Technology (BACT) permitted emission rates, emission limitations or other enforceable conditions for GHG emissions pursuant to Chapter 9 of this Rule, if applicable. Draft permits for facilities not subject to a BACT determination in regard to GHG emissions pursuant to the provisions at Chapter 9 of this Rule shall not contain permitted emission rates, emission limitations or other enforceable conditions related to GHG emissions. However, the applicant may request that the Division include permitted emission rates, emission limitations or other enforceable conditions related to GHG emissions in the draft permit in order to set enforceable limits for the purpose of establishing synthetic minor status. In the event any provision of Rule 19

is found to be in conflict with this Section 19.405(B)(1), this Section shall take precedence.

(2) If the Division initially determines the requirements of this chapter are not met, they shall prepare a notice of intent to deny. This notice will state the reasons for the Division's denial of the stationary source's submittal.

(3) Except as provided in Rule 19.407, the public shall have an opportunity to comment on the Division's proposed permit decision in accordance with Rule 19.406.

(4) Within 90 days of receipt by the Division of an initial permit application, or an application for a major modification which contains such information as required by the Division (unless said period is extended by mutual agreement between the Division and the applicant), the Division shall notify the applicant in writing of its draft permitting decision. If the Division fails to take action of the application within the prescribed time frames, the aggrieved applicant may petition the Commission for relief from Division inaction. The Commission shall either grant or deny the petition within 45 days of its submittal.

(C) Final Action

The Division shall take final action on a permit application after the close of the public comment period. The Division shall notify in writing the owner/operator and any person that submitted a written comment, of the Division's final action and the Division's reasons for its final action.

Rule 19.406 Public Participation

(A) General

No permit shall be issued, denied, or modified unless the public has first had an opportunity to comment on the information submitted by the owner/operator and the Division's analysis, as demonstrated by the permit record, of the effect of construction or modification on ambient air quality, including the Division's proposed approval or disapproval of the permit.

(B) Public Availability of Information

For purposes of this section, opportunity to comment shall include, at a minimum:

Rule 19.411 General Permits

(A) General Authority

The Division may, after notice and opportunity for public participation provided under this chapter, issue a general permit covering numerous similar sources. The criteria for the review and approval of permits under this chapter shall be used for general permits as well. Any general permit shall comply with all requirements applicable to other permits and shall identify criteria by which sources may qualify for the general permit. They shall also include enforceable emission limitations or other control measures, means, or techniques, as well as schedules and timetables for compliance, as may be necessary or appropriate to meet the applicable requirements of this rule. To sources that qualify, the Division shall grant the conditions and terms of the general permit. The source shall be subject to enforcement action for operation without a permit if the source is later determined not to qualify for the conditions and terms of the general permit.

(B) Application

Sources that would qualify for a general permit must apply to the Division for coverage under the terms of the general permit or must apply for permit consistent with this chapter. The Division may grant a source's request for authorization to operate under a general permit, but such a grant shall not be a final permit action for purposes of judicial review.

(1) When any application for the issuance of a new permit or a modification of an existing permit is filed with the Division, the Division shall cause notice of the application to be published in a newspaper of general circulation in the county in which the proposed facility is to be located.

(2) The notice required by Rule 19.411(B)(1) shall advise that any interested person may request a public hearing on the permit application by giving the Division a written request within ten (10) days of the publication of the notice.

(3) Should a hearing be deemed necessary by the Division, or in the event the Division desires such a hearing, the Division shall schedule a public hearing and shall, by first class mail, notify the applicant and all persons who have submitted comments of the date, time, and place thereof.

Rule 19.412 Dispersion Modeling

The following shall apply when dispersion or other air quality modeling is used to meet the requirements of this chapter.

(A) General

All applications of air quality modeling involved in this chapter shall be based on the applicable models, data bases, and other requirements specified in Appendix W of 40 C.F.R. Part 51 (Guideline on Air Quality Models) as of the effective date of the federal final rule published by EPA in the Federal Register on November 9, 2005 (70 FR 68228).

(B) Substitution

Where an air quality model specified in the Guideline on Air Quality Models is inappropriate, the model may be modified or another model substituted. Such a modification or substitution of a model may be made on a case-by-case basis or, where appropriate, on a generic basis for a specific pollutant or type of stationary source. Written approval of the Administrator of the EPA must be obtained for any modification or substitution.

Rule 19.413 Confidentiality

Information which constitutes a trade secret shall be held confidential and segregated from the public files of the Division if requested in writing by the permit applicant in accordance with this subsection.

(A) For purposes of this subsection, "Trade Secret" means any information, including formula, pattern, compilation, program, device, method, technique, process, or rate of production that:

(1) Derives independent economic value (actual or potential) from not being generally known to, and not being readily ascertainable through, proper means by other persons who can obtain economic value from its disclosure or use, and

(2) Is the subject of efforts that are reasonable under the circumstances to maintain its secrecy.

(B) In order to establish entitlement to confidentiality, the applicant must submit a sworn affidavit to the Division that is subject to public scrutiny which describes in a manner that does not reveal trade secrets, the processes or market conditions that supports the applicant's confidentiality claim in the terms of Rule 19.413(A)(1) and (2). This affidavit must also recite the following:

"The applicant agrees to act as an indispensable party and to exercise extraordinary diligence in any legal action arising from the Division's denial of public access to the documents or information claimed herein to be a trade secret."

If an applicant anticipates numerous permit modifications that may involve regulatory review of trade secrets, it may submit an omnibus affidavit establishing the prerequisites of Rule 19.413(A)(1) and (2) and reference this document in future confidentiality claims.

(C) Confidentiality claims shall be afforded interim protected status until the Division determines whether the requirements of Rule 19.413(B) are satisfied. The Division shall make such determination prior to the issuance of any permit or publication of any draft permit. In the event the Division does not make such determination prior to permit issuance, the information shall be deemed confidential until a request is made. If a third party request to review information claimed as confidential is received before the Division provides its written determination concerning the claim, the Division shall not release such information before notifying the applicant of the request. The Division shall notify the applicant of the request and the Division's determination on the confidentiality claim at least two business days before releasing the information, at which time the applicant may choose to supplement its affidavit supporting confidentiality or seek legal recourse.

(D) For any permit application submitted subject to a claim of trade secret, the applicant shall provide two copies of the application; one prominently marked as confidential and another that is subject to public review with confidential information excised. The Division will not accept applications that are deemed totally confidential except under extraordinary circumstances guaranteeing future disclosure at a meaningful time for public review.

Rule 19.414 Operational Flexibility-Applicant's Duty to Apply for Alternative Scenarios

Any operating scenario allowed for in a permit may be implemented by the facility without the need for any permit revision or any notification to the Division. It is incumbent upon the permit applicant to apply for any reasonably anticipated alternative facility operating scenarios at the time of permit application. The Division shall include approved alternative operating scenarios in the permit.

Rule 19.415 Changes Resulting in No Emissions Increases

A permitted source may make changes within the facility that contravene permit terms without a permit revision if the changes:

(A) Are not modifications under any provision of Title I of the Act;

(B) Do not exceed emissions allowable under the permit (whether expressed therein as a rate of emissions or in the terms of total emissions);

(C) Do not violate applicable requirements; and

(D) Do not contravene federally enforceable permit terms and conditions that are monitoring (including test methods), recordkeeping, reporting, or compliance certification requirements;

provided that the facility provides the Division with written notification as required below in advance of the proposed changes, which shall be a minimum of 7 days, or such shorter time frame that the Division allows for emergencies. The source and the Division shall attach each such notice to their copy of the relevant permit. For each such change, the written notification required above shall include a brief description of the change within the permitted facility, the date on which the change will occur, any change in emissions, and any permit term or condition that is no longer applicable as a result of the change.

Rule 19.416 Permit Flexibility

(A) The Division may grant an extension to any testing, compliance or other dates in the permit. No extensions shall be authorized until the permittee of the facility receives written approval from the Division. The Division may grant such a request, at its discretion, in the following circumstances:

(1) The permittee of the facility makes such a request in writing at least 15 days in advance of the deadline specified in the facility's permit;

(2) The extension does not violate a federal requirement;

(3) The permittee of the facility demonstrates the need for the extension; and

(4) The permittee of the facility documents that all reasonable measures have been taken to meet the current deadline and documents reasons the current deadline cannot be met.

(B) The Division may grant a request to allow temporary emissions and/or testing that would otherwise exceed a permitted emission rate, throughput requirement or other limit in a facility's permit. No such activities shall be authorized until the permittee of the facility receives written approval from the Division. The Division may grant such a request, at its discretion, in the following circumstances:

(1) The permittee of the facility makes such a request in writing at least 30 days in advance of the date that temporary emissions and/or testing that would otherwise exceed a permitted emission rate, throughput requirement or other limit in a facility's permit;

(2) Such a request does not violate a federal requirement;

(3) Such a request is temporary in nature;

(4) Such a request will not result in a condition of air pollution;

(5) The request contains such information necessary for the Division to evaluate the request, including but not limited to, quantification of such emissions and the date and time such emission will occur;

(6) Such a request will result in increased emissions less than five tons of any individual criteria pollutant, one ton of any single HAP and 2.5 tons of total HAPs; and

(7) The permittee of the facility maintains records of the dates and results of such temporary emissions and/or testing.

(C) The Division may grant a request to allow an alternative to the monitoring specified in a facility's operating permit. No such activities shall be authorized until the permittee of the facility receives written approval from the Division. The Division may grant such a request, at its discretion, in the following circumstances:

(1) The permittee operator of the facility makes such a request in writing at least 30 days in advance of the first date that the monitoring alternative will be used at the facility;

(2) Such a request does not violate a federal requirement;

(3) The monitoring alternative provides an equivalent or greater degree of actual monitoring to the requirements in the facility's operating permit; and

(4) Any such request, if approved by the Division, is incorporated into the next permit modification application by the permittee of the facility.

Rule 19.417 Registration

(A) Sources currently holding permits issued pursuant to Rule 19 but whose emissions are below the permitting thresholds of Rule 19.401, and above the registration thresholds of Rule 18.315 may elect to continue to operate under their existing Rule 19 permit or they may submit a registration under Rule 18.315 and request their Rule 19 permit to be terminated. The Rule 19 permit shall remain in effect until terminated. If a source takes no action, the Rule 19 permit shall remain in effect.

(B) A source otherwise subject to registration under Rule 18.315 may elect to instead operate under a permit issued in accordance with Rule 19.402.

CHAPTER 5: GENERAL EMISSIONS LIMITATIONS APPLICABLE TO EQUIPMENT

Rule 19.501 Purpose

The purpose of this chapter is to define the general federally regulated air pollutant emissions limitations applicable to all equipment subject to the Plan. Stricter specific limitations may be required in applicable permits if such limitations are necessary to comply with federal law or regulations which are in effect as of the effective date of this rule.

Rule 19.502 General Rules

No person shall cause or permit the construction or modification of equipment which would cause or allow the following standards or limitations to be exceeded:

(A) Any National Ambient Air Quality Standard as defined herein;

(B) Any ambient air increment pursuant to Chapter 9 of this Rule;

(C) Any applicable emission limitation promulgated by the EPA; or

(D) Any applicable emission limitation promulgated by the Division in this rule.

Rule 19.503 Visible Emission Rules

(A) No person shall cause or permit visible emissions (other than uncombined water vapor) from equipment identified hereunder and which was installed and in operation, or for which a permit had been issued by the Division prior to January 30, 1972, to exceed the following limitations:

(1) Emissions shall not exceed 40% opacity, except that emissions greater than 40% opacity will be allowed for not more than six (6) minutes in the aggregate in any consecutive 60-minute period, provided such emissions will not be permitted more than three (3) times during any 24-hour period.

(B) No person shall cause or permit visible emissions (other than uncombined water vapor) from new equipment identified hereunder which was installed or permitted by the

Division after January 30, 1972, to exceed the following limitations or to exceed any applicable visible emission limitations of the New Source Performance Standards promulgated by the EPA:

(1) For incinerators and fuel burning equipment, exclusively, emissions shall not exceed 20% opacity except that emissions greater than 20% opacity but not exceeding 60% opacity will be allowed for not more than six (6) minutes in the aggregate in any consecutive 60-minute period, provided such emissions will not be permitted more than three (3) times during any 24-hour period.

(2) For equipment used in a manufacturing process, emissions shall not exceed 20%.

(C) Opacity of visible emissions shall be determined using EPA Method 9 (40 C.F.R. Part 60, Appendix A).

Rule 19.504 Stack Height/Dispersion Rules

The stack height provisions of 40 C.F.R. § 51.118 are incorporated by reference. The definition of "stack," "a stack in existence," "dispersion technique," "good engineering practice," "nearby," and "excessive concentration" are defined in 40 C.F.R. §§ 51.100(ff) through (kk) are incorporated into this chapter by reference as of September 12, 1986.

Rule 19.505 Revised Emissions Limitation

The emissions limitations contained within the Plan and applicable permits are for the purpose of assuring the attainment and maintenance of the NAAQS and have been established within the framework of information presently available to the Division. As additional and more precise information becomes available, the emission limitations and reporting procedures of this chapter may be amended as described below:

(A) More restrictive limitations to protect the NAAQS. In accordance with the provisions of the federal Clean Air Act, as amended, and the federal regulations promulgated pursuant to the Clean Air Act, as amended, the emission limitations and reporting procedures of this chapter or any applicable permits may be further amended and made more restrictive where the Director finds more restrictive measures are necessary to assure maintenance of the NAAQS.

(B) Less restrictive limitations. Any person subject to the emission limitations contained in this Plan or in a permit may petition the Director for a less stringent limitation on the grounds that the existing limitation cannot be met when considering physical, economical, or technological constraints. In no case shall the Director approve a less stringent limitation if it would cause a violation of the NAAQS. The Director shall not approve a less stringent limitation if it violates a federal emission standard or regulation, unless approved according to applicable federal regulations.

The Director shall take into account the following factors when making such determinations:

(1) The process, fuels, and raw materials available and to be employed in the facility involved;

(2) The engineering aspects of the application of various types of control techniques which have been adequately demonstrated;

(3) Process and fuel changes;

(4) The respective costs of the application of all such control techniques, process changes, alternative fuels, etc.; and

(5) Locational and siting considerations.

(C) In any enforcement proceeding, the permittee seeking to establish the occurrence of an emergency has the burden of proof.

(D) This provision is in addition to any emergency or upset provision contained in any applicable requirement.

CHAPTER 6: UPSET AND EMERGENCY CONDITIONS

Rule 19.601 Upset Conditions

For purposes of this paragraph, "upset condition" shall be defined as exceedences of applicable emission limitations lasting 30 or more minutes, in the aggregate, during a 24-hour period, unless otherwise specified in an applicable permit or rule (such as New Source Performance Standards [NSPS] regulations). All upset conditions, resulting in violation of an applicable permit or rule, shall be reported to the Division. Any source exceeding an emission limit established by the Plan or applicable permit shall be deemed in violation of said Plan or permit and shall be subject to enforcement action. The Division may forego enforcement action for federally regulated air pollutant emissions given that the person responsible for the source of the excess emissions does the following:

(A) Demonstrates to the satisfaction of the Division that the emissions resulted from:

(1) equipment malfunction or upset and are not the result of negligence or improper maintenance; or

(2) physical constraints on the ability of a source to comply with the emission standard, limitation or rate during startup or shutdown;

And that all reasonable measures have been taken to immediately minimize or eliminate the excess emissions.

(B) Reports such occurrence or upset or breakdown of equipment to the Division by the end of the next business day after the discovery of the occurrence.

(C) Submits to the Division, at its request, a full report of such occurrence, including the identification of and location of the process and control equipment involved in the upset and including a statement of all known causes and the scheduling and nature of the actions to be taken to eliminate future occurrences or to minimize the amount by which said limits are exceeded and to reduce the length of time for which said limits are exceeded.

Rule 19.602 Emergency Conditions

An "emergency" means any situation arising from the sudden and reasonably unforeseeable events beyond the control of the source, including natural disasters, which situation requires immediate corrective action to restore normal operation, and that causes the source to exceed a technology-based emission limitation under the permit, due to unavoidable increases in emissions attributable to the upset condition. An emergency shall not include non-compliance to the extent caused by improperly designed equipment, lack of preventive maintenance, careless or improper operation, or operator error.

(A) An emergency constitutes a complete affirmative defense to an action brought for noncompliance with such technology-based limitations if the following conditions are met. The affirmative defense of emergency shall demonstrate through properly signed contemporaneous operating logs, or such other relevant evidence that:

(1) An emergency occurred and that the permittee can identify the cause(s) of the emergency;

(2) The permitted facility was at the time being properly operated;

(3) During the period of the emergency, the permittee took all reasonable steps to minimize levels of emissions that exceeded the emission standards, or other requirements in the permit; and

(4) The permittee submitted notice of the upset to the Division by the end of the next business day after the emergency. This notice must contain a description of the emergency, any steps taken to mitigate emissions, and corrective actions taken.

(B) [RESERVED]

CHAPTER 7: SAMPLING, MONITORING, AND REPORTING REQUIREMENTS

Rule 19.701 Purpose

The purpose of this chapter is to generally define the powers of the Division in requiring sampling, monitoring, and reporting requirements at stationary sources.

CHAPTER 9: PREVENTION OF SIGNIFICANT DETERIORATION

Rule 19.901 Title

The following rules of the Arkansas Pollution Control and Ecology Commission, adopted in accordance with the provisions of Part II of the Arkansas Water and Air Pollution Control Act at Ark. Code Ann. § 8-4-101et seq., shall be known as the Prevention of Significant Deterioration Rules of the Arkansas Plan of Implementation for Air Pollution Control, hereinafter referred to, respectively, as the "PSD Rules."

Rule 19.902 Purposes

Promulgation and enforcement of these PSD Rules is intended to further the purposes of the Plan and the Rules of the Plan, including, but not limited to, acceptance of delegation by the EPA of authority for enforcement of rules governing the prevention of significant deterioration of air quality and rules governing the protection of visibility in mandatory Class I federal areas.

Rule 19.903 Definitions

(A) "Advance notification" (of a permit application) means any written communication which establishes the applicant's intention to construct, and which provides the Division with sufficient information to determine that the proposed source may constitute a major new source or major modification, and that such source may affect any mandatory Class I federal area, including, but not limited to, submittal of a draft or partial permit application, a PSD monitoring plan, or a sufficiently detailed letter. "Advance notification" does not include general inquiries about the Division's rules.

(B) "Regulated NSR Pollutant," for purposes of this chapter, means the following:

(1) Any pollutant for which a national ambient air quality standard has been adopted under Chapter 2 of this Rule and any pollutant identified under this paragraph (B)(1) as a constituent or precursor for such pollutant. Precursors identified by the Division for purposes of NSR are the following:

(a) Volatile organic compounds and nitrogen oxides are precursors to ozone in all attainment and unclassifiable areas.

(b) Sulfur dioxide is a precursor to PM2.5 in all attainment and unclassifiable areas.

(c) Nitrogen oxides are presumed to be precursors to PM2.5 in all attainment and unclassifiable areas, unless Arkansas demonstrates to the Administrator's satisfaction or EPA demonstrates that emissions of nitrogen oxides from sources in a specific area are not a significant contributor to that area's ambient PM2.5 concentrations.

(d) Volatile organic compounds are presumed not to be precursors to PM2.5 in any attainment or unclassifiable area, unless Arkansas demonstrates to the Administrator's satisfaction or EPA demonstrates that emissions of volatile organic compounds from sources in a specific area are a significant contributor to that area's ambient PM2.5 concentrations.

(2) Any pollutant that is subject to any standard promulgated under Section 111 of the Act as of July 27, 2012;

(3) Any Class I or II substance subject to a standard promulgated under or established by Title VI of the Act;

(4) Any pollutant that otherwise is subject to regulation under the Act;

(5) Notwithstanding paragraphs (B)(1) through (4) of this section, the term regulated NSR pollutant shall not include any or all hazardous air pollutants either listed in Section 112 of the Act, or added to the list pursuant to Section 112(b)(2) of the Act, and which have not been delisted pursuant to Section 112(b)(3) of the Act, unless the listed hazardous air pollutant is also regulated as a constituent or precursor of a general pollutant listed under Section 108 of the Act as of July 27, 2012; and

(6) PM2.5 emissions and PM10 emissions shall include gaseous emissions from a source or activity, which condense to form particulate matter at ambient temperatures. As of the effective date of the federal final rule published by EPA in the Federal Register on Thursday, October 25, 2012 (77 FR 65107), such condensable particulate matter shall be accounted for in applicability determinations and in establishing emissions limitations for PM2.5, and PM10 in PSD permits. Compliance with emissions limitations for PM2.5, and PM10 issued prior to this date shall not be based on condensable particulate matter unless required by the terms and conditions of the permit or the applicable implementation plan. Applicability determinations made prior to this date without accounting for condensable particulate matter shall not be considered in violation of this chapter.

(C) For the purpose of this chapter, "subject to regulation" means, for any air pollutant, that the pollutant is subject to either a provision of the federal Clean Air Act, or a nationally-applicable regulation codified by the Administrator pursuant to 40 C.F.R., Chapter 1, Subchapter C and adopted herein, that requires actual control of the quantity of emissions of that pollutant and that such a control requirement has taken effect and is operative to control, limit or restrict the quantity of emissions of that pollutant released from the regulated activity.

(D) All other terms used herein shall have the same meaning as set forth in Chapter 2 of Rule 19 or in 40 C.F.R. § 52.21(b) [PSD] and 40 C.F.R. § 51.301 [Protection of Visibility] as of October 20, 2010, and adopted in Rule 19.904, unless manifestly inconsistent with the context in which they are used. Wherever there is a difference between the definitions in Chapter 2 of Rule 19 and those listed in 40 C.F.R. § 52.21(b) and C.F.R. § 51.301, the federal definitions as listed in 40 C.F.R. § 52.21(b), as adopted in Rule 19.904 and Rule 19.903(A), (B) and (C), and 40 C.F.R. § 51.301 as of October 20, 2010, shall apply.

(E) The definition for "routine maintenance, repair and replacement" in 40 C.F.R. § 52.21(b)(2)(iii)(a) is not incorporated.

(A) Applicability and Effective Dates

(1) Sources which are subject to provisions of the Rules for the Control of Volatile Organic Compounds include:

(a) Any source for which controls are governed by Rule 19.1005 hereof;

(b) Any source which is subject to the terms of a Commission order issued pursuant to Rule 19.1004(D)(1) hereof, and

(c) Any new major source.

(2) The provisions of Chapter 10, the Rules for the Control of Volatile Organic Compounds, shall be limited to sources located in Pulaski County, except as provided in Rule 19.1004(D)(1) and shall go into full force and effect on the effective date provided, however, that the provisions of Rule 19.1004(D)(1) shall go into full force and effect on April 1, 1979. The effective date for Rule 19.1005(A)(B) and (C) is July 1, 1979, and for Rule 19.1005(D) and (E) is October 1, 1980. The effective date for Rule 19.1005(F) is April 1, 1981.

(B) Exemptions and Variances

(1) [RESERVED]

(2) The requirements of Rule 19.1005 are based upon information presented in the Control Technique Guidelines as published by the EPA and are intended to be consistent with Reasonably Available Control Technology. The owner or operator of equipment affected by the provisions of Rule 19.1005 may be granted a variance from the specific provisions of such section provided that such owner or operator can demonstrate to the reasonable satisfaction of the Commission that full and strict compliance is technologically or economically infeasible or that alternative techniques to be employed by such owner or operator will result in substantially the same environmental benefits as would be achieved with full and strict compliance with the provisions of Rule 19.1005. In no event, however, shall the Commission issue variances from the requirements of Rule 19.1005 if such variances will prevent reasonable further progress for the attainment and maintenance of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards for ozone.

(C) Toxic Compounds

The Rules for the Control of Volatile Organic Compounds are not intended as appropriate controls for sources which emit volatile organic compounds which are hazardous air pollutants.

(D) Determination of Reasonably Available Control Technology

(1) Where the Division proposes the existence of Reasonably Available Control Technology for existing sources, other than the sources for which the provisions of Rule 19.1005 are applicable, the Division shall give public notice of such determination and shall, in such notice, describe the nature of such technology and shall list by size, type, source, category or by individual source name, the affected sources. The public notice shall also give notice of public hearing concerning the subject proposals. If, after review of the information produced through the public hearing process, the Division determines that such technology does exist and that the application of such technology is necessary to maintain reasonable further progress toward the attainment and maintenance of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards for ozone, the Division shall issue an order requiring the installation of such technology.

(2) Any order issued pursuant to Rule 19.1004(D)(1) above may require the owner or operator of sources affected by such order to file such schedules and reports as the Division feels necessary to assure that the subject technology is placed into operation as expeditiously as practicable. The terms of such orders may be modified where the Division finds that such modifications are necessary to avoid economic hardship and where such modification would not interfere with reasonable further progress toward the attainment of the previously cited standards.

(E) Permits and Compliance Schedules

(1) Existing Sources:

(a) No person shall cause or permit the operation or use of an existing source to which any provision of Rule 19.1005 applies unless the owner or operator of such source shall have submitted to the Division, prior to the applicable date below, a compliance schedule indicating what steps have been, or will be taken to bring the operation of such source into compliance with the provisions of Rule 19.1005.

(2) New Sources:

Except as provided herein, no person shall commence the construction, installation, or modification of a new source after July 1, 1979, unless that person has first received a permit from the Division. Application for permit shall be of such form and contain such information as the Division may reasonably require.

(a) New Major Sources: No permit shall be issued for the construction, installation or modification of a new major source after July 1, 1979, unless the Division determines the following conditions to have been met:

(i) The emissions resulting from the proposed source when considered together with all other existing and proposed emissions of volatile organic compounds in Pulaski County will not cause or contribute to emission levels which exceed the allowance permitted for volatile organic compounds under the Arkansas Plan of Implementation for Air Pollution Control, as revised to comply with the provisions of the Clean Air Act.

(ii) The emissions resulting from the proposed new major source will comply with the requirements of the FCAA which are in effect as of the effective date of this rule.

(iii) The owner or operator of the proposed new or modified major source has demonstrated that all major stationary sources owned or operated by such person (or by any entity controlling, controlled by, or under common control with such person) in Arkansas are in compliance, or on a schedule of compliance with all applicable emission limitations and standards under the federal Clean Air Act, including the Arkansas Plan of Implementation for Air Pollution Control.

(iv) A permit may be issued to a new major source which would otherwise cause or contribute to emission levels which exceed the allowable levels for Pulaski County, as described in the State Implementation Plan for Air Pollution Control, as amended, if the owner or operator of that source first submits legally binding agreements to the Division which reflect emission reductions from other sources in Pulaski County, or from sources within seventy-two (72) miles of the North Little Rock Municipal Airport, which would more than offset the emissions from such proposed new major source. Emission reductions claimed by such owner or operator may not include those emission reductions in Pulaski County which are necessary to reduce the total volatile organic compound emission to the allowable level in Pulaski County.

(b) Other New Sources:

(i) No permit shall be issued for a new source of the size, type, class, or category for which the provisions of Rule 19.1005 apply unless the Division finds that such new source incorporates Reasonably Available Control Technology developed for the kind and amount of volatile organic compounds to be emitted by the source and that, as a minimum, the source will be designed, constructed and operated such that the emissions therefrom, will not exceed the allowable emission rate provided by such section for existing sources.

(ii) No permit shall be issued for a new source of the size, type, class or category for which a Division Order has been issued pursuant to Rule 19.1004(D)(1), unless the Division finds that such source incorporates Reasonably Available Control Technology developed for the kind and amount of volatile organic compounds to be emitted by such source and that, as a minimum, the source will be designed, constructed, and operated such that the emissions therefrom will not exceed the rate required of existing sources by such order.

(F) Testing and Reporting Requirements

For the allocations allocated for 2009, 2010, 2011, baseline data will be determined using gross electrical output for years 2000 through 2004.

(B) With regard to the timing requirements contained in Rule 19.1403, for each control period in 2009 and thereafter, the Division will allocate to all CAIR NOx Ozone Season units in the State that have baseline gross electric generation (as determined under Rule 19.1404(A)) a total amount of CAIR NOx Ozone Season allowances equal to 95 percent for a control period, of the tons of NOx emissions in the State trading budget under Rule 19.1402 (except as provided in Rule 19.1404(E)).

(C) The Division will allocate CAIR NOx Ozone Season allowances to each CAIR NOx Ozone Season unit under Rule 19.1404(B) in an amount determined by multiplying the total amount of CAIR NOx Ozone Season allowances allocated under Rule 19.1404(B) by the ratio of the baseline gross electric generation of such CAIR NOx Ozone Season unit to the total amount of baseline gross electric generation of all such CAIRNOx Ozone Season units in the State and rounding to the nearest whole allowances as appropriate.

(D) For each control period in 2009 and thereafter, the Division will allocate CAIR NOx Ozone Season allowances to CAIR NOx Ozone Season units in the State that do not yet have a baseline gross electric generation (as determined under Rule 19.1404(A)), in accordance with the following procedures:

(1) The Division will establish a separate new unit set-aside for each control period. Each new unit set-aside will be allocated CAIR NOx Ozone Season allowances equal to five percent (5%) of the amount of tons of NOx emissions in the State trading budget under Rule 19.1402.

(2) The CAIR designated representative of such a CAIR NOx Ozone Season unit may submit to the Division a request, in a format specified by the Division, to be allocated CAIR NOx Ozone Season allowances, starting with the later of the control period in 2009 or the first control period after the control period in which the CAIR N0X Ozone Season unit commences commercial operation and until the first control period for the which the unit is allocated CAIR NOx Ozone Season allowances under Rule 19.1404(B). The CAIR NOx Ozone Season allowance allocation request must be submitted on or before January 1 of the first control period for which the CAIR NOx Ozone Season allowances are requested and after the date on which the CAIR NOx Ozone Season unit commences commercial operation.

(3) In a CAIR NOx Ozone Season allowance allocation request under Rule 19.1404(D)(2), the CAIR designated representative may request for a control period CAIR NOx Ozone Season allowances in an amount not exceeding the CAIR NOx Ozone Season unit's total tons of NOx emissions during the control period immediately before such control period.

(4) The Division will review each CAIR NOx Ozone Season allowance allocation request under Rule 19.1404(D)(2) and will allocate CAIR NOx Ozone Season allowances for each control period pursuant to such request as follows:

(a) The Division will accept an allowance allocation request only if the request meets, or is adjusted by the Division as necessary to meet, the requirements of Rule 19.1404(D)(2) and (3).

(b) On or after February 1 of the control period, the Division will determine the sum of the CAIR NOx Ozone Season allowances requested (as adjusted under Rule 19.1404(D)(4)(a)) for the control period.

(c) If the amount of CAIR NOx Ozone Season allowances in the new unit set-aside for the control period is greater than or equal to the sum under Rule 19.1404 (D)(4)(b), then the Division will allocate the amount of CAIR NOx Ozone Season allowances requested (as adjusted under Rule 19.1404 (D)(4)(a)) to each CAIR NOx Ozone Season unit covered by Rule 19.1404 (D)(4)(a).

(d) If the amount of CAIR NOx Ozone Season allowances in the new unit set-aside for the control period is less than the sum under Rule 19.1404 (D)(4)(b), then the Division will allocate to each CAIR NOx Ozone Season unit covered by an allowance allocation request accepted under Rule 19.1404 (D)(4)(a) the amount of the CAIRNOx Ozone Season allowances requested (as adjusted under Rule 19.1404 (D)(4)(a)), multiplied by the amount of CAIR NOx Ozone Season allowances in the new unit set-aside for the control period, divided by the sum determined under Rule 19.1404 (D)(4)(b), and rounded to the nearest whole allowance as appropriate.

(e) The Division will notify each CAIR designated representative that submitted an allowance allocation request of the amount of CAIR NOx Ozone Season allowances (if any) allocated for the control period to the CAIR NOx Ozone Season unit covered by the request.

(E) If, after completion of the procedures under Rule 19.1404(D)(4) for a control period, any unallocated CAIR NOx Ozone Season allowances remain in the new unit set-aside for the control period, the Division will allocate to each CAIR NOx Ozone Season unit that was allocated CAIR NOx Ozone Season allowances under Rule 19.1404 (B) an amount of CAIR NOx Ozone Season allowances equal to the total amount of such remaining unallocated CAIR NOx Ozone Season allowances, multiplied by the unit's allocation under Rule 19.1404(B), divided by ninety-five percent (95%) of the amount of tons of NOx emissions in the State trading budget under Rule 19.1402, and rounded to the nearest whole allowance as appropriate.
