Tenn. Comp. R. & Regs. 1200-03-24-.01 - GENERAL PROVISIONS

(1) This chapter provides that the degree of emission limitation required of any source for control of any air pollutant must not be affected by that portion of any source's stack height that exceeds good engineering practice (GEP) or by any other dispersion technique, except as provided in (a) and (b) of paragraph (2) of this rule. A source may want to establish an emission limitation based on the good engineering practice stack height demonstrated by a fluid model or field study. If the source demonstrates the good engineering practice stack height by a fluid model or a field study, the Technical Secretary must notify the public of the availability of the demonstration study and must provide opportunity for a public hearing on it. This chapter does not restrict in any manner the actual stack height of any source.
(2) The provisions of this chapter shall not apply to:
(a) Stack heights in existence, or dispersion techniques implemented on or before December 31, 1970, except where pollutants are being emitted from such stacks or using such dispersion techniques by stationary sources which were constructed, or reconstructed, or for which major modifications, as defined in 1200-3-9-.01(4)(b) 2. and; 1200-3-9-.01(4)(b) 2.(i)(I) and were carried out after December 31, 1970; or
(b) Coal-fired steam electric generating units which commenced operation before July 1, 1957, and whose stacks were constructed under a construction contract awarded before February 8, 1974.
