Current through Register Vol. 60, No. 12, December 1, 2021

(1) For any excess emissions event at a source with an Oregon Title V Operating Permit and for any other source as required by permit, the owner or operator must submit a written report of excess emissions for each calendar day of the event. The report must be submitted within 15 days of the date of the event and include the following:
(a) The date and time of the beginning of the excess emissions event and the duration or best estimate of the time until return to normal operation;
(b) The date and time the owner or operator notified DEQ of the event;
(c) The equipment involved;
(d) Whether the event occurred during planned startup, planned shutdown, scheduled maintenance, or as a result of a breakdown, malfunction, or emergency;
(e) Steps taken to mitigate emissions and corrective actions taken, including whether the approved procedures for a planned startup, shutdown, or maintenance activity were followed;
(f) The magnitude and duration of each occurrence of excess emissions during the course of an event and the increase over normal rates or concentrations as determined by continuous monitoring or a best estimate, supported by operating data and calculations;
(g) The final resolution of the cause of the excess emissions; and
(h) Where applicable, evidence supporting any claim that emissions in excess of technology-based limits were due to an emergency pursuant to OAR 340-214-0360.
(2) Based on the severity of event, DEQ may specify a shorter time period for report submittal.
(3) All source owners or operators must keep an excess emissions log of all planned and unplanned excess emissions. The log must include all pertinent information as required in section (1) and be kept by the owner or operator for five calendar years.
(4) At each annual reporting period specified in a permit, or sooner if DEQ requires, the owner or operator must submit:
(a) A copy of the excess emissions log entries for the reporting period; unless previously submitted in accordance with section (1); and
(b) Where applicable, current procedures to minimize emissions during startup, shutdown, or maintenance as outlined in OAR 340-214-0310 and 340-214-0320. The owner or operator must specify in writing whether these procedures are new, modified, or have already been approved by DEQ.
