445B.3368. Additional requirements for application; exception

1. The information otherwise required by this section is not required if the owner or operator applied for an operating permit to construct and no changes have been made to the facility. The information provided in the application for the operating permit to construct must be resubmitted as part of the Class I operating permit application.

2. In addition to the information required pursuant to NAC 445B.295, an application for a Class I operating permit must include:

(a) Descriptions of all emissions of any pollutants for which the source is major and all emissions of regulated air pollutants from all emission units.

(b) An identification and a description of all points of emissions and all activities which may generate emissions of the regulated air pollutants described pursuant to paragraph (a) in sufficient detail to establish the basis for the applicability of standards and fees.

(c) The emission rates of all regulated air pollutants that are subject to an emissions limitation pursuant to an applicable requirement. The emission rates must be described in tons per year and in such terms as are necessary to establish compliance using the applicable standard reference test method.

(d) Any other information required by any applicable requirement.

(e) The calculations on which the information in this subsection and subsection 1 are based.

(f) Citations to and a description of all applicable requirements.

(g) A reference to any applicable test method used for determining compliance with each applicable requirement.

(h) A compliance plan that contains the following:

(1) A description of the compliance status of the stationary source with respect to all applicable requirements.

(2) A description that includes the following:

(I) For the applicable requirements with which the stationary source is in compliance, a statement that the stationary source will continue to comply with those requirements.

(II) For the applicable requirements that may become effective during the term of the permit, a statement that the stationary source will comply with those requirements on a timely basis.

(III) For each applicable requirement with which the stationary source will not be in compliance at the time that a permit will be issued, a narrative description of how the stationary source will achieve compliance with each such requirement.

(3) Schedules of compliance as follows:

(I) For the applicable requirements with which the stationary source is in compliance, a statement that the stationary source will continue to comply with those requirements.

(II) For the applicable requirements that may become effective during the term of the permit, a statement that the stationary source will comply with those requirements on a timely basis, unless the applicable requirement expressly requires a more detailed schedule for compliance.

(III) For each applicable requirement with which the stationary source will not be in compliance at the time that a permit will be issued, a schedule of compliance for each applicable requirement. Such a schedule must include a schedule of remedial measures, including, without limitation, an enforceable sequence of actions with milestones, leading to compliance with the applicable requirements with which the stationary source is not in compliance. If the stationary source is subject to a judicial consent decree or an administrative order regarding its noncompliance, the schedule must resemble and be at least as stringent as any schedule contained in the decree or order. Such a schedule of compliance must be supplemental to, and must not sanction noncompliance with, the applicable requirements on which it is based.

(4) A schedule for the submission of certified progress reports at least once every 6 months for a schedule of compliance to remedy a violation. Such progress reports must contain the following:

(I) Dates for performing activities or achieving milestones or compliance required in the schedule of compliance, and the dates when the activities, milestones or compliance occurred or were achieved; and

(II) An explanation as to why any dates in the schedule of compliance were not or will not be met, and any preventative or corrective measures adopted.

The content requirements of the compliance plan specified in this paragraph apply and must be included in the acid rain portion of a compliance plan for an affected source, except as specifically superseded by regulations adopted pursuant to Title IV of the Act with regard to the schedule and methods the source will use to achieve compliance with the emissions limitations relating to acid rain.

(i) Requirements for compliance certification, including:

(1) A certification of compliance with all applicable requirements by a responsible official, consistent with this section and 42 U.S.C. § 7414(a)(3);

(2) A statement of methods used for determining compliance, including a description of monitoring, recordkeeping and reporting requirements, and methods of testing;

(3) A schedule for submission of certifications of compliance during the term of the permit to be submitted not less frequently than annually, or more frequently if so specified by the underlying applicable requirement or the permitting authority; and

(4) A statement indicating the status of compliance by the stationary source with any applicable enhanced monitoring and compliance certification requirements of the Act.

3. In addition to the information required pursuant to subsections 1 and 2, an application for a Class I operating permit must include, without limitation:

(a) For a proposed new major stationary source or a proposed major modification to an existing stationary source:

(1) All information required pursuant to 40 C.F.R. § 52.21;

(2) A description of all emissions of each regulated pollutant for which the source is a major stationary source or that will increase by a significant amount as a result of the major modification;

(3) A description of all emissions of each regulated pollutant associated with the major modification;

(4) A description of each hydrographic area that may be triggered for increment consumption; and

(5) Any other information that the Director determines is necessary to process the application.

(b) For a proposed new major source or a proposed significant revision to an existing stationary source:

(1) All information required by NAC 445B.308 to 445B.313, inclusive;

(2) Any other information that the Director determines is necessary to process the application; and

(3) For stationary sources subject to the provisions regarding new source review set forth in 42 U.S.C. §§ 7501 to 7515, inclusive, all information required by 42 U.S.C. § 7503.

(c) For a proposed new major source or a proposed significant revision to an existing stationary source which is subject to the requirements of 42 U.S.C. § 7412 regarding hazardous air pollutants:
