(II) Require submittal of information, by a date certain, sufficient to demonstrate that the source risk will not exceed the Immediate Curtailment Level, including but not limited to a revised emissions inventory.
(e) If risk from the source is greater than the Immediate Curtailment Level, a report describing the immediate action taken by the owner or operator to reduce risk to below the Immediate Curtailment Level as required under OAR 340-245-0130(7) must be submitted to DEQ no later than seven days after DEQ approval of a Level 3 Risk Assessment or a Level 4 Risk Assessment under subsection (d)(ii), (iii), or (iv);

(2) Upon receipt of a submittal described in section (1), DEQ will review the submittal and if DEQ determines that any additional information, corrections, or updates are required in order to approve the submittal, then DEQ will provide the owner or operator with a written request to provide such information by a date certain.
(3) An owner or operator may request an extension of time from a deadline established in section (1) or section (2) by providing DEQ with a written request no fewer than 15 days prior to the submittal deadline. DEQ may grant an extension based on the following criteria:
(a) The owner or operator has demonstrated progress in completing the submittal; and
(b) A delay is necessary, for good cause shown by the owner or operator, related to obtaining more accurate or new data, performing additional analyses, or addressing changes in operations or other key parameters, any of which are likely to have a substantive impact on the outcomes of the submittal.
(4) If DEQ determines it is not able to approve the owner or operator's submittal, or if the owner or operator does not timely provide additional information or corrections requested by DEQ, then in addition to any other remedies available, DEQ may:

(b) Inform the owner or operator of the deficiency, and provide the owner or operator with a revised deadline to submit the needed information.
(5) Recordkeeping. The owner or operator of a source that provides DEQ with any information related to a risk assessment completed under this rule must retain all of its records related to the risk assessment for five years from the date the information is submitted to DEQ.
