Wash. Admin. Code § 246-247-110 - Appendix A - Application information requirements

Current through Register Vol. 21-24, December 15, 2021

(1) Name and address of the facility, and location (latitude and longitude) of the emission unit(s).
(2) Name, title, address, and phone number of the responsible manager.
(3) Identify the type of proposed action for which this application is submitted:
(a) Construction of new emission unit(s);
(b) Modification of existing emission unit(s); identify whether this is a significant modification;
(c) Modification of existing unit(s), unregistered.
(4) If this project is subject to the requirements of the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) contained in chapter 197-11 WAC, provide the name of the lead agency, lead agency contact person, and their phone number.
(5) Describe the chemical and physical processes upstream of the emission unit(s).
(6) Describe the existing and proposed (as applicable) abatement technology. Describe the basis for the use of the proposed system. Include expected efficiency of each control device, and the annual average volumetric flow rate(s) in meters3/sec for the emission unit(s).
(7) Provide conceptual drawings showing all applicable control technology components from the point of entry of radionuclides into the vapor space to release to the environment.
(8) Identify each radionuclide that could contribute greater than ten percent of the potential-to-emit TEDE to the MEI, or greater than 0.1 mrem/yr potential-to-emit TEDE to the MEI.
(9) Describe the effluent monitoring system for the proposed control system. Describe each piece of monitoring equipment and its monitoring capability, including detection limits, for each radionuclide that could contribute greater than ten percent of the potential-to-emit TEDE to the MEI, or greater than 0.1 mrem/yr potential-to-emit TEDE to the MEI, or greater than twenty-five percent of the TEDE to the MEI, after controls. Describe the method for monitoring or calculating those radionuclide emissions. Describe the method with detail sufficient to demonstrate compliance with the applicable requirements.
(10) Indicate the annual possession quantity for each radionuclide.
(11) Indicate the physical form of each radionuclide in inventory: Solid, particulate solids, liquid, or gas.
(12) Indicate the release form of each radionuclide in inventory: Particulate solids, vapor, or gas. Give the chemical form and ICRP 30 solubility class, if known.
(13) Release rates.
(a) New emission unit(s): Give predicted release rates without any emissions control equipment (the potential-to-emit) and with the proposed control equipment using the efficiencies described in subsection (6) of this section.
(b) Modified emission unit(s): Give predicted release rates without any emissions control equipment (the potential-to-emit) and with the existing and proposed control equipment using the efficiencies described in subsection (6) of this section. Provide the latest year's emissions data or emissions estimates.

In all cases, indicate whether the emission unit is operating in a batch or continuous mode.

(14) Identify the MEI by distance and direction from the emission unit(s). The MEI is determined by considering distance, windrose data, presence of vegetable gardens, and meat or milk producing animals at unrestricted areas surrounding the emission unit.
(15) Calculate the TEDE to the MEI using an approved procedure (see WAC 246-247-085 ). For each radionuclide identified in subsection (8) of this section, determine the TEDE to the MEI for existing and proposed emission controls, and without any emission controls (the potential-to-emit) using the release rates from subsection (13) of this section. Provide all input data used in the calculations.
(16) Provide cost factors for construction, operation, and maintenance of the proposed control technology components and system, if a BARCT or ALARACT demonstration is not submitted with the NOC.
(17) Provide an estimate of the lifetime for the facility process with the emission rates provided in this application.
(18) Indicate which of the following control technology standards have been considered and will be complied with in the design and operation of new or modified emission unit(s) described in this application:

ASME/ANSI AG-1, Code on Nuclear Air and Gas Treatment (where there are conflicts in standards with the other listed references, this standard shall take precedence)

ASME/ANSI N509, Nuclear Power Plant Air-Cleaning Units and Components

ASME/ANSI N510, Testing of Nuclear Air Treatment Systems

ANSI/ASME NQA-1, Quality Assurance Program Requirements for Nuclear Facilities

40 C.F.R. 60, Appendix A, Methods 1, 1A, 2, 2A, 2C, 2D, 4, 5, and 17

ANSI/HPS N13.1-1999, Sampling and Monitoring Releases of Airborne Radioactive Substances from the Stacks and Ducts of Nuclear Facilities if the unit's potential-to-emit exceeds 0.1 mrem/yr TEDE to the MEI and the unit is required to meet ANSI/HPS N13.1-1999 under federal regulations.

ANSI N13.1-1969, Guide to Sampling Airborne Radioactive Materials in Nuclear Facilities if the unit's potential-to-emit exceeds 0.1 mrem/yr TEDE to the MEI and the unit is not required to meet ANSI/HPS N13.1-1999 under federal regulations.

For each standard not so indicated, give reason(s) to support adequacy of the design and operation of the emission unit(s) as proposed.
