approved by the board or specified in applicable subparts listed in
, the requirements of
this section shall apply to all continuous monitoring systems required for
affected facilities in accordance with applicable subparts listed in
. However, nothing in
this chapter shall exempt any owner from complying with subsection F of this
monitoring systems and monitoring devices shall be installed and operational
prior to conducting performance tests under
. Verification of
operational status shall, as a minimum, include completion of the
manufacturer's written requirements or recommendations for installation,
operation and calibration of the device.
During any performance tests required
or within 30 days
thereafter and at such other times as may be requested by the board, the owner
of any affected facility shall conduct continuous monitoring system performance
evaluations and furnish the board within 60 days of them two or, upon request,
more copies of a written report of the results of such tests. These continuous
monitoring system performance evaluations shall be conducted in accordance with
the requirements and procedures contained in the applicable performance
specification of Appendix B of 40 CFR Part 60
Unless otherwise approved by the board,
all continuous monitoring systems required by subsection A of this section
shall be installed, calibrated, maintained and operated in accordance with
applicable requirements in this section,
and the applicable subpart listed in
After receipt and consideration of written
application, the board may approve alternatives to any monitoring procedures or
requirements of this chapter including, but not limited to, the following:
1. Alternative monitoring requirements when
installation of a continuous monitoring system or monitoring device specified
by this chapter would not provide accurate measurements due to liquid water or
other interferences caused by substances within the effluent gases.
2. Alternative monitoring requirements when
the affected facility is infrequently operated.
3. Alternative monitoring requirements to
accommodate continuous monitoring systems that require additional measurements
to correct for stack moisture conditions.
4. Alternative locations for installing
continuous monitoring systems or monitoring devices when the owner can
demonstrate that installation at alternate locations will enable accurate and
Alternative methods of converting pollutant concentration measurements to units
of the applicable standards.
Alternative procedures for performing daily checks or zero and span drift that
do not involve use of span gases or test cells.
Alternatives to the ASTM test methods or
sampling procedures specified by any subpart listed in
Alternative continuous monitoring systems
that do not meet the design or performance requirements in Performance
Specification 1 of Appendix B of 40 CFR Part 60
, but adequately demonstrate a
definite and consistent relationship between its measurements and the
measurements of opacity by a system complying with the requirements in
Performance Specification 1 of Appendix B of 40 CFR Part 60
. The board may
require that demonstration be performed for each affected facility.
9. Alternative monitoring requirements when
the effluent from a single affected facility or the combined effluent from two
or more affected facilities are released to the atmosphere through more than
monitoring systems that meet the requirements of 40 CFR Part 75
(i) if a source
is subject to 40 CFR Part 75
or (ii) if the board determines that the
requirements of 40 CFR Part 75
are more appropriate for the source than the
pertinent provisions of this chapter.
F. Upon request of the board, the owner of a
new or modified source subject to the provisions of this chapter shall install,
calibrate, maintain and operate equipment for continuously monitoring and
recording emissions or process parameters or both in accordance with methods
and procedures acceptable to the board.
