(1) The provisions of the rule shall apply to all sources required to obtain a major stationary source operating permit in accordance with the provisions of paragraph 1200-03-09-.02(11). Such sources are also subject to the provisions of rule 1200-03-10-.01 and rule 1200-03-10-.02.
(2) The Technical Secretary is authorized to require by permit condition any periodic or enhanced monitoring, recording and reporting that he deems necessary for the verification of the source's compliance with the applicable requirements as defined in paragraph 1200-03-09-.02(11).
(a) Monitoring may include, but is not limited to: source testing; in-stack monitoring; process parameter monitoring of material feed rates, temperature, pressure differentials, power consumption or fuel consumption; chemical analysis of feed stocks, coatings, or solvents; ambient monitoring; visible emissions evaluations; control equipment performance parameters of pressure differentials, power consumption, air or liquid flow rates or amount of air contaminants collected for disposal; air contaminant leak detection tests from process or control equipment; and any other such monitoring that the Technical Secretary may prescribe.
1. The monitoring must be conducted in a manner acceptable to the Technical Secretary. This includes, but is not limited to: sampling methods, analytical methods, sensor locations and frequency of sampling.
2. The monitoring method must have at least a 95% operational availability rate to prove compliance directly or indirectly with the applicable requirements unless otherwise stipulated by the Technical Secretary in the permit. Ambient air monitors shall have their minimum operational availability rates prescribed by chapter 1200-03-12. Missing data in excess of these levels shall be grounds for enforcement action.
(b) Recordkeeping may include handwritten or computerized records and shall be kept in accordance with the manner approved by the Technical Secretary. The Technical Secretary or an employee of the Department authorized by the Technical Secretary shall have the authority to inspect the records during reasonable hours at the place where such records are kept. The source owner or operator must provide copies of the records to the Technical Secretary upon request. If the records are computerized, the owner or operator may provide them to the Technical Secretary in an electronic format compatible with the Department's electronic data processing equipment for initial review. Upon discovery of electronic data that may reveal noncompliance, the Technical Secretary shall ask for excerpts documenting the noncompliance, and the owner or operator shall comply with the request. All electronic submittals shall be in "read only" format such that the submittal cannot be written over with different electronic data.
1. In the absence of a specific recordkeeping procedure, it is the general duty of a person required to keep the records required under this rule in such a fashion that compliance with the applicable requirement can be readily ascertained.
2. Records must be legible, quantifiable and supported by documentation to validate the entries.
(c) Reporting shall be in the manner prescribed by the Technical Secretary in the permit or approved by him in the source's operating permit application.
(d) All reports submitted to the Technical Secretary shall be signed by a responsible official consistent with the provisions of part 1200-03-09-.02(11)(d) 4.
