For an existing stationary facility that causes visibility
impairment in any mandatory Class I Federal area, the Technical Secretary shall
specify on the operating permit(s) as permit conditions the emission limitation
that is "best available retrofit technology (BART)", subject to the following
(1) Best available
retrofit technology (BART) must be determined for fossil-fuel fired generating
lants having a total generating capacity in excess of 750 megawatts pursuant to
"Guidelines for Determining Best Available Retrofit Technology for Coal-fired
Power Plants and Other Stationary Facilities" (1980).
(2) Each existing stationary facility is
required to install and operate BART as expeditiously as practicable but in no
case later than five years after July 24, 1994.
A BART analysis will be provided for any
existing stationary facility that might cause or contribute to impairment of
visibility in any mandatory Class I Federal area at such times, as determined
by the EPA, as new technology for control of the pollutant becomes reasonably
available and if:
(a) The pollutant is emitted
by that existing stationary facility:
(b) Controls representing BART for the
pollutant have not previously been required under this rules; and
(c) The impairment of visibility in any
mandatory Class I Federal area is reasonably attributable to the emissions of
